New View Unclickable Switches

Recommended Posts

Came across a confusing issue and thought I might ask you guys:

 

I did something different than my previous flights; instead having 1 virtual cockpit across 2 monitors, I decided to put the Captain's side on the left monitor, and the First Officer's side on the right using "New View" from the Options bar.

 

The reason I have it setup like this is because I plan to have a colleague over for a 2 crew flight and I want my side different from his so if I pan around, his side is unaffected and he can still look out the windshield, or feed data into the CDU.

 

However, I noticed I can only click switches / turn knobs on the Captain's side. When I try to do anything on the FO's side (which is a "New View"), nothing happens. The only thing I can do is pan the view.

 

Is there another approach to setting up 2 seperate views in FSX on 2 monitors? Or is there a tool that can fix this issue?

 

Thanks,

Hank

Are we talking 2D panels here or the VC?

 

Or does the "new view" option open a new window in which any view can be selected?

 

If so, I doubt that you can click anything in it by principle.

Captain's side of the VC for monitor 1, and a "new view" with the First Officer's side of the VC on monitor 2. However, only the original FSX window (Captain's VC on monitor 1) can be interacted with.

 

What I'm looking for is a fully interactive FO side so if the pilot not flying (or pilot monitoring) is panning the view, my side doesn't get affected so I can still look straight ahead.
