2D point of view gets wrong after SP1

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,I installed SP1, and now, in my 2D front view, the point of view looks completely down at the Runway.I can correct that with the Shift-Q command, but as soon as I look left or right, the point of view is reset to the original value and looks down again.Anybody noticing this problem ? Do you know how to fix it ?Thanks.

I am really sorry, but I can't find thie thread that corrects this. Can someone please guide me through this. I don't see the readme files and I can't find the .cfg files. I need a really step by step to fix the downward looking 2D problem after installing the new update just now.

Go to where your fsx is located select fsx- than select simobjects- than select airplanes- than go down and select the pmdg 800 ngx- select the panel than the read me file is in here

Ok thanks for that help. I found it and changes wideaspectview to true and now I am good again.Thanks again for the simple answer that almost caused me a heart attack.

Though this solution works, there is some distortion when choosing wideviewaspect=true. It corrects the downward position on the 737, but things seem too far away now. The runway is smaller and approaches too fast (like VC set at 40% zoom).Someone had a better solution to monkey with the view angle. This seemed to fix the 2D view without distorting the scenery. My monitor is 20" wide x 13" high. It that wide?

i agree. although there is a widescreen setting in fsx.cfg FSX does not do a great job with the forward view. what i find works for me much better is to set the forward view to 13 and zoom to 1.0 in the panel.cfg. then it is important to enlarge the view window to full screen size after the airplane is loaded.

OK I found the solution that works. I don't mess with the fsx.cfg file as this messes up my LD767.So I keepWideviewaspect=falseTo solve the downward view in the 737NGX, I changed the views in the 737-800 panel.cfg filefrom View_forward_dir=10.000, 0.000, 0.000to View_forward_dir=0.3, 0.0, 0.0This eliminates the distortion problem, and fixes the downward view in the 737NGX
