SSG Reveals Closer Look at System Displays and Centre Pedestal of 747-8 V2
Even more previews of Supercritical Simulations Group's (SSG) 747-8 V2 have been posted to x-plane.org.
"About resolution. The actual resolution was decided by the team after many tests, the resolution of the displays, the fonts is all designed by the SSG team. The true type fonts was designed by Kostas under real B748 pilots advising.
"We decided for this max size a medium 3 years old good gaming computer with 2GB video card could run it at the minimum 20 fps. in a moderate resolution. So 4k cockpit panel was the first to be eliminated because it was much heavier. We don't want to make a plane to a very small part of the XP community that is already not for all.Then this images bellow was taken from my computer in a normal way in XP. Myself I am happy that can have my 2K monitor filled by a PFD and ND without a popup up for example. True a/c displays is 15" with a res of 800px. our is 640px."
