By the end of the year, assuming it's addressed in the impending update that was flagged a few weeks back.

Will this include the inability to see if some of the buttons are pressed (ie. Ground Moving Target) ?

I can confirm. Brand new textures for the cockpit are planned, it's just a matter of time.

For instance: why loosing time to fix an old texture when you plan to replace it? Nevertheless, in the meantime there are some users mods that partially avoid the problem (you can find them in the downolad section).

Spent some time in Photoshop with the cockpit's textures and did a fix for this. Decreased the intensity of the OFF version of the light and increased the intensity of the ON version of the light. While I was at it, I joined these textures with the ones I did earlier to fix the HUD's and windows' opaquiness, increasing visibility. All done in the Mods folder. This should be a fix until the official one comes out... Feel free to give feedback.

I think maybe the mythical 'helicopter sale' is a good excuse to give the helicopter a little bit of attention.

Just tested it. Thanks for your work, even if it does not help me (especially on nighttime), it could be useful on daylight (but i'm used to default inverted lights now, LOL !

Hey man, thanks for your reply... thanks to you I've just tested it at night (because I honestly don't remember the last time I flew DCS at night, specially the Ka-50).

I had tested it before though during day time using gamma 1.0, 1.5 and 2.2. During day time with gamma at 2.2 and 1.5, the button lights are very bright and visible here, even brighter than in the old DCS 1.5 (I use gamma at the default 2.2). For the buttons at the overhead panel (data-link), though, they are less bright but still visible. With gamma at 1.0 (minimum possible) all button lights are less bright, but still visible. At night they also appear less bright but still visible.

I'll see if I can find a way to enhance the brightness at night and at low gamma values...

Just downloaded your fix, am about to do some day/night testing in VR (oculus).

OK; here's my findings.

In Caucasus day and Nevada day it makes the buttons usable again. That is a good thing. At night it doesn't do much as the buttons do not light up and there's not enough contrast to easily see which one is on.

I did not really like what you did to the windows. They are too clean now, making it seem almost like they aren't there. But that's just my opinion.

I also completely and utterly forgot how to fly the Kamov. I wallowed around like a drunken bumblebee, unable to target or fire. Back to school I go!
