Thread: How can I get the Engine controls to display in a box?

    Default How can I get the Engine controls to display in a box?

    Hi.
    I am running LTV and setting up a couple activities for myself.
    I updated the cabviews for the RS11's with the "RS11 Rebuilts Cabviews" and would like the Engine Controller to display at the bottom of the screen. I'd like to modify so I can see where my settings are on-the-go. I am sure it is simple and that I am missing the obvious. The screenshot is what I'd like to achieve.

    Maybe, I did not explain myself completely.
    I want to be able to see the throttle setting show up in a dialog box when I adjust the throttle. The Rs11 cabview I am using does not show the throttle settings.
    There must be a line in either the XXX.eng file or the CABVIEW/'engineName.cvf' that controls this display. I haven't tumbled across it as yet.
    Does anybody know how I can display the throttle as it adjusts?

    The eng file controls section must match with the cvf file.Why not copy and paste (after saving the originals somewhere) an eng file from a loco that works e.g the sd40-2 ? I have come across this problem several times but for the life of me cannot remember exactly I solved it.

    The throttle setting is also shown in the F5 heads up display.

    Thanks for any replies.
    As I study my problem more, I am going to alias the cabview with one that I like, even though it won't be an actual RS11. I like the RS11 cabview I downloaded, except it doesn't show the throttle adjustment in a dialog box as you adjust and so on. I just have to keep a cabview within the dynamic brake version or not.
    It is just a matter of examining the XXX.cvf and the XXX.eng and make sure they are talking the same language.

    I am not familiar with this cabview,but you have to make sure there is not a mismatch between a combined throttle/dynamic brake statement and separate throttle and brake statements in the eng/cv files.I have found that this has occurred in several payware models.
