ECZA is back in development! v1.18.3 out, v2.0 on the horizon!

Recommended Posts

I tried searching, but didn't find any post about this, so if there are any others about the same topic, please close this one.

 

Anyway, the author and developer Marniftarr seems to have recovered from his illness and is back developing this brilliant peace of software again. He is currently very busy fixing things to work with P3D v2.4, Windows 8.1 and fixing all kinds of bugs and also reports the long-sougth-after v2.0 is very close to release as well! v1.18.4 will be released tomorrow 6. january if all goes well in the testing.

 

I personally stopped using ECZA when I couldnt get it to work correct in Win 8.1(middle mouse button not working), but with a little help I finally got it working as it should again. v.1.18.4 also promises to fix this without doing the workaround I'm using now.

 

Very glad to have this back in the sim, hasn't been the same without:-)

 

Heres the link to the beta-topic;

Must-have add on, without doubt. If I can't use EZdok - then my flightsim career is over.

There is an alternative......in fact, the camera movements are better with opus than Ezca anyway. Much more realistic imho

I'm aware of Opus and abscent ECZA, I have been using the Opus cameramode alongside ASN, but wether its better or worse will always be a subjective matter, I for one, prefer EZCA. That being said, lets keep this thread Opus-free:-)

Ver 1.18.4  (beta)

 

Per the developer notes:

Important. This is beta software. Do not use if you are uncomfortable with beta software.

 

I will wait for the ver 2

EZDok is as good as you make your configuration files for your aircraft.   I consider EZDok to be one of the top 3 essential add-ons for FSX/P3D.  I would not fly without it.   It is good to see it is finally under development again!  Exciting times!  2015 is off to a good start for the sim community!

I gave 1.18.2 and 1.18.3 beta a try.. I had been running with version 1.17 p3d beta just fine.. (p3d v2.4)

 

I run Windows 8.1 U1, x64.. with 1.17 i did not have to run it as admin..

 

I was getting an exception error (and file was greyed out), if not running as admin with .2 or .3 betas.. if i did run as admin, i wouldnt get the exception but i couldnt move the positioning of the window with arrows or PU/PD etc in edit mode..

 

So at least for my system, I gave up and went back to 1.17 since it worked ok for me.

 

I havent tried .4 yet though.

 

EDIT:  Tried .4 and it simply crashes for me, either with or without run as admin.

Running 18.3 here in P3Dv2.4 without any apparent problems.  As suggested I applied beta to freshly downloaded 1.15 and followed installation instructions to the letter. Much fun.

 

Version 2 will be released shortly.  As I understand it purely sorting out any remaining bugs but adding little, if any, in the way of new features.

Interesting....for me, I installed 1.15 and then 1.84 and I get a message that "FSX could not be found"...however, EZCA works fine, it is just the message at the beginning. I can live with that!

Just to add ... I am now getting R6025 run-time errors.   :(

 

I don't know whether the culprit is Ezdok (beta) or the fact I turned off Tessellation.

I stayed away from the 1.18.4 update since 1.18.3 works flawless in P3D on my system.

I have used OpusFSI camera for several months now. I think I will stay with it, because the handling is more intuitive than EZdok.

I am still using Ezdok v1.17 (P3D Beta).

 

I turned Tessellation OFF (P3Dv2.4)  and did get an R6023 error on the test flight approach.

 

So, I now have it back ON and no error on my last approach.

After having tried the built in camera setup in X-Plane, I can't understand why EZdok can't get to work the same way. In XPX you don't have to delete keys assignments and assign new commands to them, you just assign different view with a single key on the num keypad, I know you will say that it's just as easy in EZdok, but I haven't got mine to work properly even after seing different tuts on you tube etc,
