PCA/HUD updates

Recommended Posts

Actually, I should have said “save parameters on PCA”.

Once it’s set on PPA it’s done, it doesn’t change.

On PCA you can choose ranging solution (TAS/ RS) rockets options (INT/ EXT) and stuff like that.

 

I posted several times a video of Mirage 2000N at Red Flag.

There is a footage though the HUD, you can see that he dives on target from medium altitude in NAV mode, go attack mode, then switch master arm on just before target designation and pull up for release.

That’s a matter of priority. There isn’t a magical wand to fix it all at once :smilewink:

Let’s enjoy the good news.

 

Last time I checked code wasn't written with a magic wand.

 

I believe those changes should be prioritzed, that's the whole point.

 

To each their own. I voiced my opinion and I'm not trying to hijack the thread. Carry on.

What MAV search means/do?

 

It uses the Magic II as an IRST. Mica IR does the same for Mirage 2000-5 and Rafale.

Will MAV Search be implemented ?

Eventually

Will this PCA/HUD update include HUD symbology update ? I'm thinking Triangle for a Radar+Magic lock on a target

 

Also PD and RD HUD indicators, but i guess those will be added later on when modes will be functional

I've recently bought the M2000 and the Red Flag campaign. Havn't spent time on them, yet.

 

Do these changes affect the campaigns and training missions for the Mirage?

Will the manual be updated with the changes in how things work?

Quick question (possible bug).

If 530 is selected and the hotas switch is in PCA, pressing RP on the PCA switches the VTH (only, VTB doesn't have the circle) to POL mode. In this case also, the upper line of the PCA has different symbology than that activated with the respective PCA button.

Edit - but if CAN or MAG is selected, weapons can be fired. So it seems than a pseudo POL indication on the VTH.

Yes, please update the manual with the new features (also applies to the Harrier). I'm glad to see that both modules are going on step by step! Keep it up.

what is the PIP Hotas? Which button does activate the AG Mode for bomb dropping?

Zeus explained it in the original post of this thread:

5. Selecting an AG weapon will NOT set the HUD and aircraft systems to AG ATTACK mode. Only the PCA will enter into AG mode.

6. To set the HUD, actually the entire aircraft systems, into AG ATTACK mode the pilot must click the PIP HOTAS switch forward (it is the same switch that sets the Special Modes when in AA mode).

NOTE: An AG weapon must be selected for the aircraft to enter AG ATTACK mode, otherwise AA Special modes will be invoked.

7. With the HUD/Aircraft in AG ATTACK mode, clicking the PIP HOTAS switch back, will save the AG weapon selection and release parameters, return the HUD/aircraft to NAV mode. The PCA will also enter NAV mode. The AG weapon remains selected.

impossible to understand PCA behavior...

Sometimes you can select APP, sometimes you cannot. Same thing for the S530 and the tank to drop....

 

I can toggle APP mode on/ off without problem.

Use left mouse click.

Sam to select weapons: left mouse click. There is currently a bug, you have to use "PCA select" command to unselect weapons others than MAG/ CAN.

So you must use it to unselect 530 while you should exit by clicking it on PCA (or use keyboard short cut/ direct X command).

I have strange bug now If I click Magic Select it is now drop Pilot helmet visor with message saying visor is already changing. There is no way to raise helmet visor after that. Visor toggle control do nothing.

 

Same problem here, I don’t get what’s happening.

Can’t drop the tank here either as I can’t select it in the PCA.

On PCA use left click to select a weapon/ function. Just checked with keyboard fix, it does work.

In the control menu it is called, HOTAS category, it's called "Special Modes AFT/ FWD".

 

For AA, nothing has changed.

 

For AG:

- select weapon on PCA (left click with mouse as I write)

System stays in NAV mode, but PCA top lines now displays AG settings. From there, you can:

- Special Modes AFT: return to NAV, AG weapon stays selected on PCA.

Or

- Special Modes FWD: go into Attack mode (HUD will display attack mode, radar will go TAS if selected).

 

From memory mode you can directly go into attack mode without having to touch the PCA.

But there is a small bug currently: TAS doesn't remain selected when you go from "memory mode" to "attack mode".

 

Already reported.

 

Once fixed, you will be able to make PPA and PCA settings before take off, or just after, and then you will just have to go attack mode and master arm on on target area.
