Even with a good pc your frames will dip below 40 frames per second while the game runs at 130 - 90 fps otherwise

What qualifies as a "good pc?"

PiP scopes is an absolute game changer - I'm gonna have to try it.

I have 1060 6 gb 16 gb ram i5 3.9, ususally i have around 140 fps when aiming with PiP scopes i get half of that (70-80fps) no matter what settings or dx. Its just they are generaly more demanding and are especially poorly implemented in Stalker. Overall its a nice gimmick that quickly wears off, or maybe if you are youtuber and want pretty picture for video.

Yeah pretty much as Kosior and Grok said PiP optics will cut your fps in half, if not more, good PC or not. If your computer manages Anomaly in R3 render with about 120fps then it might become bearable, depending on what you define as bearable fps.

Good PC as in RTX3070 and KF10700 good.

Game is monothreaded - PiP makes the game render two times - it halves your FPS. You can't get around that.

And even with that PC I cannot get constant > 120 FPS. Especially when I stream even on the GPU.

Ok, i've managed to get it to work with the 1p29+vihr :) had to adjust the eye cup a bit and there are some tweaks to the reticle texture necessary.

Media.moddb.com

It seems like the mod will bring some other problems with it, for example, the recoil of weapons. When the gun is fired (bursts are enough) the scope will clip into the player camera at some point, so there are recoil adjustments necessary. a simple "workaround" is the principle camera adjustment, which needs a certain distance from the player, but the pip will a bit too small on the screen that way.

Dual render Pip Scopes cut your fps in half because they cause the scene to be rendered twice.

A more elegant solution is to take the previous frame, apply a filter to it, then zoom it in. It is not as pretty, but is a decent compromise and doesnt tank your fps.

Unfortunately, it's not actually a mod, just a tech demo. I think the creator is working on it though (may be misremembering), so keep an eye on the DB.

Great idea for the mod, always wanted this in Anomaly, but it seems to be working only with hud fov around 0.55-0.6. Above that the reticle becomes just a tiny peephole when I move the aim position closer to the face.

Since everybody uses different hud fov I can't really adjust it to perfection, but you can edit yourself by opening the weapon hud editor in the debug menu, adjusting it there and then replacing the original hud values with your custom ones in the .itx file of the weapon you were editing.
PS: Not my idea btw.

Awesome effort but the scope itself needs to be 2 or even 3 times the size it is - have you actually used a scope - or binoculars? That's NOT having a go at whats been done - I'd genuinely love a version that's more realistic (fully realistic would have no outside view as your whole field IS taken by the device - but for gameplay it's good to have some outside view). Also, I'm sure one of the AMK SoC versions had PIP type scopes (with the larger more realistic scope field tho) - as well as being able to switch between the long range and closeup scopes on the G36 etc. - ie. the closeup scope was presented as viewed from some distance back with the long range one having player eye up close to it - I'll try and hunt down what game that was as it might be useful to see how they were doing it.

An interesting idea would be use a PIP type system to represent shooting with both eyes open - ie. imagine the scope circle pushed over to be touching the RH side of the screen (but 2 - 3 times bigger than now), with blurry dark shape of the scope housing vertical thru the centre to maybe bit Left of centre of screen - and unzoomed world view filling the remaining LH side of the screen... THAT would be awesome!!

It would require bullet impact point being shifted to the right on the screen as well - which might be the impossible part - I'm not familiar enough with the way that is set in the game to know whether it's in configs or in the engine itself.

Yeah i noticed in post that the fov while aiming is way to high and im planning on fixing it (and hopefully releasing the fix) tomorrow.
Your idea is great, but it would probably require some serious engine tweaks to make it work, if you find that mod you mentioned feel free to post it in the comments.

Yep I'll set about digging thru the old AMK stuff and see if I can find that mod. I remember headscratching at the time that process just didn't become normal for all STALKER games and mods from that time on. Thinking further on the scopes with both eyes open idea, if the change could be made to shift the bullet hit point across to maybe 640 of 768 wide screen whenever aiming is being done - ie. even with open sights - then with the iron sights animations matching that as well as the open eye scopes textures to match that positioning it would be an interesting way to go!!

I haven't got into chasing thru AMK stuff yet but I have discovered there's evidently a secondary aim option in the engine - "SECOND AIM MODE FOR VANILLA RC18" mod on here demonstrates the enabled configs (for VSS / G43 etc.). My apologies if you're already using those commands - I haven't actually done much playing with your mod at this stage. I'm SURE the AMK based mod I'm thinking of not only used that secondary sight mode command but also did utilise PIP / differential zooming - but it is possible I'm only remembering this secondary sights mode.

Further to the idea of sideways shifted impact point etc. - what I'm getting at there is that even with iron sights, IRL because you're resting ur cheek on the stock to aim then your field of view to the right ends up reduced - so having the sight view shifted to the right half of the screen would IMO have good immersion value as well as facilitating the both eyes open while scope shooting thing I've described (that's assuming all shooters are right handed of course - an option to choose right or left handed shooting would be the best politically correct way to go!).

I'll work on merging a compatibility patch for B&S and EFT view positions if you can give me some brief advice on which ltx's are causing incompatibility.

I'm considering just doing a direct merge with any files touched by B&S but I'm not sure if that's the best approach to take.

I'll have to do a little testing, merge a few more lines and if things go right I should have it published by Friday.

Mind you, like Grok and others mentioned, it will completely poo-poo your frame rate.

This is mostly a personal exercise in merging disparate mods that otherwise wouldn't work with one another. :)

A proof of concept, if you would.

I've been buttkickingly busy at work and haven't had a chance to address B&S icon issues with the patch.

I'm also contemplating pausing... There's talk that Anomawy 1.6 could have PiP scopes that don't completely devastate our FPS.

По поводу скрипта, вы такие умные как я посмотрю, но даже не учли что при включении второго прицела, чувствительность мышки остается на минимуме, как можно это прозевать и не учесть, я удивляюсь, впредь развивайте интеллект.

hello again, I have a question this time.
I wanna modify a bit, like when I see through the scope feels like my eyes are too far from scope. so I changed Z axis of aim_hud_offset_pos in ltx file. the thing is, now the scope is closer when I aim but the size of pip image is same like original(which mean image is still small and located middle of pitch black). is there any possible way that i can modify with ltx file with this? I already checked scripts folder but pip_sens.script doesnt looks like what I looking for :\
