    Thanx

    Meanwhile CaptZeen we r waiting your video(s)
    From the readme and what I followed:

    Ok, this is important to know, Helios do not export the viewports, is DCS who do that.

    Some DCS modules are ready to export some of his viewport, but not all of them. That's the reason we need to change some .luas to make that module ready to export the viewports.

    In the F18 case, and at this date ( 07/30/2018 ), only the 2 DDIs are ready to export. The AMPCD, IFEI, RWR and UFC are not, so we need to overwrite those .luas with other ones ready to export viewport.

    Usually, in my profile packages you got everything you need to do that operation in a folder called monitor configuration. So...

    - Check if you installed the files in the correct place. I recomend to you use JSGME or OVGME to do the job, because in every DCS update those files are rewriten again
    - Then edit the MonitorSetup file to adjust the viewports to your monitor configuration. (2_monitors-FA18C.lua )
    - In DCS options, put your max resolution ( this is the total of your monitor resolutions in horizontal and vertical, for example two monitors 1920x1080 placed in horizontal layout, the total resolution is 3840x1080 )
    - In DCS options, uncheck full screen option
    - In DCS options, select the monitorsetup file to use (the one your just edited)



    So in the Zeen FA18 package update 2 there is a folder called MonitorConfiguration->Mods->aircraft->FA-18C-Cockpit->Scripts and there you find the IFEI,TEWS and UFC files.

        Capt Zeen how do you program these? I wanted to use part of your panel such as the UFC, HUD control Panel the Armaments panel and IR panel but none of the others.


        Is there any chance you could explain how I remove the panel graphic then delete the switches I dont need and then perhaps create a new graphic panel?


        I noticed you used the A-10C interface, how do you know which switch in A-10C is the one in the F/A-18C?

          Hello Mr Burns

          You can load the profile in the editor and then, delete everything you dont want. In some cases, the image in the backgrouond is complete, and you'll need to cut those in photoshop or any other paint program.


          The team working on the new Helios 1.4 is working on diferent F18 panels, ready for use, so probably you can do what you want soon, and easy.


          The F/A-18C is my last profile thats uses the old A10C interface. In the new Helios 1.4 i added a new interface for general purposes and can be used by different airplanes.
          The conversion between A10C and F18 was made directly on the export files. i Assign every A10C control to the actual F18 one.
          With the new general interface, that part is much more easy to do. I can assign the diferent controls to the new airplane models. My new Mi-8 v2 profile, already uses this new interface.
          Rightnow i am finishing a new UH1H version with this new interface too.

                Hello everyone
                Since the last update last Friday, after having injected the files of Captzeen's mod for the offset of the screens of FA18, it is impossible for me to get the page "blinds" which remains displayed "UFC BU PLACEHOLDER". Despite successive repairs and finally a full reload of the beta version, nothing has changed. Note that this same mod with the same files still works in the stable version.
                Does anyone have this problem and does he have an idea for the repair ?

                      What do you mean by "for the offset of the screens of FA18". My profile is running fine after the update.

                        Hi!

                        Great job!

                        Is it possible to export the helios profil + MFD/RWR etc.. to an other computer?

                        Thanks a lot!

                          Hi Roger01, not that I am aware of (exporting directly to a remote computer). The way to achieve what you want to do is covered in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78to_NENQT8 and links to the required software are in the comments section of the video.
                          BlueFinBima

                          Latest Helios Virtual Cockpit Team version of Helios is 1.6.3304.0 (Direct from Github) or Helios 1.6.3304.0 from DCS User Files. The last 1.4 release can be picked up from 1.4.2020.0530 (The last release of 1.4)

                            Thanks a lot. And Helios (the export.lua command line, not the software) do a hudge fps drop, the more memory dcs take, more is the drop (40fps with the export commande line, 70 without.)

                            Comment


                              Try these values in MDG_strokesDefs.lua


                              Code:
                              stroke_thickness  = 0.5
                              stroke_fuzziness  = 0.4
                              
                              -- Currently is used for DMC generated fonts black outline
                              DMC_outline_thickness = stroke_thickness * 1
                              DMC_outline_fuzziness = stroke_fuzziness * 3.5
                              DMC_stroke_thickness  = 0.5
                              DMC_stroke_fuzziness  = 0.4
                              Crisps enough, you can use your helmet visor AND the HSI is great, even with the map !

                              P.S : With horizontal multi monitor setup

                                Hi, i am not able to make this working.
                                I am talking about the latest helios version (1.4) i load this profile in helios control panel but the instruments in the profile don't move (adi/altimeter etc etc).
                                I did not try yet the ddi/ufc etc etc export as first i want the basic profile to work.
                                In my scripts folder i have everything configured as in the instructions (but i have a lot of plugins and everything is working correctly (vaicomm, srs radio, dcs bios etc etc) so the only think is...maybe this profile cannot work with the newest helios version?

                                Following the troubleshooting section in the readme this behaviour seems to point to helios not getting dcs data (so export not working) but from dcs.log file the only line in which helios is mentioned don't show any error
                                These are all the lines where export is mentioned in the dcs.log file.

                                  Send me your profile, i can take a look. Sometimes helios dont do the correct job when reseting monitors if you are using more than 2 monitors.

                                    Ok i will as i can, but i have only 2 monitors.
                                    Other exports are working for sure (dcs bios with dcs flightpanels for example)

                                      Charts not showing

                                      Hi Capt Zeen,
                                      Awsome job on this FA18 profile. Im a noob to Helios and got your profile to work 90%.

                                      My problem is regarding the Chart tab....it is not showing the charts at all. How do I get them to work?

                                      Cheers,
                                      Adrian

                                        Can't read UFC anymore

                                        Hi,
                                        I've been using the F-18 helios profile for some time now,
                                        recently I noticed I can't see the numbers for the UFC when it's on.
                                        the export works ok and the numbers are there when stopping Helios, but it seems as if the UFC lost it's transparency in the green LCD displays.
                                        It did work before...
                                        Help is appreciated.
                                        Thanks,
                                        Ron

                                        You can see in the red circles the channel numbers (very faint),
                                        Now I cant see it anymore. also the area in blue that use to work is unseen now when Helios overlay is on....
