I assume that you have to put the mission and radio freq LUA files in the appropriate kneeboard, but I cannot seem to do that. Please advise. Also, what is the little miz button for? to load the correct mission for the LUA files?
Thanks

Sorry for not having put together the manual yet.

The dynamic kneeboard group is located in the 'General DCS World Kneeboard' available groups.

1) Go to the 'Create Custom Kneeboard' tab and select 'General DCS World Kneeboard' in the 'Select Aircraft' drop down box.

2) In the 'Available Groups' section you should see the 'Default Dynamic' group. Click on the 'Default Dynamic' group and click on the right arrow to move it to the 'Groups Selected for Custom Kneeboard' section.

3) Now you can click on the 'Build Custom Kneeboard for General DCS World' to add it to the General Kneeboard and make the dynamic kneeboards visible in all aircraft. Or you can select a specific aircraft with the 'Select Aircraft' drop down box and then click on the 'Build Custom Kneeboard' button to add the dynamic kneeboards only to your selected aircraft's kneeboard.

There is nothing more you need to do to use the dynamic kneeboards. You don't need Kneeboard Builder open for them to work and you don't need to make any changes to your kneeboard before each mission. Anytime you fly a mission in DCS World the kneeboard should automatically collect all of the necessary data from the mission file.

The .miz button allows you to build the selected kneeboard groups directly into a mission. Kneeboards built directly into the mission will automatically display in your Kneeboard everytime you fly that mission, irrespective of what is already in you custom kneeboard. This is especially useful for mission designers to include kneeboard pages necessary for their mission so that they are automatically visible in the kneeboard anytime someone flies that mission.

I hope all of that made sense. One of these days I hope to find the time to get some legitimate tutorials made.

Hi AlaskanGrizzly

I know you have put an enormous amount of time and effort into creating and updating this software. It's no small feat. So thanks for all you do.

Unfortunately, I cannot get the software to work.
I do have Win7 64 ; After Unzipping to a location of my choice I sent the Kneeboard.exe shortcut to my desktop for easy access (the orig .exe file doesn't work either .. so it's not the shortcut).

The first time I tried to open it, it did an Update so now I have the most recent version 1.6.2.0.
I have read the ReadMe file and tried to Delete the 2 files you indicated. However, I only had the "KneeboardBuilder.exe.config" but I did NOT see the "settings.xml" file mentioned.

After multiple attempts and a reboot, I downloaded the new updated version/zip file and tried that.
BTW- I notice there is no Installation required other than to Unzip the file to a folder .. in my case I unzipped it to my E Drive folder called "Kneeboard Builder" and sent that .exe shortcut to my desktop.

Also, I already have NetFramework 4.5 with a ton of related Windows Updates and I did download an install GhostScript as instructed.
So I believe I have followed ALL of the Instructions to a "T" but I cannot figure out why this isn't working.

FYI- what Does happen when I double click on the KneeboardBuilder.exe is an error stating "Kneeboard Builder has Stopped Working ... Windows can check online .. bla bla bla ... OR Close the Program"

Got any ideas ?

SnowTiger,

Right after you try running Kneeboard Builder, could you save your Windows Even Logs and PM them to me?
(Start> right click "my computer"> manage> Event Viewer> Windows Logs>Right click on Application> save all events as> save the logs as Event Files)

Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.

AlaskanGrizzly,

I have tried to use the dynamic kneeboard both in single player and multiplayer, and in both instances I cannot get the dynamic pages to display.

For the General DCS kneeboard I set the following:


There are no dynamic pages after the included graphics in the top 3 checklists; the kneeboard goes directly from the SAM list to the route chart. However, there are a series of blank pages right after the route charts (basically the graphic showing how to load the battery that indicates no page). Same issue happened to another guy I fly with.

Everything else works perfectly. If I'm not doing anything wrong, then I hope this bug report helps.
