New revision. The GPU should work more reliably. Sound gauge file name change to avoid other add-ons accidentially overwriting it with older versions. The sound gauge will now be out of harm's way.

Old users:
Read the documentation parts marked in pink. Replace "RM3_Custom_BK.xml".
Change the name of the sound gauge in the panel.cfg files from "dsd_fsx_xml_sound.gau" to "RM3_dsd_xml_sound.gau" and copy the .gau file from the "Gauges" folder into "FSX\Gauges".


New users:
Read the manual.

Updated the mod release a bit. There was a bug in RM3_Custom_BK.xml that made the Metro impossible to taxi without NWS.

There's now a mention of the 2D popup mod and the Readme accounts for XMLTools 2.0.1 now.


The download link remains the same.

I've published a new version of the mod package.

The 2D panel popup mod previously mentioned is now integrated and features additional cockpit lighting controls, which should avoid the annoying dive for the bottom of the console.

Users of the load/save module should add the "Metro_IIIC" folder to the "panel" folder(s) as it contains an edited version of the RM3_SYSTEM.xml gauge with disabled auto-initialization for some switches. This should make loading a panel state more reliable as only the switch configuration from the save file is used.

Other than that, just a few tweaks to the NWS logic in RM3_Custom_BK.xml in an attempt to stop the NWS-related annunciator lights from flickering. It seems slightly better now, but still no cigar.

The download link is, as usual:

Here's a new release of the mods. Nothing new in terms of features, just some organizational changes. So if you've got everything up and running, you don't have to upgrade.

- Incorporated elevator trim beep (no ther mods needed anymore)
- The aircraft save file name is now generated from its title (see aircraft.cfg)
- Includes v5.2.3 of DSD_XML_Sound.gau (previous version was v5.2.0)
- The cockpit sound mod is handled differently now (a copy in each "panel" folder instead of "Gauges", will make .ini path issues less likely)
- Includes a new .ini file for use with LZamm's EHSI
- Some documentation changes
