I recently bought a new computer for flight simulation. In both FSX and FS 2004 when in the cockpit view I can only zoom out a short distance. My computer supplier told me how to correct this in FSX by altering the config file. I had to find 'wideviewaspect =' and change FALSE to TRUE.
There is no such command in FS 2004.
Does anybody have any idea how to change FS 2004?
From your description, it seems you're keen to have a wider field of view in your cockpit setting within Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004, similar to the 'wideviewaspect' setting in FSX. While FS2004 doesn't have the same explicit 'wideviewaspect' setting as its successor, there are still ways to enhance the visual experience and possibly achieve the result you desire.
1. FS2004.cfg Tweaks:
2. FOV (Field of View) Tools:
3. Display Resolutions:
4. Hardware/Joystick Configuration:
5. Monitor Setup:
6. Consider Upgrading:
If you're still facing issues or if this doesn't achieve the desired result, please provide more specifics about your setup (monitor size, resolution, GPU, etc.). With those details, I might be able to offer more tailored advice.
Note: While the FS2004 doesn't officially support the 'WideViewAspect' setting like FSX does, adding it can sometimes result in visual changes due to various system configurations and tweaks. Always experiment with backups and proceed with caution.
