@diddy64 I'd guess this is only the way XP11.1 is running with your video card. Our plugin does nothing fancy with the pop out windows: it 'just' conforms to what the XP SDK tells it to do: draw there, take this mouse click.

@Phbardyn Noyeux Joël! Your feedback in the context of a home cockpit will  certainly be interesting for many of us! The popout Windows feature is not extensively tested and relies on the new XP11.1 SDK. Especially what we lack  testing the most is the save/restore coordinates and window state in a multi monitor configuration.

Sorry David but I'm not noticing any ill effects are FPS discrepancies when using as a popout to a separate monitor.

Thanks guys. It was reshader that was causing the frame drop on second screen. All good now.

Hi there is a way to show up just a screen without a frame, in popout ?

Hi, popup and popout windows are both sides of the same 'WINDOW' frame type rendering target in the RealityXP.GTN.ini

Therefore, locate the device section, say [GTN_750_1], then the setting 'drawto' which tells which are the render targets, say typically = WINDOW, PANELS. 

Locate the first rendering target section, say [GTN_750_1.WINDOW] and validate its frame.type setting is set to 'WINDOW'. 

In this section, each setting apply to the popup/popout window (frame type window). There, just set the nobezel option accordingly.

Conversely, the [GTN_750_1.PANELS] section, with setting frame.type = PANELS applies to the GTN displayed on the 3D/2D panels instead.

Over the years, with FS, Ive just seen too many ill effects of using reshade and I seem recalling something with multi monitor useage.. I like what it does but the reliability has kept me from using it. Glad you have it fixed.

@dvlourie just to make sure, are you running an X-Plane release version like 11.05 or 11.1? Is this happening in every aircraft?

Jean-Luc,

Good morning. Yes, the latest version of XP11 and all aircraft. I will check later to confirm all aircraft, but, I know the Cessna C172, the vFlyteAir Arrow III and the Carenado TBM850. I will report back later.

Just to make sure, the latest X-Plane version is not 11.1, but 11.11r2 or 11.12rc (new release candidates, I'll have to confirm which one). So do you have the latest, or 11.1?

We might also have introduced a bug in our settings. Specifically, with support for popout windows we've also added support for right mouse button, new with the XP11.1 SDK. 

Therefore, the entire settings controlling mouse are:

; enable mouse clickspots if true, disable if false (use SHIFT to override)
usemouse  =
; left mouse button on the screen toggles popup window if true (requires SHIFT+left mouse button).
popleft =
; right mouse button on the screen toggles popup window if true (requires XP11.1).
popright =

 

Should there is a bug, it might be with the popleft setting? You might want to try depressing the SHIFT key while clicking on the screen to see if this works? Otherwise, the other possible cause could be the 'locked=' setting which disables window resize and mouse clicks, unless also depressing the SHIFT key.

Jean-Luc,

just to confirm, I am running XP11 Version 11.11   Just updated. So I discovered that the panels will not run in full windows just windowed setting of XP

Also tested multiple planes and all the same results. I just tried using the shift key and no luck. Panels will not work in full window mode. I wonder if anyone else is having issues?

Here my preliminary feedback ( with pictures )

My config is as follow : XP11.11 / Dual Screen ( One for the outside view, the other one for the gauges rendered by AirManager ) through a GTX750 / I have a third screen on my ipad using Duet .. That's on the ipad that I tested to undocking features

My simulator is running full screen mode ( not windowed ) ... It works very well : not to much lag ( totally usable despite a small small delay ) / Connected well with other simulator components like my radio panels.

I have only one small "bug" when I hold my finger too long on the ipad, the GTN dissapears and I have to activate it again ( like it's desactivate ..)

Will continue to search for this one but for the rest.... whaoooo Finaly a touch screen based GPS in my cessna cockpit

Thanks a lot JP

also, would anyone have a guide to directory listings for the GTN 750? I just want to make sure everything is in it's right place?

Hi, we cannot reproduce this mouse issue with the latest XP 11.11 (11.0.11.1) and if you have a 11.05 version or 11.1 version backup to compare, I'm wondering what this would give. Possibly another plugin not yet fully 11.1 or 11.11 compatible is interfering?

First, thank you for the pop-out windows!  It really was the finishing touch on my simulator.  The Reality-XP products are exceptionally well done.

Is there any way to suppress the Windows 10 menu bar at the top of the pop-out windows?  I'm using the 650/750 and the menu bar appears each time the particular gauge is touched.  It would be great if we could somehow stop that from happening.

Thank you.

I´m having the same problem that you cannot click the GTN 750 with the mouse if X-Plane is in fullscreen mode. When I use X-plane in windowed mode the GTN 750 works normally as a popout window. But if I switch to X-Plane "Full screen simulator" the GTN will not react to mouse input anymore. This happen consistently every time. It also happens when using the GTN 750 in non-popout mode.

I have X-plane version 11.11. Tried with Laminar Cessna 172 and Baron 58.

@Scotto123 The menu bar is out of our control, it is the way XP11.1 displays popout windows. Now while writing this, I don't remember this to appear. I'm currently out of reach of any test computer but I'll try to see that later. Do you mean a menu bar right below the title bar, displayed like a typical File | Edit | etc... menu in its own row?

@VirtualFlyingFinn This must only be a XP11.11 peculiarity, maybe dependant on the video card? We have consistent working mouse fullscreen/windowed in all our tests, but I'll try to check something else just in case. Nevertheless, can you disable all your plugins but RXP's to cross check any possible conflict? It is very easy to do: 1) create a plugin.disabled folder at the same level of your plugin folder 2) drag and drop the ones you'd disable into this new folder. 3) to restore the plugins, drag and drop them back into the plugin folder.
