Thank you Captain Hawk , I'm up for new HOTAS set up though as my 15 year old CH gear is finally starting to give up the ghost.Got very good value out of it so I'm not complaining.Think i'll go Thrustmaster warthog or Virpil set up this time with some crosswind rudder pedals.

My Kneeboardbuilder app crashes when trying to apply a profile. It had been working up until a few days ago when I tried to create a new profile and apply it. The error in the second section says something about can't find a directory. I checked my preferences and the saved games and DCS directory are set correctly. Not sure what changed to cause this.

The event viewer shows

When I had a Kneeboardbuilder crash,
kind of hidden, the kneeboard (VR) showed in the wrong place, half a kneeboard to the right, half not visible

it broke my
"x:..\DCS <>\Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Cockpit\Scripts\device_init.lua"

and DCS refused to load F/A-18C

I don't resize/move my kneeboard now, works OK (I have it for the mission variables/parameters/freq.)

The minimum is 825 x 1275 pixels, but you can put bigger images and DCS will scale them down.

Hi everyone, I just installed this, loaded up a couple pages I wanted, and clicked build custom kneeboard. However, from there I am unable to select modify profiles under options, it is grayed out. Any help would be appreciated!

What's the source of this information? Most sources seem to say 768 x 1024 pixels (3:4 ratio), which with a quick sample check is also the size of kneeboards distributed with DCS. 825 x 1275 is also a different ratio. Has it changed, or is the information incorrect?

Hi, You are completely right, the default size used by DCS is 768 x 1024 ... my mistake, sorry.


PS: However, the actual kneeboard windows as drawn on my 1920 x 1080 monitor is actually 535 x 800 pixels, for an aspect ratio of 1.5 ... if I place on the kneeboard an image of 768 x 1024 it ends up looking distorted on its width.

How do you guys make the kneeboard images more clear to see and be able to read in VR? I tried to increase font size before importing but did not help.
