Default [REPORTED]Side Gunner view is intermittent

Hi guys

Since the last official stable update, I have noticed that occasionally when I switch to Huey's side gunner view, the view is either pointing 90° forwards (left gunner) or 90° rearward (right gunner)
Problem exists for both M134 and M60 guns.

It doesn't happen all the time, seems totally random and can't be replicated on purpose. Full DCS game restart "sometimes" fixes it. Once it is bugged, no amount of re-arming or re-joining session will get it right again.

Happening for me in MP. iirc happening in SP as well.

I have Rift-S so I thought initially it was just some VR issue, but then quite a few others in MP servers also have mentioned the same issue and they are using Track-IR or VR. Everyone I ask says they have this issue.

Been flying the the Huey this last couple months and I have not seen this behavior until the last update.

Sorry if this is in the wrong thread.

I've seen a really similar bug lately in the Mi8 on open beta. There's only one side door gunner available in that one, left side, and often when I switch to that seat the view is facing 90 right of what you would expect, in other words looking at the front of the aircraft. Sometimes it is 180 degrees off and looking at the chest of the door gunner.

Never seen it nor heard of it before (have had both Huey and Mi-8 for many years) until just a few days ago in the Gazelle with the minigun, with Track-IR, in SP and latest beta. Sitting on the rtight side, looking straight backwards. Next time I started DSC everything worked fine.
Seems to be a DCS issue and not a particular Huey one.

Thanks guys for confirming the issue.
The gunner FPV does face 180° as well sometimes, I forgot to mention that.

Thanks

Now this is strange!
I attached a track file from a test run to see if I could replicate this. I started in the Gazelle Minigun. There the view was correct for the side gunner. After testing some other stuff (don't mind the mouse cursor) I entered the Huey. Both door gunners had the view turned 90deg BACKWARDS. There I stopped and saved the track.
Just to make sure I got the issue recorded, I replayed the file (not from the debriefing screen). There the view for the Gazelle side gunner was turned BACKWARDS while in game it was fine! In the Huey the view had turned 180deg and now pointed FORWARD while in game they were BACKWARDS!


So since the track didn't replay the same as in game, I don't know if the track file will be of any help. I cross my fingers.

Edit:
After a DCS restart and a second replay, the views was back as in game at recording.

Thanks for trying, however the track replay contains a helicopter unofficial mod so wont replay for me.

Could this be the issue?

If possible just reproduce with the UH-1H thank you

So, disabled all MODs (hopefully) and created a new mission with the Gazelle Minigun, Huey with door gunners and the Mi-8 with door gunner.


Directions given relative helicopter and both Huey gunners.
During recording:
Gazelle: View backwards
Huey: View forward
Mi-8: View forward


First replay (file):
(no restart of DCS for any replay)
Gazelle: View left towards the gunner
Huey: View backwards
Mi-8: View backwards


Second replay:
Gazelle: View forward
Huey: View forward
Mi-8: View forward


Third replay:
Gazelle: View right (normal)

Huey: View forward
Mi-8: View forward


Fourth replay:
As during recording

Fifth replay:
As first replay
....
and so on, Huey and Mi-8 alternating forward/backward, Gazelle "rotating" clockwise 90deg/replay.


Hope you can use the file this time.
