Hello Everyone! I hate for my very first post on the forum to be a call for help.

I followed the steps to install the upgrade mods and hooks and, as far as I can tell, they were implemented correctly and the game launched fine. I was able to go into Simulator and shoot some tie fighters.

After i went and looked at getting VR setup, I found that the game would launch the splash window, and starting the game seems to merely close that splash and nothing happens again. I've noticed that I'm missing Cockpitview.cfg and a .dll file but they're not provided in the downloaded zip files? All this being said, it's very difficult to figure out when the game wont even launch. I'm going to attach a screenshot of my XWA folder, installed via steam, in case that helps any.

If possible I would really appreciate if someone who wants to help could contact me on discord:

Hey no worries! Feel free to ask questions.

It looks like you're missing some key files, like Hook_CockpitLook.dll (as you mentioned). I suggest you follow the steps here:

You can find the VR mod and its latest beta patch in the Downloads section. Look for a link called "Effects by Blue Max's Version 1.1.4".
