Title: [Release] Cockpit Mod 2.0!
Post by: fightermedic on April 26, 2013, 06:24:56 pm
The all new and even more shiny version of my cockpit mod is here!
Get it now, while the canopy is still intact!

Download for the new 2.0:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/js3mt4tvgnaqccz/cockpit-mod_2.0.rar

And for those who prefere the old version, here is the link for version 1.2:
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?uugdrw34yc9uwzw

Installation:
- decompress and drop the cockpit-mod-2.0.vp file into every mod's folder that you want to play with cockpits (or if you just want to play the freespace2 main campaign: select the cockpit-mod folder as a mod in the launcher) - the mod might not work on campaigns that use custom ships
- disable the ballistic ammo gauge in the launcher if you have turned it on

known problems:
- distortion and off brackets in the target window
- minor stretching problems with the weapon gauge

and some example screenshots:
of 2.0:

Looks really good. Why the weird energy gauge positions though?
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod
Post by: General Battuta on April 26, 2013, 10:46:45 pm
Installation:
- decompress and drop the data folder into your mediavps folder, overwrite everything if asked
- disable the ballistic ammo gauge and environment maps in the launcher

For the love of god please do NOT DO THIS. Stop. Don't do it. PLEASE STOP. DON'T

(http://media.tumblr.com/b4dd6c79aec8982c0c2dc2ba411cf758/tumblr_inline_mjgew6nrR21qz4rgp.gif)

This should be installed and loaded as a separate mod. I cannot overstate the support hell that may ensue if it's dropped into mediavps_3612/data. Pleeeeeeease, I'm begging you, distribute this as a separate mod folder and edit mod.inis to reference it.
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod
Post by: Dragon on April 27, 2013, 03:57:57 am
Actually, I'd prefer to see it included into the next mediavps as an optional download. Editing mod.ini in every mod you want to use it in is a bit of a chore, not to mention not every user can do it. Besides, this feature is so new so I don't think there is a mod with which it would interfere.

you could just edit the mediavp mod ini to reference it
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod

It'd only work with mediavps then. If any other mod uses mediavps, then mediavps mod.ini wouldn't be loaded.
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod
Post by: headdie on April 27, 2013, 04:14:22 am
true, but given how many mods use mediavps it would drastically cut down the number of mods you need to change
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod
Post by: Dragon on April 27, 2013, 04:30:55 am
Not it wouldn't. Campaigns, even those that don't change anything, usually come in separate mod folder. If FSO loads mod.ini for that campaign, it would not load any mod.ini files for dependencies.

No, absolutely not. You would render the MediaVPs (potentially) incompatible with any campaign using a custom HUD gauge.

It breaks Blue Planet and JAD less than I'd thought!

This is modding 101 - it should be its own mod folder, or at least a VP file that will appear on debug logs.
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod
Post by: General Battuta on April 27, 2013, 09:38:54 am
Whoops I was wrong, the way it's set up now it won't break those things nearly as badly as I thought; it will, however, break everything, due to a LUA error that keeps popping up. It still absolutely needs to be packaged as a VP and probably placed in its own mod folder (which works great, I've tested it!)
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod
Post by: fightermedic on April 27, 2013, 10:16:05 am
download link removed for now
works flawlessly with some mods - doesn't work at all with others, i fail to see the reason just yet but will try to fix it
all the mods i tested it with are among those where it works perfectly well, bad luck i guess, still, sorry for releasing it in a less than optimal state
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod
Post by: General Battuta on April 27, 2013, 10:29:09 am
I really appreciate your hard work here, and honestly, you can sidestep the problem of it only being compatible with some mods by distributing it as its own mod folder. If you do it that way, you can safely leave the table files exposed as plaintext and people can edit it to add whatever ships they'd like.
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod
Post by: fightermedic on April 27, 2013, 03:04:23 pm
i'm completely retarded
my problems have been caused by a too long file path on some mods, due to me changing my freespace directory a few days back - so much for trying to fix problems that have nothing to do with the cockpit mod *sigh*
anyway, download is up again, i've changed a few things

....using vp's is utterly evil and will lead to eternal damnation, but it seems like i don't have much of a choice here  :banghead:

I troubleshoot dozens of FreeSpace Open problems a month. If you don't use VPs, you are making my job - and that of everyone else involved in tech support - much, much harder. The same goes for installing anything to mediavps_3612/data.

