Good work! I also use this option cabview for steam locomotives in the case of a reverse view.
The front view is the view along the tender backwards.
The left view is the original front view and the right view is again a view along the tender backwards, but on the stoker man side.
All elements were moved to the left view (ex front) using the parameter ORTSCabviewpoint (1), but it does not work for one.

Coincidentally, this is a typical element of steam locomotives - a firebox.
The usual code entry is:

Firebox (
Type ( FIREBOX FIREBOX )
Position ( 1 350 80 128 )
Graphic ( "fire.ace" )
FuelCoal ( "coal.ace" )
)


Would it also be possible to include this element in the control with the ORTSCabviewpoint (1) parameter?

In the meantime, I helped with the static texture of fire.ace and the spare workaround:
Lever (
Type ( FIREBOX FIREBOX )
Position ( 1 350 80 128 )
Graphic ( "fire.ace" )
Style ( NONE )
NumFrames ( 1 1 1 )
NumPositions ( 0 )
ORTSCabviewpoint ( 1 )
)

Yes, you are right. I forgot to add the feature to the firebox control. I'll add it in next ORNYMG release.

I also plead for the DialClock parameter. It doesn't work properly either.
I use it, for example, for historical registration speedometers (Hasler Bern)

The firebox control can now be inserted in side views with ORNYMG 117. The DialClock will be added in next revision.

Hello!

I am working now on a 2D cockpit that has a clock (DialClock) on the right display. I have inserted the line ORTSCabviewpoint ( 3 ), corresponding to the right screen, but the additional control is displayed in the front cockpit. I am using OR New Year MG 1.4-237 rev. 119 and it does not work.

What am I doing wrong? Thank you.

The right screen requires ORTSCabViewpoint ( 2 ) (in the usual case that the third CabviewFile entry in the .cvf file refers to the right view). Numbering starts from 0 for the central view.

Thank you Carlo.

I have tried with ORTSCabViewpoint ( 2 ) and it works, except for DialClock which keeps popping up in the main front window. The Dials for the brake pipes do work fine.
