PFD trouble....

Recommended Posts

Hi,

For use on a separate screen i open a PFD window from the views/instruments menu. Once undocked i can drag it onto my smaller screen.

The problem is that when i drag the sides if the window out to fit my screen (1024x 768) the background blue/brown colours go haywire. (I actually need it wider than that because i dont want to see the knobs at the side)

I can expand it to a certain point, which is almost big enough for what i need but beyond that the problem arises.

Is there any way around this? I assume it is to do with texture resolution limits of the gauge.

You can see what i mean by expanding the pfd window on the main screen too, so its not a problem with my second screen. 

Cheers

Stinger

Using a gauge on another screen has always been bad for me and mostly resulted in a freeze then crash.  It will be interesting to see if it works.

HI Jim,

i now have it working fine , it just needed the resolution on my intstrument screen reducing. I now have the following working fine on one PC ...

2 x 24inch monitors for forward view using 2d panel view but setup so that i can pan the view.

2 x 10 inch touchscreen monitors displaying and operating the PFD and MFD

My pc specs are i5 cpu @3.8ghz , gtx1070 6gb graphics, 8gb ram, 250gb ssd.

My settings in FSX are reasonably high with frames set at 20.

cheers
