How to remove Canopy Frame in un-docked views?

Recommended Posts

I have 3 monitors, and am running 3 views, two of which are undocked.On the FWD/Left & FWD/Right views you can see part of the cockpit canopy frame, and I want to get rid of them. How can I do that?I've tried the following:- Remove all reference to VCOCKPIT from the Panel.CFG files- Made some of the panel.bmp files totally black (hoping that would translate to being transparent).- Verified undocked views ARE NOT in Virtual Cockpit mode.I'm using a German Alphajet (light attack fighter) and I really need to get rid of the canopy frames. Anyone have other ideas I can try?PS: Also I would like to be able to assign the HUD to an undocked view, is that possible?Thanks in advance!- Ron

It's been a while since I done this non-spanned, but don't you just click on each undocked view and hit W to cycle through cockpit showing or not. It certainly works for the forward view.Gary

This also means you need to create BMPs for those views.A good example of where I've implemented this is in the 'Simshed' Nimrod you can download it from http://www.simshed.co.uk/nimrod.htmlHere is a code sample to give you an idea[VIEWS]VIEW_FORWARD_WINDOWS=MAIN_PANEL,THROTTLE_PANEL,100,130,VIEW_FORWARD_DIR=-1.000, 0.000, 0.000VIEW_FORWARD_RIGHT_WINDOWS=30VIEW_RIGHT_WINDOWS=31VIEW_REAR_RIGHT_WINDOWS=32VIEW_REAR_WINDOWS=33VIEW_REAR_ZOOM=1.000VIEW_REAR_DIR=2.000, 0.000, 0.000VIEW_REAR_LEFT_WINDOWS=34VIEW_LEFT_WINDOWS=35VIEW_FORWARD_LEFT_WINDOWS=36VIEW_UP_WINDOWS=37VIEW_UP_DIR=-15.000, 0.000, 0.000VIEW_FORWARD_UP_WINDOWS=38//--------------------------------------------------------[Fixed Window30]file=FORWARD_RIGHT.bmp position=7visible=0ident=30render_3d_window=1nomenu=1window_size= 1.000, 1.000window_pos= 0.000, 0.000//--------------------------------------------------------[Fixed Window31]file=RIGHT.bmp position=7visible=0ident=31render_3d_window=1nomenu=1window_size= 1.000, 1.000window_pos= 0.000, 0.000//--------------------------------------------------------[Fixed Window32]file=REAR_RIGHT.bmp position=7visible=0ident=32render_3d_window=1nomenu=1window_size= 1.000, 1.000window_pos= 0.000, 0.000etc etc etcRegardsJim

Thanks everyone for the feedback.I'll try the "W" command first since that has the least amount of work involved, then I'll move to the window definitions in the panel.cfg and see if that resolves it.Thanks again for your feedback!- Ron
