Small request to anyone that will work on Blackshark cockpit in the future - I have made a change in eject event, so shortcut should be pressed twice to leave cockpit. It works well on Ka-52, but very unclear on Ka-50 because there is no pilot in cockpit. I understand that adding pilot with animation is a complicated task, but maybe it will be enough to add large red handle in front of camera, so player will understand what is going on.
Posted image and noticed that handle in the right place, but camera inside EES in wrong position, should be moved backwards about 20cm

I just checked the last scene files that I worked on, and the ejection handle is in the right place, although this is static.

What was the name of the ejection handle in the code? I can make the handle have the same reference as a separate object.

Yeah that's true - handle in correct position, noticed that after making a post.
Problem in the eject camera - it's placed into cockpit scene as camera with name VIEW_STATIC_PILOT_EJECT (also VIEW_STATIC_WSO_EJECT exists but I guess it's not used). so only thing is required - move it back about 0.2-0.3m or so, then eject handle and probably control stick will appear on ALT+E press.

All the cameras in that scene are messed up. I think the cockpit was based on the Hokum, which is why there's references to two pilots, which have never been removed.

I'll see if I can get the camera in the right position.

I've changed the camera position, so it's now showing the back of the stick and the eject handles. Is this better?

I finally tracked down my todo list for this cockpit, buried in the 43 page thread below...

https://SimHQ.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4479280/re-ka-50-aio-reloaded#Post4479280

I'm just getting back up to speed on where I was when I last worked on EECH, and plan to pick one thing to work on. So I'll try and finish off some of the other things for the KA50. It might not be soon, so shouldn't hold up the 1.16.1 release that thealx is putting together.

I'll post any future updates in this thread, as that other one is getting a bit big.

Yeah, I noticed. Some of the needles need balanced. Engine ones are the same.

p.s. I moved your post into this thread.

please notice you have some warnings during compilation

also - you have added archive as eech.online mod, but to make it compatible with installer, archive should contain "/cohokum" folder as it will be unpacked into game folder as-is. so in your archive, root folder is "EECH_All_Mods-1.16-KA-50-Cockpit_All_Current_mods" which should be removed

pushed my code changes, not very finished but hope will not cause crashes.

Can you show me which lamps work for you? Also, see the first post where I mention the hand is missing and is work in progress.

I might just remove my exe and say it needs latest 1.16.1 which you have built. I don't get compile issues with the debug build, only cmake.

That's weird, I'm not sure how that happened as I created a new archive with just cohokum. I'll update it and the links.

EDIT: Fixed the archive now, and removed the exe from it.

I used the move view position keys to go on a search for the pilots arm, and he appears to have swallowed it biggrin

I'm not sure why that's happened.

When you say the whole warning lamp panel worked on thealx exe, how did you test it, as the lamps only light in certain situations. Like left/right engine overspeed, fire, max G or max IAS.?

Do you mean the lamps are on, like in the attached screenshot taken with the thealx exe? If so, this isn't working, this is them all being displayed as textured objects in the scene as the code to turn them on/off isn't there. When I added the code, they should be off, unless the right condition for them to be on exists.

The only lamps I would expect to see when starting up, is the rotor rpm, gear lamps, and weapons.
