P3D "Scaleform Window" Question / Support for Radar Contact in VR

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I recently installed the free released version of Radar Contact and it works beautifully. I have been able to utilize all aspects of it and interact with it fine. However I cannot get the interaction window to appear in VR.

I have contacted both Pete and LM regarding the issue and it comes down to only "Scaleform Windows" are supported in VR by P3D not SimConnect Windows. I can use and interact with windows like the default ATC and add-on SODE windows in VR because they are apparently "Scaleform" windows whereas Pete developed the user interface window for Radar Contact as a simple SimConnect window and he is not able to turn it into a Scaleform window. 

Is there anyone out there that might be able to assist or point me in a direction that would lead to a potential solution to be able to see the Radar Contact window in VR like the SODE and ATC windows can be seen?

Here's the link from LM regarding Scaleform windows:

Scaleform windows will show in VR. If the message window you're referring to created as a Scaleform window, you should be able to make it appear in VR. 

Here's some more information on Scaleform panels:

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
