High fps but too dark?
You probably have already "better hardware" and sure did apply your own "my settings", isn't it?
Still some issues? Why? Hmm . . .

My plan for 2020:
I'll have to buy "better hardware" and will apply "ac5 settings" to run the new cockpit update without issues.
But what if . . .?

Happy New Year to all Hog and DCS pilots.
Well, that's it.. the only issue I can not correct is the dark cockpit. All other planes are quite OK.
Happy new year to you...

Buying better hardware just to run a poorly optimized cockpit is misguided at best.

Tomcat has a new and very detailed cockpit, yet runs as it should on older hardware, so it's not a hardware problem (or shouldn't be).

Also, your settings are way too high for people running older hardware (resolution is too high, visib range is too high, shadows are too high, preload radius is set to max, etc.)



@Everyone having issues with the new cockpit

Hydrawind was kind enough to modify and share the old cockpit script files.

https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=260085

All you need to do is place the contents of the rar file inside x:\DCS World\Mods\aircraft\A-10C\Cockpit and replace all required files (make a backup first, just in case)


I've tested it and works (also passes the integrity check in MP), I'm back on the old cockpit, enjoying proper performance (I couldn't care less about the slightly reduced texture quality )

impressive texture specs . . .

. . . but stuttering
. . . nightly cockpit almost not usable because controls are barely visible

spoiling the fun of it.

I haven't experienced any stuttering or performance issues on my end.

I hadn't any issues with the Hog before the upgrade.
All other complex (PFM) modules like Hornet, Viper etc. are still running smoothly and well.

Like I said, I couldn't care less, the old cockpit is good enough

Also, tomcat cockpit probably has a higher poly count and way better textures as well, yet runs smoothly.
