3+1 Monitor Setup in P3D 2.2

Recommended Posts

What I do is, in windowed mode, click on the Views menu, select Instruments and then the instrument that I want to display. Right click on the instrument window, select undock. Repeat for all the instruments I want on my instruments monitor. Once done, press Alt+Enter for windowless mode and surround kicks in. Now drag the undocked panels to the instruments monitor.

 

In FSX the surround mode causes instruments to be stretched to 3x their defined width, so the solution is to edit the panel.cfg file for the aircraft and divide the width value specified in the window size by 3. For example, if the entry for the instrument window that you want to resize is like so:

 

window_size = 1.00000, 0.46250

 

you would change this to:

 

window_size = 0.33333, 0.46250

 

I have not tried the panel.cfg edit in P3D, only in FSX.

Denali, have you solved the issue that prevented using the full width? I would be interested also to reduce the distorsion...

 

Yes, I have.  I'll try to get something about it up here this weekend.  I just wish I had time to wrap my head around the acual math involved in these perspectives, because there is a little distortion that isn't easy to fix without the right function/equation.

Great, this could be revolutionary.

A lot of planes use this format instead:

 

[Window01]

size_mm=456,378

window_size=0.5

 

What do you do in this case?

my assumption would be that window_size=0.5 is equivalent to window_size=0.5,0.5 therefore in this instance you would amend this to window_size=0.16667,0.5

Just a quick update.  I have the math figured out, for the x-axis anyways.  An object seen in the center of the view is exactly the same width when seen in any other position. ... !  The y-axis is dependent on the x-axis, and I have just a little more thinking through for this.  Processing ... processing ... processing ..

So, I have the rest of the math figured out.  Hopefully today I'll get to porting the psuedocode/math into a shader.  Got lots of things going on, but this has become high priority for me.  If I have enough time I'd like to wrap it up in a little configuration/installer package.
