    Capt Zeen,
    Couldn't use your ready to use Helios profiles because my extractions screen has different dimensions than the ones you have and...because I was way too intimidated to deal with Helios to build something other than the built in DCS Hornet ready to export (sort of) extractions but no bezels or no active buttons or indicators.

    Well...today I found out that your tutorials, explanations, ready art and profile are so splendid, beautiful, easy to use and to understand that with a few adaptations, a lot of trial and error and just a bit of "original thinking" I managed to upgrade my extractions by a large margin and then some.

    In short...THANK YOU !!!

      Sobe, did you confirm this? I am struggling to get my init.lua configured in such a way that the exports are well enough to read.

        I may be one of the lucky ones as both of my monitors are the same 1920x1080 and some users have said that if your monitors are the same, the viewports will work fine. I have no idea if that is the case, but for me, they work with no mods.

            Question:
            One monitorsetup.lua file for both Hornet and Falcon MFD extraction instead of changing specific modules lua names?

                  If you're using CaptZeen's profiles, there are small buttons/icons on the main panel that allow you to "pop up" or "activate" the secondary panels.

                  I've made those switches a little bigger in my own profiles, but here is what they look like on the A-10.

                      The current state of the F-18's exports are that you can either have them look good in your export or they can look good on your primary monitor. I don't know if it's possible to have them both look good.

                      I've opted to make the export look better.

                      To do that, you can edit your RWR_ALR67_intit.lua file. If you're using the standalone version of the game, it can be found here:
                      C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World Open Beta\Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Cockpit\scripts\TEWS\indicator\RWR_ALR67_init.lua

                      Edit the ShaderLineDefaultThickness and Fuzziness values as such (or edit them to a level you find more preferable):

                      Remember though, it's a trade-off: your export will look better but your in-game RWR on the main cockpit won't be visible.

                        Capt. Zeen and/or all community experts,

                        First, All of your work is amazing, thanks for all you do!

                        I am trying to make an F-18 custom interface with the four back up instruments and the RWR in the lower right of my screen that will be mounted behind a physical dash overlay. I was able to place most of them from the toolbox. But have run into two issues:

                        The F-18 VVI by default has an oversized perimeter box around it that affects the placement needed. I need to place it between the edge of the image and the edge of the perimeter box. When trying to edit these items in paint I get warnings about a loss of function/transparency and do not understand how to restore functionality. Would it be possible to have a resized VVI added to the toolbox?

                        There is no F-18 RWR in the toolbox library. I was hoping to have the etched glass transparency in the profile. Attempting a cut and paste in paint also results in those loss of functionality/transparency warnings. I tried using the A-10 RWR and that resulted in the previously viewable RWR viewport (edited RWR.lua) displayed as a pile of giant pixels. Any idea why the RWR overlay would scramble the viewport? Does the overlay eliminate the need for editing the RWR.lua? Would it be possible to have an F-18 RWR added to the toolbox?

                        Thanks in advance for any help from all.

                          I am using some mods for my Helios setup and as a result, the green letters and numbers on my HUD are a little light and thin for me. Does anyone have a mod that makes the letters and numbers on the HUD a dark green or black?

                            Are any of the MODS you are using intended to make the exported DDI's more legible? I only ask because I know that if you are editing those .lua files, there is an adverse effect on the OEM DDIs

                              HI, I created an F-18c dashboard using just the AMPCD and the left DDI, both screens and surrounds show up fine but I cant get any of the buttons to work. I checked the install and the lua scripts were all in the right place as per your dialog in the first post, but nothing seems wrong and there are no errors in the dcs log after exiting a mission.
                              How can I get th ebuttons working please?

                                Did you put the inputs and uotputs bindings to the buttons?

                                    Which video?
                                    Only captzeen video i can find is the one for configuring his profile.
                                    Is there some other video that explains how to create a profile from scratch using the f18 (or other aircraft) interface please?
                                    I tried but cannot get the data from dcs and cannot get ufc and ifei integrated into helios to work. Also i pressed the setup button in helios. but that also did not change anything.
                                    Anyway I tried the captzeen profile and it works correctly so i don’t think its an export problem.
                                    I would like to do my profile just because i have tm mfds and i would like to have a different layout then captzeen


                                    While i am here, i have an issue with the captzeen profile...its a small one but annoying.
                                    I see from all the screenshots here that people have labels on the green buttons (the one used to show lateral panels or the maps) while i only see the green rectangular button.
                                    This is also the case for f16 and tomcat profile that i tried as well. Someone knows what i did wrong and how to fix?
