Great download, but the HUD display doesn't work in virtual cockpit mode. Any ideas on how to make it work?

The Modeler may not have included it in the package...

That would only work with the 2-D panel. The modeler had to build the VC and is part of the MODEL itself. You can't alter it in any way. The 2-D panel isn't part of the model so there may be a HUD for it, but it won't show up in the VC.

Like i said in my post above, if he didn't model the HUD into the plane, your never going to see it in the VC.

You'll have better luck finding a new one.

Which F-14D did you get?

Did you move all the Gauges files from the F14 zip file into the FSX gauges file?

I downloaded the FSX Grumman F-14D Tomcat Rev 2. Flight dynamics (V 03-07), FDE and Aircraft.cfg by Ivan Kostic. Sound by Christoffer Peterson. FSX aircraft.cfg and panel.cfg rework/migration by Steve Hinson. Model by J. Dobbings and D. Cattaneo. New DFX model in 4 months. FSX rework and original files by Ivan Kostic and Steve Hinson. Carrier ops pack 3 by Rob Barendregt, Doug Dawson and Nick Needham. Rev 2 has all the fixes and updates. FSX default fuel dump function. Speedbrake is opened incrementally. FSX camera views created by Bob Familton. Rev 2 is an auto-installed zip file using WinZip's "Folder As Names" method. Read install instructions for FSUIPC.dll rev 4.9. Overwrite ALL Gauges= YES. Click YES for "TRUST GAUGES?".

I moved all the gauges files from the F-14 zip file into the FSX gauge file including the HUDHornet file folder.

There is a rev 3 out. its FSXF14D3.zip. It might be here on Flyaway or its over on Flightsim.

Yet, still, I think it has no hud. Its not what you're doing, the modeler needs to build it into the virtual cockpit.

I appreciate your sending me the JPGs. The first JPG you list shows the 2D cockpit, and the HUD display is active and visible. The second JPG you list shows the virtual cockpit, and there is no Heads-up Display shown.

That's exactly the problem I'm having with the FSX Grumman F-14D Tomcat Rev 2. Flight dynamics (V 03-07) that I downloaded. The HUD is active in the 2d cockpit, but doesn't work in the virtual cockpit.

Once again, I appreciate the JPGs because they highlight the problem.
