The instrument panel is missing from the 2d front "COCKPIT" view. "COCKPIT" view is checked properly and is set as default view, but I only get the standard line of instruments at the bottom of the screen, or an open view when I press the "W" key. I can page to normal side, top and rearward views, but in the front cockpit the instrument panel just isn't there. I've tried everything I can think of to get the panel to display, but I'm stuck...can't think of anything else to try. Think a re-install is needed? :?: :?:

Virtual cockpit view works normally but I don't think this acft is intended to be flown in the VC mode, or is it? :?

A2A Aircraft is VC only. :D
You can some add ons that allow you to build your own 2D cockpit, but as A2A uses a lot of non standard variables this is a bit tricky.

Many thanks for the quick response. I was beginning to think that the T-6 program, as complex as it is, was designed with VC in mind as the normal 2D view just isn't flexible enough to allow you to work controls and switches located below the normal instrument panel. You confirmed it for me.

Thanks again Thomas, and a Happy and Healthy New Year to you and yours!!!

Hello,

yes 2D views where already being depreciated bit by bit in FS2004, by FSX and beyond they tend to very much be a thing of the past, have been superceeded by simpits, hardware and fully functional realistic virtual cockpits.

thanks,
Lewis
