Default [REL] OLC - Sale - Kombimod : Big Dials for OLC-GUI 1.2.3 for GWX 2.0

Hi Folks,
this mod combines the following:

- the new interface called "OLC - GUI" made by onelifecrisis (Version 1.2.3 for GWX 2.0)
- the big dials (course and rudder really big) originally made by Sale for his "SlideOut Anzeigen" with
or without a backgroundpanel (see screenshots)
- the glasses with reflections and indicators made by Testpilot19786 for his "DIALS-SLIDEOUT-Konsole 1.1 für GWX 2.0"

THX to them for permission to use the best of them and put it together for this tiny Add-On.


Installation:

You must have installed GWX 2.0 and the OLC-GUI 1.2.3 (with double mast tool) first, then:

- the mod is JSGME-ready, just unpack and put the directories into your MOD-Folder
- always enable "Latemail SaleOLC123GWX20_core_files" first
- then select the version you prefer (see screens) and enable
- in the documentation-folder you will find screenshots of all four versions

- the secondary dials are available via slide out when you touches the left screen border

Tested with:
- SH3 - Stock
- Patch 1.4b
- GWX 2.0
- OLC GUI 1.2.3 for GWX 2.0

If you have any problems, please report it in this thread or via PM.


have Fun

Thanks!

Just a question... does this need the original OLC GUI 1.2.3. core files (and double mast values)? I am a bit confused by the size... will try and see

Slideout is the magic formula.

I think you got it now, first GWX, then OLC-GUI, then my Kombimod

and about the size, well ......... big dials produce big files ....

Great work Latemail,

I have been itching to get into OLC 1.2.3 and now it is possible again.

Thank you.

Latemail,

With this version of the kombimod installed the pop up fuel, air and oxy guages are all greyed out. Needles are there but the guage backs are not.

Eveything else seems to be working ok. Sorry ... have isolated it to your mod by experimentation unless I'm doing something wrong with the installation.

Latemail,

I should also add that I have tried with the dark (both with and without panel) but not with either version of the light.

Just in case it helps.

Default little Updates!!

Hi folks,

there are some notations to this mod ... here are the solutions ......


1. some Kaleuns are looking for the "inner compass ring" for better navigation



- disable the mod (core files and preferred version)
- get the file with the new inner compass ring and replace the original file "Mods/Latemail/SaleOLC123GWX20_core_files/data/Menu/OLC/BigCourseTop.tga"
- enable the mod again (core files and preferred version)


2. the compass pointer is not really accurate and also hides to much of the scale



- disable the mod (core files and preferred version)
- get the file with the new course pointer and replace the original file "Mods/Latemail/SaleOLC123GWX20_core_files/data/Menu/OLC/NewCourse.tga"
- enable the mod again (core files and preferred version)


THX for using the mod and giving some feedback ........ BY

Just so I get this right... your mod is supposed to bring up the showed controll(your screenshots) as soon as you hit the left boarder with the cursor... well if so it does not work for me.

The showed controlles pop up with the button from OLC but then I miss the depth controll bexond 25m... etc etc.

My install procedure:

GWX
OLC
your mod - core files
your mod - the " "Latemail SaleOLC123GWX20_bright_oP""

well... any suggestions?
