FSX Viewpoint in 2-D Cockpit

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,Okay so I have been having problems with my FSX recently, but this one is the most annoying whenever I switch to the my the 2-D FSX Cockpit the viewpoint or the view is set at a high level, and whenever I look towards the side's while taxing and move back to 2-D view , it points towards the sky again, given that I have corrected the setting using CTRL+Q and CTRL+SHIFT+QIs there anyway to make it as the default settings, I am not quite sure how this happened, I have already tried setting the proper view point and saving a flight, it works for that aircraft but not all other aircrafts. I am running Windows 7 x64 , SP1MS FSX with a lot of addons , FSPAX,PMDG,WILCO,CLSMSFSX with SP2Thanks :)

Hi Bert,Thanks for your reply, yes that did work, but what's puzzling me is how those values got messed up, every plane has different values .Anyway now I have to do it all manually, and it sucks!But can you please go to your default FSX folder and check the values of the VIEW_FORWARD_DIR for the A321 and the 737 as well and tell me.Thanks!Rahul
