What you need to know about aircraft support

fipgauges.com does not officially support ANY 3th Party aircraft, while I do my best to add SOME compatability snippets for some PMDG and FBW aircraft not all functions or output may be correct. Do not buy gauges on the assumption it will work 100% on your third party aircraft then expext fipgauges.com to get it working for you. Having said that I do work with the community to identify issues on my discord and I TRY to implement work arounds for core functions but nothing is guaranteed.

My gauges are not study level and are not replicas of any specific aircraft even those with say "Cessna", "a320" or "737" in the title for example.

I am currently in the process of testing new development on gauges to support all aircraft. By softcoding variables I can allow customers to map their own variables to dummy gauge variables. However there may be some gauges that may not be able to be converted. This is very much work in progress. This page will be updated when I have more information on progress. Please join my discord if you have gauges that dont work on your 3rd party aircraft as Im collecting information on any incompatabilities. Please do not email or use contact us for reporting 3rd party incompatibility. Issues with incompatibility need to be reported to my discord.

Most gauges are compatible with all aircraft that come INCLUDED with the supported simulators so far. See supported simulators page.

Gauges may not be fully compatible with "Payware", "3rd Party", "Add-on" or "Modded" aircraft. I am currently looking at ways to support aircraft that replace SIMCONNECT variables with their own Local Variables (LVARS). Issues with incompatibility can to be reported to my discord, but there is no gurantee a solution can be implemented.

Most freeware aircraft use SIMCONNECT Variables conforming to Microsoft SIMCONNECT standards and will work, but thats not to say there arnt any freeware aircraft that use LVARS.

My Legacy hardcoded PMDG support is getting stripped out in favour of programmable softcoded variables, while this process is ongoing you may find updated gauges will stop responding to some functions. Please report anything broken on my discord channel.

My Legacy hardcoded A2A support is getting stripped out in favour of programmable softcoded variables, while this process is ongoing you may find updated gauges will stop responding to some functions. Please report anything broken on my discord channel.
