Litening at night in VR


Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

 

Since 2.5.6 flying in a dark night in VR is a bit of a trouble, since the lights blind me.

 

Lowering Gamma level from 2.2 to 1.5 helped with almost everything, but one, very important thing: using the Litening.

 

Especially on the DDIs, using the Tpod at night is a PITA. The best workaround I found is to use FLIR view in BH mode, but even so, when some white spot comes into view it glows too much.

 

Anyone else is having troubles with this? Has anyone thought of any other kind of solution?

Just tried this. Entirely agree. I'm surprised that adjusting DDI night/day, brightness, contrast makes no difference to the image, only to the symbols - is this correct?

System spec: Intel i7 8700K (3.7 / 4.7 GHz), Asus Prime Z370-A, Zotac GTX 1080 Ti 11GB GDDR5x Blower (1480 / 1582 MHz), 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX Black (2x8GB) DDR4 PC4-25600 3200 MHz, Samsung 960 EVO 250 GB NVME M.2 SSD (system drive), Samsung 970 EVO 1 TB NVME M.2 SSD (games drive), AOC U3477PQU Monitor, Oculus Rift S, Saitek X52 Pro

Just wait for new flir system to be integrated.

 

Aside from the fact that we don't know when it'll be delivered, I honestly don't think that's gonna help, it's a lighting issue, not a targeting pod one.

Yeah, unfortunately DDIs, unlike HUD and AMPCD have only two settings for lighting, that doesn't help either. As for contrast and brightness, not sure if it's how it works in real life, but, yeah, not much effect in here, for this issue.

Our group flew a night mission last evening and the targeting pod screen was so bright even with brightness set to 1 that it was almost unusable. I reduced gamma to 1.5 but still too bright. Any settings used by anyone that helped with this problem. I do not fly with VR but brightness is still a major problem.

Seems to be a general problem with the new lighting system. The A-10C has this TGP-issue as well (https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=265921)

Yeah, I'm afraid till ED will do something about it, there's not much we can do.

 

Scopewizard, as I wrote above, lowering gamma helps, but you can't lower it too much if you play in VR, 1.5 is already dark enough that I now have to turn on cockpit lights even in daylight. On the Hornet, you can use BHOT instead of WHOT, it's less bright, but still annoying when you frame white spots... It's a bit I don't fly in a moonless night, so I haven't tried any new workaround...
