To 'jetheat' or not to 'jetheat'

Hello everybody. I am very grateful towards the PA A320 creators. Coupled with Francois FD-FMC, I can say it's the best freeware for FSX so far. However, I am in a dilemma with the A320, to be more precise, with the CFM models. It goes as follows: I have to choose whether to use the model with wing ...

Francois, my A320 gauges are working correctly. I just want to edit a gauge of another aircraft and because you know about gauges, I just wanted to ask.

Re: Project FMC simplified for Project Airbus

Francois, I just wanted to ask you something: is it possible to have the a gauge's background visibility linked to the battery master switch position? Something like if the battery is on, you can see the background, but if the battery is off, then you can't.

Thank you for your answer.
