X Plane 12, 3d cockpit view problem with Pimax Crystal

1 Monat 3 Tage her

I have all your latest versions for X Plane 11 and 12. Fantastic as usual - thank you. In VR using Primax Crystal with X Plane 12 the default 3d cockpit view is about 5m infront of the helicopter in all versions. This is not so in X Plane 11 with your helicopters or indeed with other helicopters in 11 or 12.
I have been tearing my hair out trying to get round the problem. It only happens in VR and with the EC135. I would appreciate you checklng that it is not a Rotorsim proplem.
Many thanks
ps You should really charge for such a great simulation

Very strange.
I don't know your VR headset. But there are no different cockpits for 3D and VR in X-Plane. So, in my opinion, something like this can't even be explained by a driver problem.

I don't think the problem is on our side. But please upload X-Plane's log file from a flight in which this effect occurred.

Hi RotorSim,

Thank you help in this matter.

Attached is the log file you requested

The headset I use is a Pimax Crystal, and my computer specs are:
GPU NVIDA GeForce RTX4090
CPU 13th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-13900K   3.00 GHz
RAM 64.0 GB (63.7 GB usable)
 
The problem does not occur with X Plane 11 for any aircraft.
The problem only occurs in X Plane 12 with the EC135 (all variants).
I have tried many ways to try to identify the cause but to no avail and appreciate you looking to see if it is related to the EC135 in any way.

I am an ex-helicopter pilot and take flight simulation very seriously, flying you EC135 in as realistic a manner as possible. I have attached an extract from my simulator log book to show what I mean. Your helicopter is fantastic, even with the problems X Plane 12 caused you.

I have a work around for the problem using a hotspot view with VR Tools which is OK for most of my flying but makes one particular activity far from ideal, namely underslung loads. In the simulator one cannot use the mirrors as in the real world, so I use an external view from the rear as a substitute. Where in the real world I would use the mirrors, in the simulator I flick to the external view. The technique requires the ability to flick between the 3d cockpit view and the external view instantly - which can be done. However, the use of a hotspot to achieve a 3d cockpit view does not work as it takes quite a time for the view to change.

Again, thank you for such a great simulation and for you help in the matter, although I suspect that the problem may  lies elsewhere.

Kind regards
Ian Durston

We discussed the issue again as a team. There is no difference between the version for X-Plane 11 and X-Plane 12, nor are the objects defined contrary to the standard. From our point of view, everything is correct.

Can you please upload a screenshot? We would like to have a visual impression of the problem.

Thank you for your prompt reply.

Attached are two screen shots. The one just showing concrete is the 3d cockpit view. The other one is with me turning round to look at the helicopter from this 3d view. This indicates the 3d cockpit view is in front of the helicopter and about the correct height for a 3d cockpit view.

I stress that this only happens X Plane 12, in VR, only with the EC135 and the Pimax headset. It did not happen with my old HP Reverb G2 headset. This suggests that it might be the headset alone at fault. However, as it only happens with the EC135 there is a possibility that there is a compatibility issue with the the EC135 and Pimax.

Most perplexing and frustrating as I have the best sim helicopter and a high end VR headset, the combination of which makes for a brilliant experience.

I appreciate you taking the time to investigate the issue - thank you.

Regards Ian Durston
