Keys in wrong places on widescreen

Recommended Posts

Guest Lennie Lyon

Hi All, I have installed PMDG 747 onto my laptop, which is a widescreen with Vista OP and FS9 installed, but it cant be flown because the keys in the FMC are not where the buttons are,they are slightly to right and above the buttons on the screen, is this something wrong with the program or is some to do with it being a widescreen.....Please help as I would like to fly it on the laptop.....Lennie......

VC or 2D? The 2D panel requires a 4:3 aspect ratio such as 1600x1200, but I've read that widescreen users rely on the VC cockpit. I've assigned all the panels to keyboard shortcuts, so I bring up the FMC with an F, overhead with O, etc. I think this or a variation might work for you. (be sure to delete FS default keyboard commands before assigning to PMDG). The CDU keyboard function allows you to enter info with the keyboard instead of the mouse. Hope you get it working.
