Adjusting the runway view

Recommended Posts

I've downloaded a couple of the Lancair files from this site and am perplexed as to the reason the runway doesn't extend down beyond the top of the 2-D panel. I can drag the window down with my mouse to below the panel to fill the blank part of the screen and fly the rest of the flight, but when I change aircraft or close out the flight and return later the black void returns. Is this a problem with FS98 and FS2K designed aircraft not being able to make the cross or is there a fix in the aircraft.cfg or other cfg file that's available?>:-)

Aichaser,You have to go to the "panel CFG" to adjust that. Usually at the very bottom you will see an entry "default view". You have to adjust the "size_y" value to fill the space above the panel. Try changing that value to a larger number to fill in the gap. I believe +/-8000 is full screen and +/-4000 is half so according to how high the panel comes on the screen is how you will make the setting. This will be a permanent change!!!!! maxsdad

Thanx Maxsdad,You're correct. I downloaded the free FS PanelStudio guide from FSPanelStudio.com and did some digging around. There's a wealth of info in there regarding panel code even if you're not interested in purchasing the product. AIChaser:)

AIChaser,Thanks for the reminder.I do use FSPS and I went to their site and downloaded the latest updates. I was two behind. It's tough to keep up with all the software I have as far as updates are concerned. Usually someone on AVSIM will mention one then I go get it.Glad I could help.maxsdad
