Yeah I can, use this to replace the avionics file and cockpit files for the bird. Can't help with the FM though. There isn't any range cue or Shoot cue though.

I'm not giving up, because the ideal solution would be to polish up the Avionics for the F-31A Cockpit. It's has the moving tips of the canards visible, and the correct rear view. I have tried several substitutes in the mean time. Here is what I ended up using for now, if anybody else want's a quick fix.

the new F-16 ones with NV …. they functioned almost perfectly, but the damn Canopy kept opening and shutting in flight.

the F/A-18 ones from 3 different Planes … the "SHOOTCUE" stayed on all the time.

a couple of F-5 ones …. the speed indicator box was empty and the missile lock box was inconsistent.

The best temporary solution I have found is the Canopy from the "EF-2000 EuroFighter _RAF". everything functions as it should, the "SHOOT" indicator in a set of lights on the HUD display mounts, and a circle when in Combat MODE, so there is one. It's a pretty easy swap too. All you need is the "Canopy" folder and the COCKPIT and AVIONICS ini files.

 

I was going to make another video …. but I kind of like leaving off with that whole "can you help this little Pony"  bit … :)

Thanks EricJ, but the RAF one works better. that one is practically the same except the range is not displayed. after a couple of minutes you can get used to the yellow. If that's one from a EF-2000, try the RAF one … and see what you think.

The next time I post for a Plane fix … I'm going to pull out a couple of Old Yeller Movie quotes. That Little Pony thing cracks me up.

I feel another video coming on …..

you might get a laugh out of this ...

I have a temp folder on my desktop called "The F-31A graveyard". That one is a pretty good fix and might help me tweek in the real one so I named it, model EJ1, so it wont get mixed up with all the ones that struck out.

The one that I found where everything works actually is the EF-2000 RAF one in the Darius Campaign… it's pretty much the same cockpit you picked, slightly better avionics, funny I never noticed it before those cockpits show twin rudders in rear view …. MIG 29s maybe.?

I'm gonna double check and see what's in the most recent EF-2000 update.

Well the one I picked was the original pit with a working HUD, not much else was in that 7z file, just something to get you flying with a working HUD.  Anyways, I don't think there has been much work on the EF2000 post Op Darius, as most of the players come and go, or come back, then go, or just go. So finding updates is going to realistically going to be hard as if a plane works well, not many people update it.

I don't fly many jets so I don't update as much as most people, and a little surprised I have a working HUD and you don't for your F-31.

I'm starting to understand little by little experimenting with these avionics. I want to help out, and with so many good Map creators, and Plane Modders here already, if I can get to a point where I can make a working avionics package … then I might be able to contribute too. That's one of the reasons I keep finding the unfinished ones and fiddling with them.

and I like flyin' them too …. 

And I also like Pony's … LOL

Lol okay

That's always good as my niche is skins, so I keep busy with that. But it's pretty cool wanting to learn the ins and outs, but you may have to get with somebody else who's experienced in avionics to get a leg up on that as I don't do avionics myself. But I recommend you start looking at avionics in real life, and stay away from the classified stuff as you can get into trouble, but it takes research for various things, such as displays. Stuff like the Raptor is just conjecture since nobody has access to the real jet as well as the Mustang, as its not even a real operational plane. But it's always fun like you said, to learn the ins and outs for stuff like that.

F-31A mod from 2010 ... model and cockpit etc are all by Dels.

https://combatace.com/files/file/10496-rockwellmbb-f-31a-mustang-ii-version-10-for-sf2/

The HUD is "missing" several symbols (all tga file stuff) because the game has got new effects in a later

update (2011-2012 or so) which require a new material section in the avionics ini file.

 

To fix the original avionics ini,

find the [HUD] section and add this line

HUDMaterial=HUDMaterial

and then below the [HUD] section the new HUDMaterial section:

[HUDMaterial]
EffectShaderName=fltHUD.fx
DepthBufferCheck=FALSE
DepthBufferWrite=FALSE
RenderedInOrder=FALSE
AlphaTestEnabled=TRUE
CullMode=NO_CULL
LightEnabled=FALSE
UseLightLevel=FALSE
SpecularEnabled=FALSE
EmissiveEnabled=FALSE
FogEnabled=FALSE
AmbientColor=1.000000,1.000000,1.000000,1.000000
DiffuseColor=1.000000,1.000000,1.000000,1.000000
ZBufferOffset=0
PriorityLevel=1
BlendOp=BLEND_SRC_ALPHA
NumTextureStages=1
TextureStage[01].TextureName=
TextureStage[01].MipMap=FALSE
TextureStage[01].FilterEnabled=TRUE
TextureStage[01].StageColorOp=TEXTURE_MODULATE_DIFFUSE
TextureStage[01].StageAlphaOp=TEXTURE_MODULATE_DIFFUSE

 

Save.

