  1. I been reading a few extracts on the Net for the Export lua files for the DDI's etc, I am building the Open Hornet F18, but it has 4 x HDMI Screens (2 x DDI, 1 x MFD, 1 x Standby inst) all I can find on the lua export tutorials is how to expert all these to an external monitor, has anyone worked out how to export these to 4 x sperate HDMI outputs via the lua (yes I have the outputs available) just how do I split them all up, many thanks Ben
  2. @Fusedspine33 thanks, I thinks that's the plan, has anyone done this, is there an issue when switching the DDI to Missile camera and it rendering ok does this also effect the performance of the main GPU
  3. thanks @agrasyuk yeh unfortunately I need the 6 or 7 outputs, cheers for the info, let us know how you go with the 3090, what CPU you running, AMD or Intel
  4. Hi all, what Video set up are pilots using to run 3 x projectors AND the 4 cockpit screens in their Pit (ie 7 HDMI/Display Port outputs from the PC) DDI 1 DDI 2 AMPCD Standby inst Has anyone had success using a Video card for the projectors and a USB C adaptor for the Cockpit screens I am making the OPEN HORNET F18, and am looking to start buying the hardware Ben
  5. Hi these are the codes I ude for the F-18 Hornet this sould make it easy to understand /* ##################################################### DCS BIOS CODE for OPEN HORNET HYD BRAKE GAUGE ######################################################*/ #define DCSBIOS_IRQ_SERIAL #include "DcsBios.h" #include <Stepper.h> #define STEPS 720 // steps per revolution (limited to 315°) #define COIL1 8 #define COIL2 9 #define COIL3 10 #define COIL4 11 int HYD_BRK = 0; int val = 0; Stepper stepper(STEPS, COIL1, COIL2, COIL3, COIL4); void onHydIndBrakeChange(unsig
  6. F18 Update. I have now linked the Nextion (via Arduino) to DCS BIOS. The communication is excellent. The NOZ is still not mapped in the JSON file but i have replicated it. There is an update pending and a beta JSON and LUA available but I have had issues with it. Over all happy with the product. Some alignment issues to change when is get the face plate. But the codes are 90-95% ready. Using the Nextion saves an HDMI output. Green text is an experiment with dimming at lower than 25% to tune screen green as per the DCS cockpit.
  7. F-18 RPM output is limited to 2 Char. But the output needs to show 100% or higher. . Thus when it exceeds 99% it reverts back to 10% (not 100%). Thanks.
  8. Team. Is there a way to export the IFEI NOZ Left and NOZ right positions in DCS-Bios as a value of 0-100 (in steps of 10) or as 1-10 I can’t find export this to complete my IFEI screen via a Nextion/Arduino combo. Can this be included please. Engine RPM is also exported as only 2 char. However the RPM can reach 100 to witch only 10 is shown. Many thanks. Please see the mock up screen I am using attached. Using version 10 (Repost to this forum section)
  9. Ok. All others output fine. Just need to look at getting the NOZ positions.
  10. Post moved to https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?p=4433980#post4433980 Thanks. Please delete if required.
  11. Full digital face made. Have to re image the NOZ. but that’s 5 mins. Screen and arduino. Less than $200 AUD.
  12. Code complete for the NOZ positions.
  13. Team. Working with Pete in BNE and Luke in SYD on some options for the IEFI panel for our F18 sim pits. Discussing using Nextion 7.0” display. Has a few benefits. 1 super easy to program 2 touch screen - you can code the 6 Centre buttons into the screen (We are using push buttons though) 3 100% compatible with Arduino. Thus the DCS Bios can talk to it via the Serial link 4 very configurable. Will post some updates on progress. Note I am not a DCS Bios expert nor an expert on Arduino. But this is simple. Any questions I will try and answer. Test script run last night. This i
  14. Hi mate. What 14 seg LEDs you end up with. Can you share a link. Please.
  15. Can anyone post some pics if they are using the Thustmaster MFDs (2 or 3) on their home F18 Pit. I know the shape is slightly different. But how do they look. Also anyone got, the overall dimensions And what size LCD is needed behind the. Update. Fond this post for the size. https://forums.eagle.ru/attachment.php?attachmentid=31565&d=1253814034 Ben
