This just a small modification enlarging the mouse acting zone to modify the data of some instruments : the Altimeter (to modify the pressure reference) ; the Radio-altimeter (to modify the DH) ; the RMI (switch between VOR/ADF). Maybe already proposed but I didn't find it. By Pierre Fasseaux

This file was deleted by my mistake.This is the original version and it is not replaced by version 2 which provides space for buttons text. Integrated Standby Flight Display (ISFD) is a new glass standby gauge that was introduced with the B737 NG, it is equiped with an internal battery that allows 3 hours of operation without external power. Now all new commercial liners are fitted with such gauge. The gauge provides indicated air speed, altitude, heading, aircraft attitude and QNH. When in range of an ILS the ILS bars appear. When the autopilot mode approach is selected the text APP in green colour appears. As far as I know it is not possible to shift the QNH value from Inch of Hg to Hpa (millibar) in a FIP because the shifting function calls for internal variable like L:xxxxxx that can't be used in a FIP xml program. To solve partially this problem I propose three versions, one with the QNH both in InHg and Hpa (ISFD.xml), one with the QNH in InHg only (ISFD_InHg.xml) and one with the QNH in Hpa only (ISFD_HPA.xml).

This other version of the B737-800 EICAS is the exact replica of the gauge provided with FSX and adapted for the FIP. I created this version just to test the possibility to use circular images as for the N1, EGT and fuel gauges. Not so easy but time is the main factor for success. It comes in two versions, one that shows the fuel flow (to be multiplied by 1000 like the FSX gauge) and the fuel tanks in pounds. The second version shows the fuel flow (no multiplier) and the fuel tanks in gallons. The gauge provides TAT, N1, EGT, N2, Fuel flow, oil pressure, oil temperature, engine vibration, center, right and left fuel tanks quantity. Additionally it provides the possibility to move the N1 green bug (unfortunately decimal for autopilot values is not available for FSX). Two warnings for each engine also appear: start valve open and low oil pressure.

This is a second version of the ISFD for FIP. It was resized to let the left side empty to allow some text through the SaiFlightSimX.xml file to identify the buttons. The gauge provides indicated air speed, altitude, heading, aircraft attitude and QNH. When in range of an ILS the ILS bars appear. When the autopilot mode approach is selected the text APP in green colour appears.

Following a remark from a Canadian simer that the speed gauges didn't provide the right True Air Speed (TAS) during cold weather conditions at very low altitude because theconditions make the True Air Speed (TAS) below the Indicated Air Speed I did change some values to get the correct TAS whatever are the weather conditions.

This tutorial explains how to use multiple folders to store the FIP files instead of using the standard Gauges folder. This provides an easy way to manage all your FIP files without the risk to delete a wrong file or to modify a file that is valid for more than one FIP.

Better luminousity in FS2004. Three classic analog clocks. Breitling-, Longines- or Douglas-like, w/ or w/o mounting. The clocks show the local time when starting the situation then the hour hand DOES NOT FOLLOW automatically the timezone crossings ! FSX and FS 2004 stand alone XML gauges. By Pierre Fasseaux

The difference with v1 is just the fact that the buzzer sounds only once and only while descending. For FSX and FS 2004 stand alone XML gauge in two models (RG or fixed gear). Shows AGL and preselected DH with light and sound warnings. Sound gauge by Doug Dawson. By Pierre Fasseaux
