I wonder if legoboy actually integrated the canvas panel code in Stuarts recently published version of the EC145? Note that Stuarts recent version does not yet have the Canvas panels but the "old 2D" panels (XML, fast, but with some other side effects..).

I could recently improve the Canvas performance a bit by using SVG group animations and by reducing the nesting of Nasal function callbacks. Still I receive 60fps constant frame rate (with a 28ms max. frame delay) with the 2D panels compared to only 30fps (40ms max.delay) with the Canvas/Nasal panels. (To remove scenery side effects on performance my "test environment" for this is a "minimal" scenery, sitting on a ship at lat/lon=0/0, daylight, with no clouds in the sky. btw: the terrain height map also disabled for these tests)

Any hints on the Canvas/Nasal code or would you need a working aircraft model to analyse it?

Oh: I see -- sorry, I did not see that it was 2D and not canvas. It would be easier to have a working aircraft, but I'll take a look, regardless and see what I can see.

Don't see anything obvious. Having a working aircraft installation would make it easier to test.

The ec145 runs for all fguk pilots on Windows, Mac and Linux so what stops your one from running?

I'm talking about one that has the canvas installed.

Thank you for taking a look into the Canvas code! I will supply a test version when I have a first consolidated version of the Canvas displays ready and come back to you. I think we should just take care to avoid different (incomplete) versions of the a/c "flying" around. I may share this via a link in PM.

No more raining into my cockpit!

I have not really resolved the performance issues but maybe its not so much of an issue on better machines. Just try.

I am sorry - I was meant to be checking it for you but was rather swamped this past month. I'll do it first thing on Monday...

Never mind. Just to avoid confusion: This latest post is just the panels with more features but with no change in the general concept, for Stuart to integrate in the main model. What I sent to you via PM is a -work in progress- full aircraft model to check on potential Canvas performance pitfalls.

Got it installed and sure enough I don't need to wear my waterproofs while in the cockpit now.

Problem though, after installing, the chopper wont start any more.

Ooops..

Flightgear not starting or engines not starting?

I took a look last night with a clean install of ec145 v1.1 (my Canvas code is based on this). Engines did start (using autostart). I would need a copy of ec145 v1.2 to try it, but could not connect to fguk.eu to download it (BREXIT ..?).

Stuart,

I tried with v1.2 and for me it does start the engines (autostart) and it flies. However, I get tons of error messages (possibly interference between my and your new code parts), that I will try to resolve.

Let's have a further look after that.

I think this happened before, and it was a stupidly simple thing but I cant remember what that thing was.
