Thumbs up Turning Instrument 'help' labels on/off

Hi All,
Does anyone know how to turn the instrument 'help' labels off in multiplayer?

When the mouse or VR pointer is held over a switch or dial in the cockpit, a labels appears.

Apart from being annoying in-game, the label blinds you if you are using night vision goggles.

In the controls options page, there are only four 'label' options listed, none of these work on the instrument labels:

Aircraft Labels LShift+F2,
All Labels LShift+F10,
Missile Labels LShift+F6 and
Vehicle/Ship LShift+F9

Pushing these make no difference to the labels coming up in the cockpit during multiplayer.

Surely there must be a way to turn these off when playing multiplayer!?

Any help greatly appreciated!!

Yeah I have tried this. I have 'tooltips' turned off when in single player mode.

In multiplayer mode the 'gameplay' tab is not visible, so cannot change it


Not sure how anyone does a night mission with NVG active if these labels are always on. Very frustrating.

Sorry - I overlooked the multiplayer. In the mission editor there is an option to disable tooltips. So if you are playing on someone elses server or host - they may have to possible force disable tooltips for the mission. I don't know if this works correctly for clients. Setting this option does write to the mission file.

Code:
 ["forcedOptions"] = 
    {
        ["padlock"] = false,
        ["externalViews"] = false,
        ["permitCrash"] = false,
        ["easyCommunication"] = false,
        ["tips"] = false,
    }, -- end of ["forcedOptions"]

Yes I think you have got it... It must be up to the host to set the parameters. Thanks for this!
