    Pan view locked up

    Hmmm... Actually, it seems like reenabling controllers does the trick. I don't understand why/how that would help, but I won't question it. Problem solved...

    Pan view locked up

    I've been using FSX with PMDG and FSUIPC for a couple years, and suddenly, for no apparent reason, I lost the ability to pan the view around. It just locked up inexplicably. I have completely reinstalled PMDG, and have deleted FSUIPC from FSX, but the problem persists. The problem happens in all aircraft, default and add-ons. My computer is a very high end gaming system, so it certainly cannot be a hardware related problem. What could possibly be happening?

    FSX view projection

    These two 737s are the same. Notice how in the picture on the right, the rear of the plane looks equal in size to the front, even though it is actually further away. This is how aircraft and other objects are shown in FSX. The picture on the left is how things look to the human eye - when things are further away, they appear smaller. Is there a way that I can change the view in FSX to be like the left? Thanks, Leif
  4. I'm tired of flying the PMDG 737 with only a joystick, so I've decided to splurge and build a whole cockpit. My budget isn't bad, but it isn't great either (let's say maybe... a few thousand dollars over the course of one year). Anyways, I want to begin my project by making the throttle quadrant first. There are two ways I can go about this (that I know of): Buy two saitek throttle quadrants and merge them together, which would give me six slots - 2 Throttle, 2 Reversers, 1 Spoiler and 1 Flap, plus six switches that I have yet to decide a purpose for < OR > Buy an Arduino chipset and Make my own throttle box, which might give me more room to customize, but I need to know: can Arduino chipsets support incremental controls like throttles, or do they only support simple on/off states?Do fellow simmers here have a preference over these two options for custom cockpits? Are there any other recommendations? Thanks, Leif
  5. I forgot to check the packs and bleeds, and I now have a pressurization failure in the middle of my flight. I looked at the Failures menu in the FMC and tried everything I could with the Pressurization submenu. I doesn't appear to do anything. Is there a way to 'reset' the failure without exiting the flight? Thanks, Leif
