    At least the 2D is good then...;) I would have thought the VC would handle itself...as the textures it maps to are the originals and the originals are/were supposedly fine in whatever res people choose to use....it's the reality of the VC option. I'll have to check what it's doing in different machines...;)

    Another thought....that's the modded VC. Does the 2D look vaguely OK at least? The VC alterations maybe are affected by the aircraft.cfg 'view' settings ... Mine in the aircraft.cfg are... eyepoint=22.489, 0.0, 2.401 which looking at the numbers are most likely original...as when I move one it's never to a third decimal...;)

    Getting there, then.... My panels tend to get a wee bit complicated and are ideally suited to 1680x1050 res. Thinking back to last year I did wrestle with making them more tolerant of screen proportion changes...not sure if that included this one...but from memory had to do with the sizeable= and/or movable= lines in the cfg.... and that applies to all the windows that say 'size_mm=1680,1050'...as all of those locate various layers as an absolute. It won't be an issue with choice of paint...as long as the panel is in the correct AS model ...;) Any gauges in the default folder won't be an issue ...so stuff like the gps doesn't need commenting out. Fuzzies come from non-native resolutions in LCD monitors....always use the native...no matter what program you are using .

    Had to refresh my memory re that one....was a while ago... There's one cab...it must be put in the panel.f8 folder where the panel.cfg file is. Only thing I can think of is the sonic boom effects in the panel.cfg.... if you don't have them it might cause a hang ...so comment them out and it may help. Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=256,256 visible=0

    dl....check all the gauges are where they are supposed to be...namely in the panel folder. If it hangs it's likely due to wanting to find something that's not in the correct place. The panels run painlessly in FSX Accel...with no issues ..;)

    "Clients"? If it's anything like Architecture it is they that ruin a perfectly good career...;) Meanwhile....hunting for pics led me to an existing Lotus sim paint of this one...but in 1024 res ...so not as 'sharp' as what I'll end up with.... Haven't touched the tail yet...that's still the photo 'skin'....or the wings...

    Thanks, Dave. It all depends on how many photos you find so you get clear indication of details. When it's a HD skin you have the opportunity to get stuff detailed and clean so Larry Lee's N8124N wasn't too difficult....though I still need to enlarge the 'International Jets' logo on the tip tanks.....

    Images such as those can go as 'extensive' as you like. You can put them only in one paint of one aircraft....or in the 'shared' folder of one aircraft....or in several shared folders...or in the 'global' so all aircraft will use it/them See the logic within a paint's 'texture.cfg'. FSX follows that hierarchy...;)
