    THANK YOU!!!


    I am amazed at how each update eclipses the last! Stunning improvement after stunning improvement!

    Sorry I haven't looked into the gunsight issue yet, but I'm busy with a new big feature which should be ready for testing soon.

    The slight drop of FPS is most likely caused by terrain shader being more complex now as it has to handle aircraft shadows.

    Cool, I'm looking forward to it!

    I wonder what the new feature is, looking forward to it!

  6. #456
    Ok, it is taking longer than expected

    The new feature is supposed to be the head movement caused by G-forces in virtual cockpit mode. It adds to immersion and makes those reflector gunsights even more useful.
    I've finally found a way to update head position in VC without interfering with TrackIR which was a major obstacale. The new problem however is that I still can't get the movement physics right. It sort of works, but I'm not satisfied with the result.

  7. #457
    Interesting. I've noticed that when I'm flying in game, my body tends to naturally lean in response to the visual cue of the tilting view I'm seeing on the screen during turning movements. Perhaps your G-force response could be tied proportionally to the horizon angle rate of change.

    Very cool! Looking forward to it. Will it look similar to your old video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=cNKolIRx4E0

    I really liked how the shaking started with the engine startup.

    @Ankor:

    Thanks so much for including the driver version fake out thing. Works like a charm. There have been two nVidia driver updates since I installed the new shaders and not a single demand to run the config utility!

    Yes, similar, but probably more subtle by default. I think excessive shaking is too annoying.


    @Threedp, glad it helped

    So who wants to be a beta tester?

    I've made an experimental version of d3d8.dll which enables acceleration (g-force) effects for virtual cockpit view.

    You need to use the latest build (20161212) but replace the dll with the one from this archive:

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...adMovement.zip

    There are no adjustment options yet, but I plan to add them.
    I still don't like certain behaviors, but I feel that I need some "user" opinions before continuing

    Here is the latest version of shaders as I promised:
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...8.20161126.zip

    It includes WOFF UE features, but it is not exactly the same build - I've a few minor tweaks and rebuild it with Visual C++ 2015. It might no longer work on WinXP, but I hope nobody really needed it.

    This version fully replaces stock cfs3 ground shadows with DX9 ones. However you must turn off shadows in cfs3config or you will see double shadows.
    There are also some performance improvements and bugfixes (among them is a fix for black spots appearing on water at low angles).

    The archive doesn't include d3d8.ini and TextureMagic.ini -- you can reuse your existing ones. However there are a couple of new settings supported in d3d8.ini.
    FakeDriverVersion=1
    Will stop cfs3 from asking to rerun cfs3config after each driver update. It will simply report fake driver version 9.0.0.0 Instead of actual driver version.
    AlphaToCoverage=1
    Experimental technique for rendering trees transparency. Works better when multisampling antialiasing is enabled. However it is not tuned well, so might look worse than normal rendering.
    Just want to make shure I have edited the d3d8.ini correctly :

    [D3D8]
    ;Will stop cfs3 from asking to rerun cfs3config after each driver update.
    FakeDriverVersion=1


    ;Experimental technique for rendering trees transparency.
    AlphaToCoverage=1


    ; Change to NoMultisampling=1 for SweetFX compatibility, but it will disable ingame antialiasing.
    NoMultisampling=1


    ; Aircraft shadows. 0 - No Shadows; 1 - Low; 2 - Medium; 3 - Good; 4 - High; 5 - Best
    ShadowQuality=5


    ; Terrain shadows. 0 - Disabled; 1 - Low Quality; 2 - Medium; 3 - High
    TerrainShadows=3


    ; 0 - Disabled; 1 - Enabled
    TerrainBumpMapping=1

    Yes, look correct.
    Neither of these new options are required. So if you don't want "alpha to coverage" you can just remove that line (or change the value to be 0).

    Downloaded! First impressions: this is going to be a great feature! Response seems a bit weak in this version, it might be nice if it were more noticeable, though not as strong as in your video. Also, there doesn't seem to be any response to the roll axis. Response to ground bumps is OK, but based on experience, I think it should be stronger, it looked just about right in your old video. I was really hoping to see the shake from the engine startup as in the video, do you plan on adding it?

    Thanks for continuing to develop your shaders!

  17. #467
    It will be possible to adjust the response, this version is very damped because otherwise it is just too shaky for WOFF to be playable. Their aircrafts tend to shake much more (suspiciously more, I will need to investigate it) than the ones I tried in stock CFS3.

    However, you will be surprised how noticeably any aircraft shakes if the damping is removed. I'm not sure it is fully intentional though, a part of it is definitely caused by calculation errors. After all I have to approximate aircraft speed and acceleration. You see, this feature doesn't "know" about joystick input, ground bumps or engine revs, instead I try to calculate inertial forces from aircraft movement and rotation and then adjust the view. And on top of that my formulas are likely incomplete, but it is been quite a while since I studied physics and I'm too lazy now to go into depths now

    I'd also love to add the roll effect, but it doesn't seem to be possible in cfs3 - the game only supports pitch and yaw rotation for VC view.

