I'll try to hurry up. I'm in the final stages of designing the ECS panel. Looks nice so far. I just have to add eye candy stuff here and there. Preview follows very soon...

PS: and thanks retro, for the tape info.

So here is the preview of the latest ECS graphics...

First, the reference:



The new right hand side panel:



The new panel which is supposed to be next to the right hand side panel:



It's still a work in progress. Takes more time than I thought (as usual). Especially the rotaries, suit gas inverter, liquid garment cooling/cabin recirculation assembly graphics and other details have to be finished.

I hope you like it.

The right hand side panel now is finished. The new panel next to it still needs to be finished (not too much work though). Next and final step: extending all LM panels to 1920 x 1440 pixels. Then we should have all Lunar Module controls and switches available. At least optically. Still lots of coding required I guess.

@ dseagrav

if you don't mind I commit the new ECS graphics when all other LM panels are finished as well (i.e. extended to 1920 x 1440 pixels). But let me know if you need the new ECS panels now. In this case I'll commit them as soon as they are complete.

Like it,Na- Love  it !

Thanks Happy

Well, I'm still waiting for the range rate commit, so I can wait for yours too.
I'll be out of town next weekend anyway.

I did commit the changed range rate scale.

Please let me know in case something on the bitmaps has to be changed; or send me a private message, describing required changes or changes someone has done. I have to do the changes on the original bitmaps as well, to keep everything up to date.

I noticed that there are changes on the main panel. It's only the range rate gauge I guess, i.e. the removed scale in the background. There is also black pixels on the upper left hand corner now (originated during changing the range rate gauge I think). Not a big issue. It just went into my eyes Very Happy But since I'll commit completely revised panel bitmaps soon (due to the 1920 pixel wide screen issue) it does not matter in this case.

I recompiled with it and everything is ok. You moved downed the NM instead of raising the FT, so the offsets was still good in the code.

dseagrav, I'm not touching the code it for now, so you can go ahead with your work.  Any change you can commit your fixes on the RR self test, I'd like to play with it.

Are/will you work on the Mark X/Y handling of the AOT? I could look into it, but I dont what to step on the stuff you are doing.

Very nice work on the new 2D panels, Moonwalker!  Thumbs Up

My Project Apollo work in progress:
* New detailed Lunar Module Ascent stage with virtual cockpit (VC currently planned as eye candy only) 18 % done

My Project Apollo work to be continued:
* new Service Module SPS engine bell
* various Saturn V textures, exhaust textures
* SIM Bay for the SM


My long-term plans are to create a:
* New detailed Lunar Module descent stage (eventually models of all flown LM's)
* New F-1 engines for the S-1C stage showing the foil (batting) insulation
* New LUT and launch pad (if nobody else does it)

Is RCS system in LEM working? How to activate them to extinguish RCS A REG and RCS B REG lights?
What means LM LGC ERROR:RESET?
And how to turn on AGC and DSKY? It looks like not working.

I am using broken Apollo 11 VAGC scenario.

Yeah, the LM still has a lot of development left to do. IDK if the RCS is actually working on that vehicle, or even the computer.

Hi desagrav. Hope things are getting better for you. If possible, can you commit or provide the changes that you did to avoid the 1210 alarm. I'd like to get back on this.

I'm still working on it; I've only figured out the RR half, the LR still doesn't work. The hard part was figuring out that you get alarm 1210 NOT just when there's a conflict for the CDU, but ALSO when the IO operation fails. To read the RR, the LGC will put a channel number on the bottom three bits of channel 13, then light the Radar Activity bit. This causes the range unit to send back the data via the pulse train, after which it generates EXACTLY ONE radar interrupt. If you interrupt twice, you'll get a 510. The LGC will then change its requested channel number but it WON'T drop the Radar Activity bit! When it does that, the pulse train starts again and you generate EXACTLY ONE radar interrupt. The actual send sequence seems to be caused by having a new channel and activity bit pair.

This works for the RR, but when I try the same stuff for the LR, I get a 1210 again. I think it's looking for another bit to set. The LGC uses the same routine to do all radar IO, so it's hard for me to pick out exactly what it expects without being able to read the LGC state in real time.

I'll have to look at the state of my copy. I don't remember what I was doing.

The RCS should work at least under LGC control, I was using it to test.

Does anyone know if the latest updates to the LM are reflected in the most recently posted set of modules (20120715)?
If not can someone build me an updated set of modules??
