    Hi,

    I wonder if anyone can help me solve this problem?

    I am trying to setup a DCS Hornet UFC export profile i have on a remote laptop with a touchscreen connected in order to send the UFC keypresses to my desktop PC that has DCS running on it. So far no problem with the laptop/touchscreen side, the profile works and when i press the UFC buttons on the UFC they are recognised (they derpress etc.) The problem is i do not seem to be able to get the keypresses recognised and active in DCS on the Desktop PC. I have the keypress receiver installed on the desktop and have configured the pots etc to match with the Helios install on both systems.

    I just have no idea where to go from here to get the touchscreen keypresses active in DCS when i'm in the Hornet. Unfortunately i can't use the more conventional method of connecting the touchscreen to my desktop system, i've tried but it just doesn't work.

    Any help at all would be very much appreciated, i have been working on this for a few days now.

    Thanks.

      Hi. I didn't write KeypressReceiver (inherited that from 1.4) but I can help you figure it out if nobody else answers your question. https://github.com/HeliosVirtualCock...ki/Ask-derammo

        Hi derammo,

        Thank you for the kind offer, any help would be gratefully received!

        My setup is as follows:

        5 monitor setup on DCS Desktop PC
        Main display is 3440 x 1440 on Display Port.
        3 x Cubesim USB 3.0 LCD panels fitted to Cubesim backboxes and Cougar MFD's running at 800 x 600 these have a custom MonitorSetup.lua in order for them to work with my current setup, i will attach copy to this post. They also currently have to be arranged in a horizontal row from the top left of my main display to work with the .lua.
        1 x Prechen 15" Touchscreen display at 1920 x 1080 (this is what i am obviously trying to put the UFC onto to utilise the touch capability etc
        Total desktop resolution = 5840 x 1440 in DCS monitor settings.
        Cubesim.lua selected from the Monitors options in DCS settings.

        I also have a MSI Gaming laptop which i tried connecting the Prechen Touchscreen to and then attempted to set up the remote PC Helios option to the main Desktop with, without success.
        I tried connecting the Touchscreen to the Desktop and setting up that way but it didn't seem to work, wherever i pressed the screen the responses were always received a couple of cms away from where i pressed. It also seemed that no keypresses were being sent this way either?

        Hope all of that is clear? Sorry!!

        Hope you can help, thanks again.
