And another question. I can see that in some old videos the windshield wiper is a very useful thing however in 1.16 while I am flying in the rain the windshield is clean all the time so I do not have to use the wiper at all. Ok this sounds a bit anal but it would be nice to know if in the latest build this feature still works or not.

Cheers

Yeah, Apache and Black Shark don't have any rain marks on the windscreen/windshield. Wondering how hard would it be to fix it. If someone could at least point me to the right direction I could spend some time to do some fiddling biggrin Got too much time on my hands

To make it even more interesting the cockpit on 1.15.2 seems to have this feature working. Just going through some older versions

Sounds like a challenge wink Will see if I can learn it and dip into the code but don't hold your breath. What's wrong with the nvg in apache then? Is it just objects missing from it?

in other helos trees hangars and other objects in nvg is white, visible. In apache all objects is very dark .
If you use Javelin mod of course. Javelin mod has realistic flight model, and thealx cockpit lighting .http://SimHQ.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4422688/eech-test-build-hover-mods#Post4422688

Weird, everything seems to be fine. Are you able to take some screenshot to compare before and after the mod? Thanks

Ok smile
Normal view from apache cockpit pic 1
the same view in nvgpic 2( no visible trees)
BUT when you enable nvg and free view outside helicopter- trees looks as should be (pic 3) white and visible.


I see now in other helos also not visible trees, so is general bug.

Ok, found a few things.

NVG - it appears that even on version 1.15.2 some trees disappear after the night vision mode is switched on but it would be interesting to see from which version it started happening. Might have to dig some old crap out

WINDSHIELD DIRT - working fine under 1.15.2 but does not work on 1.16. I have made a little test and launched 1.15.2 but by using 1.16 cohokum.exe. Funny enough the game started and I was able to fly so all good but the windscreen dirt disappeared so it appears that something withing the acutal cohokum.exe is different. I have replaced folders from 1.16/1.15.2 and that made no difference at all so again, I am pretty sure that some code in 1.16 cohokum.exe is missing or incorrectly adjusted. Sorry, I am not a coder (more like a tester at the moment ha ha) but though that I can help "a bit" by pointing this out.

The game is written in C, not C++. Just in case you're wanting to get into the coding side
