Here's something very weird about the Captain Sim 757, which I bought. There is no normal 2D
cockpit view. I'm really not sure how you can fly it on Block A, with no virtual cockpit, because it basically has the Cap. Sim. toolbar like on the 727, which includes the overhead panel. The overhead panel from normal cockpit view is tiny, but functions. The only way you can fly the CS
757 is from virtual cockpit mode, and the cockpit looks outstanding. It really is good, but it's a memory burner. I have a 256 mb video card and a 3.4 pentium, and it doesn't run all that well. I did some touch-n-go's to learn to fly it and then I was doing an EGE-DFW
colors and it shut down on me during my climbout from EGE. (Microsoft Flight Sim has encountered an error and needs to close).
The good thing about virtual cockpit mode, however is that you can click on an area (there are like 20 defined areas on the overhead panel) and a visually stunning part of the overhead panel will pop up. For example, click on the fuel pumps and a big fuel pump panel will pop up on you. The graphics look great.
The virtual cabin is first class only and there is no wing view, but you can, as the videos show, go into the bathroom, you can turn on the tv monitors, close each window shade, etc.
Overall, I'll give it another chance, but I'm disappointed so far. I wish they included a normal 2d cockpit, but their 2d view is just strange!
