Hi volker,
thank you for purchasing aInstruments !


Currently it is not possible to move instrument display on Android device, because it is always centered.


There are many new features which will come to next versions and display offset is one of them.


Next version 2.4 will contain bugfix for:
- incorrect UFC westing/northing for Hornet auto coordinate entering
- fix for Harrier UFC


I can implement y-axis offset for instruments in this version via config parameter (and later via GUI)


Cheers
colo

Hi,
new version 2.4 is out:
- added auto inserting of waypoint coordinates from map for AV-8B Harrier (added 5 new keys to keybindings)
- added option for moving of instruments on x,y axis on Android devices (usefull for cockpit developers)
- changed coordinates inserting for waypoints and JDAM - now uses only precise GPS map format (improved reliability)
- fixed easting/westing bug when auto inserting waypoint coordinates from map on F-18C Hornet
- fixed messed up bottom row UFC buttons on F-18 Hornet UFC
- fixed non working Harrier . and - UFC buttons
- revorked GUI menu on desktop


Please note:
- for Harrier auto waypoint entry to be functional, you must update your keybindings file from aInstruments desktop app
- for waypoint and JDAM/JSOW auto coordinates, only GPS precise coordinates on DCS World map are now supported
- if you have used auto ins coordinates before, please update "mapw" setting to 350 pixels in config.txt file

Hi y905,
that's nice cockpit setup.


BTW have you try borderless option in app - so buttons on tablet isn't displayed ?


Or then, the picture is too large to fit inside your MFDs frames ?

Hi Colo, thank you very much, i am happy that i was able to hide the chaotic g-seat pneumatic wiring inside the pit and have purchased your great app, yes it tried the borderless option but yes the bottomless option is a little bit too large but i was very satiesfied with the current solution, thanks again for your great support, btw i preordered the f16 modul, did you plan later a f16 version, if so i were happy to buy it, Volker

Hi Volker,
I will implement zoom of instruments in borderless mode in next version, so it will be possible to define gap between android device frame and instrument screen.


Yes I have preorder F-16 module too,

and I will implement F-16 MFDs in aInstruments

- once implemented, you can just switch to F-16 instruments, no more purchases needed.


Cheers,
colo
