Thread: Dreamfleet Dakota 64-Bit... again

  1. Default Dreamfleet Dakota 64-Bit... again

    Hi All,

    I have been a fan of the FSX Dreamfleet Dakota which I bought it on release and, like many others, would really like to get it working in Win 7/64 having recently made the change from XP/32.

    I know that this is an old issue and I have read as many of the posts on the problem as I could find but I would like to clarify some points and get some help if at all possible. I have recently purchased the Reality XP GNS530 and I was hoping to use it in the Dreamfleet Dakota.

    I have made one attempt to install it with mixed success. With the advice of the many useful posts here and elsewhere I managed to avoid the CTD problem by not installing the GNS430/Trainer and replacing the DF GNS references with the new Reality XP device BUT many of the other guages were not working, eg the dropdown Dreamfleet Configuration panel, the fuel selector, the fuel readout panel etc. I did a full install from the red airplane wrapper. Perhaps my problems were due to Win 7/64 UAC/AV issues?

    It would be great if I could get some advice on the correct steps to take to implement the install.

    Also, do I also have to purchase the XP FLT/FLN guages, do I need both and what functionality do I lose without these. Is the installation straightforward?

    Many thanks, in advance, for any help.

    You need both the FLT and FLN gauges.
    Send me an email and I'll send you my panel.cfg. If possible, let me know what resolution you run FSX at ( I run at 1920 x 1080).

    {EDIT} See below. I posted my actual panel.cfg

    Here's my panel.cfg using both the FLT and FLN gauges: I run FSX at 1920 x 1080. However, I've also saved it in different resolutions, so let me know if you need another one. I have it in 1024, 1280, and 1680 (the one I use is 1680).
