1574

Postby Michael » 11 Jan 2015 01:02

Hello,

revision 1574 is available. Changes:

1. When the controller settings was called, the drag of HUD dispplays was not possible. This should work now.
2. When the keyboards settings are changed and the keyboard display is open, the contents of the display is updated.
3. When HUDs were toggled, the drag of the HUD was unstable sometimes. This should work now.
4. New revision management for the update of resources (not testable for you).

Thank you for your help.

Michael

so, now I decided to give some feedback, had time for testing this morning.

- screen "flickers" directly after loading airport (on program start or when changing airports)
- rotor "disc" sometimes disappears when flying in front of collision objects (trees, fences etc.)
- blade sound doesn't reflect current RPM when RPM drops too low (e.g. when autorotating) - makes autorotation by sound difficult (in Heli-X v4 this was working really good)
- two airports cannot be loaded: "Thurner" and "stoervetten-02"
- "Favourites" in Airport selection: has to be toggled twice before it works
- keyboard definition is not updated automatically when changing language - has to be closed and opened again
- windows cannot be closed by pressing ESC
- selection of Airport/Heli/Scene cannot be done by double clicking
- scrollbar movement is not pagewise when clicking above / below slider

more to follow :) - I really like the current v6 and have already stopped using v5

have fun and success

Just one small thing to add that i just noticed:

In multiplayermode while typing the chatwindow loses focus if another user changes his helicopter.

The statistics (usage time for example) on the current heli is not updated until I either switch to another heli or restart the program. It is not a big deal but it would be nice if this was updated each time I open the statistics window. Also rather than just have an overall time usage it would be nice to see the current session time per current heli as a separate statistic.

Airport and Heli selection:
If an airport or heli isn't currently available and has to be updated, it would be nice if just this airport or heli is preselected in the following update window or if it would be updated and loaded automatically. :)

Ok, I'll try this.

Thank you. here are my comments:

- screen "flickers" directly after loading airport (on program start or when changing airports)

Is a feature, this is the looking around to bring the airport images into the graphics adapter

- rotor "disc" sometimes disappears when flying in front of collision objects (trees, fences etc.)

A known and difficult problems of most graphics engines

- blade sound doesn't reflect current RPM when RPM drops too low (e.g. when autorotating) - makes autorotation by sound difficult (in Heli-X v4 this was working really good)

This is a question of the mdoel settings. I suggest we try this on one or two models together vie email

- two airports cannot be loaded: "Thurner" and "stoervetten-02"

My mistake. They are not part of the distribution

- "Favourites" in Airport selection: has to be toggled twice before it works

I check this

- keyboard definition is not updated automatically when changing language - has to be closed and opened again

This is also true for some windows. Since the language is typically not changed very often. I'll keep this for simplicity.

- windows cannot be closed by pressing ESC

I think this is not usually done. E.g. ESC is for me switching between full screen mode and windowed mode.

- selection of Airport/Heli/Scene cannot be done by double clicking

I'll check this, not sure if I can solve this. Pressing ENTER should work, though.

- scrollbar movement is not pagewise when clicking above / below slider

I'll check this.

Thank you for your help!

Michael
