Re: Can the VR "White Tracking Dot" be Turned Off

Would it be possible to provide a toggle for this to appear and disappear in a future rev just like FlyInside does?

Re: Impossible to load the Aerosoft professional A320-321

I have no issues with P3Dv4.5 and the Aerosoft A320.
Perhaps you should post on the Aerosoft A320 Pro forum.

Can the VR "White Tracking Dot" be Turned Off

I'm currently running P3DV4.5 and wanted to disable the white dot seen in VR that tracks head movement. Is there a way to disable or toggle the white dot on and off? I find it very distracting to the VR experience. I never lock the mouse cursor to my head gaze and simply move the larger mouse cursor...

Re: How do I get Simconnect Message Window to Display in VR?

Radar Contact is a long standing widely used third party app that provides much better ATC. It’s interface uses the Simconnect message window. Is there something in particular I should investigate to change regarding these windows to make it work?

How do I get Simconnect Message Window to Display in VR?

Re: VR Pop-up Window Location Question

Looking for a similar answer as well if there is a way to "SAVE" the window location once you get it set. Example, once I move and resize the map if I disable and renable it, it's back to the default position and size. https://www.prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6314&t=131853 Above is the link t...

Re: ATC Window Placement Question?

Beau Thanks so much for the info. I have been having great success with establishing my preferred VR locations. It’s tedious for sure but rewarding when accomplished. I was wondering if there exists a command line to change the transparency of a pop up in VR as well. I don’t want to use a global UI ...

I have modified the entry in the missionpanels.cfg file for placement and size but there’s no z distance variable. I notice t...

Re: P3D v4.4 Issue Discovered with A2A New Windshield Rain Effect

No it’s actually an issue with their new rain effects update. I’ve worked with the A2A team and for now I have to comment out or delete the new section of code they have for rain effects. They are working on a solution as I pointed out Aerosofts implementation of TrueGlass works fine.

P3D v4.4 Issue Discovered with A2A New Windshield Rain Effect

I wanted to let you know there's a new issue with the new windshield effects when using the latest release of P3Dv4.4. When I want to use my virtual mouse cursor in VR it will not penetrate the windshield as it sees it as a cockpit surface. You might ask "why is this a problem?" Well when I want to ...

Re: Undock and Move ATC to Upper Left Corner in VR doesn’t work for me. Any thoughts

I was able to delete all the config files and rebuild them and now I have ATC capability in VR but no mouse click capability on the selections, I have to use the keyboard or VoiceAttack :(
