MSFS: Plugin, Freeware - Cockpit Tooltip Remover

Recommended Posts

Means nothing to me, but I vaguely remember seeing people complaining about it, so here's a possible solution. Let us know how it goes!

There’s greatness in simplicity sometimes. The UNIX philosophy of “do one thing well” applies here with this simple utility by PhutureProof which elegantly removes the cockpit tooltips from showing up when you mouse over any of the switches, buttons, etc in your cockpit - giving you an overall more immersive and realistic flight. Install it in the same way you would any other scenery or aircraft addon, by extracting the folder to your Community Folder.

Wonder if it's the same from

which has two versions. I use the one for smaller tooltips with transparent background.

Seems to be the same name for the creator.

Yup, I would go so far as to say this is a stupid feature. Too many times I have tried to change the heading bug on the compass for example and been unable to see where the heading bug is because of the word not allowed tooltip being overlaid exactly where I am trying to look.

A seriously thoughtless feature, poorly implemented. Please Asobo, give us a checkbox to be rid of the useless feature once and for all!

Yep, like when a tooltip blocks the altimeter read-out on the G1000 while you're turning the barometer knob. How did that pass alpha and beta?

Now if only there was a mod for the map so that the airport info has transparent background.

I just saw this on another site.  Wouldn't turning it off or "hide tooltips" get rid of it?

Awaiting the new Microsoft Flight Sim and the purchase of a new system.  Running a Chromebook for now! :cool:

Unfortunately, that option is not working at the moment. The solutions posted here are a temporarily fix until Asobo decides to fix the bug.
