GSX menu opens in full screen

Recommended Posts

Hello,

P3D V4.2 here. Purchased the Maddog earlier this afternoon. After installing I found that calling for the GSX on-screen menu (CTRL+F12) the menu opens in full screen and not in the the usual small pop-up form. Searching the Internet I found a similar report from 2016 when someone experienced the exact same issue after installing the TFDi 717.

I am wondering if anyone else had this issue and if there is a know solution to this please.

Cheers

For a permanent solution

The size of the GSX window is controlled by a "SIMCONNECT_WINDOW" entry in the missionpanels.cfg file located in the "\gauges" folder. 

 Open missionpanels.cfg with notepad and look for the following entry:
   
[Window12]
size_mm                           = 375,250
position                            = 4                     ; Middle Of Screen
visible                              = 0
ident                                = SIMCONNECT_WINDOW
scaleform_file                   = MenuWindow            ; Use the generic menu window scaleform content
scaleform_instance_name  = SimConnectWindow      ; Provide a unique instance name 

 after the size_mm line, add the following line where X.XX (horizontal) and Y.YY (vertical) are a percentage of the main P3D window from 0.00 (0%) to 0.99 (99%)
  
  window_size = X.XX, Y.YY   
  
  The "window_size = 0.50, 0.50" works for me.

 

Regards

Works perfect, mine looks like this now:

 

[Window12]
size_mm                 = 375,250
window_size             = 0.30, 0.25
position                = 4                     ; Middle Of Screen
visible                 = 0
ident                   = SIMCONNECT_WINDOW
scaleform_file          = MenuWindow            ; Use the generic menu window scaleform content
scaleform_instance_name = SimConnectWindow      ; Provide a unique instance name
