Default Night Harrier OP lighting

Hello everyone,

Does anyone have any tips for flying the Harrier at night in VR? I find that the lighting from the HUD and MPCDs is so bright that it kills my night vision, and it seems that the day and night modes for the HUD and MPCDs don't make much of a difference. Am I missing something?

Thank you!

You’re not missing anything. Lighting brightness settings are somehow not yet implemented for a night attack jet.

The coders will add a slider to the special options tab so you can choose how bright it is.

also how about actually making the MFD buttons work for this, so in mission as the light levels change, not in special, thats pointless when already flying.

Have raised a whole issue about this and the FLIR in bug section 3 days after 2.5.6 came out. You will note there was a similar issue with the JF17, corrected on the next patch.

Whilst were talking about issues and someone from Razbam has actually responded any news on the 2 year wait for the TDC slew to work properly re axis binds?

Why add a slider when there are already controls in the cockpit that can control brightness of the various displays? Why not just make those functional instead?

That makes exactly ZERO sense.
A slider in the options for MFD brightness? Really? That's ridiculous.

Because its no doubt easier.

Hence why i raised it re MFD buttons not a slider you'd think after 2 years they would have the MFD brightness coded, you know being a basic requirement to use the actual jet. The EHSD is totally screwed at night now also and low light cannot be used re map, was one of the best in DCS now the worst.

As for the FLIR on Hud - well that is blinding in VR and totally unusable.

But to even mention a slider just show's how out of touch they are - question do you actually fly your own modules anymore in a competitive multiplayer environment in all weather / times of day - clearly not.

Unfortunately my patience has run out with Razbam this year with pathetic time frame's for a response or just ignoring completely. They are way behind other dev teams in terms of customer feedback and communication, it actually feel's like the Razbam forum is pointless - my only wish is that Deka / Heatblur had been given the F15. Cannot buy into any more Razbam products until they sort out there customer relationship and show a willingness to sort out basic but vital issues.

Stop working on pilot bodies, Mig 23 and Falklands and get the Harrier basic's use sorted. Eye candy and other functionality can wait. A night attack harrier that cannot be used at night just about say's it all really.

Poor performance from Razbam has to be said which is a shame as the Harrier has the potential to be one of the best modules.
