I cannot seem to open the rar file with any of my unzip programs. What have you been using?


I finally got it open with WinZip, but not with 7zip or winrar. Weird.

Do the viewport coordinates on the right Helios monitor now use negative numbers or do they start at 0,0?
I have two 1920x1080 monitors.
What you want is 1920,0 for main monitor.

The top left corner of any screen (physical or programmatic) is always 0,0 as convention, and the coordinate goes from 0 to width-1, which is why you want the monitor on the right to start with 1920 instead of 1921 to prevent pixel column width of 1 gap in between.

What you could do to make your life easier is to put some constants saying, for example,
Code:
M1_WIDTH=1920;
M1_HEIGHT=1080;
M2_WIDTH=1920;
M2_HEIGHT=1080;
so you won't easily mess up in calculations and stuff.

Excellent quality as always, and in remarkably quick time.

Now just tailoring it to my set-up. Looking forward to flying with it

Thanks again.

how do you put this in the monitor config file?
M1_WIDTH=1920; M1_HEIGHT=1080; M2_WIDTH=1920; M2_HEIGHT=1080;

Anywhere that it's scope is visible to the viewports want to reference these.

If you are not familiar with the concept of scope for programming, basically this means: put this anywhere not inside braces and before the viewport definitions that want to use these constants.

I have a monitor underneath my main screen that is a touchscreen, will the touchscreen work with Helios?

This is a neat trick to locate the screen coordinates of your viewports in the cockpit:

Got it up and running and it is a thing of beauty, thanks CaptZeen!

If anybody needs a screenconfig, I run these coordinates for a 4k main screen with a 1080p touch below it, vertically arranged and aligned on the left edge for coordinates.

These values work for me, main screen is 3840x2160, touchscreen is 1920x1080 and DCS overall resolution is 3840x3240.

Code:
Viewports =
{
	Center =
	{
		x = 0;
		y = 0;
		width = 3840;
		height = 2160;
		viewDx = 0;
		viewDy = 0;
		aspect = 1.777778;
	}
}

-- Viewport to place GUI and menu on
GUI =	{
			x = 0;
			y = 0;
			width = 3840;
			height = 2160;
		}


-- Bind GUI and tactical map to main screen only
UIMainView = GUI
		
		
-- Kneeboard config to show up on the main screen in the bottom right corner
KNEEBOARD =
{
x = 3312;
y = 1370;
width = 526;
height = 789;
}

-- Export for F/A-18C

--LEFT DDI
F18_LEFT =
{
     x = 283;
     y = 2355;
     width = 380;
     height = 380;
}


--RIGHT DDI
F18_RIGHT =
{
     x = 1261;
     y = 2355;
     width = 380;
     height = 380;
}

-- RWR
F18_RWR =
{
     x = 1496;
     y = 2882;
     width = 174;
     height = 174;
}

--AMPCD
F18_AMPCD =
{
     x = 772;
     y = 2850;
     width = 376;
     height = 354;
}

--IFEI
F18_IFEI =
{
     x = 153;
     y = 2914;
     width = 524;
     height = 203;
}

--UFC
F18_UFC =
{
     x = 741;
     y = 2190;
     width = 455;
     height = 263;
}

-- END F/A-18C
