Here's another one specially for the guys working on F4gauge :) If you read this Eric, i am not sure if the cause is your application or the shared memory, I just realized this one and will need to further study it
One thing is for sure, the NOZ gauges from Falcon gauges is giving the opposite value as the 2D and 3D cockpit of OF:

#Invalid YouTube Link#

Normally during SEC operation, the nozzle closes. Which is what happen in falcon (external view) and the NOZ gage in the 2D and 3D pit
But as you see in the abaove video, the Falcon gauge is telling me the Nozzle is opening and is still variable throughout SEC operations which shouldn't be the case

More on this later if I can

Because of the remarkable achievement of 100,000 views and all the effort and contributions Olivier has made to the VP and Falcon community, I have made his pit progress thread a sticky.

Congrats and well done Olivier.

Gosh, with 100K+ views on this thread, you'd think we could all start spelling Olivier's name correctly by now?  :)

Your Falcon Gauge videos look great  :beer:

Eric and I had problems with the NOZ data from the flightdata.h. It is on the list to fix in the next update. I hope we find the time first quarter of 2008.

To fight my frustration back with my TFT problems, I decided to actually build something easy
So I installed the canopy jettison handle resin copy made by Dunk above the FUEL panel.
It's only eye candy, but it's a nice touch. I had to lower all the panels and install a specific plate to mount the support.
The handle comes in yellow resin and the black was airbrushed  on the handle. I also weathered the handle as I would do wiuth any aircraft model. Here is was easy since the molding process kept the mark of the paint chipping :)

I also needed a place to connect the headphones in the cockpit, preferably on the left console as the wires are on the left side. So I decided to embed the 2 extension cords for the mike and the headphones.
I will route the wires so they don't interefere with the panels & knobs.
A good idea is also to have a master volume control somewhere in the cockpit (Audio panel) :)

While working in this area I decided to replace the EPU guard that was a single action to a more realist double action guard.


After that I took a long flight without instrument displayed on any TFT. I realized how fast you get accustomed to having the instruments functionnal and how bad you miss them when flying the 3Dpit with the TIR  :-P
At least the flight was good and I'm pretty motivated again. End of this week I will have instruments again, even if that means connecting a second computer to make it work  :fight:

Here's a new item installed: Dunk's ALT GEAR
this one is functionnal (except for the white button) but it was a simple plug and play for me as Dunk made all the worf for me. Thanks Dunk.



If I can do a small comment, the holes don't match the LEFT AUX. I could only put one screw in there.

Olivier,
Turn the base around so that the larger hump is away from the CMDS Panel.
Then I believe that screw will go in.
If not Blame Mike he gave me the stencil. :whistle:

I love the F-16 Fighting Falcon, the Ferrari F1 of fighter jets.

I love the Viper - a perfect melding of man and machine.

Lol Dunk; doesn't work
As you imagined I tried - but it's a no go. The distance between the screws is longer on the AUX frame than what it is with the resin.
Probably a model difference betrween AUX for the F-16A & other models
This really won't be a problem to fix :)

Ray, you're right - it's all those details that make a cockpit authentic - this is the part I prefer, like an plastic model - the finishing part
