Re: COM port baud rate / UDP

Sigh. I have no need to be convinced I only need 1hz instruments. I have a need to find out if I can increase the data rate or use condor's UDP protocol with xcsoar. I know what its like when testing and trying to configure a vario, particularly an acoustic vario which modulates the sound not only o...

Re: COM port baud rate / UDP

Condor serial port output achieves about 1 update per second. Thats just not fast enough to simulate a vario. Try thermalling with only the xcsoar vario... The openvario flight computer has builtin pressure sensors, and when using those (so in actual flight), it updates ~20Hz, which is smooth enough...

Re: COM port baud rate / UDP

Thanks, but the moment you use Condor's NMEA serial port output, you are stuck at 4800 baud. Even if you pipe it over a much faster wifi/ethernet connection afterwards. So, that doesnt really help me.

COM port baud rate / UDP

Im testing an openvario computer (flight computer for xcsoar) with condor, before it gets installed in a glider. I got it working using 2 USB to serial adapters, but condor seems hardcoded at 4800 baud. Thats arguably fast enough for GPS data, but I also want to simulate the vario, and for that, its...

Re: Condor 2.0? honesty please

Considering V2 will use DX11, you can safely forget a native linux (or OSX) port. I recall trying V1 on linux using wine3D. IIRC, that actually worked pretty well with high framerates, except for the joystick input that didnt work at all. Which is a pretty minor detail :). But that was many years ag...

Re: Use condor during winter to train for summer?

One more tip; there is a sensor in the grip, that detects if you are holding the stick or not; Its at the front of the stick, i think its an optical detection. If you let go, it disables force feedback. I used to deliberately 'fool' the sensor so I could just let go of the stick, and it would mainta...

Re: Use condor during winter to train for summer?

Well it works! Did some flying yesterday, cant get a real good grip with only a few fingers on the stick (like in RL) Any tips on where to hold the stick? Or maybe any tweaks i need to make on the joystick settings? How you hold it, is entirely up to you. But maybe you want to decrease the "st...

Re: Condor with low fps....

He has a geforce gtx1050, and really, *any* driver thats new enough to support that card, will be about 10 years more recent than Condor. And any CPU that still runs windows 10, ought to be plenty fast too. Its clearly related to his windows 10 Insider Preview Build somehow. I would be guessing its ...

I use it for trim. You can use it for airbrakes, but really, you only need those ~once every flight. Well, maybe when starting or when trying to avoid getting sucked in to a cloud, but for those purposes, buttons works fine.

Re: Use condor during winter to train for summer?

MS FFB2 works fine in windows 10, its just plug and play. Any other joystick will work too, but no other joystick on the market gives actual force feedback (well, there are a few others forcefeedback sticks that have been produced over the years, but they are rubbish). The force feedback is really n...

Re: Multi Monitor Support

I feel we're going in circles. DX11 doesnt help here. When running dgvoodoo, V1 for all intents and purposes becomes a DX11 app, supporting multiple monitors, 3D video etc. That doesnt help with this. Adjustable FOV, with or without thrid party warping tools, isnt a solution either. Let me explain w...

Re: Multi Monitor Support

The pricetags on them are indeed high, but I'm pretty sure you're overthinking the rest. People use these for pretty demanding applications, including professional flight simulation and people are even playing twitch fps games on them. Im sure these apps work great when you use them for things like...

Re: Multi Monitor Support

Assuming there's no native solutions, anyone that is sufficiently bothered by this issue can use 3rd party warping solutions like people use for curved screen projector setups. There is a limit to what you can do after rendering. If you look at my triple screen screenshot, if you where to warp that...

Re: Multi Monitor Support

One must match real and rendering FOVs and the projection surface with the monitor surface for the best result. Other option would be to use a bit more complicated shape than cylinder to compensate for mismatched FOVs. But cylinder is good enough. I think it gives errors in the range of few percent...
