The ATC and Kneeboard windows in P3D

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere or repeatedly, and I appreciate your patience if that's the case;   but can the ATC and Kneeboard pop up windows in P3D2, be made transparent?

 

I really dislike the solidity of these windows in P3D, and cannot see any advantage to not having partially transparent pop up dialogue boxes, as per FSX.

 

Any pointers?

 

Thanks in advance.

I've complained about this since v1.4 - and it hasn't changed.

I've not seen anything discussing this in quite a while, so it's like it's here to stay.

 

I searched and searched for a way to make it transparent to no avail.

 

I am sure the lack of transparency aggravates a lot of the simmers of P3D.

Yeah, it is kind of clunky.  I guess it's the "new and improved" version.

Agreed. It is highly annoying, especially at night. This has been requested for years now. Aside from not being implemented it is not even acknowledged by the devs. It remains a mystery as to why.

Yes bl**dy irritating. I have programmed buttons now on my joystick and yoke for ATC window toggle and "answer 1" so I can remove it asap.

 

Very distracting especially in a training environment. Hear that Lockheed Martin? VERY DISTRACTING IN A TRAINING ENVIRONMENT.

 

Or I just fly without ATC..

Did Microsoft not permit them to use that technique? Is it a Windows only thing?

Mmm, thanks for the clarification folks.  That is odd.

 

It 100% looks, feels, and works like a downgrade / backward step, from the FSX functionality.   Odd that they're not acknowledging it.   I wonder if Rob A can have a word in their ear?   :smile:
