Hi All, I tried the old Standard Maltby edits to the panel.cfg to change units of measure from KGs to LBS. (fuel flow from KGH to PPH, Fuel load from KG to LB) The fuel flow works, the fuel Qty needle never moves off of zero though the gauge and face display corectly.Gauges for both KG and LBS are still in the gauge .CAB file. Can this be added ?

What's the date (LAST EDITED DATE) of the BAC ONE-ELEVEN panels gauges CAB file you're currently using ?
You should be using the panels, and their gauges CAB files, that we "currently offer" .... and then using these panels/gauges with the aircraft base packs (models and FDE) we currently offer also.
You should not .... and should not need to ... edit anything at all and beyond what we supply here at the moment.
Don't try'n mix new data/the data we offer with older/earlier data (if you're doing that at all) ... and by virtue of the fact we don't know how much earlier the files you already have might be since DM did update his own data relatively frequently.
Recommended procedure is .... "DUMP WHATEVER YOU EARLIER HAD" (panels and base packs/textures .... "THE LOT") .... and replace it all with the data we currently offer "HERE".
Don't know if this'll resolve your issue since the fixes we've applied, were applied on the basis of what we knew was still an issue with the last DMFS releases, but. that's not to say other issues may still be evident and undetected that need addressing .... and which is why we're dependent upon "NEW" feed back such as yours.
I'm using only the current files in the latest HJG update. The LBS. gauges are present in the current .cab file and the Fuel flow works perfectly, however the fuel qty. gauges display properly, but act as if they are unpowered. Otherwise everything works just great. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Stan

"THANKS" for that .... and same for you and yours too
That may be something we need to look at in the future.
If there is any issue there then it's "an inherited one" .... and not something we were aware of the existence of.
Fortunately that's a detail which "DOES NOT" affect the way everything else/the simulation functions .... so .... we'll bear in mind what you've reported in the hope we may be able address it per a later update.
Just looked at mine .... my own ONE-ELEVEN panel installations.
FF and FQ are both "intentionally" displayed in metric KG's for these simulations .... and which is correct so far as I'm aware.
It's possible US acquired ONE-ELEVENS may have been configured to display FF and FQ in imperial LB's .... but .... that's just a guess on my part.
On the basis of my own installation (using what we now offer here) everything seems to be displaying and working correctly (in KG's) for me.
If their are alternative LB's configured gauges in the CAB files for these panels then this predates my knowledge of these panels .... such might be left over and dormant there (non-configured) from much earlier panel edits than I'm familiar with .... and also .... if employed "might" (possibly) require an FDE editing to make them work.
