    Capt Zeen SU27 and SU33 Helios Profiles ! ! !

    Hello all, here they are !!

    Helios and SU27 / SU33

    Once breaked the limitations to send data to Helios across the FC interface, the implementation of extended functionality open new posibilities to the profile creations.
    This time, i present to you a complete SU27 and SU 33 profiles, where all the possible cockpit information has been exported to Helios: actual Hud modes, airport selected name, Fuel instruments, AoA and Gmeter, Air Speed, Bar alt, Rad alt, vetical speed, engines rpm and temp, ADI, HSI, mechanical info, beacons lights, clock, alarm panel lights, etc

    I replicate, aswell, the Beryoza instrument, using the data from the cockpit, and of course, the weapons pilon lights panel.

    I also included switches and buttons for electrical power, engines start, QFE adjust, ECM, Hud modes, wp select, nav and taxi lights, weapons and fuel jett, Beryoza modes and volume, hud switches, fuel drop, etc.

    Of course i added the navigation panel from others profiles, so you can check airport charts, tactical maps, ndbs, etc

    - Export.lua:

    Included in the Scripts folder, you can find the export.lua, (for DCS 1.5.2) ready to export data for: A10C width fixed radio freq, KA50, FC3, F-15C, P-51D, MI-8, and all the changes needed to implement this new SU27/33 profiles.
    You need to use this export.lua to work width the SU27/33 profiles, or the instruments dont show the correct values.
    This file is a modified version of the Loophole Updated version from 09/11/2014, ( http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=97222 )

    Important notice !!

    For the Beryoza implementation, i use export functions that can be forbiden in some online dedicated servers.
    Soon i'll prepare a new export.lua version of the profile widthout the Beryoza implementation, to avoid this problems on those servers.



    - Implementing the Beryoza

    The implementation of the beryoza is based on the information that export.lua send about the threads.
    To simulate the functionality of it, i use that data and recreate the working of the instrument, based on the SU27 user manual.
    In the airplane, the angles of the threats and the altitude (low or Hi) depends a lot of your actual attitud (banking, yaw, and pitch)
    On the profile, the information is more absolute, in other words, for example, the HI indicator is light it when the thread altitude is higher than yours, and dont depend of the pitch


    - Monitor aspect resolutions:

    I made four different profiles aspect ratios: v1.0 for 16:10 monitors, v1.0b for 16:9 monitors, v1.0c for 3:4 monitors and v1.0d for 5:4 monitors. Use the one better fit width you monitor resolution.
    If you dont know the aspect ratio of your monitor divide the width by the height of your resolution and compare the resoult on this table:

    width/height = 1.6 you got a 16:10 monitor
    width/height = 1.77 you got a 16:9 monitor
    width/height = 1.33 you got a 4:3 monitor
    width/height = 1.25 you got a 5:4 monitor

    for example: a resolution of 1920 by 1080: 1920/1080 = 1.77777 then you got a 16:9 aspect resolution




    - Buttons and Switches:

    I have included in the profile, a series of switches and controls, bindend to their corresponding keyboard shortcuts, so we can handle the most usually systems from the profile. But you have to take in consideration the fact that DCS does not send us the status of those switches, so to work properly and keep synchronized, should just activate it from the Helios profile and not from the keyboard.





    - International Keyboards:

    Some switches and buttoms use key bindings that can be different depends of the keyboard you are using.
    I prepared 6 diferent setups for spanish QWERTY, english QWERTY, italian QWERTY, german QWERTZ, french AZERTY and russian QWERTY, so you can start the one you need.


    - Thanks and credits:

    I made the entire graphic art, based on screenshots of the simulator, the textures from the game and the Devrim modified english cockpit.

    Part of the code of the Beryoza implementation (the thread radar type identification part) has been donated by McMicha. Thanks a lot, man, you save me a lot of work hours!

    I used the airport charts from http://www.virtual-jabog32.de and the tactical chart TC-1 created by =MAF=Mongoose

    I used the NDBs list created by Lino_Germany.

    I used, as well, the coordinates of the airports entry points, to get the airport name from raffaeleragni´s mfcdfc3.

    For the export.lua i used the Loophole version, compatible width KA50, A10c and FC3.

    And of course to Gadroc for creating this great software.

    INSTALLATION

    -Install Helios if you don't have it yet. (http://www.gadrocsworkshop.com/helios/latest)
    -Copy the profile on the profiles folder, usualy in user/my documents/helios/profiles
    -Copy the folder Capt_Zeen on the images folder, usualy in user/my documents/helios/images
    -Run the HeliosProfileEditor, load the profile that better fit width your monitor resolution and languaje, and perform a Reset Monitors from the menu Profile.
    -Save the profile and delete the unused ones.
    -Dont forget to use the export.lue i included in the package, that one contains all the commands to work width all my profiles. Copy it in C:\Users\yourusername\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts, but first make a backup copy of your actual export.lua. IF you use Tackview, Tarst or another external scripts, copy the corresponding lines from your old export.lua to the new one.


