Front Panel too large 2D cockpit.

Recommended Posts

Just reloaded 737NGX on my machine with a 4:3 Ratio CRT Monitor and have an old problem with the Front Panel too large for the scenery behind. Can not see runway on approach. FSX + FSX Acceleration.

Have loaded latest patch 1.C.

Have 'WideViewAspect=False in fsx.CFG. '

Have

[VIEWS]

VIEW_FORWARD_WINDOWS=MAIN_PANEL,MINIPANEL

VIEW_FORWARD_DIR=5.5, 0.0, 0.0

VIEW_FORWARD_ZOOM=0.8

in panel.cfg file

Can temporarily change view to correct position with Ctrl + Q.

 

Would appreciate any suggetions.

cheers

Thanks all for your input.

My screen resolution is 1600x1200 which is native to the 4:3 Aspect Ratio screen.

Raising and lowering seat is not the affect I am after with shift+enter/shift+backspace. The changing of pilot perspective with Ctrl+Q and Ctrl+Shift+Q is the affect I wish to alter. I can get the view I want by selecting Ctrl+Q but if I select a side view left or right then return to the forward view it is too high once again.

Thanks Pete,

Changed 'WideViewAspect=True' from 'WideViewAspect=False' in fsx.CFG with no affect.

Thanks Jay,

The post you pointed to delt with changing 'WideView Aspect' in the FSX.cfg file to True or False depending on monitor type.

It also deals with changing the values of the 'Views. View

Post #8 in that thread tells you how to reset the forward view permanently which is what I thought you were looking for

There is a panel.cfg for 4:3 users located in the 737-800 (non winglet) panel folder - rename that to panel.cfg to make it active, then set WideViewAspect=False.

Thanks for the interest Jay ,

Post #8 discusses settings in the FSX.cfg and Panel.cfg files. Both these have been checked and are as they should be.

What I have noticed though is that any change I make to the Panel.cfg file in Views.

View_Forward_Dir =. Has no affect on the cockpit perspective.

ie: whether I have 'View_Forward_Dir=1.0, 0.0, 0.0 or View_Forward_Dir=5.5, 0.0, 0.0'. the cockpit perspective does not change. What would cause the Panel.cfg instructions to be ignored?

Thanks Ryan,

Changed panel.cfg to panel.cfg.old and panel_4_3.cfg to panel.cfg then reloaded. The undercarriage selector was pushed off the side of my screen but the forward view did not change.

Can you post a screen shot of your issue? Maybe we are talking about 2 different things.
