Re-sizing for smaller monitor


Recommended Posts

Help, please.

I've downloaded and installed a superb Boeing777 panel for FSX designed mainly for a monitor size 1920x1024.

My monitor recommends a maximum of 1280x1024. The panel is somewhat squeezed!!!

What do I have to do to configure the size to more suit my panel and where to do so? Can anyone take me through the steps?

Please be very succinct.

You are trying to use a panel designed for a widescreen monitor on a 4:3 monitor.


If you can get your monitor to display a widescreen resolution (which I highly doubt) you will end up with black bars on the top and bottom of your screen.


The easiest fix is to find another panel that was designed for a 4:3 monitor.


To fix the panel you have you would have to edit the panel bitmap, losing about a 1/3 of it, and some of the gauges that would go with that real estate.


So your best options are to either find another panel or live with what you have.
