Default Digital MFD Cards

Hey there,

I wonder if it would be possible to make a script, wich allows you to show mappings of TM MFDs on second monitor. Like "digital MFD Cards" (The most simple one would probably be a window showing a png or jpg). I´m no native english speaker and it is difficult for me to explain Can anybody unterstand what I´m talking about? Are there any talented Coders out there how can do that ?

Thanks

It's still very much a work in progress, but it does exactly what you're looking for.

Hmmm, I wonder, is it just a static image? Even with VR, I'd love to be able to see the MFDs. I peek through the bridge of my nose. I'll have to give it a shot if USB Lilliput drivers play nice with Rift. They haven't for three years so I"m not holding out hope. LOL. Although if it works, I could go with a VGA/HDMI small monitors. Hmm, another thing to check out. Thank you HomeFries.

It is just a static image, though you can tweak the XML config to position the individual MFDs across your monitors. They don't need to be part of the monitors covered by DCS (in fact, they should be separate).

And thank mmcintosh; he's the author. FWIW, we're trying to get it so we can launch the appropriate overlays from within my TARGET profile.

Are you trying to make the static images be context aware? So if you drill down, the static image would change? Or just aircraft aware at the main MFD "page"
