737 MAX 8 Panel - MFD Problems

Unread post by ytayj »

Does anyone else have this issue with Philippe Marion's panel?

When you click on the MFD dial , the display changes to centered and there's no way to get it back onto expanded, even if you click the CTR button. Further, the mouseover text looks like this:
The attachment 20200912142451_1.jpg is no longer available
The attachment 20200912142454_1.jpg is no longer available
The text looks like something's missing.

I've tried this on two separate FSX Steam installs, both with and without the beta installed, and I've even tried installing the panel from Simviation onto the default 738, and the problem still occurs. Does anyone have a fix, or know how to contact the developer?

Thanks.

Quick edit: I found Philippe's email in the documentation, so I'm going to contact him about this, but if anyone has a fix in the meantime, feel free to reply with it.
Quick edit 2: I'm gonna bring it up on the Simviation forums first, since he seems to be active on there.

Philippe has helpfully replied to my issue on Simviation: https://forums.simviation.com/phpBB3/vi ... 1&t=180387
I fixed it in a later version that I used in my Boeing 737-500 Air Senegal, also published on Simviation.

FSX/P3D Boeing 737-530 Air Senegal (Category: FSX > Civil Jets)

DOWNLOAD the above aircraft.

TO INSTALL in another B737 already using "panel.wide" V2, I recommend you only replace the complete gauge folder "PhmB737", in "panel.wide".

The changed file is "efis_control_panel.xml" (if you only want to change the actual file).
