It is totally easy to put an mfd screen on an tablet by the way.
Just download I display an transfer the MFD to the display....

The trick are the buttons. I asked ED to bring an update to allow snapview porting to external screens, but that's not working.

Anyhow, if we can have an app for that, that's maybe even better....

It should be able to use "Helios"-gauges/switches on Android...
;-) So everybody can compose his own needs...

By the way: Does it work via WLAN or USB-Cable?

Helios is great profi software, curently I am not able to implement it.
Implementing and increasing details for MFCD and CDU will be enough for me for several months.

It works via WLAN - it connects to PC ip address.

OK, I did as described:
Basic F-15C TEWS display that connected via export.lua to DCS World/FC3.
I did all your stuff completely, but it doesn´t work here.

Quote:
Initial beta
Please use following exportTWS.lua file for export from DCS:
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7tSPZhl7CP2NGRDcGxqeEc2Z1E/edit?usp=sharing CHECK
Instructions:
1. Create directory $HOME\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts\ CHECK
2. Copy export.lua from C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Scripts to $HOME\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts\ CHECK
3. Copy the above telemetryTWS.lua file into $HOME\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts\ directory. CHECK
4. Add the following line at the end in export.lua to:
dofile( "C:\\Users\\[username]\\Saved Games\\DCS\\Scripts\\telemetryTWS.lua ") LOOK AT QUESTIONS BELOW
5. Change [username] to your user name CHECK
6. Edit telemetryTWS.lua and change IP to Android table IP. You can check it in the android setting view for WiFi connection CHECK
7. Start the application on the device CHECK

Please note that it is very early beta, any feedback is welcome
So I did all the CHECK-marked stuff, but please take a look this:
- Is all bold marked stuff correct?
- I´ve downloaded an "ExportTWS.lua", not "telemetryTWS.lua"
- Do I have to rename the "exportTWS.lua" to "telemetryTWS.lua" (or rename inside a .lua-File?)
- Are the double-slashes // correct?
- What about the red brackets [] ..? Do I have to delete them?

Maybe you could help me, i´ll try run it on a Samsung Galaxy S2
(if it works there)

PS: Seems to be a little complicated, if you have dynamic IPs in your WLAN.
But I hope, you´ll get a good working MFCD-App (with the "TM Cougar MFCD-switches" simulated on touchscreen!)

I have made skeleton for CDU.
It works, but have ugly buttons and big lag.

The question is if I can use button bitmaps from game or should I ask Flying legends (as copyright holder for DCS) for permission.
