View Full Version : Forward view

Gentlemen ,

How I can settle the forward view to cover from 270 thru 90 ?

Have I do anything in FS9.cfg ? or in another place ? or that is impossible ?

I do not want to use three (3) views , forward , forward left and forward right . I want to use just one view.

Thanks and regards

That might be possible, but its going to look REALLY strange during flight. More than 1 display is the way to go. 3 is your best bet. And you can usually get them for free these days. Old monitors are always being thrown out. They may be old, but they are free.

Hi Andy ,

My idea is as I use a projector I would have a forward view , from 270 thru 90 , 0 would be the center line of the plane , and would use a curved screen in order to have side view with this arrangement .

How I can have that forward view with that angle ( 270 - 90 )

Thanks and regards

Do you have any idea what a fish eye lens looks like?

Put a pair of them on and walk around the room. You would never be able to even fly the aircraft with a setup like that.

If you want to test this theory,

Load flight sim, and when sitting in the cockpit press the [-] Key as much as you can. this will only give you from about 320 - 45 degrees, and see if you can fly it like that.

Let us know how you make out.

Huh, I wondered why John Cryer wasn't a good pilot in Hot Shots.

I thought the Walleye Vision TM would be helpful. :-)

Sorry for the 7500 ...back to the topic...
