Frenchy's NVG mod for DCS 1.5.x and 2.x


Recommended Posts

Hi

 

 

 

I've just installed this mod and I really like the ability to look under the NVG goggles at the instruments in VR. The only issue is that the NVG part of the screen is a vertical oval shape rather than round which makes it a little harder on the eyes.

 

 

I'm using an Index.

 

 

 

Any thoughts on how to make the goggle view round?

 

 

Cheers!

From the first post:

 

Eye Size and position:

EYE_CENTER = sets center point of NVG effect on screen as percentage of X and Y starting at bottom left corner. eg (0.5f, 0.655f) = 50% across and 65.5% up.
[b][u]EYE_SIZE = Sets X and Y diameter of NVG as percentage of screen size. eg (0.47f, 0.75f) = 47% of width of screen and 75% of screen height. Since most monitors aren’t square the y value will have to be larger than the x value to make a perfect circle; the ratio between the two numbers will be the same as your monitor aspect ratio[/u][/b]

Looks like this great mod broke with last update. Hope it can be fixed.

Thanks Fox. Will revisit it.

 

 

UPDATE: Fixed; issue was conflict with Mustang's Flat Shadow mod.

 

 

Thanks again.

hi! can anyone to explain step by step how set up this mod? i search on youtube and all keep it like goverment secret..i dont know how to they do it..can anyone hepl me? thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english..

Here's Tecca NVG mod I use for trackir, drop in DCS main folder or use OVGME. Readme included. For VR I don't know.

 

Use this to change NVG oval to your liking.

"Change the values of 0.99f, 0.85f to whatever you like,

where 099f=X=with & 0.85f=Y= hight of the NVG oval."

/Thank you Tecca, great job:thumbup:

I could never work out how to get the ovals to be round. Mostly, using it, I felt like I was tripping my tits off.

Hi Tacca,

 

thanks for the explanation! Now that I know what the file is for I ran some tests and it seems nothing was changed in DCS.

 

With the mod's standard oval NVG and without the laserbeam.hlsl the beam doesn't quite reach the edge of the NVG to the sides (pics 1+2) and reaches over the NVG to the bottom (pic 3), maybe still expecting the round shape of the unmodded NVG.

 

This effect is fixed by your laserbeam.hlsl (4+5) but leads to weird effects (6).

 

Hopefully, you can find a fix for that down the line!

 

In all cases I can see the laser spot on the target outside the NVG (when the NVG is on) but that is the same in stock DCS, too.

 

Hey Tacca,

 

Thanks for the mod!  It makes NVGs actually usable in VR!

 

I had the same red/white flashing issue with the default mod, and deleting the laserbeam.hlsl fixed it, but like the above post, removed the masking of the red laser beam outside of the NVGs FOV.  Last post I saw about it seemed like you were working the issue some time ago... any progress?

I just recently had this red/white flashing thing in VR.  I have used this mod for ages and it have been working perfect but, today i got that red/white flashing thing and laserbeam.hlsl is breaking the integrity check.  How can it just out of nothing stop working?

 

Any advice on what to do here?

Hello everyone
I used this mod to directly overwrite the files in the game directory and can be used, but it has not been used since the update last year. Now, I want to reuse it. I use OvGME but cannot activate it. Can anyone teach me? Or whether there is video teaching now ?

This entire thread is an abortion.  I'll bet nobody knows what's going on here.  If this gadget still operates ..the OP should completely revamp and simplify this.
