How to center GSX-menu in VR

Postby pd1aku » Sun Aug 18, 2019 9:00 pm

Does anybody know how to move or center the general GSX-menu box in P3D when using Virtual Reality glasses?
In the normal screen it is centered in the middle of the monitor screen, but when I enable Virtual Reality the menu is outside the aircraft.

I use the Oculus Rift S, P3Dv4.5, PMDG737NGX and GSX and GSX level 2 expansion.

Kind regards Edward.

PS: Because nobody could help me on the GSX-forum I resend my message on this forum.

Hello,

There are specific controls for positioning panel windows in VR, they're listed in the learning center here: https://prepar3d.com/SDKv4/prepar3d/vir ... ality.html

Hi Rob,

Thank you for the fast reply and solution (It works with LeftMouseDown + Shift).
I am very happy with that!!!

Do you know if it possible to save this movement? At this moment I have to make this action every time after a restart.

I remember that the GSX-panel was centered in the first weeks after installation but after that for some reason it was always on the left.

Regards Edward.

Here is Solution:
https://www.prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopi ... 0&start=15

edit Prepar3Dv4\gauges\missionpanels.cfg comment 3dp_worldspace_pos_offset and add 3DP lines

[Window12]
window_size = 0.25, 0.25
position = 4 ; Middle Of Screen
visible = 0
ident = SIMCONNECT_WINDOW
scaleform_file = MenuWindow ; Use the generic menu window scaleform content
scaleform_instance_name = SimConnectWindow ; Provide a unique instance name
//3dp_worldspace_pos_offset = -1.0200003385543823242, -0.85000008344650268555, 1

3DP_SIZE=0.3,0.25 ;YoYo added
3DP_WORLDSPACE_POS_OFFSET= -0.0,-0.05,0.45 ;YoYo added X,Y,Z offsets
3DP_PBH_OFFSET=-3,0,0 ;YoYo added