    RUNNING THE PROFILE

    -Open the Helios Control Center, select the profile and start it.



    CONFIGURING THE SECOND MONITOR

    Included in the package, there is a folder called "DCS Monitor Configuration" width a complete folders structure you can drop on DCS World instalation folder.
    You will need to change the coordinates x and y of the radar viewport and the width and height sizes of it in the DCS Monitor Configuration\Config\MonitorSetup\2_monitors_SU27.lua
    Change it before copy to the game folder, and save a copy of this structure, couse DCS world rewrite this files every update!
    To calculate the correct position of each viewport, run Helios and start the profile and take a screenshot using print screen key on the keyboard, and paste the image in any art program. Paint from Windows works well. Put the cursor over the left-up corners of the empty space and write down the coordinates. Drag a box from that point to the right_down corner, and take the width and height of the rectangle.
    Modify the 2_monitors_SU27.lua width your correct numbers. and you can now copy the complete "DCS Monitor Configuration" folder to the DCS game folder



    KNOWN ISSUES

    - As i write before, DCS dont send to Helios the position of the switches, so if you change any switch fron the keyboard instead from the profile, the Position of that switch is not coincident anymore until you click again on the keyboard.
    - The flaps light indicator on the mechanical panel, dont work for the su27, when in manual mode. The export.lua dont send the correct value for some reason. The value is conected on the profile, so if ED fix this problem someday, it will work on the profile.
    Anyway, the flaps are correct implemented when they are activated automaticaly by the airplane.
    - Read the Beryoza section for differences between the cockpit and the profile.

    OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

    If you use Helios and TARS or TACKVIEW you can have miss workings due to the way Helios works width the export.lua.
    To prevent this, just move the lines for Tars or tackview to the very end of the export.lua in C:\Users\yourusername\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts.

      Ahh gret work captain!
      Its just a pitty you cant use the beryoza on servers that restrict export. This unfortunately makes a use on the 104th or online pvp events impossible Thats a pity, would have loved to put the beryoza on a small monitor next to my main screen, to make it easier to spot the rwr, since its kind od hidden in the cockpit. Your efforts are appreciated never the less!

        Thank you so much for this! I am using it with my ipad.

        I can't get the radar screen to work when I print screen only one monitor shows up


        Edit: It actually does. Measured the size of the HDD screen. Still see a portion of my desktop

        Edit2: It works, I forgot to change my screen dimensions

                  The profile works fine. But sometimes it freeze. Restarting Helio's doesn't do the trick. I have to restart DCS. Do you have an idea what the probleme might be?

                      Issue with latest export file

                      Interesting problem occurred using the export file for this latest Su-27 Helios profile. I was trying to fly the A10-c module and loaded its Loz profile. However, when the game loaded, the second screen was black. I replaced the latest export file with the prior one listed on CZ's web site and all worked fine. I then reloaded the export file for the Su-27 profile and again all was fine.
                      I have no idea what the problem is but just wanted to alert users.

                          - Export.lua:

                          Included in the Scripts folder, you can find the export.lua, (for DCS 1.5.2) ready to export data for: A10C width fixed radio freq, KA50, FC3, F-15C, P-51D, MI-8, and all the changes needed to implement this new SU27/33 profiles.
                          You need to use this export.lua to work width the SU27/33 profiles, or the instruments dont show the correct values.
                          This file is a modified version of the Loophole Updated version from 09/11/2014, ( http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=97222 )

                          Important notice !!

                          For the Beryoza implementation, i use export functions that can be forbiden in some online dedicated servers.
                          Soon i'll prepare a new export.lua version of the profile widthout the Beryoza implementation, to avoid this problems on those servers.



                          - Implementing the Beryoza

                          The implementation of the beryoza is based on the information that export.lua send about the threads.
                          To simulate the functionality of it, i use that data and recreate the working of the instrument, based on the SU27 user manual.
                          In the airplane, the angles of the threats and the altitude (low or Hi) depends a lot of your actual attitud (banking, yaw, and pitch)
                          On the profile, the information is more absolute, in other words, for example, the HI indicator is light it when the thread altitude is higher than yours, and dont depend of the pitch


                          - Monitor aspect resolutions:

                          I made four different profiles aspect ratios: v1.0 for 16:10 monitors, v1.0b for 16:9 monitors, v1.0c for 3:4 monitors and v1.0d for 5:4 monitors. Use the one better fit width you monitor resolution.
                          If you dont know the aspect ratio of your monitor divide the width by the height of your resolution and compare the resoult on this table:

