Re: CIGI and instruments, six pack, GPS

I got a bit more detail from one of our CIGI developers: We hide the user model when we are the IG, but 2D panels should still reflect the correct position, orientation, and velocities based on the host’s ownship packets. Using a custom ISimObject on the IG to drive panels should also be possible. T...

Re: CIGI and instruments, six pack, GPS

Gauges typically read from the same sim vars you would be overriding via external control, so many of them would likely work for basic position and orientation. We flag DIS/CIGI entities for external control to prevent the internal simulation from fighting with external values. Using the ISimObject ...

Re: Varjo XR-1, no video passthrough, no portals, no controller visible

I think I addressed these on this other thread. Let's keep the discussion going over there. Sorry we missed this one when it was first posted.

Re: P3D5 HF2 issues with VR

I wanted to reply to all 4 issues posted: 1) We'll look into this. 2) This is a known issue which we hope to resolve but it's tricky because it happens as a side-effect of a feature that's working as designed. It relates to how the engine caches resources internally. Render target caching and reuse ...

Re: P3D5 HF2 issues with VR

Thanks for the continued reports. We are able to reproduce the GPU memory leak with SteamVR and are looking into it. The VR emulator interface seems to be leak free so that should help narrow things down.

Re: Varjo XR-1

Also if you didn't want your mask visible on screen, you could actually set the write mask to 8 so that only the alpha writes. I believe the XR-1 currently requires pre-multiplied alpha in the output, though, so a black mask is probably your best bet.

Re: Varjo XR-1

Portals save out to an XML file, so if you have a Vive, Vive Pro, or Index, you could use to create them, that might be the quickest way to create your mask using portals. You can name the portal sets and save them, using the VR settings UI. You can enter portal data in manually in the UI, but that'...

First off, please grab HotFix 2 as there are some VR improvements in there. Have you trying using the cockpit model mask post process? It's a quick way to test out XR-1 camera. http://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv5/prepar3d/virtual_reality/virtual_reality.html#HMD%20Specific%20Settings Creating portals with...

Re: Head Tracking

We changed the behavior of the pan control event. There is a "Look reset" event which can reset the pan back to center. In most use cases this makes cameras a bit easier to control with joysticks and game pads. We'll look into potentially bringing back the old behavior as an option or as a new event...

Re: V5 CTD on View Change (AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT)

Hello All, Working together with AMD, we have tracked down the cause of the view-change crash. We were able to resolve the issue with changes to our code, so the fix will be included in the next hot-fix release and will not require an updated driver. AMD engineers have confirmed that our latest hot-...

Re: Black lines in each each during VR simulation (Pimax 5k+)

We're going to add an option to disable the Hidden Area Mesh in the next v5 release. In the mean time, I believe that pimax has a setting to disable the SteamVR Hidden Area Mesh. I believe they call it "Hidden Area Mask". Let us know if that works.

There are also keyboard shortcuts for minimize/maximize state ( Win + Down, Win + Up ) that might be worth trying out:
