I tried turning the small needle using the radians way, but I found this method so fast to execute the turns that when I moves the Condition Lever with ‘heavy hands’ the needle jumps in half circles. Needs move the lever carefully slow for have smooth needle turns.
But so, as the code is, the gauge does exactly what must to do!
This ‘RPM Gauge’ can be installed in any aircraft equipped with a turboprop engine and needs emulate the Garrett one. Also you will need an accordingly Garrett main sound package, and build with your sound editor a set of three sounds for the acceleration phase , sustain at 100% RPM phase sound and the decrease RPM phase sounds.
Dismount from the panel the N2 gauge –gas producer- (if installed).
The gauge code includes call’s to Doug Dawson Sound Gauge which has is own copyright.
Doug Dawson ‘XML Sound Gauge’ is a ‘Must-Have’ freeware tool for play extra sounds simultaneously with the main FS sounds.
The file name: anddsd_xml_sound2.zip for download from the AVSIM library.
The pack contains good instructions with a tutorial for implement the ‘XML Sound Gauge’
Thanks Doug for your dedication!
