I need help getting helios connected to DCS, I'm at the point where I need to add the Helios folder and export.lua to my Saved games/Scripts folder, but I can't find those files anywhere to download them.

You don't have to do any of that yourself. You no longer download scripts either in version 1.6. Each profile will come with any export module that it might need embedded in the profile. Helios will guide you through configuration and install the files for you.

Here's a video showing how you install a Helios 1.6 profile.

If you need more help, please join the Helios Support Discord, because it is much easier to answer questions there: https://discord.gg/qtvdVWc

The second release of Helios 1.6 is available. This is the "immediate follow up" release to roll up bugs that were discovered during the first release. Right now it is marked as a pre-release so that it does not push automatically to all users. If you want to help out, please install it and make sure it works well, before I set it to push to all users in a few days.

Hi Gang,
I was just wondering if Phidgets or other lighting systems interfaces will be added in the future.
Keep up the good work!
-Thanks,

So far the update is working nicely, including the export.lua changes.

Helios has always had a Phidgets 2.1 interface but I think it rusted / decayed a bit. I don’t know if it currently works but it’s in there.

I wrote my own Phidgets 2.2 interface as a plugin. It is not currently distributed but I am open to collaboration.
