menu bar?

IFLYSTUFF Guest

i remember in fs2002, when u press alt in the middle of flight, the menu bar would show up, and the game screen wouldnt resize itself. in other words the menu bar would just show up on top of ur game overlapping it. in fs2004 i noticed when i press alt, the game screen has to squeeze itself so that the menu bar fits. my computer isnt that great so this causes it to kind of freeze for a second. is there a way around this? sorry if its hard to understand i cant really explain it well.

It's probably your video card being old.
At least it works, if you get a new machine later on it'll perform better.

BTW: Is there any way to keep the menu bar up there all the time?

Alt or Alt +Enter, I forget which. Set it in window mode and you'll get better FPS and graphics.

If you press ALT,the menu bar will appear(i'm assuming you are currently using Full Screen mode), then go to views, you will see "full screen". By clicking this you can get or remove the menu bar.

I found the Alt key to hide or show the menu bar. Is there a specific file or files that NEWLY downloaded aircraft have (other than the ones provided by FSX) that allow for moving around the cockpit with the hat switch? I have downloaded 3 additional aircraft, but the Virtual Cockpit view is as if I am sitting on the nose of the airplane.

Thanks

I know my gross ignorance is showing, but please: What is "Gr" or "AltGr"? I do not have any key on my (standard) keyboard that resembles "Gr".
Please explain....
