Oh, and there is nothing in the airplane file that says gauges.

Where did you download the Schweizer 2-33 Glider from??? If from here, then it is for FS98/FS2002.

Otherwise, I need to see your full "aircraft.cfg" file. The file type is .CFG.

Post up the full thing as below:

I downloaded it from here. So it's not for FSX then. oops, I should have noticed that. Sry to trouble you. I'll install my FS 2002 or 98 and see if it works that way. Thanks for the help. I'll check back with an update.

Yepper, you got something for FS8/FS2002. It will not work in FSX.

Hate to say it won't work in FSX, but at least you know where the problem is.
