Did you select the 738/9 with no VC ( virtual Cockpit )?Just a thought.

The 2D plane is just what it sounds like, only the 2D panel is visible.To view the side views fly the VC or the VC and Cabin.

Roar- Yes, all 2D side views DO exist for all the PMDG 737 models.Here's a screenie with 2D Views L/R Fwd showing. I'm not sure why you are having a problem.Alex ReidWestJet 737 Dawn CYYJ (AMD XP2200, GeForce FX5200 GPUs)http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/189801.jpg

I was told form support that its NOT sideviews in "2D cockpit only" anymore. I have to look up those files on the file-library, but I only find sideviews for the 747, Can anyone help me? Strange that its not sideviews in 800/900 but it is in the 600/700.......Roar

Roar,I had the same problem and here is what I did to fix it. Open your PMDG 737-700 folder in your main FS9 Aircraft folder (not the 737-700-winglets folder). Copy and paste the 'panel' folder to your PMDG 737-800 folder (again, not the winglets folder). Then overwrite when prompted. Scott.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that the panels in the 737-600/700/800/900 are identical.Scott

Roar,Sounds as though you have some files missing in the 2D panel folder. I have just checked my 738/9 and have side views in the 2D panel which can be identified in the 2D panel folder {they are, of course, different and separate files to the VC panel side views}.John R

thanksWhat date from is your installed 738/9?I had to order a "EXTENDED DOWNLOAD" since I had a diskcrash and no backup. They sent me a download-link for reinstalling the 737NG

Roar,My 737 8/9 is the CD version. As an example, look for file 737NG_LB.BMP in the "panel" folder. This is the left rear side view and is not just a copy from the VC but a separate photo based view.John R
