    panel setup will not stay. Runway line not centered.

    Hi,

    I setup my 2nd and 3rd panel for the LVLD767, but if I click on other panels, the original panels 2 and 3 changes and becomes smaller.

    All my screen resolutions are set at 1280 x 960, including FSX.
    I haven't made the overhead and FMC yet in my pit, therefore do need to call the panels (not made) up on the screen.

    Anyway, to set them up and keep them in place?

    My 2nd issue

    I am using 1 projector for the front view. It seems tha runway line does not center properly. Anything that can be done to center it, or do I have to live with it?

    Thanks,

    Taufeeq

    If i understand right, you may have the same problem i also have. Let's explain a little better, just in case that someone can help

    When having dual seat cockpit, the projector is placed in the middle of the cockpit, over the throttle, or pedestal and the screen is justified, but the captain or the first officer they have both a wrong point of view when trying to be over the centeline. The pilot flying has always the centerline in angle and not straight ahead, even trying to have the centerline in front of him, like we can do in front of a single monitor or like in real aviation. The reason that the projector is not over his point of view, but 20-30cm right for the captain, left for the F/O.

    Is there a solution whith the panel.cfg and view options to change/callibrate the point of view ?

    Thanks

    Yes there is small difference in the centerline view, like you wrote the crabbing effect.
    So this is the best view for Captain's point of view, right?

    And if we want to fly also the F/O we have to make another view for his right-seat point of view ?

    Thanks

    The configs are writen over the images, just enlarge them and test them on the aircraft.cfg file.

    This is the best i got for both sides, they look the same to me, but this will always be a try and try process.