Post by: Flygit on May 02, 2013, 04:16:11 am
Nice work.

However, Antagonist mod wouldn't launch without adding the ship name into those two table files. My other much simpler cockpit mod with a helmet hud worked without crashes before I added the ship names.

On a related note, how can I get cockpits working with Blu Planet mods?
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod
Post by: fightermedic on May 04, 2013, 04:22:25 pm
thank you,
the problem with this mod is the reloading gauge script, for some reason i don't understand it is causing crashes with ships that are not added to the gauge table
i'll see if i can find a way to have the hud display as default on ships that are not added to the list
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod
Post by: Flygit on May 06, 2013, 12:02:34 pm
Apparently Blue Planet's original ships work fine with your cockpit mod but the new GTF Aurora ship doesn't. It won't display cockpit at all. I managed to get a hideous looking cockpit for the Aurora after enabling show ship flag. If I change POF filename to generic and add the file to vp file, game crashes. Is there a way to use your cockpit with BP's new ships?

Wing Commander Saga crashes with this mod. Something about reloads and wcsaga exe. Can anything be done here?

I found your included leading reticle too big and too busy looking. I replaced it with Diaspora's one which is a bit smaller and easier on the eyes.
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod
Post by: General Battuta on May 06, 2013, 12:08:25 pm
You just need to modify the cockpit mod's ships table to add entries for the new BP ships. Be aware that this will cause some weird **** in some BP2 missions.

I should've mentioned I tried that and some other things. Result was no cockpit, part of the new hud was there and some parts of it were missing completely. I have the mod's files unpacked if that matters?

I did manage to add Antagonist and Shadow Genesis mods ships successfully. GTF Aurora is not taking off.

Hi,

Finally a cockpit mod, it's been what I expected it (and others too).
In addition it is really cool, but I would ask you, you install it, or what the final file, because you mentioned several places, I'm a little lost, thank you in advance for your answers.
Apologies for English (Google translation) :confused: :yes:
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod
Post by: fightermedic on June 15, 2013, 05:02:14 am
i am glad you like it :)

- download
- decompress the .rar file
- copy the "cockpit.vp" file to the mod you want to play, OR select the "cockpit-mod" folder as a mod if you want to play the freespace2 campaign

hope this helps, if not, what's you native language?
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod

excuse me, I have unzip the "Cockpit Mod" file in Games \ Freespace2, I selected the launcher as Mod, but I have a "Lua" error keeps appearing and this game farm.
Could someone please help me? Thank you in advance for your answers.

do you have the "mediavps_3612" folder present in the Freespace2 folder?
do you select the cockpit-mod in the launcher as a mod? that part isn't clear, sorry
lua errors should only appear if there are conflicts with other mods; you are trying to play the standard freespace 2 campaign, yes?
oh, and do you use the freespace exe with version 3.6.18 or newer?
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod
Post by: hironside on June 18, 2013, 12:38:00 pm
Hi,
Yes, I have the 3.6.18 exe, I run Cockpit mod as a mod in the launcher, I have the media3.6.12 but you can not choose it as Mod.
Location Cockpit mod ==> C: \ Games \ Freespace2 \ Cockpit-mod
I read a little higher than it should be "edit mod-ini" to reference??
Excuse me for trduction, I use "Google Translation", I'm French.

try to delete "reload-sct.tbm" in "data\tables" in the cockpit-mod folder, maybe the lua error will go away then

Pour vous en français: (Mais mon français est très mal :( )
essayez de supprimer "reload-sct.tbm" dans "data \ tables" dans le dossier "cockpit-mod", s'il vous plaît
peut-être l'erreur lua disparaît
Je ne comprends pas ceci: "I read a little higher than it should be "edit mod-ini" to reference??"

Just trying to help. I think he wants to enable both the MediaVPS and the Cockpit-mod, and he's asking if he has to edit the mod.ini as someone said earlier in the thread. Well, I just downloaded the mod and the mod.ini already includes the mediavps_3612 in the secondary list, so he shouldn't change a thing unless he has changed the mediavps folder to another name.

