It appears, no pun intended, than FSX handles cockpits differently that FS9.I solved this problem, usually but not always, by making the following change to the 'panel.cfg' file. Back it up first!See below. [Default View]X=0Y=0SIZE_X=8191SIZE_Y=3375I made the SIZE_Y the same value as the SIZE_X.Post your aircraft 'panel.cfg' file. I would like to see what is in it.

Thanks McCrash.I tried keeping them the same...but it had a strange effect..and it was also scewed the other way.. so I just randomly reduced it (SIZE_Y) to 6191 instead of 8191 ant it looks reasonable.[Default View]X=0Y=0SIZE_X=8191//SIZE_Y=4267SIZE_Y=6191Manny

I brought over the Guages too. I thought the guages in 727 wouldn't work (The last time I tried).Almost everything seems to work great in FSX. I have not tested everything ...but This is good enough for me.Let me go try their 707 and their C130:(MAnnyEdited to add:I can't even select the 707 in FSX. Its throwing memory CTD.I brought over the CS c130 to FSX.. Everything looks good..except the guages are not working. They are visible in 2D and in the VC. IT even asked me to register the Gau files when I selected the C130. But for some reason its not moving..They are static..just siting there. But the gear animation and flight model and sound and everything is there. Oh wel..atleast I'll have the eye candy version of the C130 for now.

Hey Manny,Try this, open the panel.cfg, for that aircraft. Look for this line (render_3d_window=0), change it to (render_3d_window=1).Hope this helps,Jim
