Since using Lee's excellent Head Movement Mod v3 (if you haven't downloaded this yet, what are you waiting for?), I've come across an issue with the pitboard.  The issue being that I can no longer see it.  Glancing only makes things slightly less unusable.

Is there any way of repositioning the board so that it is better centered in the corner of the screen and smaller (when looking forward)?  The 1955 mod seems to do this, and I can see more of the board when using that mod but it's still not enough.

Thanks for any assistance.

It looks like you are using a pretty narrow FOV. If you widen it more of the board should show.

Thanks for the replys.

The screenshot is shown using ptmac's "pitboard_30.3do" option in his pitboard_1.0 zip file.  This was the best option so far since now I can see the top of the board.  Half of the board is still obscured, however glancing reveals the rest of it.

Again, in the 1955 mod, almost the entire board is seen in the forward view and it is about 50% smaller, which is optimal for this FoV.  Tried using WinMip linked by Ginetto to get the same effect in the 1965 mod (and others) but to no avail.  I'm sure I'm missing something or doing something wrong.  Will try again when I have time.

Thanks again.

What FOV value are you using for each mod?

Thx Ginetto, this is a good to have file.

My cockpit 16:9 (but I use a monitor 21:9 so I see full mirrors)
