!! Windows 7 no longer supported !!

As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

  1. Yes, that changed the location default to the proper one. P3D4 window appears properly after scenario launch now. Thanks so much, Peter. Great if you can set it to happen automatically in next release. Too bad the way FSX/P3D panels are designed, the popup window sizes are all set in the panel files for individual aircraft, so if you change the main window aspect ratio as I did, the popup aspect ratio comes out wrong. If this becomes a common problem now that more people are resizing, perhaps there is room for a payware utility that sweeps through and resets them all properly. (Just an idea!) Regards Chuck
  2. Tried, but don't know how to get [MAIN] Location=1296,23,3863,2127,\\.\DISPLAY1 to appear in Diff Manager. All I see is a line [MAIN] - Location=* . Changing [MAIN] Location apparently isn't an option in Sim Config Mgr Display or Tweaks. Is there a way I can get [MAIN] Location to appear in a way such that I can assign it to my profile ? BTW what does the * in [MAIN] - Location=* line indicate ? Chuck
  3. More: appears to me that when SIMstarter launches P3D, it is ignoring the [MAIN} Location=1282,5,3839,2115,\\.\DISPLAY1 entry. Those coordinates correctly define top left and lower right of resized window that appears if I launch P3D directly without using SIMstarter. How to enable use of this Location in SIMstarter ?
  4. Hi Peter - Have been happily using SIMstarter for several years with FSX and P3D3&4. Like many, I recently upgraded to much faster Win10 Pro system with 42" diagonal 4K monitor to run P3D4.4 in windowed mode. Nice to be able to see my instruments full size in terms of visual angle. But now I no longer want to run P3D with fully maximized 16:9 window - need to reserve some space outside main P3D window to display charts and other apps. So I usually resize the main window to nearly to 1:1, and place it full height on one side of my monitor, leaving the other side open. But having to adjust this after every P3D launch is irksome. Normally Win10 will remember a window sizes if you push ctrl key when closing. And there are 3rd party apps like Zmove that will reset Win10 windows also. If I launch P3D and other apps without using SIMstarter, they reposition properly. But I find if launch P3D via SIMstarter, neither the ctrl key method or apps like Zmove work. Suspect that now that large format monitors are becoming popular, others may encounter this problem. Would like to find a way to continue to launch via SIMstarter. Do you think SIMstarter is resetting the P3D main window to a default position, overriding setting from last use ? I've attached my .cfg file - I see [MAIN] variables for position, but not for size... You know more than anyone about these variables, including undocumented ones. Is there a way I can specify my main P3D window size and position using SIMstarter ? Is that a feature that could be added in the future to help those moving to 4K monitors ? Chuck O Prepar3D.cfg
  5. Gabe - Are you using P3Dv4.3 or have you updated to v4.4?
  6. Love this airplane. Both the exotic capabilities, and the unique semi-automated checklist. Agree update would be great, even if upcharge. Providing GTN750 compatibility similar to Bert Pieke's mod would be wonderful - only new tweak needed would be a switch to put the GTN nav output into the autopilot, rather than having it drive the HDG bug. To me, providing more options for addon nav is more important than lighting
