  1. I was at GHRVPK today and i asked. It is as Major duck says a holder for a cooking gas burner. I have to ask about how it is used but i think that MD's description sounds very plausible. The placement was because thats where they had room for it. I am courious, is it a model he is building?
  2. I asked the guys running our M41-DK1 and it is room for a small 230V Honda generator used for charging 4 of 6 turret batteries. You can see it in this video: In searching for M41-DK1 I have seen pictures where it is covered with canvas. (At least I assume that it is canvas.) Hopes that this helps you.
  3. New Aaben Hede 2019 videos from me. 18 pdr. Short version Gun zeroing. Centurion MK5/M2 DK and M41 DK1 Gun zeroing. Several types of Leopard 1 DK’s. Short version Enjoy
  4. A Yearly event where the Danish Army are showcasing their newest equipment and Historic vehicles are allowed to strut and show their stuff. Was cancelled 2020 due to Covid-19 I have just finnished the first of my videos. Sunday 23/6-2019 Nyborg Fortress 18 pdr. Cannon and their Saluting guild.

    My new Toy!

    I told earlier that I had the sim up and running with 4 screens with 4GB Ram. This is a video from that day. https://youtu.be/K4AtqhTQiW4 Workday 28/6-2020 at GHRVPK. To be seen: Leopard 1, M41 DK1, Centurion and Steel Beasts Pro PE simulator set up in a Leopard 1A3 procedures training turret. Warning! Loud at times. I decided to do a Ram upgrade and had hoped to find 2 4GB sticks, but I could only find 2 2GB sticks. It took a while to get them but on 14/7 I fought with installing them. You can read about that here: Changing the Displayport to HDMI cable got the system with 8GB Ram and all 4 screens running. Here is a video from the work at GHRVPK 19/7 2020. Centurion brake test and tucking in a Leopard 1. Also loud bits! Happy Simming Enjoy Yesterday I got all of the screens running on the Simulator. The extra 4GB ram did improve things but there are still some stuttering.
  6. Thank you Splash. I will look at them. Would it be okay with you if i update them and if i get a satisfying result share them with the community? Have a nice day. Happy Simming
  7. Wishing for crewable Danish Centurion MK5 2DK and M41 DK1 Inspired by this thread in the Mods section I would like to ask what kind of documentation you would need to be able to create the additions to the external model and the crew views of a no interior crewable version of the Centurion MK5 2DK? Also what you would need to be able to create the external model and crew views of a no interior crewable version of the M41 DK1 I have access to this fully operational Centurion MK5 2DK and also to this fully operational M41 DK1 Pictures are framegrabs from a video I shot at Åben Hede last year. I imagine a boatload of pictures, but do you have any preferences for camera settings and focal lengths that makes your work easier. What kind of sounds would you need for the M41 DK1? I imagine engine sounds but there are probably others than that. I imagine that you have the Centurion sounds covered. As for the technical specs, details and capacities, that should go through the proper channels. You have a much firmer grasp about that than I do. And of course you also need time and resources. Therefor I am only wishing. Happy Simming
  8. The question is what kind of documentation would be needed for the additions to the external model and the crew views of a no interior crewable version? I have access to this fully operational Centurion MK5 2DK Picture is a framegrab from a video I shot at Åben Hede last year. Happy Simming
  9. I have just looked at Dejawolf's template and the skin files for the shot and the shotkal in the game and to me the form look identical so it should still work today. As for the sceme itself, there have always been a lot of variation in the paint job on each camouflaged vehicle in the Danish Military. To me your skin looks fine. As it is not the correct model I would say that you are are only missing the Bridge classification. (The yellow circle with a number). In the linked to album below I have seen examples of 55, 60 and 61. You can see some of the scheme variations in this Facebook album. I do have access to this Centurion. I for one would like to get access to your skin. Happy Simming

    My new Toy!

    You would be very welcome. It will however be a good idea to let me know beforehand. It is possible to find our activity calenders on this page: https://ghrvpk.dk/?page_id=4 Click one of the AKOS XXXX links to get it for the relevant year. The next is in English for our non Danish reading readers. Everyone is welcome to visit us on Skruedag and Skruesøndag. On the days where Skruedag is followed by , Guide there is a Guide present, ready to show around and tell about what we have and what we do. At Åben Hus we normally show everything we have and do an attack demo and other activities. Currently due to an unfortunate accident last year, only maintenance related driving is allowed for all Danish Military owned historic vehicles. Such as brake tests and steering controls. Most of the vehicles we have are on loan from the Danish Military. Skruedag is our Tuesday workday, where there usually is activity from around 14:00 to about 19:00-20:00 Skruesøndag is our once a month weekend workday. Usually activity starts at around 10:00 and goes on to about 16:00-18:00. Other activities listed are, pending public driving permissions, out of house events, where there can be static displays, performances, get a ride and other stuff. Some of them are internal activity announcements and others are notification of other's use of the Army training area and facilties that we are a part of.

