    Z key display parameters

    Can someone tell me how to change the font, color and location of this text display?

    Thanks,

    EDIT: Just realized you are talking about CFS, not FSX. There may be an equivalent.

    I don't know about location, I think that is hard coded. As for color though, try this:

    In the fsx.cfg file.


    [TextInfo.1]
    Latitude=1,1
    Longitude=1,2
    Altitude=1,3
    Heading=1,4
    AirSpeed=1,5
    WindDirectionAndSpeed=1,6

    add the next 2 line if they are not there.


    TextColor.1=255,255,255
    BackGroundColor.1=0,0,0,128




    Where each number in "TextColor" is and RGB value.


    You can use this tool to get the proper RGB for the color you wish.

    You'll have to experiment with the BackGroundColor, I haven't messed with that part at all.


    Cheers,

    Yes, just learned about how to make a change in fsx while searching for cfs3. Did a lot of searching too, no joy. Guess you're right, it's hard coded. Red is hard to focus on, and old eyes don't help.

    Thanks.

    Text colour - Z key

    I Haven't come across a way to change Z key text colour. HUD text colour can be changed in the ViewUI.xml.

    You're probably right about it being hard-coded. There is a possibility that there is info tucked away in the xml files in the Dialogues folder?

    Didn't see anything in the dialogs. Not exhaustively searched, but opened every xml, if there's something there and it was a snake it would have bit me. Don't think it's there.

    Thanks all the same for the suggestion.
