[Flightgear-devel] Aileron and Rudder Trim indicators for the default HUD

2011-03-21 Thread TDO_Brandano -
I have added a couple of small indicators to the standard HUD, with the same format as that used for the pitch trim indicator. Attached is a patch with my small modification. It's really quite a small modification, but I find it useful mainly for helicopters, and since it's of little

This is nitpicking. The original files are released under the GPL v2 terms. That licence cannot be revocated by anyone, not even by the author, though he may choose to re-release the files with another licence. The terms of the unmodified GPL v2 allow the relicencing by 3rd parties with

The simplest way is to edit that line of code and compile FGFS. After 2.4 is out this might get implemented by the committers, and then you could grab a precompiled binary from the Hudson/Jenkins automatic build system. In any case a little patience seems to be the only essential requirement.
