  1. The short version: I have come to realize that I am not able to work on DCS-BIOS while working a full time job that requires a similar skillset. That means I will not work on expanding or supporting DCS-BIOS until circumstances change, and that will probably not happen. The long version: I started getting into DCS and later building DCS-BIOS because I am fascinated by complex systems. This worked out well while I was still studying computer science; it provided me an outlet to do some programming close to the hardware while the curriculum developed more and more towards the theoretical si
  2. Try adding a small delay between commands. As far as I can tell, commands for a particular control will be ignored while DCS is still animating that control. If you send multiple commands in the same UDP packet or within a very short time interval, they might even be processed in the same simulation frame. I am also not sure if you could issue the same command twice in one frame even when no animations were involved. The unreliability of UDP tends not to be an issue on a LAN or localhost unless you have a huge amount of data to transfer and manage to fill up all of the buffers.
  3. The callback function receives the value as a function parameter (named newValue in the code snippets). Try the following: AirSpeedConvert = newValue;
  4. Can you post a screenshot of what you do see?
  5. Da gehen mir langsam die Ideen aus. Der Rest vom Webinterface funktioniert ja, d.h. es gibt auch keine Firewall, die sich in die Websocket-Verbindung einmischt. Du kannst mal im Browser F12 drücken, dann geht die Developer-Console auf. Da gibt es einen "Console"-Tab, wo manchmal Fehlermeldungen landen. Ich könnte dir anbieten, dass wir uns das am Wochenende mal im Discord gemeinsam ansehen.
  6. Here is the script that I have been running over the last week or so to test the new "Hub Scripts" feature. It implements the following: Makes my Harrier UFC, ODU and MPCD panels work in the Hornet (Harrier TMR = Hornet A/P, Harrier ALT = Hornet D/L) In the Harrier, whenever the UFC would be blank otherwise, it displays the status of the AFC and ALT HOLD switches and allows to toggle them via the option select buttons. You can also enter or leave this display mode by pressing the (non-functional in DCS) "I/P" button on a physical Harrier panel. How to use: Save anywhere on you
  7. New Release: v0.10.0 fix IntegerBuffer code snippet (add missing mask and shift_by values) IntegerBuffer snippet is now prioritized over the ServoOutput snippet document Potentiometer code snippet and expose the parameters for the EWMA filter remove "Installed Modules" list (now that module definitions are being installed as plugins, this list will most likely be identical to the list of all available module definitions anyway. Create a bookmark in your browser to quickly find your favorite module.) add "Hub Scripts" feature (the DCS-BIOS Hub can now run Lua scripts that can remap
  8. Die F-18C ist im DCSFlightpanels-Fork entstanden, und da gab es einige Updates, bei denen sich Adresssen geändert haben. Ich hatte damals nicht dokumentiert, wie man Updates macht, ohne dass sich die Adressen ändern, und die DCSFlightpanels-Nutzer haben es nicht bemerkt, weil DCSFlightpanels jedes mal die Adresse anhand des Namens naschschlägt. Das erklärt aber nicht, warum die Live-Daten nicht funktionieren. Ich habe gerade mal DCS-BIOS 0.9.3 neu installiert und mit der F-18C getestet (anhand des UFC-Displays). Mit Edge und Chrome hat es wunderbar funktioniert, Firefox ist mir immer ein
  9. SkyJunky: Für welches Flugzeug hast du dein Cockpit gebaut? Wenn du in der neuen Control Reference auf "MetadataEnd" > "Metadata" klickst, wird dort der "Update Counter"? immer erhöht oder funktioniert selbst das nicht? (Der ist ja in allen Modulen immer an der gleichen Adresse.) Ist im Menüpunkt "DCS Connection" der Haken bei "Virtual Cockpit" gesetzt? (wenn nicht, dann benutzt du den alten Export.lua-Code mit der neuen DCS-BIOS-Version; wenn sich da die Adressen geändert haben würde das erklären, warum keine Daten angezeigt werden) Welchen Browser benutzt du? (Es sollte zwar in
  10. The problem that a DCS-BIOS-based simpit can only be used with one aircraft module will be solved in the very near future by adding Lua scripting to the DCS-BIOS Hub. It's already running on my machine and I think I have found an API design that I am happy with now, so I'll probably release it some time next week. If you use DCS-BIOS, you have two options: connect everything via USB or use an RS-485 bus. Connecting everything over USB is not as annoying as it used to be, as the DCS-BIOS Hub has a graphical user interface where you select the COM ports you want to connect to and it rememb
  11. If you can, spend about $100 on a decent temperature-controlled soldering station (Hakko FX-888 or similar). For peace of mind, make sure it has an auto-power-off feature. If you have to use a cheap "starter kit" iron without temperature control (definitely possible, I used one for a few years), make sure to avoid lead-free solder. The cheap irons will not match the higher melting point for the lead-free stuff, and while you can still make working lead-free solder joints with one, it is an exercise in frustration. You can write your Arduino sketch in such a way that different string
  12. New Release: v0.9.3 If you are not using DCSFlightpanels, you can skip this version. Keep a copy of all control reference JSON files from plugins at %APPDATA%\DCS-BIOS\control-reference-json If you are using DCSFlightpanels, point it to C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\DCS-BIOS\control-reference-json so it can find the information in one central place again. Please post comments in the DCS-BIOS Discussion Thread. Please open separate threads for questions.
  13. A "recommended plugin" is one that matches one of your DCS: World modules. For example, if the folder "mods/aircraft/A-10C" exists in one of your DCS: World installation folders, the DCS-BIOS Hub will recommend the "module-a-10c" plugin. If a plugin is not recommended but should be, it means I have not updated the catalog file with the correct installation path yet. The "recommended" status says nothing about the quality or completeness of a plugin. I am not the author of the F-16 module definition and I also don't own or fly the F-16 module, so I don't know how complete it is.
  14. New Release: v0.9.2 This fixes the missing info in the control reference. Let's hope this is the last thing I broke in v0.9.0. Please post comments in the DCS-BIOS Discussion Thread. Please open separate threads for questions.
