MD11 PMDG 2D Panel Bug

Recommended Posts

Not expecting a responce, just a heads up for the guy's creating the next patch.I fly with the virtual cockpit and 2D sub panels undocked to 2 seperate monitors. All is well except the Glareshield (Autopilot, EFIS controls etc)The problem is the Digits do not move on the undocked autopilot panel when in VC, they only move when I go back to the 2D cockpit.So to clarify, if I set an altitude of 35000ft while in the VC the altitude will not update in the undocked panel (it will update on the VC Panel) when I switch back to the 2D panel, the undocked panel will then update to 35000ftnot a big deal as I can still see any heading and altitude modifications on the PFD but thought I would let you guy's know.CheersRobert Prest

Robert,How are you bringing up the glareshield 2D pop-up panel? If you just undock the glareshiled from the 2D panel or use the FS instruments menu to select the glareshield window, this will not work. Instead, you should be using the keyboard command assigned from the PMDG menu for that. This will will display a pop-up panel that is specifically designed to work (and properly refresh) with the VC.

Thanks, yes I go to windowed mode and bring up the sub panels from the FS instruments menu and drag to other monitors. Will try the correct way you mentioned when I get home.Thanks for the fast responceRob