Hironside, pour l'erreur LUA, essaye juste de supprimer le fichier "reload-sct.tbm" sur "data/tables" dans le dossier du cockpit-mod. Peut-être l'érreur disparaîtra.
Par rapport au MediaVPS, je viens juste de télécharger le mod et il n'est plus nécessaire d'éditer le fichier mod.ini. Si tu as téléchargé ce mod récemment et les MediaVPS sont bien dans le dossier "mediavps_3612", tu n'as rien d'autre à faire.
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod
Post by: hironside on June 19, 2013, 03:31:26 pm
Ok, that's exactly it, thank you very much, now I no longer have the "Lua" error, but the mod does not start.
I noticed one thing, when I downloaded the mod cockpit for the first time, inside the "cockpit mod \ Data \ Cache" there was a list of 10 ships for the second time "I downloaded after two days, there were more ships, but the "GenericCP.bx" file ... I do not understand is that I have a problem with my decompression software "IZArc"?
Which of the two files is good, with 10 vessels that either?
Thank you in advance.

Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod
Post by: fightermedic on June 19, 2013, 03:45:51 pm
files in the cache folder are generated when you start the game, ignore them

- run the mod until it crashes
- upload "fs2_open.log" in "FreeSpace2\data"

maybe the log file can tell us what is wrong

did you ever try to run the mediavps_3612 without my mod? ( = did you select mediavps_3612 in the launcher as a mod?) does it crash too?
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod
Post by: hironside on June 20, 2013, 11:27:35 pm
HOORAY, I finally managed to launch the "Cockpit_mod" Fightermedic thank you for all the advice you gave me, and I thank all those who helped me.
I deleted everything and reinstalled in Games \ Freespace2 and impeccable! I do not know why it did not work the first time.
Is it normal that when I select "Cockpit_mod" in the launcher it is written at the top right, there Mediavps_3612 image and name in the middle of the launcher please?
Thank you again for your help.

                                      :yes:                  :turrent: :alright:

PS: Thanks again for your help and excuse me for the English translation with "Google Translation".
One last thing please, red triangle between the viewfinder and the target on the first screen on top (1), I guess it's the missiles lock is to make a selection in the pitcher Freespace2 or it is part of a mod which you play?

I've reinstalled FS2 and using Turey's installer redownloaded all the required stuff, same result.
Ships are Apollo (start of FS1 campaign) and Myrmidon (start of FS2 campaign). Weird heh.

Oh, btw, prior to installing FSO I've updated FS2 to v1.2, could it cause any problems?

Freespace 2 with Media VPs 3612 or new 2014 don't work with 1.1 version of this mod. FS2 ver 3.6.18 onwards don't work. Game crashes, something about reload-stc.tbm.

Is there anything you can do?

Works nicely now. Thanks!

However I still have one problem. How do I get this working with Blue Planet? I've added GTF Aurora to the list but it's not showing up in game. I've done this same method with other mods and it works. Does Blue Planet simply not work or does it require something special?
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 1.2
Post by: fightermedic on February 08, 2014, 04:32:20 pm
blue planet uses its own hud table, so you might miss stuff if you use this mod anyway
i'd recommend to not use it with Blue Planet at this point in time, maybe i will upload a Blue Planet compatible version in the future though

Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 1.2
Post by: Flygit on February 08, 2014, 05:34:30 pm
I have other generic cockpit mod with a "helmet" hud that just adds the cockpit and doesn't move any of the default hud elements and it doesn't work either. Is there an easy way to get that version working?

I find TrackIR really needs a cockpit or otherwise it can be disorienting without a clear point of reference to where your center is. Sure there are small HUD things but BP compatible version would be great if you have time to work on it.
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 1.2

And maybe fightermedic can figure out what to do with it to render it cockpit-compatible?

Bear in mind, we're not just talking small things here: there's an added stealth gauge, a visibility monitor, two big MFDs for stuff like artillery and air wing commands or mission-specific equipment, an ELINT gauge for a specific mission, and a status ticker.

adding just the cockpit without the gauges is very easy, as for that you only need to tell every specific ship which cockpit to display
- completely delete "Cockpits-hdg.tbm" from my mod
- add a new entry for the ship you want to have a cockpit to "Cockpits-shp.tbm"

Hi ho boys, from spain

Great mod

This ol'man who's speaking need some help (see image)

