X-Panels

Panels for control systems in Boeing 737

Info:

Software for control systems in Boeing 737. You can use app on local or networked PC. App is writen for best compability with Zibo 737 but it also works with others 737 (Ultimate 737). Default 737 aren't fully compatible. Panels don't use any textures, graphic interface is writen with used vector graphics so panels are resolution independent and in any sizes will be looks good.
Remember: App is still in development and may have some bugs. If You saw some unusual behaviors write to me and send a logfile. Contact You may find on this page.

Feautures:

- works with: Zibo 737, Ultimate 737-900 (another 737 not tested, but if they're use the same DataRefs and commands it will be work)
- save and load separate panel positions in configuration files
- resolution independent (created with scalabe graphics)
- update checking
- no performance impact
- no required any plugins
- change panels background color
- implemented all Zibo 737 used functions for panel (unless I forgot something)
- up to 5 full configurable warning lights panels (from 1x1 to 13x13) 90% of warnings works (I can't find the others yet or not implemented)
