The question is a bit a silly one but nevertheless: I recently downloaded the demo version of FSX to make up my mind if I should buy it in the end. However, I have a widescreen on my computer and FSX just linearly scales up the 2D cockpit panel resulting in a poor view "over" the panel. This results in me crashing all the time as while trying to make a visual approach, in the default CRJ, for instance, I need to have way too much downward pitch to see the runway resulting in a sinkrate driving me right into the ocean off Maho beach...
Does anyone have the same problem and has a solutioin, is it just me being unable to fly ( )?
WARNING! The post above should be taken with a grain of salt! Furthermore, it may be slightly biased towards A.
That is the main reason why I don't use FSX. I bought it, found out the same as you did and hardly ever used it since then. You cannot "move" the seat up to see above the glareshield. Here you have to use another view for the approaches and landings.
This is something which sucks BIG times on FSX!!!! FS lost the reality here...

Quoting David L (Reply 9): Ah, well... you didn't say you wanted to adjust your view and have FS run for more than 10 minutes. duck
Yeah, that would be too much to dream of.
Quoting David L (Reply 9): Is that since you sorted the key assignments or was the problem there before? I don't see how the key assignments would cause a crash.
It happened yesterday for the first time ever on FSX. I was departing PHNL on my way to NZAA (LH Cargo MD11F of course) and the first time it CTD at 10,000 feet the 2nd try 20 minutes after departure. Without doing anything...
