Yes Mark. The FS2002 panel is almost identical to the HJG supplied panel for the ARJ. I used your panel yesterday in your ARJ and it only required an update gauge files for: Wiskey compass, Clock, Cessna Trim, and the Sound gauge. In window 01 gauges 53 and 54 gear and wind gauge has to be stopped with simple hash tags or you get the warning that they are not compatible. Those two are not in the FS2002 panel.
The only other thing that I have noticed in both panels is the Auto Throttle. It is quite twitchy in both panel editions. Other than that it works superbly. Don't know what the wind and gear gauge does, but everything else works really nice. The HJG panel with the above tweaking does seem to work much better. The view has to be lowered, but then again even many FSX a/c has to be also.
I can send you the edited panels cfg's via e-mail if you want. Interesting.

That'll be right .... because the GEAR WIND gauge and its supporting WAV (this provides the sound of rushing air in proportion to airspeed when the landing gear is extended) can't work in FSX .... sadly.
Rather than comment those gauge files out of the PANEL.CFG (if I understand you correctly) you should be able to just select "IGNORE/LOAD ANYWAY" (or words to that effect .... when prompted by the advisory placard in regard to such gauge incompatibility detections) and everything should then still load, and perform, fine .... so far as I'm aware.
I won't bother you for the CFG .... since I can't use it not being an FSX user .... and I don't propose further editing the 2 ARJ/BAe panels we currently host .... and nor can we do so anyway without the original source data. Nor do I propose to import "other versions of these same panels" either (different configurations of these panels would be fine .... but .... it becomes too complex to properly administrate other versions of the same in conjunction with what we already host) .... HOWEVER .... I am currently assessing "a much simpler panel version" (for both ARJ and BAe application) .... but .... which is FS2004 compatible only.
Of course we are primarily an FS2004 based website .... albeit a lot of what we offer is FSX portable too .... unless otherwise stated within our forum base manuals and the installation instructions accompanying the files we offer.
Thanks anyway though Denny

It shouldn't be.
Our own BAe panel "is" AT equipped and which should be a simple matter of dialing up the desired IAS airspeed and then engaging the system .... and the simulation will then take care of itself (isn't FS delightfully simple in comparison to the real world ? ) .... "automatically" adjusting power in proportion to pitch and weight. One needs to keep an eye on it from around 20,000 FT (I think it is) though .... as it's "intentionally" compiled to auto-transition from IAS airspeed to MACH velocity at around this altitude. If not vigilant then one might then find oneself progressively short of speed somewhat thereafter, so, keep an eye on it, and be prepared to adjust the selected/indicated airspeed/velocity or pitch, or both around the time of this auto-transition I don't know if the AT system within your earlier (than ours) version FS.COM hosted BAe panel is compiled to do the same as ours though.
Our own ARJ panel doesn't feature an AT though. Instead it uses IAS CLIMB/PITCH MODE feature .... which requires a specific airspeed to be acquired first .... then .... the IAS PITCH MODE engaged .... and which results in the AP then "automatically" adjusting pitch in proportion to power setting in order to maintain the selected IAS airspeed/MACH velocity. This system works well too, but, is probably a little more difficult to manage .... for the lesser experienced.
What I like is the FDE's on your stuff. So much smoother, and responsive.
Thanks for sharing that Denny.... because Mike, George, and myself put "a hell of a lot" of effort into trying to perfect all of our FDE's .... right down to replicating variations between aircraft types and configurations to try'n ensure the best possible virtual flight experience and aircraft type representation .... usually only restricted by the limitations of FS itself

In FSX if one clicks load the first time, which I did, then it will always try to load. I don't think I can go back and redo it, but I could try. Anyway thanks for the info, and I've had much pleasure in playing with these. Now back to loading my IA Traffic files. Dennu