I'm using triple monitor config, but as you see some gauges (speed, weapons energy, messages and so on) are really big (very low resolution)

seem that hud_gauges.tbl do nothing with mod activated

any clue to resize those mega-monster-size-low-res gauges

TY in advance

love the mod! i hope this becomes compatible (if possible) with BP in the future, as well as the next MVPs. 1 problem i ran into is the final SOC mission where you go with snipes to take out those shivan comm devices. i get a cockpit, but it is totally glitched and there is no HUD. will this be fixed in the next patch for the mod?
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 1.2
Post by: equalvision87 on March 19, 2014, 02:55:12 pm
Awesome mod! It looks great and adds a lot of immersion to the game. Is there any way, however, to restore the games original targeting reticle? Specifically the indicator that shows me where to fire my energy weapons. Its a lot harder, and a little frustrating trying to hit another ship without it. Thanks :D
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 1.2
Post by: fightermedic on March 29, 2014, 08:18:28 pm
the targeting reticle is still there, it just works differently, you now hit if the reticle is floating over the enemy ship, as it kind of drags behind the the reticle that shows where you are aiming at
if you look at the second screenshot on the first post, you can see how it works, with the reticle floating over beta1
in this situation, if i shoot i will hit beta1

Very nice job   :yes:, would be amazing if the z position of the camera is moved a bit  with the acceleration and deceleration of the ship   :)
I saw on Freelancer cockpits and is a very nice effect.

Post by: FrikgFeek on June 20, 2014, 06:48:08 am
The new lead indicator just doesn't click with me, I've been trying to edit the .vp files to get the old one but to no avail. A real shame considering the cockpits look really good. Has anyone else figured out a solution or am I the only one who doesn't like the new one?
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 1.2
Post by: Flygit on June 20, 2014, 07:21:48 am
I don't like the lead indicator either because it's too big, cumbersome etc. I replaced it with Diaspora's one. It has same design but it's a lot smaller.

Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 1.2
Post by: Scooby_Doo on July 06, 2014, 04:22:38 am
Think I found the solution, I used your hud icon effect for it.  Apparently it didn't inherit the original cursor texture.  Either that or I or the open saga conversion failed somewheres.


Also the $gauges is the most confusing thing ever.  Why do we have Canvas size AND Display size?  Even worse Display Size doesn't correlate to the hud textures width/height.
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 1.2
Post by: Scooby_Doo on August 14, 2014, 12:43:50 am
Another question, I just realized I'm missing the target's damage value.  Where's that? 
WIKI says it's part of +Damage, "Adds a gauge that shows how much damage a target (or the player?) has. "
But looking at your table I don't see anything about it.
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 1.2
Post by: fightermedic on August 15, 2014, 05:06:23 am
i'm not sure what you are talking about
+Damage should be the gauge that shows your hull and subsystem integrity, when you are hit
that should be there, and working fine?
look at the first screenshot on the first page, the yellow gauge in the center of the cockpit
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 1.2
Post by: Scooby_Doo on August 15, 2014, 02:51:22 pm
I found it... +Mini Target Shields.  It's your target's shield and hull strength in small scale.
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 1.2
Post by: fightermedic on August 15, 2014, 05:43:53 pm
oh, THAT is what you have been looking for
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 1.2
Post by: Scooby_Doo on August 15, 2014, 11:09:44 pm
Ya, I'm rebuilding my hud from the ground up.  The way they had implemented it and the way I thought they had was just too confusing and frustrating.  I've set all controls to be Display Size: 256*256, then adjust canvas size accordingly, works much better.  :yes:


Edit: Maybe you don't know this but can the throttle HUD element be modified? I would like one that was basically just a straight line instead of a curve, but looking at the saga tables I can't seem to figure out how they did that since nothing is mentioned in the tables.
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 1.2
Post by: fightermedic on August 16, 2014, 04:33:28 am
it certainly can, look at diaspora for a straight one
i think all you need is a different ani file, you can test it with the one from diaspora i guess

right now i'm also in the process of reworking my cockpit mod, not big changes, but i've decided to move back the view position a bit, so that the cockpit isn't blocking as much of the view, and slightly move a few hud elements

fightermedic, would you mind making a multimonitor compatible version for us nvidia surround/eyefinity/triplehead etc. users?

I changed some values based on diaspora eyefinity hud tables and they seem to work but maybe you know better to use values that suit your mod better.

Getting a Crash wit Media VP_2014, right after startup. Says something like "Runtime Error..." Funny thing: With FSPort it just runs fine... And its only when I'm using the Cockpit mod.

This could be your problem you are using both mediaVPS at the same time.

