I'm trying to reconstruct my FS2 Open setup on a different computer, and getting the lead sight to work is a major part of that, because I got so used to it with my old setup that playing the game without it just feels wrong. Anyway, I'm having a hard time with it. A few years ago, Axem helped me out by posting a VP that enables the lead sight, so I've been trying to use that, and it makes the sight appear, but the problem is getting rid of the default lead indicator and center reticle. I seem to recall that the way I did it last time was to edit the table so that the lead indicator and center reticle were replaced by a transparent pixel. It seems to work for FS2, but not FSPort. When I try to do it with FSPort, the game crashes when I try to start a mission. I'm not sure what to do here. As far as I know, I'm doing something that used to work. Maybe FS2 Open handles things differently than before? I don't know.
What I'm trying to accomplish is to have a lead sight for both primaries and secondaries, and to make the default gunsight and lead indicator completely invisible. I'd really appreciate some help.
Edit: Well, it looks like I've found a solution. For whatever reason, FSPort just can't tolerate trying to replace the center reticle, but it doesn't mind moving it off the screen, so I changed its offset to -1900 and now it's gone. Replacing it works fine in FS2, though. I wonder why.
