MCDU minor display issue

Recommended Posts

It appears the fonts are cutoff on the right side of the Navaid page in the DATA category.

I'm assuming that's a cutoff zero and not an epsilon character?

What version of the bus is that?

What is your screen resolution?

That one in particular is A320-CFM, 

Screen and sim resolution are both 1920x1080

Installed version is 1.2.3.1. 

 

Edit.... I also tried to alternate the 16x9 panel cfgs (fullscreen and windowed), and the same on the IAE variants. 

results were all the same. 

 

Thanks

 

Here are the airbus fonts installed just in case you can see if any are missing

And the OS?

 

if it is win7 it could be linked to the fact font scaling was rather messed up there.

Negative sir, I'm running Win10.

Do you see this only in this specific case or in other screens of the MCDU too?

I only noticed it on this page and even then, only where duplicate navaids with the same ID exist. See below

Okay I will ask the dev of that part to have a look. I am personally unable to recreate this.

Sure, no problem.

Thanks for having it looked into.

We are also unable to recreate this. But clearly it IS an issue for this user and we like to understand what causes it.

Maybe windows zoom factor has anything to do?

 

There is a zoom option %125, %150 etc in display properties. Is it %100 for you? @samwise7

Hi, thanks for the suggestion, as you can see, I don't scale any of my displays.

We have seen this a few times in the last 7 years, but looking back at each of them I do not see any reason why the sim should misinterpret the font size. For now this beats me.

Mr. Kok, I appreciate your attention to this  but its really a minor issue, just a little pesky anomaly.  The lat-lon data is there and I use those to identify the proper way-points so all is good.  I'm sure your guys have more pressing issues to look into.  No worries here.  

 

Thanks.

Well, it must have the same cause as this, so it needs to be check out.

Hello,
In the MCDU -> F-PLN the background WP shows the UTC / FL in large numbers.
FROM UTC SPD / ALT
YZV 1232 / FL359
With FL359 I already see that at 9 something is missing.
The other WPs are in front of us, the numbers are a bit smaller.
If I represent the MCDU extra and make it wider or narrower, I see either all or only 3 digits (LOZ as in the example).
This has nothing to do with Windows, but if the window changes, the font must change in the same proportion.
That works in the other level in length.
Please check this please.
Greeting CFG874 Bernd

 

Hallo,
In der MCDU --> F-PLN wird der hinter liegende WP die UTC / FL in grossen Zahlen dargestellt.
FROM           UTC              SPD/ALT
YZV             1232               / FL359   
Bei FL359 sehe ich schon das bei der 9 etwas fehlt. 
Bei den anderen WP die vor uns liegen sind die Zahlen etwas kleiner.
Wenn ich die MCDU extra darstelle und breiter oder schmaler mache, sehe ich entweder alles oder nur noch 3 Stellen (LOZ wie im Beispiel ).
Das hat aber nichts mit Windows zu tun, sondern wenn das Fenster sich verändert muß sich die Schrift im gleichen Verhältnis verändern.
In der anderen Ebene in der Länge funktioniert das doch auch.
Bitte überprüfen sie dies Bitte.
Gruß CFG874 Bernd

Please try changing your scaling option to Aspect Ratio and see if that makes a difference for you.

Hello, I tried your suggestion. Letting the display control the scaling, letting the GPU control the scaling and requesting the driver scaling to over ride game setting.  All with the same results.  However, what it did do was to set all color settings back to default so I'll have to re-calibrate all 3 of my monitors again.

@CFG874 a screenshot would be nice


Hello mopperle,
Once the MCDU fixed in the Airbus, where with zoom or without plays no role.
Then 2 * MCDU window solved and widened. The change in height does not matter.

Hallo mopperle,
Einmal die MCDU fest im Airbus, wobei mit Zoom oder ohne spielt keine Rolle.
Dann 2*  MCDU Fenster gelöst und breiter gemacht. Die Veränderung der Höhe spielt dabei keine Rolle.

I can collaborate with @CFG874, resizing the popup window does indeed reveal the remainder of the frequencies on the right, however, the VC still shows the truncated frequencies.Capture.thumb.JPG.c7b8ca547a4078aed488df9d237eb28c.JPG

Fixed in 1.2.3.2. Thank you.
