Hello All,

I'm updating DGIV,UMMU, UCGO, OrbiterSound to work on  jarmonik's DX9 and Asmi's DX11 client
as well as clearing some 2010 bug. I would need serious beta tester to check if all work nicelly.

I added also some features as 4MFD in DGIV when 1920 screen and some other stuff.

Jarmonik's DX9 client can be found here:
http://orbiter-forum.com/showthread.php?t=18431

Asmi's DX11 client can be found here:
http://www.orbiter-forum.com/showthread.php?t=26147

Please write me a PM on this forum if you are interested.

Best

Dan

I really want to test it. I'm doing some flights now and I would test dgiv in many cases ;)
I use only D3D9Client.
Thank you for updating dgiv :)

I'm developing D3D11 client for Orbiter and so would like to give it a try in this client as well as in D3D9. So please count me in too :)

Sorry, I'm not a beta tester but I would like to say that it's a good update!:)

And I have a question: The spotlight will function with the option "Local light source"?

Thanks!:)

Yep, with nosecone and outter door open you have a local light emitted from airlock.
Nice to illuminate the ISS while aproaching.

I planned to add a lot of other local light (landing gear, thrusters) but yet they don't illuminate
ground and they are per vertex illumination so the bad result really doesn't worth the cpu cycle imho.

Check this out (make sure you watch it in HD!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9Ky8jHHX6o
And we've got local lighting support for the ground in our plan (probably it will come with terrain implementation).

P.S. Sorry for the off-topic

By that I mean that you are free to add beacons and local lights - right now DX11 client supports up to 12 beacons, but if neccessary this number can be increased. And the same goes for local lights. I think enabling local lights only when outer airlock is open doesn't make too much sence since this light is useful for docking while in the eclipse if the planet, and no one in his(her) right mind will dock with open airlock :) So I'd rather prefer a light that can be turned on/off with a button somewhere on the panel.

Yep, but that was the faster way of doing it :)
Else I should rework the model, rework the panel, add code and more code.

I'll see , I have plenty of dll to rework (ISS, ISRU, Prelude II, Shuttla... other ?)

OK, so how about enabling it when you open nosecone? It won't require any buttons and yet still be much more useful :)

I wanted to keep some realism, there is light only in the airlock, but I think I can add instead some fake light coming from the airlock ring by editing the model.

So, good idea, I'll have a look.

Per-pixel lighting looks so great! But I'm pretty sure it's hitting hard on my hardware...

Hi Dan.
If wanted, I can support for D3D9 client - however starting mid-April only, and on best effort approach only.

My special focus in beta testing will be on 3D stereo visualization (with NVidia shutter glasses) and 3-monitor surround view.
(see my posting http://www.orbiter-forum.com/showthread.php?p=252432&postcount=6 )

Regards - Robert S.

contributions so far: "21 new sounds for apollo" - hence status "young recruit" maybe misleading ;)

Hi,

I hope to release before mid april so it will be too late but if by any chance this is not the case you'll be welcome of course.

Best

Dan

Ah ya see....The world gets in the way for me, and Dan comes back while I'm not watching and makes tweaks to everything! All of you beta testers out there better be giving good feedback.