No, still the same problem. Also, the cockpit mod works with the mediaVP_2014 when I'm using the Fsport. The other thing is, I'm using both media_Vp's because the 2014 alone doesn't seem to work. Only with the 3.6.12. Without them I have only Retail Graphics.

I installed them with the Online Installer, but don't have the internet right now to download them again.

Downloaded it, Put it in the Media_VP folders.... and still the same. I know me. I'm sure its something INCREDIBLY stupid and easy to fix, just a thing no one things about. These are the mistakes I make the most...  :banghead:


Haha, fixed it. Like I said somethin INCREDBLY stupid. AND it explains why it worked with fsport. I used a selfmade TBM for the Loki#stealth entry, that isn't in the normal Cockpit_mod TBL.   :rolleyes:

Looks nice but I am not sure I am crazy about the message screens coming up in the middle. Maybe drop them down 15% from top and center. Just a thought

i know, it's all a bit crowded down there, but i experimented with all kind of positions to put the message box, and this simply is the one that looked best for me personally
and i guess since the BP guys came to pretty much the same conclusion, it can't be all that wrong

This is likely the wrong place to ask, but I'm not sure where else to do so; How do I move the HUD elements around? I'm using 2.0 and the text box appears at the bottom-right of the screen, frankly it's really bad positioning, how can I rectify this?
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 2.0!
Post by: fightermedic on January 26, 2015, 11:24:42 am
sounds like a bug, what resolution are you using?
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 2.0!
Post by: Hopeful on January 28, 2015, 02:06:09 am
I'm using... wait lemme get Launcher up.

1360x768. Native resolution for the monitor I'm using - actually it's an old widescreen TV. Would you like a .log file? I'm not sure which to send since this isn't a game-halting problem and I can deal with it, the text box is just crushed in the bottom-right section of the screen, is all.

I like this mod, but there are two annoying little niggles for me atm!

Firstly, I'm using it with FSport-mediavps. The most noticeable bug is the the bar which indicates you are being shot at is now in a horizontal position, arching over the right side of my screen. I'm on a 16:10 resolution of 1440*900.

Secondly, I prefer the "lead indicator". Is there any way to get the lead indicator back?

The dialog box dropped way too low on my end.
Is there a fix for this?

P/S: I cannot PrintScreen. It just take a pic of my desktop instead.

The "On Message Received" scripting hook was introduced in r10756, which is why r10277 doesn't have it but 3.7.2 does. To get help with the other problems you're having, please post your fs2_open.log file.  Instructions on how to do this can be found in this post.

Hello fightermedic, I really appreciate your work on this cockpit. (And your campaings remastering too...)
Having cockpit is essential when you play with Freetrack. And Freetrack is essential for me for playing space combat sim, after I started to use it in Elite Dangerous...
With all new releases I want to get back to Freespace after 8 month of KSP and 4 month of ED.

([off] by the way honestly I think Freespace Open > Elite Dangerous as a combat sim, and much more engaging with all campaigns ... then grinding stuff in ED. So glad FSO is still developing and campaigns (FSPort, ST:R, Blue Planet) getting updated. Respect to all HLP guys, I love you :) [/off]

However I appreciate also if you will ask 2 simple questions regarding your mod:

1) Is there's any way to change Diaspora style "Trailing" indicator to default Freespace "Leading" indicator? It's really hard for me to make new habits :) Also I love to use unguided missiles to give more punch with my 2 stage trigger joystick and it hard to line up primary and secondary weapon shot when you have trailing for primary and leading for secondary. Thank you in advance for the answer.

2) How can I fall back to use oldie 2D radar (or at least disable radar sound)

Sorry if it is stupid questions, I'm not experienced in FSO modding...  (Did some HUD stuff for X3 and some module manager configs for KSP)
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 2.0!
Post by: Familiar on January 12, 2016, 06:04:01 am
O'l I'm sorry for double posting, but since mod author did not reply...

I figured out how to change trail aiming to lead aiming, thanks to hud gauges wiki.
The sound question solved also.
So another dumb question - is it possible to have +showship and custom cockpit at the same time  - so different ships could have different cannopies?

Here the link to modified table file https://www.dropbox.com/s/k8c5eec2wkg6ezn/fightermedics_cockpit1.2_lead_targeting_fix.zip?dl=0
you need to put it in \data\tables inside mod folder.
as I understand (may be wrong) it should override the table in .vp file
Let me know if it work for you as well.