    My new Toy!

    Status report: Tuesday 14 days ago I got the system up and running with 4 screens. 2 on the inside with one running the Gunners view and the other showing the external view and the 2 outside showing those same views. The external view shows some lack and stuttering, especially when there are explosions. I am not surprised at that as the PC only had 4 GB ram but the PC is certainly showing its age. I will bend the mounts for the top screen so that it will no longer get the glare. It is nice to get entertainment while working. These 2 passed by while I was testing and oh how I love those sounds. I have gotten 4 GB ram more and and after a very long hard fight, with putting in and pulling out rams and graphics card multiple times, I finally got it running with all 8 GB ram. I was standing with my left foot on the horizontal bar on the lover middle right And I was resting my right knee either on the lover egde facing us between the wires and the bolthead or behind the bolthead in the space behind the fence. It is the worst place I have ever done PC maintenance. The knee is still sore. But! Now the behind top screen is not getting any signal! Blargh! I have tried replugging it multiple times and finally I gave up. It is plugged into a DisplayPort and this is the 6. I have had trouble with. 2 on one of my main GFX cards and 3 on the other at home and now this. All 5 at home was randomly loosing signal so the screen would just randomly turn black and sometimes it would blink on and off. I really hate Displayports. I will try to solve it by trying a DVI to HDMI cable on Sunday. With regards to getting the player tank to be invulnerable while the enemy is shooting at it. I could not get Enemy tank as impotent to work. They would just sit there and ignore the player tank. The closest I have gotten is activating Repair all and Revive. However at certain times with multiple hits or heavier weapons the tank will be destroyed and the player will be put into external view. I have partially solved that by setting certain units to not shoot back. Especially helicopters. I have also done my best to stop infantry from appearing when enemy units are hit, but sometimes they still appear. Fortunately I can work with it. so as long as we are running this old version on this relic of a PC, I will not do much about it. The entertainment value is still great and the setting we have here raise the experience to a whole new level. I had 2 trying it the other day and they had a great time and boy did they catch on quick. An unexpected bonus with the exterior view screen inside the turret, was that the one waiting was helping the one in the hotseat with finding targets. Thank you so very much eSim Games for creating this great sim. Happy Simming
  12. You could look at the tutorial here. In addition you need to install the VIGEM CORE provider. Here is a install guide that includes a download link: https://github.com/snoothy/ucr/wiki/Core_ViGEm Once installed you should be able to chose your Xbox 360 or DS4 controller as input. I have not tried this as I do not have any of them. I have used UCR to emulate output as a Xbox 360 controller for Witcher III. If you get it to work, then I would very much appreciate if you shared a writeup, that I could include in the tutorial. I hope it helps. Happy Simming
  13. The Danish Army has begun training on their new Leopard 2 A7 Great video and great sound.

    We love photos

    We have had our first Sunday workday today, at the GHRVPK Tank farm since the Corona crisis started. It is nice with some life. Mowag Eagle I M24 Chaffee and a privately owned truck. Centurion Mk5 2DK M41 DK1 I have at last gotten our Steel Beast “Sim in a Leo turret” up and running. I will be posting more about that, but I have a family visit during the coming week to handle first. It very much ads to the environment when you have these babies passing while running the sim. Hee, Hee, Hee, Hee. I feel all warm and tingly inside. Happy Simming
  15. Thank you Ssnake. Tuesday I got our current Simulator system up and running with 4 screens and Sunday is going to be dedicated to get SB to run with 2 views on those 4 screens. I know that the PC is capable of it as I have had a host and a client running on it with 2 screens working. I will also be playing around with the impotent settings for the enemy’s in the Gunner scenario. "Automatizing this on the same computer is going to be difficult (="probably impossible"), since many settings are stored in a common options file. Other than that, much of what you're asking for is possible with the classroom version, but not with SB Pro PE." I was suspecting that that would be the answer and I can work with that. I mainly asked in case that I had missed a couple of options for easing the workflow, before I do a How I do multiple screens and views for SB tutorial. "Also, most of this we developed well after version 3.0. I suppose we'll have to donate you a few semi-up-to-date computers." I don’t know where to put myself and I have a very hard time expressing my gratitude. We would be very grateful for a computer donation to the GHRVPK simulator. I am thinking it would be okay with just one computer. I now know how to work with it and I can do a guide, so my fellow GHRVPK’ers can learn it to. There is also the available space in the turret to consider and as I am using 2 PC’s with a KVM switch system both at work and at home, I also know how much extra work that can create especially when troubleshooting. There are also the temptation of many keys and buttons to curious fingers to keep in mind. If it could have a second free PCIe 16 slot and a free PCIe 1 slot, the 1GB ATI Radeon and 2 GB GT 710 card’s from our existing computer could be used to run 2 of the 4 screens we have. Have a great day Happy Simming
