    Hi there,

    Re: Sharing touchscreen setups

    I like the idea of Touchscreen in a "desktop" cockpit because if gives a more realistic feeling compared to mousing.
    So I have bought a 22" screen to hold all instruments in one go.
    I started out with FSX and default instruments moved to this screen, but for other reasons I changed to X-Plane in the middle of that process. A reason for that was also, that Windows do not agree with me, and all my normal work is on the Mac platform.
    X-plane makes it a lot easier to make a panel and talk with another computer by the use of the default Planemaker.
    However I wanted even more control, and started a RealBasic project for the Touchscreen. The enclosed show an early state of the panel. All except the Map is my own and I use a free program called XHSI on top for that.

    One problem exists still, because there are no OS X Touch part driver for my screen (viewing is fine though). Hope to solve that, but if not I could go "Windows" on the computer that shows the panel (RealBasic is multiplatform)

    To Sum up, my approach is now RealBasic programming and I am wondering if there are others doing the same ?
    Maybe I should add that I have solved the problem of reading X-plane data using UDP protocol and are able to send key strokes back to X-Plane the same way. In the end very simple and a few code lines, but took some time to figure out

    Re: Sharing touchscreen setups

    I`ve build my panel-mods for the B200.

    See the b200 forum
    http://sdmaus.com/kingair/index.php/topic,396.0.html

    The files for the Digital-Aviation DO27 fs2004 mods are there in a first version.
    I changed 3 .xml gauge-files to be used by left clicks.

    DO27_Panelmod_Touchscreen.zip

    The pictire is bad, but good enough to see what it looks like.

    If you find interrest in it please make a comment.

    regards /Hendrik/
