Default DCS SA342 The cockpit dashboard is too dark and the appearance is too dark. O

DCS SA342 The cockpit dashboard is too dark and the appearance is seems too dark . Other DCS models are normal {Using the RX 570 graphics card}
DCS WORLD is the latest version, and the RX570 graphics driver is also the latest. I can't understand why all DCS MODEL cockpit cockpit dashboards are normal, only SA342 TOO DARK

You can turn on the uv light at the bottom right of the pannel. It helps a lot.

There is a small knob to turn at the bottom right of the main panel to set the light on. Sorry I cannot send a picture right now.

LIKE THIS SCREENSHOT ,I turn the uv light

The tone in the cockpit is not correct, too dark, the same problem exists, this seems to be the core problem of the program or the compatibility of the graphics card.

Firstly, I agree that the cockpit is extremely dark.


However, photographs of a real Gazelle cockpit do seem to suggest that everything is black. Sure, you can see it, but it IS black. Example: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...3718876%29.jpg


So, in that sense, the DCS module is accurate... even if that makes it difficult to use. The thing is that we do not have the same dynamic range on our screens as we get in real life, so it does make things a bit awkward. Perhaps some fine tuning could be applied, to make it better match the photographs?

Or, as an alternative suggestion, perhaps the little flood lamp in the ceiling could be pointed up a bit, so we could turn up that light and help reduce the abyssal darkness of the main console?





However, that said, in the meantime, make sure you have all your internal lights turned up. What I use is:

1. Turn on the instrument/console back lighting. These also have adjustable brightness.

2. Turn up the UV light brightness to maximum (I find this the most useful and actually have a key bound for it).

3. Turn on the roof flood lamp. This points down into the centre console area and helps illuminate that area a bit. It also provides some general glow.

4. And make sure you are using the white (not red) filter on it.

Attached are some screenshots to help you find these.

I learned that when the French designed this helicopter, the cockpit used black non-reflective material. If the light is not turned on, it is very dark.
I do it according to your method. It does improve the darkness.
But the roof flood lamp is still looking for how to open it or have a shortcut key
