How to create and use a custom gauge ?

Postby elior77 » Fri Dec 22, 2017 9:34 am

Hey,

I'll try to be as clear as I can, I would like to create a new gauge for a custom input (ms3), I got the gauge ready and every thing is working fine, when I try use it again (right click on a different gauge and the choosing it from generic input) it loads with out all the properties I set to it... any way to save it right ?

Thanks !

Can I set a custom gauge that will display caculted data from two inputs ?

Like delta IC temp = after IC - before IC

and delta intake temp = mat - turbo inlet

Thanks !

Sorry for the delayed response, I have been out of town.

Yes, you can.

To get the delta of 2 channels, you need to create your own new OutputChannel.

The easiest way to do that is to use the Channel Editor in TunerStudio MS Ultra, but you can also do it with a custom.ini in the [OutputChannel] section.

The syntax is pretty straight forward:

YourNewChannel = { someExistingChannel - someOtherExistingChannel }, "Units"

YourNewChannel can be any name you want. Note: if the name you give it already exists, it will over ride that channel.

Now on the dashboard you can assign any gauge to use your new OutputChannel in the gauge Properties dialog.
