VR Pop-up Window Location Question

Postby powayjoe » Tue Jul 10, 2018 6:50 pm

I would like to change the default position of the VR pop-up window to be closer so not to have to use the zoom feature.

I realize the window can be moved, rotated and resized but I wish the feature that exists in Flyinside where you can pull it in or push it out was available in P3D.

Since this option isn't available and zooming in creates some visual distortions I would like to change the default position to be lower and closer but I can't find the config file location that sets these default parameters for the VR pop-up window.

Anyone know where they exist so I can customize the default location to my liking?

Thanks in advance

Looking for a similar answer as well if there is a way to "SAVE" the window location once you get it set. Example, once I move and resize the map if I disable and renable it, it's back to the default position and size.

How does one even get the windows to pop-up while in VR. For example, you would think that the ATC window would auto pop-up when they communicate with you, like in Flyinside, but I get nothing.

Can you shed some light on how I can get the ATC window to open while in VR?

Thanks,

Hello,

Thanks for the suggestion. The ability to save/change default position of the VR windows is not currently available, but we will look into this feature for a future release.

Hello,

For information regarding controls, please see the documentation (Instrument panel section).
https://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv4/prepar3d ... ality.html

The ATC window may need to be dragged to the upper left corner of Prepar3D before entering VR to see the ATC in VR due to a previously reported bug.

Upgraded to 4.4 and I'm positive besides MOVE and RESIZE I could also 'ROTATE' which I can't for the life of me find anymore. All the links you posted are coming up 404 page not found.

Is the rotate panel window in VR still a thing or was it removed?

Above is the link to my other post about custom placing VR pop up windows and remembering the location. I have modified config files to accomplish this and it works well but is very tedious.

Also yes you can rotate the window just look in the SDK manual under VR I don’t have the keys memorized of what you have to hold down when using the mouse because I set up a VoiceAttack command to accomplish all the key hold downs for me for all the window adjustment commands in VR
