Re: Prepar3d v4.5 and 3 monitors

If you take pictures from back of cockpit with side screens they don’t look as good as when you are sitting in; this is because you are looking along the side screens rather than direct on as when your head is in the right place.The best picture I notice on my website is under Display, phase 6. Coup...

Re: Prepar3d v4.5 and 3 monitors

I don’t really notice building stretching, it must exist because you are looking along a building rather than straight at it. May be more noticeable the further away to right or left you look. I find the side views contribute to the immersion feeling, the sides are peripheral vision mainly except ta...

Re: Prepar3d v4.5 and 3 monitors

Select new view, click on it and select undock. Then drag it to the side screen, stretch or full screen it on your side monitor. You then have to pan and zoom to line up with centre view. When you have got the screens set up be sure to save the flight, they will then be there when you start up again...

Re: Prepar3d v4.5 and 3 monitors

I drive four screens, two 47” and two 40” but the centre two are through a Matrox card so effectively three screens. I have always had success with dragging undocked windows onto the side screens and zooming and moving to line up. Result can be seen on my web link below. My only ambition is to be ab...

Re: After updating, Orbx scenery not available

Go into FTX central and select validate files. I have found that sometimes it looks as though Orbx is there but it doesn’t work after playing with sceneries. Downside of this it will probably mess up the order of your scenery levels and you will have to move them about. Add on scenery manager helps ...

Re: dxgi error device removed...

I have been getting this problem for a few weeks, my system has been running without fault for five years with no hardware changes. I have tried all of the fixes in this and other forums. I note that many other games forums are having the same difficulties so it is not a uniquely P3D issue. Rolling ...

Re: GPU GTX750Ti crash

I have the same problem developed recently after years of use. I have two GTX970 cards and I get two error windows up so both cards are affected which to me means not a faulty card. Notice the same issue is reported on other gaming sites ( e.g. Crysis) so not likely to be confined to P3D. I have tri...

Sim object folder disappeared

My sim objects folder (including aircraft) has just disappeared. I only notice because I cannot use model matching in vpilot. My sim operates because my stock aircraft is in a different folder. I have list all my AI aircraft. I cannot recall having done anything to cause this, the last changes were ...

Re: Fine zoom control

Have you used shift and + ?
I have found this fine enough to line up multiple screens.
