Any lines you can put in Prepar3D.cfg to keep 2D panels from stretching in 21:9 formatted displays?

Recommended Posts

Beyond resizing them and saving it as a default flight I'm wondering if there is a magic trick to employ here.


Thanks in advace

I looked and only found this statement:

True for 3D Virtual Cockpits, but there will be distortion if using 2D panels.


This is a different issue. Unfortunately an aircraft's panel.cfg file specifies the position and size of 2D panels as a fraction of the screen width and height. This means that for any given aircraft the sizes presume a particular screen aspect ratio and (of course) the panels will appear stretched or squashed on a different screen.


So you just resize the panel. Or change the entries in panel.cfg. The best practical way is to save a flight with the windows sized correctly and they will load correctly when you load the flight.
