Re: Project FMC simplified for Project Airbus

Unless François changed something, the 1+F auto logic is in, with a bit of a bug in that the flaps will auto-retract to 1 when accelerating past 100 KIAS.

So, other thing, if someone can explain to me what is the "crank" mode to start engine ? Block igniters and then run the starter. Useful for clearing vapors or pools of fluids from the engine or preinjecting some fuel. See here: https://www.metabunk.org/attachments/docslide-us_a-320-engine-pdf.16733/

Re: Project FMC simplified for Project Airbus

Gauge bitmaps are not in 32 bit format and therefor do not support alpha channels. If their image properties are set to "Transparent=True" in the gauge (which I think is default), then pure black (RGB 0,0,0) is drawn as transparent.
