When I run XP11 and start to fly, if I move my view then all objects (outside, view, plane parts...) look streched as if I have an old computer unable to support XP11...

1) What graphic settings should I click in XP11?

2) I have a MacBookPro 2016 / OS Sierra 10.12.3 / 2,9GHz processor Intel Core i5 / 16 Go memory 2133MHz LPDDR3 / Graphic card: Intel Iris Graphics 550, VRAM 1536 Mo , GPU

Should I do anykind of special settings in my MacbookPro as well?

If the view looks stretched, it may be a setting in your "Graphics Options" called "Field of View" (FOV) that is possibly set too high. I recommend setting lateral Field of View to around 75° or whatever works for you. If FOV is set too high, the screen will appear stretched; if it is set too low, your view will appear 'zoomed-in'. Find what works for your monitor.

EDIT: around 65° to 75°

The FOV was already set by default at 60. I've lowered it down to 40 and the strechings remain. The problem now is that objects strech + when I move my view it kinda freezes, as if it is a slow motion effect (??).

What should I do in order to get a smooth camera moving view + no strechings?

Hi,

I have mine set to 70/71 around there although it isn't a laptop.

If you had an Nvidia Card, I could tell a bunch of tweaks but you have an Intel HD series which aren't that great for XP

What are your FPS since below 20 will cause the sim to not run in real time?

I7 4770K@3.5 ghz

EVGA GTX 970 4 gb VRAM

16 gb RAM

Samsung 850 SSD 256 gb

Keep in mind my PC is struggling now with 11 but I plan to overclock my CPU.
