Rain on one side?

Postby D-ECHO » Sat Nov 19, 2016 9:00 am

Hi while developing the EA next I faced some problems with rain I previously also noted on other aircraft:
-Rain only on the right side:

-Rain in aircraft:

Is there any possibility to fix this?

It's indeed a very long standing issue (2012!). Feel free to add to the ticket if you have additional info (or just to give it a bump again) https://sourceforge.net/p/flightgear/codetickets/596/

The thing gets triggered by old OpenGL code in FG interacting badly with OSG. After having tinkered with this for a while, I have come to the conclusion it's one of the rendering things which just need to be *not* triggered because they can't be fixed while staying sane.

The old code which triggers this is usually clipping (of instruments, HUD,...) used somewhere in the cockpit, and I believe solving the same problem using other techniques which are integrated with OSG (canvas for instance) would not trigger it.

You're correct Thorsten, in my case it was caused by using osgtext in the zkv1000. Removing that made it raining fine again though the PFD/MFD now has a lot less info.
