    VC panning

    I am trying to find out how to get the VC to line up across three monitors. I was able to modify the panel.cfg to line up the horizons in 2D. I just bought a Trackir 5 and saw on Youtube several setups were the VC and horizon lined up perfectly. I am able to pan all three monitors together but the view isn't continuous. This is what I'm trying to achieve. www.youtube.com/watch?v=_e5KpKyAweE

    If it helps I have 2 Nvidia Geforce 800GT's

    THANKS.

    Don't know if it helps, but have you had a look at the software based Triplehead2go at http://www.kegetys.net/SoftTH/
    Maybe that will help get the screens aligned.

    Hi

    I have two TH2GO and I do not have any issues lined up. Can you post a pic so we can understand your problem ?

    Thanks

    Sorry, I remember looking at it over a year ago and it didn't work with FSX then I just thought that by now it would have.

    NicK. I dont have a TH2GO. I cant get the same resolution as you (5040x1050) so i was hoping that i could modify a CGF file or change the camera position to get a smooth transition between monitors. So far no luck.


    Thanks

    Re: VC panning

    Doesn't need any software or utilities - it is built in but poorly documented.

    Go to keyassignments - assign a spare key to VIEW LINK ALL (toggle)

    Open the three VC view windows.
    Drag one to left screen, one to right and leave one center.
    Now it all depends on the FOCUS - ie - which screen you are clicked into.

    FOCUS - central screen - set up the view to your liking with your tophat. Or hold down spacebar and move mouse around.
    FOCUS - left screen. - Hold down SPACEBAR and then mouse in the area of the center screen. Mouse till left screen comes into the alignment you want on the center screen. Let go Spacebar.
    FOCUS - right screen - Hold down SPACEBAR and then mouse in the area of the center screen. Mouse till right screen comes into the alignment you want on the center screen. Let go Spacebar.

    Use your key assignment to lock the three screens together (It is a toggle - click to lock, click to unlock.)

    If using TrackIR - make sure you stay clicked into central screen.

    Good information Graeme, thanks.

    Has anyone else used this method?

    Re: VC panning

    Sorry that assignment is - VIEW LINK ALL (toggle)

    I was working from faulty memory - today I looked.

    The beauty of this compared to a software utility program is that there is no additional software overhead.

    That is what I have been doing. The problem is that if you look up or down the cockpit is not continuous. If I look up the horizon seems to bend like a smile. If I look down the horizon frowns. The horizon and continuity of the cockpit gets worse the farther I get from my beginning point. Any suggestions? Thanks.
