Not too sure what the process is to importing these onto a new PC, but as far as I can tell...
1. You will need to unzip and then import the gauges first to get the flight status displays to work
2. The projects need to be unzipped and the folder placed in the projects folder.

After that not entirely sure, suspect you will not be able to load the projects without the logs and video being present. I know that the project contain the EggTimer and Raven data profiles but there is no import/export option for these so not sure if the app will automatically pick those up or not. Also not sure about the data types either.

Anyway I created 2 profiles for each altimiter a standard one that just takes the standard log files in csv format. The others are enhanced which have additional definitions for max velocity, Apogee and the flight Status. To get the data into the enhanced format you need to use the spreadsheet to convert the standard csv file. On the EggTimer, I found that I needed to add a zero line at the beginning as the first entry started just into the flight. The only issue was that dash ware will ignore a line if it is all zeros so I had to set the intial altitude to 0.1feet. Once the spreadsheet is created as require, you just need to save it as a csv, then you can use enhanced data profile to load it into dash ware. Hope this makes some sense.

Let me know how you go, I'm happy to supply the additional file if I can find a way.

Was inspired by the Space X barge landing today so made up gauges in the Space X style.

After the success of the Crew Dragon demonstration mission, I thought I’d see if I could make Dashware gauges that are styled after the new ones SpaceX is using. Let me know if you’re interested in using these in your own videos.
