Stary, I think I fixed to issue with the gauges, PM of a modified file heading your way. Also the F7F is missing or has some odd data(Manifold Pressure) in the lines below from the engine entries in its data ini file. The ones below I puled from an F4U variant with the same engine as the F7F.

 

MinManifoldPressure=26

MaxManifoldPressure=66
GasTempIdleRPM=70
GasTempMaxRPM=80
GasTempChangeRate=0.1
OverheatTemp=90
DamageTempDelta=20
OilPressIdleRPM=70.0
OilPressMaxRPM=80.0
OilPressChangeRate=0.4
LowOilPress=50.0
LowOilPressTempDelta=100

Excellent, Stary, thanks a lot. :clapping:  :clapping:  :clapping:

 

BTW I have just tried with converting the five main BMP files in the cockpit folder (F7F_Misc.BMP, F7F_Pit_framing1.bmp, Seat.BMP, Tigercat_cockpit1.bmp and Tigercat_Panels_F7F1.bmp) to JPG format, and they seem to work fine in flight with no loss of graphics quality that I can see. It saves about 15Mb of size on the hard drive.

interesting but I doubt as the model reads specified type of graphics file (say, BMP) are you sure it doesn't simply read the BMP if you keep them in the cockpit folder that is..? Or you removed the bitmaps and the sim still reads from jpeg? That's interesting to say the least

Pretty sure that the game engine cast automatically from BMP to JPG for the skins but also for cockpit materials

yes it does;

if one converts skins of any type from bmp to jpg, removes (or stores the bmps in a sub-folder) the game WILL read the jpgs.

 

but what I find funny, saving 15 megs when most people have 1T or above HDs is silly!!!

      Can someone do a cockpit for SU-25T/SM with better Shkval/Mercury display resolution?
      Thank you.

      SF2 "MiG Alley" Wings Over Korea (KAW v1.2) Hi-Res 1920X1080 Menu Screens and Music v7
      By Viper 04/26/2020
      Note: I removed all the nation sounds from this Menu packs for size reasons. If you intend to install the "VIPER63A HQ Menu Sounds" pack, please install that pack first. Installing the HQ Sound pack over the Menu pack may overwrite some of the menu specific music files. You can always re-install this menu pack to get the menu specific theme music back.
      I made these upgraded alternate "Korean Air War" themed Menu screens to go with Do335's "SF2 Wings Over Korea" package!
       
      Pleae unzip the compressed file and preview the new screens before installing them. I recommend doing this as there are some alternate screens I have in there that you might like better.
       
      If you choose to install these screens, I recommend that you back up your FLIGHT and MENU folders in the SF2 Mod folder you're installing this mod into. Just in case you want to go back to your original setup.
       
      To install, simply unzip and copy the uncompressed FLIGHT and MENU folders to your StrikeFighter2 mod folder.
       
      My StrikeFighter2 mod on Win10 64-bit was..(yours may be different)...

      Is the Mirage Factory team able to make a proper cockpit for their F-14D mod?  I love the fact that they have put so much effort into making the F-14 Superpack as realistic as is possible within SF2, except for the F-14D cockpit.  It appears to use the exact same pit as the F-14B, even though the Super Tomcat had some of its gauges rearranged to allow for 2 MFDs.
          At left is what is currently included.           
      At right is what the real F-14D Cockpit looked like.  I don't know if TMF has anything like this in the works, but if not, I just wanted to remind them (i'm sure they already know given the realism of the other F-14 variants).

      Hi,
      I was wondering if someone could answer some questions on the implementation of WEP on the PROP_ENGINE system type?
      1) Was this system fully implemented in SFP2 or have more recent patches broken it?
      2) The WEPTimeLimit= parameter - does this actually work?
      I've been trying to figure this out by creating engines with almost zero "SLPowerDry" and giving a reasonable level of "SLPowerWEP". The hope is to test if WEP is actually working - the idea being to get the aircraft to takeoff and climb for a minute or two at WEP power before seeing power suddenly drop off as WEP runs out. All that happens is that the plane struggles to even move on the runway with almost zero thrust - WEP never kicks in, effectively giving a 0hp engine.
      If anyone has any clues or can even share the engine section from TK's P-51D as an example that'd be great.
      Thanks!