Thanks it worked. I was going to look at placing the onscreen face messages back to the upper left as well as they seem to cover the targeting screen when incoming messages are being spoken but it seems that you did that as well.

I was looking at trying to modify this Cockpit mod so that the target monitor picture is the same one that is used without the cockpit mod. Here is a screenshot. The left is the non cockpit mod and the right is with the mod. I think it would look better if it could use the image as without the mod.

I have looked through the cockpit mod files and have not seen where the image is getting changed or maybe just the color palette?

Any help would be appreciated.

That's not wireframe I don't think, but it does look like another bug I think was already being looked into.  That being the whited-out ship drawings.  They're not completely white, but it looks to be some kind of very high bloom being applied.

You are right.
btw I noticed in cockpit mod that model in targetbox looks like without z-buffer i.e. like in F3 lab with No Z-buffer selected.

Yep went back and tried 3.7.4 and it worked fine. So it is a bug in the latest nightly builds.


I did try the shift-alt-q and hitting that a couple times the image did look like the non-cockpit mod after I brightened in up a bit. Weird

Update:

I added the following code to a hud_gauges.tbl file in the cockpit-mod/data/tables folder and it seems to have fixed the problem.

Hi,

Any advice on what I need to do to add compatibility for WCSaga?

Thanks in advance!

Technically, all you need to do is open the mod's -shp.tbm and edit it. It's located in the vp's tables folder (You will need a program to open the vp, I recommend VPGUI (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=83920.0)). In that file, you will see a lot of entries like this:
Code: [Select]
$Name: GVF Anubis Mk II
+nocreate
$Cockpit POF file: GenericCP.pof
+Cockpit Offset: 0 -1.1 1.50
$Cockpit Display:
+Texture: TerranCockpit1
+Offsets: (0, 0)
+Size: (2048, 2048)
+Display Name: display_box

Now, you will need to delete everything between the #Ship Classes and the #End line, copy the above entry, and replace the $Name: with the name of the ship you want to add a cockpit to.

EDIT:

Oh, forgot something. In Cockpits-hdg.tbm, you will also need to find all the "$Ships:" lines and replace that list of classes with the list of class names you've set up in the -shp.tbm.

However, this is where I have to warn you: This may not work at all, because the engine WCS uses is distinctly different from FS_Open, and may lack a lot of the features required for the cockpit mod to work (And no, there is no way to get WCS to work on FS_Open right now. The changes they made to make WCS are incompatible with FreeSpace, and we have little interest to put in the work required to adapt the features they made to make them work our way).

Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 2.0!
Post by: Axem on May 22, 2017, 11:07:46 am
axmsg is just my scripted message gauge, I don't think it's 100% necessary for 3d cockpit gauges. You could delete the script file and deal with what the game already uses for messages.
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 2.0!
Post by: The E on May 22, 2017, 11:15:19 am
True, if that script isn't in some way vital to the mod, that could work.
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 2.0!
Post by: crazycanuck on May 22, 2017, 12:17:56 pm
Well the good news is that removing the axmsg mod has removed the error.

The bad news is that now I get this:

Starting parse of 'Cockpits-shp.tbm' ...
Cockpits-shp.tbm(line 7:Error: Required token = [#End], [$Subsystem:], [$Name], or [$Template], found [$Cockpit Display:].
ERROR: Cockpits-shp.tbm(line 7:
Error: Required token = [#End], [$Subsystem:], [$Name], or [$Template], found [$Cockpit Display:].

I looked in the wiki and found that fsopen 3.6.16 supports this command. I assume that WCSaga is built on an older version.

All I need is to get render to texture working ans I can do the rest.

Any ideas, or am I out of luck?

Hello!  Long-time lurker here.  These cockpits look AMAZING.
I installed this cockpit mod (v2) half-way through FS2Blue in the Blue Planet Complete mod, and didn't detect any problems.
When I got to Age of Aquarius and piloted a GTF Aurora for the first time, I saw that there is no visible cockpit.  There may be other affected ships that I haven't flown yet.
I have already located bp-shp.tbm, and added "Show Ship" to the flags for the Aurora, but alas, it did not work.
Is this something I can fix by modifying a table, or is there something more in-depth that a beginner like me could have trouble with?

Note:  This is the first time I've opened a .vp file, and the first time I've modified a .tbm file (yay!).

Please forgive me if I shouldn't have resurrected this thread.
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 2.0!
Post by: Ghaleon4 on October 05, 2017, 07:47:31 pm
OMG, I figured it out!

