    I am not sure if you mean the .lua or the helios profile so i attached both. Helios file is in the google drive link. I threw in the DCS log as well because I changed monitors but i already followed your trouble shooting tips and nothing :/ dont know if this time around i got a new error.

    So i did make a few changes. I installed table DCS world and uninstalled helios.

    First thing i did was download your profile and download helios according to your instructions.

    I followed it to the foot of the letter with the new DCS world install. So helios is fresh as well. I also completely deleted DCS beta to be safe.

    My new monitor setup is 3840 x 3600 (3840x2560 tv and a 2560x1440 screen under it!)

    UPDATE/EDIT: Ok so i was messing around and before i do anything else, where do i install the export.lua file? I put it in D:\DCS World\Scripts. I did back up the original. Anyway i was looking at DerekM write up for helios with a touch screen monitor (which I got rid of) but he puts the export file under C:\Users\[username]\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts

    is that were I put mine as well? and leave the original in D:\DCS World\Scripts? Or do I place it in both?

    I am an idiot if this is the issue lol.

    UPDATE/EDIT #2: So I tried following DerekM write up and it did not work either. So i placed the export.lua under C:\Users\[username]\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts and deleted it over in D:\DCS World\Scripts but that didnt work. I tried the script only in D:\DCS World\Scripts and deleted from C:\Users\[username]\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts but that didn't work either. Lastly I tried having the same export.lua in both C:\Users\[username]\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts and D:\DCS World\Scripts but that did not work either. I'm out of ideas Capt. the export.lua I tired was the one DerekM generated via helios. I still; have yours and i guess i can copy it to C:\Users\[username]\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts and see if being there helps. but i doubt it.

      Presumably it works with a touchscreen, are there any recommendations? I was considering the Magedok 15,6 Inch touch screen.
      Performace hit: Depends on your rig, but all over all it‘s not that big that it will be showstopper.

      Touchscreen: Look for at least 20“-22“.
      The DDI / UFC buttons are even on my 20“ screen a little bit too tiny.
      But that‘s only my very personal look and feel.

        OK, that changes things! I was going to have the touchscreen at arms length so I guess I'll need a much bigger display.

          Is there a way to make exported DDIs and other indicators always be bright at their max and not be affected by cockpit controls?

            After switching on the JHMCS - HMD, its lines are very poorly visible, can anyone correct it already? I tried to change the values ​​in the "HMD_init" file
            shaderLineDefaultThickness = 1.8 , shaderLineDefaultFuzziness = 1.5 , but it does not work.
            I know that it does not really match HELIOS, but I have no idea where to ask.

              RWR problem.
              Exported RWR, depending on the month specified in the mission, is better or worse visible. It is very visible in May and very weak in August. Has anyone seen it yet? In other aircraft there is no such effect, it surprised me a lot. Screenshots, same mission, only months changed.

                I managed to remedy this problem, I changed the position of the additional monitor, and this solved the problem of RWR.

                  In ...\DCS World\Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Cockpit\Scripts\Multipurpose_Display_Group\Common\indicator\MDG_strokesDefs.lua
                  change the follwing values:

                  Old:
                  stroke_thickness = 0.8
                  stroke_fuzziness = 0.5

                  New:
                  stroke_thickness = 0.4
                  stroke_fuzziness = 0.2

                  This will enhance the fonts and make them more readable.

                  Pls keep this in mind:
                  I have have neither tested more/other values nor influences on other fonts (HUD maybe?).

                  And do not to forget to set shaderLineDrawAsWire back to false. Zeen already made a headsup on this.
                  Otherwise the fonts will still look garbled, no matter what values you're going to use for the stroke_...

                  Maybe someone like to support here by testing other values?


                  Meanwhile I'm going to make a JSGME-file for that viewport stuff.

                  Unfortunately, this solution also reduces the clarity of lines and numbers on JHMCS - HMD

                    Hi, I would like to use an Ipad Pro for using helios and this profile...do someone knows how this is possible?
                    I Know there is an ipad app but it don't works very well and I uninstalled it and asked for a refund.
                    My idea is to use and ipad as a second monitor and the use helios, but these profile are only 16:10 or 16:9 is there a way to quickly convert to the iPad 2,388 x 1,668 format?
                    Thanks

                      Blame ED and ask why it isn‘t basically fixed since months.

                      The time I discovered this workaround, the JHMCS wasn‘t even at the horizon...

                      Nevertheless: Thx for the hint!

                        Hi,


                        I've done everything and the panel appears in my fourth (lower) monitor, however it's not showing anything in the mfds, or any other display/gauge on this panel. The mostly work, but all the displays are empty. Does anyone have any idea as to what might be happening???


                        Thanks.

                          I have been out of this for awhile but I experienced this many times myself, likely due to monitor config file? For starters, I would suggest running DCS without Helios running just to see if any of your exports are appearing any where?

                            No gauges appear by themselves in any monitor

                              Ok, just in case, my monitors are positioned in a "T" arrangement in which I have 3 32" on top and 1 27" below. I don't know if this has anything to do with my problem.

                                I'm still trying to figure out what is happening. I really don't know if I was supposed to add the gauges apart from the panel.

                                        Hey guys, i just started flying the F18 and downloaded Capt Zeen's helios profile and everything and all the viewports aren't showing on my Helios Monitor, they're just blank boxes. I read the fix on the first page of this thread but I'm a bit lost. Does anyone have a how to, step by step, on how to export these views to show on the helios monitor? My helios monitor is 1920x180. Thanks!

                                          Having trouble turning knobs in the profile.

                                          How do the knobs/rotaries work? Is there a touch area on the left and right side that you just click(doesn't work for me). Of do you flip your finger/mouse up/down? Or left/right? Or in a circle(seems to work "sometimes")?

                                          What is the best way to move your finger/mouse to make a dial turn clockwise or counterclockwise?

                                          Argg..
