It would be nice to create and share a database. What do you say?

No effect, I'm afraid.

For the Spitfire, the file "device_init.lua" is datestamped 16/12/16 15:16 and is 6KB in size.

For the Uh-1H it is datestamped 04/11/2016 19:49 and is 14KB in size.

It seems improbable that this file would have become corrupt in more than one aircraft type, or that all of them would not be corrected by a repair.

I have the same problem in all three versions of DCS (Stable, OpenBeta and Open Alpha), with each of them having a totally separate Kneeboard Builder installation. I have even downloaded a separate version of KB for each.

As I say, I have seen several reports of identical cockpit corruption.

See, for example, the thread in DCS: Spitfire L. F. MK. IX\Bugs and Problems\ Transparent Spitfire.

So after having kneeboard builder installed for about a year without sitting down to go through the manual and all the options: i finally did just that today, and i must say, cheers mate. That will get proper order into things. An your dynamic kneeboards....just the most ingenious idea really!

But i have noticed or run into some issues and i am not totally sure whether its a bug (maybe the lastest 2.1.1 updates changed things around), something i have set up wrong, or is a bug in kneeboard builder itself.

1. The dynamic kneeboard in NTTR does not show the entire briefing for custom missions if it is more text than fits on one page. Is it supposed to make more than one page for very long briefings?
2. The dynamic navbeacons do not show the proper airfield names. And some airfields should have TACAM plus ILS data right? It shows only either or.
3. I have managed to change the kneeboard size for one aricraft only, the A-10c. It is not being applied to any other aircraft, despetite the profile being the only one set up for the 'All Aircraft' tab.
4. When i click on the change profile tab on the win7 taskbar icon, i get the following error message: ''Could not find a part of the dcs installation path ...blabla ...OpenAlpha\Mods\aircraft\Flaming Cliffs\Cockpit\KneeboardLeft\device_ini_original.l ua`.''
I don't own the Flaming Cliffs pack, but i have the standlone F-15c and Su-27. I have only one kneeboard installation folder which is configured for the open alpha version. I hav not set up the legacy and open beta as of yet.

By the way: posts on the previous couple of pages suggest kneeboard builder replaces an aicraft specific file called somehting like device_init.lua or device_init_original.lua. Some aircraft folders don't have that scripts folder and i have found that 'device_init_original.lua.' only for the A-10c, the only aircraft for which the kneeboard size has ben successfully change once.

I don't know, atm i feel like kneeboard builder is fine for managing the images of the different kneeboards. But the dynamic kneeboard pages and profiles with aircraft specific kneeboard size and placement seems to be troubled.

That was a bucket load of info, hope this does not discourage you. Does it all work dandy for you? Maybe its just my specific win 7/dcs setup. All other mods have been disabled via ovgme.

I apologize for the very long delay. I believe the issue is related to my work around code to get Kneeboard Builder to work with the MiG-21 and Viggen since their kneeboard logic is non-standard compared to the other modules. I've been getting hammered with mandatory overtime at work and I just haven't found the motivation lately to dig back through my code to fix it yet. (That and VR flying has kept me distracted too) It is on my to-do list though...
