    Hi Ricardo,

    Thanks for the hint

    Can you please explain what are those three values in the VIEW paragraph ?

    I assume that the center value is the eyepoint left/right because it is the only one that is changed.

    Just gave it a try, and will revert

    Re: Crabbing effect on views

    Hi Ricardo,

    I think you will find that the alterations to the POV only has an effect to the position within the VC and does not change the Scenery (Runway) position. Wideview allows you to assign a joystick button to move this position on the fly and it does not change the view of the runway but certainly changes the position within the VC. What I am able to do instantly, is change the positon to FO and back to Captain when ever I hand over the Aircraft. I use anaglyph 3D and this problem is exaggerated, so moving this position is needed. What it does in my case, is it gives the Captain and FO the same view. This effect occurs using the 3D.

    Kind Regards

    Bernie.

    Those images are captured in 2d cockpit, not virtual cockpit.

    If you change the file with the airplane selected you must restart the flight for the changes to take effect.

    Have you tried flying from the F/O side with those values in the cgf file ?
