Altimeter setting

Is it possible to alter the altimeter display from 'inches of Hg' to millibars for a Cessna in FS2004?
If it is how is it done?

Go to Settings, International..., and change your Units of measure preferences.

If that doesn't do the trick, it's easy to set it back to default the way it was: U.S System.

You can't select the actual setting scale on the altimeter to metric. By setting the program to the metric system in Settings, you can input the altimeter setting in millibars but only in the Weather section(User defined, advanced). The altimeter scale will move to the correct setting but will read in inches. An option would be to use a printed conversion scale.

See my previous post where a person had a similar problem.

Thanks CRJ Capt. Any idea where I might find a conversion chart.
I do have a CX-2 flight computer so I suppose I could use that.

Cheers
