Hi Luigi,I agree with what Steve said; I've never seen a panel with the fixed windows numbered any way except 30 - 37. It should only take a few minutes to try it.One other thing that I noticed is that there is no title line for each fixed window definition. Try adding these lines {Fixed WindowXX} to your definitions. Of course change the XX to 30 - 36 if you have implemented Steve's suggestion and use square brackets instead of {} brackets (the message board won't allow me to use square brakets). I hope this is helpful.

LuigiAlso you have to add the views lines{VIEWS}view_forward_WINDOWS=Captains_PanelVIEW_FORWARD_DIR=2.5, 0.0, 0.0VIEW_FORWARD_RIGHT_WINDOWS=33VIEW_FORWARD_RIGHT_DIR=4.0, 0.0, 45.0VIEW_RIGHT_WINDOWS=30VIEW_RIGHT_DIR=4.0, 0.0, 90.0VIEW_REAR_RIGHT_WINDOWS=35VIEW_REAR_RIGHT_DIR=4.0, 0.0, 135.0VIEW_REAR_WINDOWS=34VIEW_REAR_DIR=4.0, 0.0, 180.0VIEW_REAR_LEFT_WINDOWS=36VIEW_REAR_LEFT_DIR=4.0, 0.0, 270.0VIEW_LEFT_WINDOWS=31VIEW_LEFT_DIR=4.0, 0.0, 270.0VIEW_FORWARD_LEFT_WINDOWS=32VIEW_FORWARD_LEFT_DIR=4.0, 0.0, 315.0By the way, the VIEW_..._..._DIR=..... line can be changed if the view's not right, or left out if you're satisfied Also I used a different order in the fixed window section{Fixed Window31}file=DC2_L.bmp position=7visible=0ident=31render_3d_window=1nomenu=1window_size= 1.000, 1.000window_pos= 0.000, 0.000And so forth.........why not try cfgedit, you can load the panel.cfg into that programm, and add your fixed windows. http://www.avsim.com/hangar/flight/dc2uiver/bear/dc2_02.jpgNo DC3 without a DC2;-)Cheers, RobVisit http://www.avsim.com/hangar/flight/dc2uiver/index.htm
