  1. Thank you. Might you have any advise or link to a resource to help me layout the matrix itself? I find this to be confusing at this point. Thank!
  2. Thanks all. I’ll back up and start small. Is it possible to have two of these switches along with a Pro Micro control the seat height adjustment and the opening and closing of the canopy? These DIY button boxes look so easy on YouTube. I’m overwhelmed at the moment. Thanks again all. We’ll come back to the ACHP panel after I do a few simpler things.
  3. Hello all, I'm working on my first button box wish is planned to be Arduino Pro Micro controlled. This box will include some simple SPST switches that I understand how to setup for the Arduino. What I do not understand is there are five AHCP switches that I think are on/on/on. I have this switch from Digikey. I don't understand how to wire this switch such that I can use the on/on/on functionality and work it into my row/column matrix for the Pro Micro. This drawing shows pins 3 & 5 are jumped. I get that. Position 1 for example requires pins 2-3, 5-6 (all this information is on t
  4. I'm looking for the switches for the AHCP. Would you please share your source for the toggle switches on this panel? Thanks.
  5. Setting up my first DCS dedicated server today. I'd like to use Tacview on it. I own an advanced license through Steam. This is installed on my DCS client which is a different PC. In order to install Tacview on my server must I purchase a 2nd license? Thank you.
  6. How does one create a new keybinding? Thanks!
  7. Hello all, I now have the hardware to fly DCS in proper VR. Unfortunately, I'm also low vision (legally blind). I have Ocular Albinism I can't lean in close enough to read the controls/panels. Leaning into the HUD does not make it any bigger. It only appears the same size/distance. At least for me. What options, if any, are there to zoom in with VR? I looked for the VR zooms in the UI layer of the controls menu. It's empty. I've put a screenshot on my Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1gb9lWZIYL9ghQ76NS4LGZ0RUUSYeyAzE/view?usp=sharing Any help appreciated. Thank yo
  8. Hello all. Please forgive me for failing to find it. I'm guessing it's in the forum and/or YouTube, I just failed to find it. I'm new to the GUI updater. I want to create a few different builds however, I don't understand how. Do I need multiple installs of DCS and my purchased content? Does the licensing allow for this? How do I set this up? Is it as simple as creating a separate directory and installing as if it were a new single install and point the updater to each .exe? Where would build #2, for example, create a saved games folder given the original exists on drive C: in the def
  9. Would like to try the Vive in DCS, but can't seem to get it going. What settings in the sim, if any must I change manually beyond the use VR headset checkbox in the settings? Should I change the resolution from 1 monitor at 1920x1080? If so, to what? Thanks!
  10. Hello all, I'm guessing the answer to this question is yes, but I want to make sure. These campaign add-ons that are available for A10-C can my buddy and I fly the missions together? I understand we would each have to buy for example a license for http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/shop/campaigns/a-10c_enemy_within_campaign/ so we both have the content. I'm not interested in flying alone. Thanks!
  11. At the beginning the last statement from the instructor is "press the space bar to begin". The sim is not responding to the space bar to actually begin the tutorial. I've done this before, but I want to go through it again as I've been away for awhile and I now have the HOTAS Warthog and TrackIR. Any ideas why it won't start?
  12. On Win 7 x64 it is.... C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Mods\aircrafts\A-10C\Cockpit\Scripts\HUD\Indicator The file name is "HUD_init.lua", but the .lua will likely be hidden. Open the file with Notepad (I like Notepad++ better) it's the 2nd to the last line. Be sure to backup your original. Here's my HUD_init if you'd like to try it.
  13. Thanks all for this thread, that green pale HUD was driving me batty! I used to use a yellow HUD in Falcon, and have recreated it here with this: day_color = {255/255, 255/255, 0/255, 255/255} I have not changed the night color. I used this site to pick the color: http://html-color-codes.info/ (it is also referenced on page 2 of this thread I think) It is: FFFF00 I find it works for me, but may tweak it over time now that I can make my HUD any color I want!
  14. I've worked my way through the three or so leading up to it, now the startup mission seems broken. I'm fully updated. Any ideas? Thanks.
