2D view too low once panel dragged to 2nd monitor.

Recommended Posts

So I have undocked the 2D MIP panel to my 2nd monitor and then dragged the 2D cockpit 'outside view' down to the bottom of my monitor. The problem being is I am seeing much more of the ground to my front that I should. It's almost that I am standing in the cockpit. Now I use cntrl shift Q which allows the view to be centred properly which is fine, however, when I change the view to look left right etc, when I return the view has reset to looking down again.


Is there a permanent fix for this please if anyone knows of one.


Thanks in advance.

I could not find the FSX.CFG so I downloaded a little program and I found it and I added TRUE and it worked. Still little too low and when I bring it up with Control - Shift and Q it bring it up correctly but when I look side view and come back front view it goes back to where it was.


If anyone has an idea to fixe this permenantly I would appreciate it.


Thanks for all your response and Happy New Year all.




if you would have type 2d views in the search option box on top you would have found your answer by now instead of waiting, didnt take me long to find this for you see if it helps if it doesnt just change some of the numbers to suit you


can change panel.cfg:



VIEW_FORWARD_DIR=5.5, 0.0, 0.0




This has to be made in the panel cfg which can be found in fsx folder/simobjects/airplanes/pmdg800ngx/panel folder than its under the cfg icon where you add these numbers
