Mnemonic,

Nice tools. I ran into 2 issues:

1) when I ran the .exe, the screen looked like this



I had to "right click" and then hit "restore gauges" to get the normal gauges.

2) same issue as Grump. When I first open a mission, the screen said "connected". Once I hit "S" to start the mission, the screen became "disconnected". It happened for a MiG-29 mission that I created and the Quickstart Su-27 mission.

Thanks very much!

Nowi

Hmm... strange...

1 - Are you shure you extract INI file at the same directory that .exe?
2 - Send me to private message your "Error.log". It in the "LockOn1.1\Temp\" directory...

3 - what windows do you have?

And one more thing... You copy new VP export scripts to the LockOn?

It must be from new version. Old scripts does not work with new version of program

Hey guys, I'm a bit new to the whole touch buddy concept, can someone in the know tell me if it would be possible, albeit expensive, to build a cockpit of TFT's and have the actual instruments and switches from the game displayed on them. Ie if you had 2 17" TFT's in front of you and a 15" on each side, or a combination etc.

Or would Mnemonic's program be more suited to this?

OK, most of you know how TouchBuddy works. You have multiple tabs that display groups of buttons and/or modules, and each button can send user defined macro lists to the currently active window.



Now, with v1.3, I added a module that automatically creates a transparent area in selected tabs to allow other applications to be "seen" through it. The following is the same profile as the above picture, I just selected another tab.



The click-through module also allows the user to define where they want the named window moved to (relative to the TB window), and also tries to resize it as required. It also forces the "NOACTIVATE" flag into the named window state so you cannot accidently click on the displayed window and give it focus (which will minimize any full screen game window).

As the module can be placed on a layer, you can then define buttons to be on a higher layer, which will then cover parts of the transparent hole in the TB window. The second image shows the TB window with buttons placed on a higher layer, covering the transreparent area that should display the whole VP window underneath.

(BTW, when TB exits it will move the named window back to where it was, and attempts to return it to its original height/width).

NOTE: This has been tested only on my laptop, I`ll have to find some time to get the LUA stuff tested on my home gaming rig.
