MB-339A/PAN by Frecce Tricolori Virtuali (NEW VERSION)


Recommended Posts

It is not just you concerning MB-339 and Black Screen with Cockpit View.

To my surprise, a friend had a fresh Windows 10 and DCS 2.5.5 install with an OLDER AMD Radeon 6950 graphics card that I gave him. No other Windows programs installed.

The only 2 DCS modules installed were the Free A-4E Skyhawk and MB-339PAN.

NO TRACK IR/NOIR installed.

NO other DCS Modules installed except for what comes free with the DCS 2.5.5 download.

I have many paid modules and the A-4E and MB-339 and do not have the Black Screen in Cockpit view.

As a partial workaround for my friend, I reset the default F1 Cockpit View or SnapView.

I Can't remember what I did exactly, but it had something to do with snap views /default views.

Do a forum search or start with this:

Good luck; let me know if you have any other new information.

 

Many thanks for the suggestion, YSIAD_RIP!!! I managed to get the black screen to disappear after adjusting the Camera View Up a few times - it reappeared when I looked 'up' a few degrees but was able to get that to go away as well with a couple more Camera View Up adjustments! Looking forward to flying this beast when I get some spare time! Very kind of you to assist!!

 

I tested it all briefly with my new TrackIR 5 (with the ProClip) but the game kept freezing/crashing (which is the first time this has happened in the month of play since I got the TrackIR - it works great on the A4, F18, Su25, Su33 and P51 though so am very happy with it!). I will attempt to fly without it and see if that helps - and I'll attempt to troubleshoot by using settings from other aircraft.

 

I'll let you know how the flight goes without the TrackIR when I can.

 

Again, many thanks! I really do appreciate it!

Hello everybody, DCS 2.7 is finally out and as you may have seen, the update broke several avionics animations of the MB-339.   These days we have received several messages from the commun

Its really sad. It's still alive in one of my SSD's. One of the best -or the best- mods ever created for DCS. I'll miss the MB-339 on 2.7.

The sooner the Official MB-339 is available on the ED Store the better.   I do not want to fly the MB-339 in that Other sim.. I want it in DCS  lol. 

I am working on a skin for the Virtual Snowbirds and nearing completion. However, I've run in to a problem. Many of the dds diffuse files are broken in the install package and or the skins provided. I've managed to find copies in the various folders that work but I cannot get the

 

MB33_HGU55.dds MB339_AMI-K2B.dds and MB339_pilot_AMI-T85

 

There may be others that I need but these are the ones I've identified. I'm an experienced skinner and have not run into this problem with DDS files before. They appear to work in game. Using the nvidia plugin. I have created skins for almost every aircraft (AI and flyable) and never had this problem before.

 

Thanks for any help!

They aren't broken, simply they are compressed in a format that the old Nvidia Plugin can't handle: BC-7.

You can read and work with them using this plugin for PS: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-texture-works-plugin

Will give it a go. I have only recently (Jan) moved to Windows and started using he nvidia plugin instead of the inel. Hope this solves it.

Works. Of course. LOL I should have just used the Intel one. Funny how it hasn't been a problem and I've been working on the 18, 14, and the 16.

 

Anyway, thanks for the help!

We have used BC-7 to preserve quality and crispness (and have exactly the same disk footprint of DXT-5). I don't know why official modules still use a format surclassed like DXT-5 when the engine is able to handle a better one...:music_whistling:

BTW, really nice skin...ah ah Snowbirds… I know Canadians are dreaming of M-345 Snowbirds Team;)

There is a team using your aircraft now. Friends of a friend of mine.

 

Is there a way to put bort numbers on the tail? I'm not seeing it in any of the description files.

 

Thanks! I haven't flown this yet but it's exactly what we need. An actual trainer.

We don't used bort, but the main texture have decal layer enabled.

Make a 4K trasparent tga (you can compress RLE to save a lot of disk space) and put this line in description.lua

 

{"main", DECAL,"*name_of_your_decal*", false},

Thank you very much for the help. She's all but done now. Just have to complete the decals for SB 3 -9 later and then I'll put it up.

Thank you both for the encouragement.

 

 

The skin is up in the user file section. https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3308365/

 

I was also asked to make a skin for the Golden Centennaires so that is in progress now.

So am I the only one with a floating wing pylon in 2.6?

 

Like one is attached, the other is ~20 feet above the plane? All good pre-patch

 

If you're speaking of wingtips and you are using our latest 2.0.1 this behaviour should not occur, since the tip models are inside the same edm of the aicraft governed by visibility argument: in one word they are visible in the right place, or they are not visible at all

Put a screenshot here

Hi Ripcord, I've analysed the crashlog: this is a crash of your graphic card during rendering of terrain, not directly correlated to MB-339.

Thanks for the info, It's odd because I absolutely get no other crashes other than when I try to use the MB-339 module. It seems to work the first time and then when I go to load up a subsequent mission it will crash. I will reload the GPU drivers clean and if it continues then I will just avoid using the 339 until later versions

The main texture of the 339, along its normal map and roughmet, are 8K in resolution: this maybe a reason why it could stress a bit your gpu. Moreover this can be worst in multiplayer environment, since still we don't implemented LODs for the model.

I also have a lot of crashes in open beta, but it's another history because they aren't related to d3d11.dll.

Even if you have a powerful RTX2080ti, I would suggest to lowering graphics settings to see if crash point is reached.

Make sure the aircraft you want to use is set as "Player".
