EZDOK 2.5 & v4

Recommended Posts

I need some input on those who are using ezdok 2.5 with p3d v4. Is it ready? Is it easy to set up the effects.

I know I can't import my sets from the last version, so I'll need some help.

Thanks.

Can't give you anyone because i installed the beta over my 2.0 version, registered it in v4 and it worked ;-)

Just don't forget to delete the original key assingments in v4 as required.

Don't expect problems, it works in v4. And the new user interface makes it easier and more intuitive.

The simple answer is, yes, it works. Have you used EZdok v1? If so, you won't have any trouble getting to grips with v2. It's pretty much the same thing, with some new features and a nicer interface.

My only concern is adding effects. I hope I don't have to spend all day with one plane.

Yes, I am a v1 aficionado and understood it well.

Hmmm, I was wondering whether to go ChasePlane or EZDOK V2 but I see as an owner of EZDOK V1 I get V2 for $12. Decision made and despite the discount I think that's the way I would have gone.:biggrin:

I havent had much time to play with it on mine, but it seems to be working.. i think the effect for engine shake seems a bit strong or is that more realistic.. at first i thought i had visual stutters, when i turned the effect off everything was smooth?

If you open a new plane EDZDOK 2.5 takes the cameras from the aircraft.cfg and adds them to the interface, very handy!

I'm not having much luck with that feature.. at least not with say the Ants Airplanes P92 Eaglet.. i even browsed to the aircraft.cfg.. but for some reason when i click through the various cameras they dont do anything.. external ones result in a view "inside" the paneling of the aircraft with a giant square at the center of the plane.  I also cant "find" the ezca window .. often have to kill it and relaunch it because it wont come into focus anywhere on screen.. and the num lock 2 edit then seems to not allow camera movement to adjust camera views and save them.. just a few of my observations in my limited time so far.

I found it easier to add and change effects. It's a good user friendly interface I believe. It also comes with links to tutorials, although they are in Russian by the Dev, it has English sub titles.

I love it, I have both chase plane and ezdok2 and I always go back to ezdok2 as I believe it has better camera effects.

Same here. I actually regret buying Chaseplane.

Is it true that ChaplePlane is more heavy on FPS than EZDOK ?

To be honest I did not notice a difference in FPS. I lock my refresh to 30hz and my FPS is steady at 30 with either chase plane or ezdok2

I bought Chaseplane too and went back to EZDok.
But keep in mind: Chaseplane is still under construction, so we only can make a final verdict when CP officially has been released.

Even before the release of version 2.6 is scheduled to make import of cameras from a version of EZdok Camera V. 1. But this is only camera with no effects, because the new version is much improved generator effects and is incompatible with the old version of EZCA.

In any case, the effects settings are simple and intuitive.

In the next version 2.6 will add "Effects Sets Manager", which will greatly simplify the effects settings if you have installed a lot of planes.

Still soon enough we plan to release an English manual in the PDF file.

This one was a no brainer decision. I love v1 and I just wanted community input. This video was helpful:

Well I got it and installed it.So far so good.:biggrin: Its some time since I used EZDOK but apart from the new UI it seems fairly familiar. I particularly liked the head camera tilling in a bank. All round it has added much immersion. I was just curious if anyone has used it with HTC VIVE and to what end? I nolonger use TrackIR and I am moving toward VR and am considering the VIVE does EZDOK 2 work with the VIVE or is EZDOK redundant in VR?

So is EZDOK really, being close to official 2.5 release, it has not yet been released and v2 has been in development also for a long time.

That said, I will compare both when they are both done.

This is what EXDOK Build 21 did to my P3d V4  .  . .

No more outside textures in PMDG 777

I see you have the screenshot that illuminates the lock over the world's cameras.
Therefore, there are problems with the functionality of EZCA. This can happen if the process isn't running resh.exe (providing work with Ezca in the environment of 64 bits).

Open windows task Manager and view running resh.exe. Check the file resh.exe in the folder EZCA2. Check this file in quarantine antivirus. Be sure to get the Ezca files to the antivirus exceptions.
