hi,I made some change to the script ,so that everyone can use the old style a10c cockpit .

also fit for those mods like richard HD and so on made for old cockpit .

it is easy to install.

unzip the attachment ,and overwrite the files in

x:\DCS World\Mods\aircraft\A-10C\Cockpit (MAKE SURE TO BACKUP)

enjoy !:thumbup:

updating :

base on the OB:DCS 2.5.5.41962 (14.1.2020),made some change to fix hud font ,and other like mfd uncorrect.

may have a try .

(attachment is new updated)

Works perfectly. I have to say though that the old cockpit didn't look as good as I remembered, even after turning on Ricardos HD textures. Back to the new one and it just has a better look to it, hard to put my finger on why it looks better. The new weathered cockpit will be very exciting to take a look at when it arrives!

The old one has lower resolution textures and 3d mesh, and isnt built for PBR

works fine, thanks. That's the one I was looking for after the recent pit update.

With the Hog I'm doing night missions with ILS appr in IFR, "nice" textures aren't important here anyway.

Why would anyone want to use the old cockpit? :huh:

 

Performance issues with the new cockpit, for instance.

 

 

@hydrawind

 

A thousand thanks man!

 

Works and passes the integrity check in MP. I hope it'll keep working with future updates, since the new cockpit runs like crap on my rig.

+1

 

I'm afraid it will stop working because future updates will probably overwrite "SCRIPTS"

@wernst

 

I think you misunderstood my earlier comment.

 

Yes, we'll obviously need to replace these files after each update, that's not what I meant.

I meant that perhaps it will come a time when these files are no longer compatible.

 

 

@hydrawind

 

I think I've found an issue (not sure if it's due to incorrect installation on my part).

 

I'm getting duplicated data on the MFDs (upper and lower sections only, middle section seems to be "aligned"):

Why would anyone want to use the old cockpit? :huh:

 

I have a few reasons. For context, I am only using a monitor and don't have any head tracking yet. And I'm currently on Steam 2.5.5 stable, soon to ditch that and move to standalone beta. I do like the visuals of the new compared to the old. Here's a quick list of the things i don't care for, though I know some of these are set to be corrected soon.

 

 

  1. Cockpit lighting at night, difficult to find switches, knobs, and buttons.
  2. Left and Right fire pull handles are backwards.
  3. The ejection seat handles block from view the switches on the throttle panel, buttons on the CDU panel, and the left hand side of the Annunciator panel.
  4. HUD scaling, I cannot see the entirety of the HUD as it is now.

It doesn't break the module for me, mostly just minor annoyances.

Build your own headtracking clip, it's cheap, fun, rewarding and works like a charm.

 

I can provide links and instructions if you're interested.

Because crouching in your seat to look at the top of the HUD and peering down/right past the ejection seat handle is a real PITA compared to the old cockpit.

 

 

My back does not thank ED for this update.

(My eyes love it)

This is a huge mod and I'm reluctant to install it. It overlaps with mods of my own. Could I just pick the part that relates to HUD scaling?

sorry,for reply so late, are you using the ob version? I am using the 2.5.5 stable ,and it seem work for me.

I will try it when I have download the ob version

 

Yes, I'm always using the latest OB.

 

Your cockpit script files stopped working when 2.5.6 came out... cockpit becomes invisible.

 

If you can provide some guidance, I can try to help you find a way to make it work again...
