I just took a raw video of the iMac screen using a Canon XL1s video camera. This is photographic material, no screenshots, that is, there are real photo exposure effects, i.e. dark areas are too dark, bright ones too bright etc. Also, the resolution is very low, and the film frame rate is only 25 fps. But I think you still might get an impression of the smooth motion of PSX. If you take the motion of that video, and take the 1:1 sharpness of the screenshots in the other forum threads, and combine both in your mind, then you might imagine the real PSX in motion :-)

Edit: Meanwhile there are two versions, the first one has a better video quality.

Version 1 on aerowinx.com
720 x 576, 25 fps

Version 2 on Youtube
600 x 480, less than 20 fps

I really enjoyed looking at that video! A pleasant 2012 taster.

Absolutely brilliant!

The working radar is great and that is just one thing.

As I said before Hardy, I can't wait to start connecting it to my hardware ;)

Many greetings

Hi Hardy,

watching this Video I only had one question: Why still Alpha Version?

This seems to be a BIG understatement. Is there still so much stuff to do?

Hammerhart! Its really great. Thanks for publishing this.

Hardy and "old" PS friends,

First, Happy, healthy, and successful 2012 to ALL.

I am blown away by the video!!!!. Thanks very much for posting this Hardy. I have been following this forum with great anticipation for years, and now it appears that the end of your development process might be in sight!!!. All I can say is that I am patiently waiting!!!! and looking forward to this masterpiece!!! If you are looking for an additional tester, pls let me know, I am now retired, and even though I'm teaching part time, have three days a week to offer!!! I'd be most honored and happy to help in whatever way I can!!

Cheers to all,

Paul Benoit

PS Just read a testing topic below and see you wre all set!!!. Way back a few years, i worked with Ralph Tofflemire on his wonderful RFP 747-200 project. My role was to prepare the documentation, user manual, tutorials and such. Lots of effort and lots of typing, and lots of fun. I'd like to volunteer to support this effort if you have a requirement. I'm not a pilot, but a good documentation person, and have a full set of 744 manuals, and I can even type, albeit slowly.!!!!, I have a Mac Mini, multiple PCs, and an iPad, so I'm well equipped!!!

Cheers
Paul

Hi Hardy,

woow, this preview video is the best a year can start with!

If I would be George Clooney, I would say: PSX, what else? 8)

Thanks for sharing this video, and all your work!

unbearable to watch ... an ache in the chest.)

Yes, absolut incredible.
But for me much more incredible is, that this masterpiece has done one man alone!
Hardy du bist scho a Hund ;-)

If it helps any to ease the pain, the video does not do justice to the real PSX.
What I am trying to say is the clarity of the panels vs other sims on the market is like putting reading glasses on. If you know what I mean. 8)
Very hard to show this on a low resolution upload

This isn't meant to be a critique, but the thing in your video that seems to interrupt the feeling of immersion is that the camera (or the image) doesn't bounce up and down in turbulence, or overshoot its target due to inertia, or respond to changing G-forces as the plane accelerates (including in turns). If that visual effect were there, it would be hard to say that you weren't watching a real aircraft cockpit. Again, nice job.
