Remodelled/renewed Saitek FIP
We’re pleased to offer you, on behalf of Marc Leydecker aka Belga12345, his remodelled, renewed, refreshing Saitek FIP (Flight Instrument Panel(s).
At X-Plained we’re exited about what Marc did. Yes, we all know Mac from his gorgeous airports, and once and a while from his extraordinary paintings (aircraft liveries), but this area is new to Marc although after many … many hours spend with it, Marc can call himself an expert to Saitek FIPs. What is the whole idea and what did Marc?
For those simmers who own one or more Saitek FIP(s), there’s good … oh no, great news. Marc didn’t like the different instrument images on the FIP(s). He found them, let’s be honest, ugly and from that moment on, he started to create his own FIP instruments. Not one as an example what’s possible, not two, but 21 different instruments and all, of course, functional. So how does this work?
Via the download button below, you download the package (Belga12345-Saitek-FIP.zip), unzip it and you end up with a folder named “Belga12345-Saitek-FIP.zip Folder” with the following contents:
Don’t do anything yet, but open the Belga12345 installation manual first. It’s not long, but very useful and important too since it tells you where to get something from and how to arrange the FIP gauges and screens. To get a good idea what Marc made for Saitek FIP, scroll completely to the end of this page and see all the instruments he made. Impressive, isn’t it?
Good luck, but above all, have fun with your new FIP!
Important note (thanks to user Museumkeeper):
In case you face for example this problem “I unfortunately could not get it to work following Marc’s instructions. Does this still work with Windows 10, new logitech drivers etc.”, then this solution could help namely “Go to XSaitekProFlight folder in X-PLANE Plugins file after you have loaded the FIP driver and plugin and in this file, open the data file. Add the files inside the Belga-Saitek-FIP_v1/Belga_FIP_gauges/data folder and you should then have seven entries. Delete the XPL_LogiPlugin folder and then rename the XSaitekProFlight folder the same as the one you have just deleted, exit and run x-plane.”