                          width/height = 1.6 you got a 16:10 monitor
                          width/height = 1.77 you got a 16:9 monitor
                          width/height = 1.33 you got a 4:3 monitor
                          width/height = 1.25 you got a 5:4 monitor

                          for example: a resolution of 1920 by 1080: 1920/1080 = 1.77777 then you got a 16:9 aspect resolution




                          - Buttons and Switches:

                          I have included in the profile, a series of switches and controls, bindend to their corresponding keyboard shortcuts, so we can handle the most usually systems from the profile. But you have to take in consideration the fact that DCS does not send us the status of those switches, so to work properly and keep synchronized, should just activate it from the Helios profile and not from the keyboard.





                          - International Keyboards:

                          Some switches and buttoms use key bindings that can be different depends of the keyboard you are using.
                          I prepared 6 diferent setups for spanish QWERTY, english QWERTY, italian QWERTY, german QWERTZ, french AZERTY and russian QWERTY, so you can start the one you need.


                          - Thanks and credits:

                          I made the entire graphic art, based on screenshots of the simulator, the textures from the game and the Devrim modified english cockpit.

                          Part of the code of the Beryoza implementation (the thread radar type identification part) has been donated by McMicha. Thanks a lot, man, you save me a lot of work hours!

                          I used the airport charts from http://www.virtual-jabog32.de and the tactical chart TC-1 created by =MAF=Mongoose

                          I used the NDBs list created by Lino_Germany.

                          I used, as well, the coordinates of the airports entry points, to get the airport name from raffaeleragni´s mfcdfc3.

                          For the export.lua i used the Loophole version, compatible width KA50, A10c and FC3.

                          And of course to Gadroc for creating this great software.

                          - Info about the profile and version.


                          INSTALLATION

                          -Install Helios if you don't have it yet. (http://www.gadrocsworkshop.com/helios/latest)
                          -Copy the profile on the profiles folder, usualy in user/my documents/helios/profiles
                          -Copy the folder Capt_Zeen on the images folder, usualy in user/my documents/helios/images
                          -Run the HeliosProfileEditor, load the profile that better fit width your monitor resolution and languaje, and perform a Reset Monitors from the menu Profile.
                          -Save the profile and delete the unused ones.
                          -Dont forget to use the export.lue i included in the package, that one contains all the commands to work width all my profiles. Copy it in C:\Users\yourusername\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts, but first make a backup copy of your actual export.lua. IF you use Tackview, Tarst or another external scripts, copy the corresponding lines from your old export.lua to the new one.


                          RUNNING THE PROFILE

                          -Open the Helios Control Center, select the profile and start it.



                          CONFIGURING THE SECOND MONITOR

                          Included in the package, there is a folder called "DCS Monitor Configuration" width a complete folders structure you can drop on DCS World instalation folder.
                          You will need to change the coordinates x and y of the radar viewport and the width and height sizes of it in the DCS Monitor Configuration\Config\MonitorSetup\2_monitors_SU27.lua
                          Change it before copy to the game folder, and save a copy of this structure, couse DCS world rewrite this files every update!
                          To calculate the correct position of each viewport, run Helios and start the profile and take a screenshot using print screen key on the keyboard, and paste the image in any art program. Paint from Windows works well. Put the cursor over the left-up corners of the empty space and write down the coordinates. Drag a box from that point to the right_down corner, and take the width and height of the rectangle.
                          Modify the 2_monitors_SU27.lua width your correct numbers. and you can now copy the complete "DCS Monitor Configuration" folder to the DCS game folder



                          KNOWN ISSUES

                          - As i write before, DCS dont send to Helios the position of the switches, so if you change any switch fron the keyboard instead from the profile, the Position of that switch is not coincident anymore until you click again on the keyboard.
                          - The flaps light indicator on the mechanical panel, dont work for the su27, when in manual mode. The export.lua dont send the correct value for some reason. The value is conected on the profile, so if ED fix this problem someday, it will work on the profile.
                          Anyway, the flaps are correct implemented when they are activated automaticaly by the airplane.
                          - Read the Beryoza section for differences between the cockpit and the profile.

                          OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

                          If you use Helios and TARS or TACKVIEW you can have miss workings due to the way Helios works width the export.lua.
                          To prevent this, just move the lines for Tars or tackview to the very end of the export.lua in C:\Users\yourusername\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts.

                              HI!

                              If you dont have any response on your gauges, the problem is probably your export.lua.
                              You need to be sure you are using my export.lua for the su27 and su33, and copy it in the correct place, Follow the instructions and let me know how it goes.

                              The profile works on all version of dcs right now.
