In Action:


Install instructions:

  1. locate X-Plane install folder
  2. go into sub dirs Resources\plugins
  3. create folder e.g. "PluginSaitekInstrumentPanel" in plugins folder
  4. paste win.xpl and image files here
  5. instead of step 3 + 4 you could unzip file from download section directly into plugins folder
  6. startup X-Plane with plugged-in and working (image rotation should be seen) Saitek Instrument Panel
  7. have fun ;)

Current windows development settings:

    • X86
    • XPLM200=1NDEBUG

  • WTL (free c++ classes to use with Express editions of Visual Studio, so may only with MS VS 2010 Express this is needed, add this to C++ additional include dirs)
