For noobs like me... What exactly does this do?
I use a cockpit similar to the one shown by Jetjocke10 above. The Radio etc. Panels are working mostly fine under Aerofly as do the Controls. However, I own 9 of the Flight Instrument Panels (FIPs) seen at the top (e.g. airspeed indicator, altimeter, and such). They're little boxes which can be assigned gauges flexibly.
I was able to bring these to live in all simulators I use (FSX, Prepar3D, X-Plane, and even the new MSFS) in one or another way, but not AeroflyFS2. I (and others) plead for support here in the forum (you may want to look up my old contributions on this, Jan) but fell on deaf ears again and again.
I contacted external sources, including Logitech and the maker of an X-Plane support program, but no one was willing to get active. Even SPAD.neXt tried an initial (alpha) stab years ago but removed it soon.
I only hope it to materialize this time and am deeply grateful to the author of SPAD.neXt for working on FIP support. Many cockpit builders rely on FIP support.
Kind regards, Michael
