Missing Views

Recommended Posts

Evening All,

I've just completed a fresh re-install of P3D after re-installing my OS.

However, after loading into P3D I have discovered I cannot see the Virtual Cockpit option or any outside views such as Sport view.

I haven't changed any settings in the CFG yet. I've tried numerous aircraft with the same result.

I've also tried deleting the CFG, but to no avail.

Any ideas apart from re-installing again which I would like to avoid?

Also been posted on the P3D forum,

Are you sure that you got the right file?

The file to be deleted and rebuilt is this one

C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\cameras.cfg

Best regards

Do you use a scenario?  If so delete the 2 scenario files.

Check the file mentioned in Lorby's post for lines that say "cyclehidden" in the sections pertinent to the views you are missing. Delete, or comment out the lines to restore the view. ( obviously deleting the file as Lorby recommended and letting p3dv4 rebuild it is easier, but if you have saved any of your view settings they will be reset to default.)

See the table in the following link. Find cyclehidden in the left column and read the description of that setting in the second column. It matches your problem exactly.

And I think the camera.cfg file remains between installs unless you use the utility LM provides to delete the user-generated content after you uninstall.

Sorry for the late update.


Deleted the camera.cfg file, and all was fine!
