I am as of current, using a laptop with the usual 1366x768 built in limit for it's monitor... And while it is indeed lower than the recommended height I am still able to have use of select SAM systems in the Sim

This program is needed

To do it first open up Altmove since we're going to need one of it's features for this...


Press the stop button on all but the first option since none of those are needed for this (though if you like those features then feel free to leave them on)


Next open the first option up by clicking on the maximize box and make sure the settings are as follows...


Now open up the Sim and if you're on a laptop or have a monitor limited to 1366x768 like I am, this is about as much of the menu window you will be able to see.



However if you hold alt and click and then drag on any part of the window you can pull it up out of the bottom of the screen and view the bits that are cut off...

Now this is not a complete fix to lower resolutions but it does allow usage of select SAM systems...

The 9k33M2 (SA-8B) is fully functional as far as the manual dictates it's use is...


The only source of problems will be the firing officer's station because the buttons for automatic and manual tracking options are cutoff at the bottom.


However if you use altmove to move the panel up a bit you can see the tops of the buttons, which will give you access to their functionality.

Note: I'm still curious as to what all the other fiddly buttons and switches and knobs do since they're not mentioned in the manual...

The S-200VE Vega-E (SA-5B Gammon) likewise is also fully functional...



The target acquisition officer's radar display and the target tracking officer's control panel are both cutoff at the bottom.



Using the altmove function on these windows reveal that thankfully they are not cutoff at the bottom. Now if we just pull up the target acquisition officer's radar and the target tracking officer's control panel as well as the range and Doppler dials we can now have full use of the system as dictated by the manual...


Of note is that while the most important panels (the ones at the bottom on the manual) are full and not cutoff even if they're pulled out from the bottom of the screen using altmove, the other panels are still missing their bottom bits like the launch indicator... However the top of the switch to change from GSN to KRO is still visible and retains its functionality...
