JHMCS - How to change its onscreen position ?

Recommended Posts

I use Track-IR and I find that the center of the JHMCS is about 5° below the center point I'm looking at.

 

Is-it possible to change it's onscreen position ?

Every user can adjust defulat view for his needs. Default view in DCS is configured for a wide range of users and can be not good for some.

But the default view should place the JHMCS at least within the HUD area,otherwise the JHMCS will display at default view!that shouldn't happen at default view,right?....

Cofcorpse,

 

If it's tilted down a several degrees, is they a way, in a lua file to tilt it back up of that few degrees ?

as convenient as the hud is there is a reason why the instrument panel exists

the notion that the hud should somehow be the center of focus is your own contrivance

 

@OP here's a guide to setting up default view

I have the same problem and the solutions provided so far are not really satisfying. They are rather workarounds, but all of them come at a price.

I have deleted all my default views and ran a dcs repair. I would expect at least the default view configuration to be in a correct position. But it definetly is not. It feels like I have to point my chin on enemy airplanes in order to target them.

 

All threads about this topic state either that it is correct as it is, or that it is a user problem.

I am also pretty sure that there is a possibility of boresighting and calibrating the JHMCS in the real plane.

 

What I am interested about: Is the current implementation really designed as intended or is a KA50 like vertical adjustment planned for the Hornet?

 

By the way: Comments about the importance of the HUD do not help at all. It is not about which instrument is more important. But if you do have to adjust your view, you wont be able to see big parts of your instruments or wont be able to look out of your cockpit in the default setup. So please if you do want to contribute something, let it be something usefull.

if you look 5 degrees down before synching your tir (in other words matching your head position with the in-game head position) you'll find the hmd display ends up at eye level.

 

it's important to understand that you should be looking at your instrument panel as that's the way your initial view is set up

Well people asked for the VR option, so would it be too much to ask for a offset view for the HMD for us second rank TrackIR users?

I too would like an option to adjust JHMCS offset. Doesnt feel comfortable for me at most angles. I also wish it was more zoomed in by default (aka bigger circle) I seem to have to zoom in to really read any of the tapes yet doing that im then too close to everything else in the cockpit.

What bothers me is the JHmCS not masking when going below the hud...

I'm still hoping for some type of adjustment/alignment option.

 

My issue is in VR and is due to the headset resting on my face slightly tilted up (apparently) such that when I look straight forward at the horizon the JHMCS appears 10 degrees too high.

 

I can fiddle with the position on the headset to correct this, but it doesn't sit well and I lose the "sweet spot".
