Thread: Can FS2000 use .Cab style gauges?

  1. Default Can FS2000 use .Cab style gauges?

    One of the panels I was using for FS2000 installed a .CAB file in the gauges folder. Can Fs2000 use that format or will it
    ignore them?

    Thanks, Guys!

    Give the panel a try.

    If not then unzip the .cab file and cut and paste the gauge files into the Gauges folder as normal. Then the panel should work fine.

    Thanks, Jim! I installed about 20 birds today and was cleaning up the gauges folder when I noticed it! I'll have to figure which panel it was for!


    Okay, here's the panel it came from, an FS2k2 panel by Kazunori Ito! The panel is visually missing 8 gauges from the .cab file, so FS2000 doesn't use .cab gauges!! Later today, I'll unarchive the gauges from the archive without the .xml and see if they work! LOL!
