Note: "FSX" is shorthand for your main FSX folder. (Default: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\)

Extract all files to a temporary folder, and then:

- Create a subfolder \Groundhandling5\ in the main "FSX"\Sound\ folder.
- Move all files *.wav AND sound.ini to folder "FSX"\Sound\Groundhandling5\.
- Move files Groundhandling5_Sound.dll AND rcb_groundhandling5.cab to folder "FSX"\Gauges\.


Add the gauges to the panel of your aircraft(s).

Placing the gauges in your panel is done by adding some lines to the panel.cfg file of your aircraft, located in folder "FSX"\SimObjects\Airplanes\"your aircraft"\Panel\.
The simplest way of doing that is by using Notepad, and Windows Copy/Paste. *** MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR panel.cfg FIRST ***

- In the [Window Titles] section, add the line:


Replace '**' with the next free number.
For e.g. the default FSX 737_800: '**' is 10

- Add the new panel window:

window_size= 0.20,0.09
window_pos= 0.0,0.05
gauge00=RCB_Groundhandling5!PushbackDisplay, 2,2,74,61
gauge01=RCB_Groundhandling5!PushbackStates, 0,0
gauge02=RCB_Groundhandling5!Taxispeed, 79,2,64,61
//gauge03=RCB_Groundhandling!UseToebrakePedals, 0,0
gauge04=RCB_Groundhandling5!Brakes, 146,2,56,61
gauge05=RCB_Groundhandling5_Sound!dsd_xml_sound3, 0,0,0,0, ./Sound/Groundhandling5/Sound.ini

Replace '**' with the same number as used above.

1. Due to differences in the Brakes implementation in FSX with respect to the use of Toebrakes pedals, activate (remove the "//" in front of the line) gauge03= ONLY when you use proportional toebrake pedals, like the CH Pro Pedals. Removing the "//" will force the Taxispeed gauge to use proportional Brake commands (like your pedals) instead of normal Brake commands.
2. The included sound gauge (.dll) is signed by Doug Dawson. So IF FSX asks you, you must "run" this gauge; if you also select the "More" option "All ways trust this publisher", you are never asked again for any of this publishers signed gauges.
3. You can open the Groundhandling window in any view, via menu Views - Instrument Panel. If you want to change views during operation, and like to have the Groundhandling visible permanently, you have to "undock" this window (right-mouseclick - Undock).
