Gizmo Sidetray & Sound Menu

Recommended Posts

On my 21:9 (3440x1440 100hz) monitor, the gizmo menu on the righthand side doesn't show up at all. Also, the sound volume control isn't adjustable. If I click any of the sound sliders they go to 0% and cannot be changed unless I click the "reset all" button. 


this all works fine on my 16:9 monitor. Any ideas? I've done a fresh install and everything else works.

I'm running multi monitor. The 21:9 is the furthest left monitor. However. If I put the XP11 sim on my 16:9 monitor in the middle, it works just fine. No idea whats going on. Only found this bug by wanting to turn the sound down and I couldn't, temporary fix was to just move the sim over to a different monitor, adjust sounds, and then move it back to my sim monitor.


Edit: I should clarify, I'm only using ONE monitor for the sim, but have multiple monitors in my PC setup. 


Edit 2: If I hover my mouse inside the pop-out GTN750 window, the gizmo sidetray menu shows up. However, if I move my mouse out of the GTN750 window, it disappears. So I still can't click on anything. If I disable the GTN750 entirely, i still can't get to the ridehand menu.

Basically, the XP11 brought multi-window support with it and changed the way that window-coords are shared with plugins.

Gizmo and the Saab were written pre XP11 so they do not account fully for these new coords.


As you've discovered, the monitor that X-Plane resides on matters, it's not so much the physical location of the monitor as it is the logical-id of the monitor.

Eg: Your 16:19 screen is probably logical ID 1 and 21:9 might be 2 or 3.

The fact that screen-1 is in the center doesn't matter. X-Plane will feed us useful position data.

When on screen-2 (far left, 21:9) the position data is somewhere in the negative values and thus the tool-tray mouse detect code doesn't fire correctly.


Better multi-monitor support has been on my list for a long time now but life has a habit of getting in the way.


There is currently a dev-beta of Gizmo64 v20.x being tested privately which has support for the new XP11 pop out windows and so on so support is coming for all the multi-screen goodies but it takes time.


For now, the best you can do is continue to move the sim window around. Sorry I can't give you a better solution.
