TRIPLE MONITOR PROBLEM

Recommended Posts

I have just set up 3x24" monitors using the graphics card GTX780. Surround installed correctly but I cannot zoom out far enough using "-" to get enough of the cockpit showing . The cockpit is spread over the three monitors and I cannot get it out far enough to mainly show in the centre monitor with scenery showing on the left and right monitors. How do the simmers get this right as is often seen on u tube videos?

Go into your fsx.cfg and change Widescreen=False to True. That should do it.

As Paul says above and also try moving your eye-point back as far as practical.

Thanks. I have only found widescreen aspect in the cfg. file. I have changed this from false to true. It hasn't made any difference and how do I move the eye point further back. Whilst here at Avsim how do I alter the viewpoint from a skew point to a centre point? I can't find the - on the altimeter button because it is hidden by the skewed view.

There are keys to move the viewpoint - try Ctrl-enter to move backwards

I had lost WideViewAspect=True from the Cfg file. I have put it back under GRAPHICS Display Nvidia GTX780. Is this o-kay? It still does not solve my problem of too much cockpit showing on the 3 screens.

As indicated in an above post it is supposed to go under [Display], not sure if it makes a difference.  Like you i run 3x displays (5760x1080), i have no problems other than the stretched image problem.

Can you confirm that WideViewAspect=True actually does something to your view.

You said above it doesn't.

Try alternating it from true to false and back.

There should be an obvious difference.

I've never heard of this cfg entry not working.

Hello gb

 

This morning I have alternated between WideAspectView=True/False and each time come out of the PC and in again, same with FSX but no change whatsoever. When FSX loads on a runway you see the runway and scenery either side. but no cockpit. I then zoom out and get the top of the glareshield stretched across the bottom of the 3 monitors. I use Ctrl and enter to get a little further zoom but nothing much at all. I have to pan to use the FMC etc. with the instruments too large and close. This appears to be a zoom problem in 3D. Any further ideas?

Best thing to do is delete the cfg file, start fsx and it will build a new cfg file for you.

Run fsx go to options,settings,display and set your screen resolution.

Exit fsx and go to your cfg file, now look for WideAspectView=False UNDER THE DISPLAY SECTION not the graphics card section, change it to false.

Run fsx and make any further adjustments you want.

 

Hope this helps.

My post above should read change it to true.

Don't know why but I cannot edit my post.

Be sure you're modifying your FSX.CFG file and not the text (txt) file with the same name.

 

Hope this helps.