Okay.
I extracted all of the table files into bpcomplete/data/tables.
Opened each file looking for ship references.
If I found a file with a bunch of ship references, I copied the template from an existing ship, and just replaced its name.
I can be more specific for anyone that needs it, but I'm only halfway through fixing it.

PS: also while using it with FSport I noticed that a lot of the HUD elements were duplicated, the radar was both 3D and 2D at the same time and so were the throttle gauge and the weapon energy gauge toghether with the mission accomplished messages, and when using it "alone" (only with the mediavps that is) the subsystem brackets in the target display are outside the target box.

This mod is fantastic, and I am loving it so far for FS2

Unfortunately in FSPort it is a little broken. It functions, but since Freespace 1 uses a round cockpit hud instead of the weird square shaped thing in FS2, the HUD gauges are in a really weird place. I have attached a screenshot showing what I mean

TBH I think the best outcome would be to create 2 versions - 1 with the HUD from the first game, one with the HUD from the second game - and make them both usable in both games, so that people who prefer the HUD from FS1 can use that, and the people who prefer the HUD from FS2 can use that, regardless of which game they are playing, or they could use both (1 in each MediaVP folder) for the "vanilla" experience.

EDIT: Okay, I have a fix. I got the file from FSPort that forces the game to use the FS1 HUD, and instead forced it to use the FS2 hud. The file is attached. Put it in the cockpitmod 2.0/data/tables folder and it should fix the broken HUD.

The main issue I have with this mod is that I can't see my wingmates health anymore. Otherwise I would totally play it H24 :)

Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 2.0! Double hud
Post by: airpyr8t on March 06, 2018, 04:38:02 pm
I am having an irritating time with  cockpit 2.0  mod and the freespace open  mission upgrades with reference fsport , fsport media vp2014 and fsportv3.5 . I get a bouble hud on some ships and things are all in wierd places.  Now ive tried removing hud folder from all the vp contained in those folders and all references from the tables contained therein before loading the cockpit 2..o vp into fsport Mission upgrade folder but for some darn reason there is still a hud. Is there a way to override any hud data so the custom huds included with cockpit mod  are the only ones that display?

I just happened across this mod posting.  Just curious: Does anyone know if the compatibility for this has been fixed when it comes to BP and other modded fighter-craft?
Title: Re: [Release] Cockpit Mod 2.0!

It's not a compatiblity problem. Each fighter model needs its own cockpit model. The only way to fix the problem is to make a cockpit for each custom fighter and table it (https://wiki.hard-light.net/index.php/Ships.tbl#.24Cockpit_POF_file:). Though if you don't care for accuracy, you can probably reuse the existing cockpits.

The HUD issues on the other hand are compatiblity problems which can be fixed by adapting the HUD table for each mod.

Interesting.  I guess that means I'd be better off pulling the TBL files and modding the entries for the fighters in each mod I'd like to have the cockpits visible in.  I remember there was a certain tag I could put in.  Trying to remember what that is, though....

@NFSRacer, you must be behind FSReunited?

Anyway, my machine screwed up my builds ability to show "show ship" cockpits.

As long as I have this file in my directory

I get this message.
(https://i.gyazo.com/1f94350e6d405a212b4b91c7ff0280c2.png)

That normal?

Also, when I copied the mod file from cockpits it replaces the mod folder for MediaVPs_2014.
I made a back up prior to doing so and I know enough about coding to know these need to be manually combined and not enough to know exactly how to do it.
(Left is the Cockpit Mod/ Right is the original Media VPs_2014 it replaced)

I too have the same issue, as well as whilst ingame, the cockpit and it's HUD render successfully, yet the HUD is doubled, the default HUD is overlapping the Cockpit and is all screwed up. I will try to get screenshots tomorrow.

Which MediaVPs version are you using? This mod probably isn't compatible with MediaVPs 3.8.x which might cause the double HUD issue.

I am using the latest ones via Knossos, is there a fix? I also am looking for working cockpits for Blue Planet Complete

See this thread (https://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=95499.0) for possible fixes regarding the MediaVPs. To fix the double HUD, create an empty text file called "mv_root-hdg.tbm" in <Cockpit Mod's folder>/data/tables. Make sure that there's no .txt extension at the end of the filename.

AFAIK there are no working cockpits for BPC.
