    Orbiter 2016 a better bet for simpit?

    The Orb::Connect add-on plus add-ons by Kamaz and others made it eminently doable to drive LEDs and inputs from switches. The XR- vessels have an interface that allows for really detailed vessel control. Master/Slave should enable you to drive external views, although I never personally got...

    Question vMC2 or Orb:connect Question

    Yes, Orb:Connect is stalled but not forgotten (and vMC never really worked with it). My wife passed away this time last year, and I haven't been dedicating much time to 'hobbies' since then. The O:C v2.0 is updated for Orbiter2010, albeit with an earlier API, and I will try to get back into the...

    Project XR3 Phoenix (WIP)

    Looks like there's room for 1-3-1 or even 2-2-2 seating. Have to maximize that revenue. :thumbup: Looking awesome!

    Project XR3 Phoenix (WIP)

    Definitely needs some overhead windows with a dorsal docking port.

    MFD SystemsMFD

    Agree. It would really take a common effort from the vessel developers. I've suggested using dbeachy's XRVesselCtrl as a baseline before, and others have suggested using the generic messaging framework, but nothing has come of that so far.

    Cockpit panels made of touchscreens

    If you ignore performance, rotation, aspect ratio and scaling issues, :) probably not terribly realistic but pretty flexible. That's one problem with physical flight decks for Orbiter is the wide range of craft and panel layouts available to us - and where dynamic panels would really shine...

    C++ Question OrbConnect not returning status

    Sorry I didn't see this sooner. RL if pummeling me at the moment. I'll update the documentation to make sure that's called out. Sorry for the head scratcher, but thanks for trying O:C.

    Error Strange WTF problem with Orb:Connect 2.1 @ KSC

    Real Life is in my way right now, but I'll try and take a look when I can. Is there anything in the orbiter log? Does the client get a response before the CTD? It only happens with the updated (for P10) DG-IV only? And KSC rwy 33? Very strainge.

    Orbiterwiki maintenance

    What type of XR-series info are you wanting? I'll try to take a look at the Flight Deck section again; I'm sure I can find a couple new pearls of wisdom to add :) Would folks be interested in some how-tos/examples of specific hardware installations? I know bhawthorne promised us a nice...

    OHM Orb:Connect v2.1 Project files

    You're quite welcome. I'm glad it's of use to others. Doesn't sound like it :facepalm: I'll check it when I get home.

    Project Orbiter Master/Slave renderer

    Cool. How much latency do you see with the slave? Can the slave instance be run on a different machine?

    Request Support for mutliple views in OVP

    It is definitely a feature we flight deck builders will use. I was not aware it was available, but now that I am, re-prioritization and saving for additional monitor will begin.

    New Release D3D9Client Development

    As flyer mentioned, that's STS specific, and doesn't mention where the lights are located. According to Wikipedia: , but the image shows it to the right. I like configurable. :cheers:

    External MFDs for Orbiter

    WRT having to tap on the actual button text. . . Yes, that is the problem I am having with selecting the buttons; I'll need to 'tap twice' I see that netdialog doesn't display the options normally shown in the dialog box (e.g. list of targets from Orbit MFD), just the title, presumably because...

    External MFDs for Orbiter

    Just tried ORC and ran into a couple issues. First is that the VNC windows don't scale as expected. here's an image of ORC and normal VNC clients along with the second issue - the dialog client won't connect. Dragging frame larger doesn't help, and I've opened that port on my internal firewall...
