P3D Window Resizing Question

Recommended Posts

Dear P3D users,

 

I have a question about the P3D window resizing.

 

After I minimise my P3D window to look at another program like PFPX and then maximise P3D again, the window is a much smaller square.

 

A video (not mine) shows exactly what happens to me

 

 

Is there any fix or way to prevent this from happening?

 

 

Thanks in advance :)

Run P3d in LM's version of full screen mode. It's on the P3d menu. If one runs P3d in a normal window, but maximized to fit the entire screen (like in the video), this type of response occurs on some systems.

Thanks for your response! I did what you said and pressed full screen from the menu and it was instant to alt tab, smooth, seamless and overall a much much better full screen experience compared to what I experienced in FSX.

 

Definitely recommend everyone considering trying this view at least once, I really like it now.

 

Thanks for your help

P3d does not have a true full screen mode. This "virtual" full screen mode is actually a borderless window, maximized to the full size of your screen. The reason for this approach is that it allows one to ALT-TAB out of P3d without having screen corruption and crashes. For example, if I run FSX-SE on my Windows 8.1 system in its true full screen mode and try to ALT-TAB to the desktop, it works, but then FSX-SE locks up. This happens in a number of other PC video games also.
