Hi all just a few tips IF you use the TAC display..

If you find the TAC display too large you can resize it by going into C:\Users\(your name)\AppData\Roaming\OBD_Games\OBDWW1 Over Flanders Fields and finding the ViewUI.xml file (Backup 1st).

Right click and open with Notepad, Sroll down near the bottom until you find

<TacticalDisplay BGIMage="" BGPos="0 0" BGSize="512 512" BGScale="0.30" BackColor="0x1f0000FF" Mode="0"/>
<TacticalDisplayMetric BGIMage="" BGPos="0 0" BGSize="512 512" BGScale="0.30" BackColor="0x1f0000FF" Mode="0"/>

And change the BGscale= from 0.30 to 0.25 or even 0.20 if you like on BOTH lines,it'll make your Tac display smaller Save and exit. make sure filetype is set to *.* first in notepad, then save as ViewUi.xml otherwise it will save it with .txt on the end which won't work

When on the main flight screen Shift+T Turns TAC On/Off It (Can be dragged if required to anywhere on the screen if required with the mouse button) pressing T will toggle between aircraft,structures, airfields ect
Shift+D toggles messages on screen and CTRL+D will give you more advice ie (when to turn on engines ect)

Hope this helps any newbies or even old heads. thumbsup

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

good advice. A much less intrusive size.
