2D Panel View - Screenshot

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

 

after the amaizing job made my PMDG 747 i decided to buy the PMDG 737. One question when starting a flight and having the 2D panel view the cockpit view starts with a zoom that appear to look at its own front wheels. Is there a trick to have the view look straight?

I have been trying to minimize the windows and nothing seems to work, except if I retract the zoom to 0.30. But it does not look real (as by pressing the standard zomm- backspace)

you need to change something in the panel.cfg by memory maybe someone can point you towards that.

Hi,

 

CTRL+SPACEBAR only temporarily sets the view, as you change views, the forward view goes back to "normal."  Does anyone know how to change the FSX cfg settings to set the view to the realistic view from the cockpit?  I have been using 0.30 whicxh is not the actual view one would see from a real cockpit, but it's better than looking at the ground.

 

Thanks

Felipe,

 

Try editing the panel.cfg which can be found under simobjects. In the View subsection add this

 

 

[VIEWS]
VIEW_FORWARD_WINDOWS=MAIN_PANEL,MINIPANEL
VIEW_FORWARD_DIR=5.5, 0.0, 0.0
VIEW_FORWARD_ZOOM=0.8

 

Gerry

or where it it says 5.5 try 3.3

Hi, try to change this line in your FSX.CFG

 

WideViewAspect=True

 

That should fix it.

Hi,

 

Don't have a VIEW heading in FSX so put the 3 lines under the end of the PANEL entries and Added in the Header [VIEWS].  However it has not made any difference to the view forward, it still goes to the default view and I have to adjust it with the - key and end up with 0.30

Felipe,

 

Check that you are using this path to find the panel.cfg file.

 

C:\FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes\PMDG 737-800NGX

 

subsitute FSX in that line if you have installed FSX elsewhere or under another name.

Hi,

 

In the 737-800 Aircraft Cfg file I have the following:

 

[Views]

eyepoint=46.462, -1.64, 4.75

 

In the panel cfg file I have the following:

 

[fltsim]

alias=PMDG 737-800NGX\panel

 

That's all I have under those two headings.  Where should I enter the three lines you suiggested?

 

Rob



OK, found the right file and put in changes.  However, the view out of the cockpit is still the same.

All I can suggest is that you use Ctrl-Q and Ctrl-Shift-Q to move the view outside up and down.

Gerry is correct. I believe all the NGX panels alias back to this file. I use 3.000, tastes great and less filling too.

 

\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\PMDG 737-800NGX\panel\panel.cfg

 

[VIEWS]

VIEW_FORWARD_WINDOWS=MAIN_PANEL,MINIPANEL

VIEW_FORWARD_DIR=3.000, 0.000, 0.000

VIEW_FORWARD_ZOOM=0.8

Anyone know how to set the zoom.  Mine goes to 0.30 automatically and 0.80 is more realistic.  I can adjust it manually but I'd like to set it in a cfg file so it automatically goes to 0.80.

 

Thanks

Jay,

 

Thank you - your message puts it so much more clearly. That should help him.

 

Many thanks,

Hi Gerry, I tried this, it seemed to work, however as soon as I change the vewi (e.g. side view) it resets the view again...

 

one question: I installed FSX as an administrator, however when trying to open the \Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\PMDG 737-800NGX\panel\panel.cfg I dont see any text document, is there a way to see this file and write on it?

Felipe.

 

Right click on the panel.cfg file. Select "open with" from the drop down list and select "notepad". Make the changes and then dont' forget to save the file once you have added the changes.

It worked!!! ufff I never expected to have so much file-manipulation in order to have a add-on run normal!
