    Home Fries,

    Thanks for letting me know. Could you send me your 'dcs.log' from 'Saved Games/DCS/Logs' after you try a mission with the dynamic kneeboards.

    Thanks

              Thanks. It looks like there is a problem in my missiondata.lua that parses the mission file. Do you know if the mission you were playing was created with a relatively older build of DCS World? Do the dynamic kneeboards work for you in a newly created mission?

                Got same problem here with missiondata.lua both with new and old missions.

                got this on my DCS Log

                load error J:\IceMakeR\Saved Games\DCS\KNEEBOARD/001-missionbriefing-001.lua:[string "J:\IceMakeR\Saved Games\DCS\Data\KneeboardData\missiondata.lua"]:386: attempt to concatenate local 'callname' (a nil value).

                      Version 1.6.2.2 Released

                      Version 1.6.2.2 is now available.

                      VERSION 1.6.2.2 CHANGELOG:

                      -fixed dynamic kneeboards not displaying text after DCS World 1.2.11.3386 update

                      IMPORTANT:

                      If you are using a version of DCS World earlier than version 1.2.11.3386 be sure you check the 'Use legacy kneeboard components' option in Options->Preferences.

                      View the troubleshooting section in the readme for further information.

                        3) Now you can click on the 'Build Custom Kneeboard for General DCS World' to add it to the General Kneeboard and make the dynamic kneeboards visible in all aircraft. Or you can select a specific aircraft with the 'Select Aircraft' drop down box and then click on the 'Build Custom Kneeboard' button to add the dynamic kneeboards only to your selected aircraft's kneeboard.

                        How come when I select F-15c from the drop down and then click on the 'Build Custom Kneeboard'' button it only appears in the General DCS World Kneeboard?
                        Also, I am unable to change the order of the 'Default Dynamic' files as they appear in my custom kneeboard. They can be moved up or down the list but it doesn't affect their sort order in game.

                        Thank you.

                          Does the build button say 'Build Custom Kneeboard for F-15C' after you select F-15C and does a popup message say 'Successfully built custom kneeboard for F15C' after you click the button?
                          Can you view the F-15C kneeboard by clicking View->Kneeboard Folders->F-15C Kneeboard?

                          It might be building to the General Kneeboard if it can't find the 'Saved Games/DCS/Kneeboard/F-15C' folder

                          That is a bug. I will work on fixing it.

                            I must have done something out of sequence, because now it's working OK. I now realize I must always press the button that says 'Build Custom Kneeboard' after I do any modifying to an existing custom KB...thank you AlaskanGrizzly.

                            Something else I'd like to ask. No one wants a kneeboard with too many pages, it takes too long to get through. Is there a way to change kneeboards in the middle of a mission? I read that you can only change KB if you are not in an active plane. What exactly does that mean?

                            Thanks again.

                              The kneeboard is updated in game only when you take control of an aircraft. If you change the kneeboard pages when you are in control of an aircraft, the kneeboard won't update in game until you reload the aircraft or switch to a different aircraft like you can do in multiplayer.

                                Hello,

                                My dynamic kneeboard only works in MP not in Single Player missions.
                                don't know Why, i had this error in DCS.log, i think it searches for TMP/.miz file but this file is only for MP missions.

                                  It looks like it his having difficulty parsing the JTAC units in the mission file. The mission designer has gone through so many changes over the past several years that there is now five or six ways JTAC can be implemented in the mission. If JTAC was added to the mission using one of the older methods the dynamic kneeboards don't always parse it correctly. The CREATE FAST MISSION feature in DCS hasn't been updated to use the new method of adding JTAC to the mission file, so those missions don't always work properly either.

                                  You can test this with your mission by removing all of the JTAC units and then add them again using the newer JTAC features in the mission designer.

                                  If it is possible, could you upload the mission you are trying to use so I can setup the the dynamic kneeboards to better handle the older JTAC styles?

                                  Thanks.
