Hi Vlad, I was just looking at SimVimPanel. My idea was to use a 22-inch 16/9 monitor that I have, 1920x1080 resolution. I noticed that the panel for the barbaron has a 16/10 monitor so it appears small on my monitor. Is there any possibility of solving this? Just not having to buy another monitor.

Thank you

Marco,

The gauges are smaller  because of much higher PPM in this monitor.
To correct this you need to  open the "settings.ini" file in SimVim folder and enter this line:

DPI = 100
( it's your monitor resolution - 100 pixels per inch, or something close to this)

Or, instead  you can add this line:

Screen_Horizontal = 487

(If you screen width is 487 mm, if not, enter what is yours in mm)

Note, that the instruments positions is adapted for the screen with 16:10 ratio, not for 16:9, so some gauges (e.g. engine)  can be not fit the screen height, because the height of the 16:10 screen is 297 mm, and 16:9 height is about 275mm.
Just try.

Hi Vlad, two more questions about SimVimPanel. When I launch it the sim plugin reports an error:

"the followin parameter names are not recognized:

VOR_OBS2: deg
AP-Nav-Captured
AP_FD1_On
AP_APPR_Captured

In addition, the indicators of engine (CHT and EGT) and oil temperature and oil pressure do not work with the Carenado Baron. I imagine it depends on the fact that Carenado uses particular dataref. Is there any way to set these datarefs for SimVimPanel to read?

Thanks

Marco
