Note that the KFC 200 series Nav instruments don't work in the Ryan Navion, Socata ST 10 Diplomat, and Grob GF 200.
Is this because Rembrant is no longer available?

why do you thing Rembrandt is no longer available? it absolutely is but not if you are using ALS or the basic/default renderer...

"Why not?" said Gurder.

Because with ALS off I get nothing when clicking on "Rembrandt Options". Also because I had a vague recollection the Navion instrument panel may have once required it. Grasping at straws trying to figure out why the Nav Radio instruments for these nice airplanes no longer work.

AFAIK, you cannot enable/disable Rembrandt while in the sim... you have to do it from the launcher or the command line and once in, that's it until you exit and start again with a different renderer enabled...

Thank you. Found and engaged Rembrandt in launcher; ruled out its non selection having any influence on failure of KFC 200 series and other radio Nav instruments in Navion. Will have to keep looking. Thanks again for the info. Kind Regards.

Got KFC200 (VOR/ILS) instrument working in Ryan-Navion.

At end of Ryan-Navion\Systems\Instrumentation.xml added the following:

<nav-radio>
<name>nav</name>
<number>0</number>
</nav-radio >
:D
P.S. Fixed turn-indicator: additionally added to Ryan-Navion\Systems\Instrumentation.xml the following:

<turn-indicator>
<name>turn-indicator</name>
<number>0</number>
<turn-indicator>
:)

Addendum: see "navion adf and compass cards":

WoodSTokk post of 1/7/2019 ,7:57 am gives code addition to make instrument cards rotate.

Dilbert post of 1/7/2019, 6.29 pm describes code change to get full takeoff rpm.

Kind Regards
