Great news for cockpit builders using X-plane as their simulator program.  Flight illusion is releasing an X-Plane compatible version of their interface, allowing all the FI gauges to be connected and tweaked. There is even better news for X-plane pilots.

Compared to MS-FS the advantage is that no extra "in between" like FSUIPC is needed. Hence it is possible to update the information at almost 50 times per second (FS has a 10/second update rate). This results in even smoother gauge movement. The new software is X-Plane 8 and 9 compatibility. We are now making sure to get as many indexes in as possible (equal to offsets in Flight Simulator).

Another advantage over the FS version is that all the gauges as well as the engine cluster are embedded in the program. No need to run 2 separate programs. Flight illusion invites X-Plane users to download the interface and take a look at how it's functioning, even if they don't have gauges. That'll show you how easy the software works.

Meanwhile, Austin Meyer, the creator of X-Plane is continuing to work on an embedded interface that connects from within X-Plane. We'll inform you about his progress in the future.