      Basically im editing the Su-35 cockpit  and i like the re texture ive been workin on 

      But the HUD i really wanna change to the Modern Flanker cockpit HUD made for Marc's Sukhoi's (HUD pic below)

      Hello Ya'all
      Im editing the cockpit of the Su-37 mod so i can fit it in my WIP  Su-35 Flanker-E, ive only changed the textures for it for now and im looking on ways to change the HUD display from the one default in the cockpit to the one below

      tried to just delete the HUD folder in the cockpit folder and copy this HUD folder there and i thought thats just it since when i change the Revi sight on 109's i just change the tga file and edit the .ini soo might need help..
      tried looking into the old forum post "Cockpit tips" or something by Russok and didnt found much that helps with HUD's

      Hi all.
      I want to get into making my own skins for planes. In particular I just want to make like fantasy mercenary skins/decals/factions/nations etc. but I haven't the slightest on how to do this. My current project is to have an air superiority gray F-106 with just some basic black custom number decals and a custom mercenary emblem.
      Once I figure this out I would love to skin mod base game aircraft such as the F-4C but that is a whole other can of worms because the files aren't even stored in the same place as the .ini so I'm at a loss.
      Any help appreciated!

      Hi guys, i have a very big issue regarding one of my favourite games of all time: Strike Fighters: Project 1.
      I play this beautiful old game on my PC and i run it pretty well at lowest settings and 1920x1080p (i had ALSO to change "default graphic card option" to  my high-performances NVIDIA graphic card, due to the fact that the game heavily lags if i run it with the default graphic card option, even if it's all set on lowest settings).
      After i figured out this little issue, the game runs pretty smoothly and at an high framerate so, what's the problem?
      The problem is that whenever i hit or shoot down a plane or i look at an explosion, the game freezes for a couple of seconds...
      So i don't know what to do and why this happens…   
      Is that because Strike Fighters: Project 1 is too old for a modern medium-high end PC? (I used to play it also on my previous low end Windows XP PC, and i never had any kind of problem)
      Should i play the game at lower resolutions even if all settings are already at lowest?
      Why had i to choose my high-performances NVIDIA graphic card to play the game without lag even if it's an old and well optimized game?
      Please help me, i know SF:P1 is a very old game and i should go for SF2, but the first one is one of my favourite games of all time and THIS PROBLEM MAKES THE GAME UNPLAYABLE!!!
      THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH, cause this is a HUGE PROBLEM, i really have no idea of what to do and i'm very confused about what's happening...

      0.9 OPEN BETA FOR F-111 CCIP BY JOSEFK
      View File Here is a wad of avionics.ini mods for the SF2 F-111s by @FastCargo.  Now granted I recommend @viper63a's F-111 add-ons to graft on top of 'em you can get here: https://combatace.com/files/category/630-f-111/ 
      Basically what I've done is add a CCIP or Continuously Calculated Impact Point to the HUD.  The intent is to give you the chance to be a lot more accurate droping Mk 80-series dumb bombs in the F-111.  Especially since  there is no feedback when bombing from the Weapons System Operator/WSO in SF2.  
      Now I realize this isn't realistic for the days of the F-111 when there was absolutely NO helmet-mounted display that could project on top of a cockpit like now in 2020 with the Lightning IIs, Flankers, Fulcrums and arguably other front-line jets like the Super Hornet & Typhoon.  Frankly from the research I've done most of the F-111 variants with the exception of the D likely never got a CCIP.  The fact later models got a PAVE TACK to drop laser-guided bombs was a factor and of course, the F-111 had the Lead Computing Optical Sight that one can't program in SF2.  So this copy-paste job of mine could very well be the next best thing with at least a realistic icon big enough to have some decent risk of circular error.
      Maybe there is better, hence this being an open beta.  I would also like to incorporate terrain following into a bigger avionics upgrade... ;-).
