Thread: VC cockpit lost!?

  1. Default VC cockpit lost!?

    Everything was super cool, until I lost my VC in both Learjets. Not in midflight, but I recently opened up the Lear, and had only the 2D cockpit. Rebooting, of course, makes no diff.

    (OK, so my Lears are in P3D, but the architecture is the same, and there are a lot more folks over in this forum.)

    Everything else on these 2 planes works just fine. I looked at the panel.cfg, and compared it with that on the Lears in FSX (which I still have on my PC). They look very similar, if not identical; apparently the VC is the "Window 00."

    I am not looking for trouble, and will therefore not do a reinstall of P3d. I am hoping someone else has experienced this, and has a quick fix.

    Thanks all in advance,

    If you right click in the cockpit, do you not have the option to change view?

    Post your panel.cfg if not.

    The VC entries for the default Learjet 45 panel.cfg are actually [Vcockpit01], [Vcockpit02] & [Vcockpit03] located at the bottom of the panel.cfg file.

    [Window 00] refers to the 2D cockpit.

    In the <Lear45> folder, then the <model> subfolder, check if the Lear45_interior.mdl is still there.

    (based on FSX, I don't haved P3d, and after all this is the FSX forum)

    Panel configs have no influence on the VC showing (except for gauges of course).
    Don't follow that path if the VC isn't there at all.

    Right click brings up the menu, including "Cockpit," but the submenu including "VC Cockpit" is greyed out.

    I couldn't post my panel.cfg as a Word doc ("invalid file," it said), so here it is copied directly:

    Wim:

    Yep, the Lear45_interior.mdl file is right there where you say it should be. See post from CRJ above, and my answer. As I understand your post, we are barking up the wrong tree in looking at the panel.cfg.

    Yes, but no idea what tree to bark up to instead (no idea what I'm saying , is that some English proverb?).

    In that same folder, does model.cfg exist? And does it look like this
    Code:
    [models]
    normal=lear45
    interior=Lear45_Interior
    Can't be the problem either imo, it should have raised other alarms. No preview, no outside view etc...
    I'll have to bail out on this one.

    That's because the forum doesn't allow that file extension. But it does allow zip files and you could have zipped the word doc and upload the zip file.


    No idea what is going on here. The panel looks good. VC is there. MDL looks like it's there.

    Do you have other VC issues with other aircraft?
