FSX Boeing 717-200 Panel Dual Monitors

FSX Boeing 717-200 panel for dual monitors. This Panel requires a computer operating system and video card (s) that can span the display across two monitors. A working knowledge of how to set up the displays is assumed developed by the author. [INSTALLATION] The installation is the same as for any other panel, if you know what youre doing you can skip this.. 1) Backup the folder called panel in your aircraft folder so that you can change back to it if you need to. 2) Copy the folder called panel into your aircraft folder. 3) Open the folder called Gauges and copy the contents into your main flight simulator X gauges folder. Warning! if asked to replace a gauge the call is yours. If in doubt then backup the original gauge first! Thats it! [Technical Bit] This panel was developed and tested

With flight simulator X running in full screen mode set the display resolution to 2048x768 or greater so that the cockpit view displays scenery and planes that are not stretched or squashed. If frame rate is a problem the displays can be used in the Windows environment developed by setting the XP desktop to span both monitors and selecting a screen resolution that shows scenery and planes in the correct proportions as above. The cockpit view zoom should be automatically set to 0. 50. If the airplane appears to skew across the runway the cockpit zoom will need to be set manually to 0. 50. There should not be a problem using other operating systems provided the display can be horizontally spanned using the card providers software. For the best effect both monitors should be the same model and make. The default heading set developed by the Views parameter in the Panel. cfg file, is the captain flying. When taxiing or on the runway, the centre line will be in the centre window in the left hand monitor. When this forms a straight line ahead the aircrafts front wheels are on the centre line. This is a compromise which allows the cockpit view to be spanned across both displays avoiding the need for separate windows. [COPYRIGHT] I have not made any of the gauges. They are either default or third party so credit goes to the original authors. The panel bit map has been created using multiple sources including a half panel developed by Capt. Rad James Yarjan, modified using Paint Shop. If you recognise any part as yours then thank you and your work is acknowledged.
