    Default Default View in 2-D panel FSX-SE too low

    Something happened about a month ago that changed the default view through the windscreen on ALL ac loaded. The view is tilted downward and I have to Shift-Ctrl Q a couple of times to raise it back up. Whenever I change views from inside to outside, I have to reset the view with the S-C-Q routine again. I've been experimenting with different monitor resolutions and am settled on 1920 X 1080 in both the program and the monitor. I wouldn't think resolution would have anything to do with that. Anyone have any ideas what might cause this??

    Thank you all for any and all ideas... Terry

    Interesting that you have only just experienced this as I thought this issue had existed since FSX was invented!

    Go to the panel.cfg file in a text editor for any aircraft affected, and amongst the entries in the section headed [VIEWS] there will be an entry that reads something like:
    VIEW_FORWARD_DIR=0.000, 0.000, 0.000

    Change the first number to read something like:
    VIEW_FORWARD_DIR=5.000, 0.000, 0.000

    You will need to change the panel.cfg file for each aircraft affected, and tweak it to get the view exactly as you want it.

    Usual disclaimers regarding backing-up first apply . . .

    John, I knew these parameters were there in panel.cfg, but I have never changed them. The view used to be fine. BUT, not arguing with what is/might be, I tried your suggestion and it works beautifully. The number "5" is a great starting point as well. Thank you for this idea. I tried your suggestion on two ac and the view popped up like it should be.. Much obliged.. Thank you...Many blue skies to you and yours.. Terry