  18. #468
    Ah I see, sounds like most of this is way over my head, but it will be interesting to play with adjustments later. I didn't realize you were using existing CFS3 head movement to do this, I thought it might have been some sort of external screen shake approach. But yeah, as far as I know CFS3 doesn't use the roll axis for head movement.

  19. #469
    It's pretty subtle, and that's probably a good thing. I was afraid it was going to make me seasick if it was too strong and unrelenting.

    Perhaps you could tap into the force feedback triggers, and use that to turn up the amplification temporarily?

    Oh, good idea, most aircraft have that section in their aircraft.cfg. Might offer some additional control and possibilities.

  21. #471
    It is an interesting idea about force feedback, but I can't easily read game settings from my dll.

    Here is another "head shake" test version:
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...8.20161221.zip

    It is more correct now: previous version calculated forces at aircraft's center of gravity, but now they are properly calculated at cockpit location (including gunner stations).
    I've also reduced vertical and forward movement, but increased the range of horizontal movement. I believe this is more correct for human body

    This version also fixes the old "sky-colored triangles at edges of the screen" issue caused by head rotation when using TrackIR (though stock CFS3 doesn't seem to suffer from it as much as OFF). I'm not sure if there are any side-effects, will be interesting to know.

    Finally, the effect is configurable now.
    Add 3 lines into d3d8.ini:
    OffsetSpring=12
    OffsetResponse=6
    RotationSpring=24


    OffsetSpring and RotationSpring controls how fast the view returns to neutral position, i.e. how strong is the resistance to movement (offset) or rotation.
    Minimum value for OffsetSpring is around 4, less than than might cause the view to drift even after a slight shake. Maximum is unlimited but there's probably no difference after 100 or so.
    Setting RotationSpring to very low value produces an interesting effect -- the view tries to stay focused on the same point for some time regardless of aircraft rotation.

    OffsetResponse basically controls the damping of head shake. Note that higher values means LESS damping, i.e. this parameter defines how quick the view responds to acceleration. It has no effect on rotation.

  22. #472
    Thanks! Works well, and even seems to add 2-3 fps with my standard test conditions.

    I used 9, 9, 9 to make the effect more obvious just to see how it behaves. It's pretty intuitive about how your head/body needs to move in response to the view shifts to keep the gunsight reticle in view. It makes a maneuvering dogfight an opportunity for some light exercise.

    I really appreciate that the peripheral triangles have been eliminated too.

    I'm finding that I need to develop new piloting skills to account for the head movement. They act in a way that is very realistic, and I now have to move my body counter to the aircraft movements in response.

    Most of the time it's no big problem, but in a swirling dogfight, it takes a whole different level of physical coordination than I'm used to. You have to swivel your head to track where the target is going while keeping your body lined up with the shifting gunsight. I will learn how to do it intuitively with time and practice, but for the time being the AI have a distinct advantage in that they don't have to deal with any of that.

    I have managed to get my first kill, but it took way longer than usual, and I shot a lot of rounds off into empty space before I was done with him.

    Thank you very much for this wonderful addition to your CFS3 modernization project.

    Thanks so much Ankor! I like the head movement a lot, it seems more natural now. And as I use the WOFF scenery in CFS3 I'm very happy not to see the blue triangles anymore!

    The only visual issue I have is that part of the scene seem to tear. Not sure if that's the right way to describe it, and I can't capture it in a screenshot but I will sometimes see a flickering horizontal seam in different places on the screen. It's pretty hard to describe, so I hope that makes sense to you.

    Also, I've had a couple CTDs. Here is the log from my last one:

  25. #475
    Ok, glad you like it. Yes, it makes it more difficult to aim while turning. I will probably add a few additional settings for adjusting the movement limits.

    The problem of those triangles is an odd one. It seems CFS3 updates view position/direction twice for each frame, but calculates terrain visibility only once. So if any head movement occurs between updates the list visible terrain triangles no longer matches the actual view. And TrackIR seems to update the view at arbitrary moments so it is very likely to happen at "wrong" time.
    I fixed it by simply disabling the second view update (ok, it wasn't so simple to figure out) and looks like it worked well and without side effects. No idea why they made it like this. It might have introduced one frame lag to TrackIR movement, but I guess it is not really noticeable.

    However, I noticed that missing triangles is still an issue when zooming out and when rotating the weapon in gunner position (I tested it in WOFF). Most likely it is a similar problem - view update after visibility check, but currenly I'm not looking into it as it seems to be an entirely different part of the code.


    gecko, screen tearing happens because you have turned off VSync. I guess turning it off helps with frame rate, but the drawback is this kind of tearing when view moves a lot.
    Modern GPUs have something called "adaptive VSync" which prevents tearing and doesn't reduce FPS. It can be enabled in driver settings, but I'm not entirely sure how it works and how modern your GPU has to be.


    As for the CTD, the logs doesn't show anything, but I've also had several CTDs during testing (though not with this latest version) when my mod tried to rotate the view to extreme angles. Maybe I need to add a stricter sanity checks into my math. There is a Russian joke about the military thinking: "during wartime the value of sine can reach 4", but it seems that the game engine doesn't agree with it
