Sensei,
I camp for 3 days next to my mailbox and wait for the new version. If the new version tomorrow or after tomorrow? ;)

Seriously, I'm already excited about the "old" simulator, but your video topt everything I have ever seen.

You really are the Sensei of the art of 747-Simulator

Many greetings from Germany (near EDBC)

Three days won't help. It won't be this year, so we have to be patient... :-)

Cheerio to EDBC. Thanks!

I just uploaded it to Youtube. The frame rate there is a bit slower and the resolution is reduced from 576 to 480p. HD was not available, this is probably because the original file is not in HD.

Just added Mozart to the video on Youtube. Surprisingly, the music matches the video here and there. Whereever synchronity occurs, it's pure coincidence.

When I'm retired, perhaps I'll be creating my own symphony and a special flight deck video suitable for this very music.

Mozart? Mozart???

What happened to "Shine On You Crazy Diamond"?

Which is, among other things, a thinly veiled allegory on the simulation software development process especially in the shape of HH's ordeal, even with oblique allusions to PS1 (dev) times and the unknown PSX release date, etc. etc.

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
. . .
You were caught on the cross fire of childhood and stardom,
. . .
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light. [!!!]
. . .
Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter [!!!]
. . .
Nobody knows where you are, how near or how far.
. . .
Pile on many more layers...
. . .
Come on you miner for truth and delusion [!!!]
. . .


See what I mean?

:-) I see. But there are two problems: Pink Floyd isn't in the free library, and that song is dedicated to (or reminds me of) Syd Barret who ended up in the madhouse!

Better give me a violin, I'm one of those guys who don't want to have a wooden block between the string and the finger tip :-)

I must say, this Mozart stuff works only well if you hear it LOUD, as loud as the environment of a real flight deck in flight.

That's awesome Hardy,

hopefully we will get to see it soon. Not sure if you should be mucking around with the thrust levers of a jumbo like that at 500" ;)

Hardy, judging from what I read (which is of course only
a fraction of the whole thing), it seems you could need
some rest. To me it looks like you have been working non-stop
for the last 3 years and there is at least another year ahead.
We all appreciate your work, but no one is interested in
a Sensei with a Karoshi! :-)
Take some time off, a month earlier or later wouldnt matter,
would it?

Oh no - PSX is entering the Social Networks. Next there'll be a fanpage on Facebook. Just kidding, uploading it to a more widespread community is not a bad idea.

You could take a look at Vimeo. In my opinion, it's more user friendly, has a better interface and more options in general. For information on video and audio formats, look here: http://vimeo.com/help/compression

Vimeo has also a great help section.

Thanks for that one! The PSX A60 video with Vivaldi, if I may breathe a wish :mrgreen:

Hi Hardy,
Lurking here - keep checking progress. Great job. Loved the video. Looking forward to the sim (whenever it is ready).

Thank you for the good comments, gentlemen.

Frumpy, I sleep well and a lot on a regular basis, this helps.

2flame, no worries, no Aerowinx on facebook, that would be a tad too much :-) (wouldn't it, Matt?).

Hardy, one question regarding the GUI / interaction design:

It seems to me that one has multiple options of turning knobs, moving levers et cetera. The mouse cursor either changes or gets an extra symbol added. Would you mind to post a few screenshots of these various cursors? Would you further mind to explain which options of mouse interaction the PSX jockey will have?

Best regards
Dennis

There are ca. 50 different mouse icons, I'd like to keep them secret for a while :-) I can tell you what they indicate, for example, whether the button under the cursor is an alternate action or momentary action switch, for the latter also if it's a hold type or click type switch, then there are tips indicating a switch guard etc. There are icons for rotating knobs, inner ring, outer ring ... etc. ... for CB in, out, collar setting ... for dragging a lever, or a speedbug ... for yoke and tiller ... for panel panning ... etc.


Cheers,

Well, 50 icons is way more than I expected. They seem to be designed very well, so I'm not worried that they couldn't be clear enough. Very cool. I suppose the available options do always depend on the control type, so I withdraw my question and am looking forward to see further videos or screenshots or whatever. The GUI concept of PSX is in my opinion the best I've seen on a flight simulator so far. This is keeping me curious :D

Apropos Aerowinx on facebook. Geocaching has an Aerowinx (found on Google page 1, keyword Aerowinx). But that's not me. I wonder who that is.

@Hardy: By incident, I have an account at geocaching.com as I use to do some treasure hunting in the summer time ;) So I looked up his profile, a quite active user as it seems. Shall I contact him for you? By the way, he seems to be from Germany, too, as most of his caches were located near Wolfsburg.

If you could do this, thanks! It would be nice if he or she could use a different name. Aerowinx is a registered trademark.
