Thats great :).

But i assume for us TrackIR users, it wont help much?

There isnt a stable Aimdot which doesnt move, when you use Freelook to look arrond?

But either way, thanks for the work. Still can use it for the Hud Data :)

Thanks for the addon! It's very useful! There is a problem though.. when loading a save game your head/aim is down:

Pretty much, it functions like the HUD on the Apache or Wildcat and afaik they have the same limitation.

Hmm, I'll try and repro that.

@mirrors

Thanks :)

Glad some people find this handy.

The loading issue used to apply to Mando Missiles' HUDs, and he'd probably post a whole page of code on how to fix it.

You can dePBO it and change the line

requiredVersion=1.570000;

so that it should run without 1.57

nice finally find ur thread where i can get a message to u,,, i just wonder if u r gonna intergrate it with ACE, i thought thats what u were planning on, since i saw u first announce this idea on the dev haven ACE bug and feature tracker page, some thing change?

it will surly come in handy since the current model gauges isn't really that pratical.

Referring to this: http://dev-heaven.net/issues/16182 ?

Hopefully, it will be integrated soon. I ran into a few issues with it, namely that the proper crosshairs were not shown for the FLIR Little Birds (which I'm guessing has to do with their weapons being in a different turret in the config). Also the ".50 cal GAU-19" text does not display on the HUD.
