Talking iControl DCS 3.0 Released - New Free Version!

Alrighty boys and girls, it's been a while, but iControl DCS 3.0 is finally released (May take a while to propagate to all App Stores) along with a new server version.

A-10 Virtual Cockpit Free
A-10 VC Free is a limited functionality, ad supported version of its big brother iControl DCS. It is completely free. It has the combo MFCD, UFC, ILS, TACAN, Caution Warning, and a few other controls.

It's a great way to give the application a try so you can see how well the MFCD export performs for you. You get all the server benefits of the paid version, screen setup, easy script install, etc.

So tell all your friends that are on the fence that they can try it now!

Changes for iControl DCS
  • New icon
  • Significant increase in MFCD frame rates in the combo view
  • Double tap to zoom in and out of MFCDs
  • Improvements in connection handling, disconnects, etc.
  • New controls:
    • Throttle control via "Control Surfaces" button - this feature is experimental and may be removed in future versions.
    • Flaps
    • Coolie Hat on zoomed MFCD
    • Slew on zoomed MFCD
  • Many performance enhancements
  • Minor bug fixes

Changes for A-10 VC Server (Works with both A-10 VC Free and iControl DCS)
  • Installer! No more unzipping!
  • New name, new icon
  • One application. Works with both A10VC Free and iControl DCS
  • Native versions for x86 and x64
  • Complete re-design of MFCD/CDU capture, faster and less PC resource intensive
  • Ability to limit the frame rate captured
  • Sim connection status
  • Aero toggle - automatically disable Aero when the server starts
  • Better detection of invalid configurations and guidance on resolving issues
  • Improved debug logging
  • Bug fixes and performance enhancements
  • Requires Windows Vista or higher. Windows XP is not supported.

Check out the website at http://www.bit-shift.com for more information on iControl DCS, A10 Virtual Cockpit Free, and A10 Virtual Cockpit Server.

Thanks to everyone who's supported this project so far and for all the positive feedback. This is a great community and I'm not done yet... there's more coming in the next few months so stay tuned to twitter and the forums!

Thanks for the update, everything works great!

Is it possible to have iControl working at the same time as Helios?
I guess they are both using the export.lua, no idea how to combine them

I'd just like the option to expand the mfd windows beyond 500 pixels (or whatever) I only use the cdu function of icontrol dcs and display my right mfd over 90% of my 2nd 24" monitor, somat a max of 500 pixels it leaves a lot of screen space.

You would have to manually combine the export scripts. In the future I may look into ways to make this a little easier. For now unless you're willing to hand edit files, you can only use one or the other

I'll make a note of this for the next version of the server. 500x500 quite high resolution when exporting to the iPad, any higher would be a waste and just use more CPU unnecessarily. But given your use case I understand why you'd want to. I'll think about adding an override via holding shift while dragging or manually editing the dimensions in the editor.
