How To Adjust Minipanel View Perspective

Recommended Posts

This one is for Bill AVSIM Ombudsman. Can you please tell me how to adjust the "Minipanel's Default View Perspective"? I have replaced the minipanel with my VFR panel but the "Height" is to high. I can change this by "shift+backspace and shift+enter" to where I need it but can I change the "Default Panel cfg" to keep this certain down view and a zoom factor other than the 1.0 ? Best Wishes, Randy Smith

Randy, all the parameters for the mini-panel are found in the panel.cfg file in the Aircraftdefault folder:[MiniPanel00]position=7size_mm=700,110window_size=0.96,0.19The above defines the mini-panel for all 'modern' prop a/c. The absolute physical size of the mini-panel is set in the size_mm= section, where mm=pixels (more or less). Where there isn't a 1:1 correspondence, the window_size= defines it as a percentage of the screen. The position= parameter says to "put this panel in 'middle' of the lower part of the screen."That's about the sum of my knowledge on the subject! :) I hope this will help.

Minipanel View Perspective [/p] [/p]In addition to what Bill said above.. there is a VIEWS section in the panel CFG that defines the view angle and zoom. See Microsoft Panel SDK document in the `Views' section for all the parameters. It's not clear if you are talking about `seat height', `view angle' up-down, or perhaps backplane proportion. The line below will cause the `forward view to look straight ahead (0-deg in elevation, pitch and roll). Also see `View Forward Zoom' setting.[VIEWS]VIEW_FORWARD_WINDOWS=MAIN_PANEL,GPS_PANELVIEW_FORWARD_DIR = 0.0, 0.0, 0.0VIEW_FORWARD_ZOOM = [/p] [/p]Note: good idea to download SDK, save as HTML, then make desktop icon for easy browser access/reference..Gregory Abbey - Edwinnengineering

Yes those view entries only effect the forward panel views but have NILL effect on the minipanel view which is really the "wideview" for any aircraft and I think is default at zoom 1.0 @ 0 degrees forward in all fields. So, just where does one CHANGE the outside default view that has nothing to do with an aircrafts panel view is really what I need to answer. The minipanel's cfg does not have view entries I suppose because it uses the DEFAULT outside view. Ok I am going to pull my hair out now,.............Thanks.Randy Smith

Could you not enter a line or two defining the Forward View? [/p] [/p]Gregory Abbey - Edwinnengineering

Well you would think you can, but just what type of entry would you put? I'll try some forward view entries and see if it works, I very much doubt it though! Thanks again
