How do I get Simconnect Message Window to Display in VR?

I have tried all the suggestions from Kayla on this forum of placing it in the upper left corner etc... and nothing works.

I have been able to display the ATC window in VR and even had added the config modifications to custom size and place that window and many others in VR successfully.

However I cannot get the Simconnect Message Window to diplay in VR. I use Radar Contact and need to see the Simconnect Message Window that displays fine in 2D.

Please Advise
Joe

Hello,

Is the Radar Contact you are using something you have developed, or possibly a 3rd party add-on?

Scaleform windows should 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:

Radar Contact is a long standing widely used third party app that provides much better ATC. It’s interface uses the Simconnect message window. Is there something in particular I should investigate to change regarding these windows to make it work?

Hey Joe,

Still looking for a solution? If this is so, I might have something which I'm testing and looking good. Let me know if you have a solution for our common problem; else I'll tell you about my solution.

Best!
