Hello,

Just did a completly fresh install, and this is the Main panel I got on Apollo 11 - Quickstart.

http://img528.imageshack.us/my.php?image=mnpnlapds9.jpg

This the same as the LM panel 14 (I have another post on that but just figured out how to take and post screenshots).

The CM panel only looks this way when on full panel, its fine when set to split panel.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for all your work and help

That looks suspiciously like a video card error.

Is this error visible when you first start the scenario?  What about if you change views and back again? does it go away?  If it does this is a video card bug and the only solution I can think of is to use the smaller panels.  I suspect it's caused by not having enough video ram.

Hello,

Thanks for your response,

Yes the error is there from the start (all scenarios). Its is only for the CM main panel when 'Full panel' is selected on the Extras tab of the Orbiter Launch Panel. Changing views does nothing (F1/F8 or ctrl-arrow).
When I select 'Split Main Panel' on the Extras tab the error goes away.

Many Thanks.

Ok, based on my own testing, I have never seen this occur, so it begs a couple questions, especially considering the nature of the error.

First, is this error visible right away or does it appear when you scroll to the right.

Second, what is your screen resolution.

Third, what video card do you use.

It is possible that the problem is simply that your video card just can't handle the full system.  If that is the case, you will have to stick with the split panels, which is of course why it's there.

Yes, that's the infamous panel stretch bug, which typically happens with older ATI cards, I had it myself with my old computer. Using split panels is the only known solution actually.

Hello,

Thanks for the replies, I was unaware of that problem. I was actually thinking of getting a new video card, now I have a real reason to get one Happy

Thank You
