Default Getting ready for JF-17 Launch

JF-17 has a lot of buttons to push , so i decided to make a MATRIC deck for it.

This is work in progress
deck for JF-17, for use on 10' Android tablets in landscape orientation. When JF-17 arrives, I'll update it with key bindings and add more stuff, maybe play around with lua export to get buttons and UFCP displays in sync with DCS

WOAH, is this some new magic software I was unaware of?

No, it's not MAGIC, it's MATRIC (pun intended)

And it is rather recent 9/2019 (and not specifically made for DCS), so it is not widely known.

Holy F***, and here I was looking at voice attack and giving my voice data to microsoft for free to save some buttons and axes.

@loopback any chance you guys could look into this and help it become cleaner and more effective. It'll be a really nice touch. Also maybe add support for smaller screens?

How does Matric differ from Touch Portal?

MATRIC is amazing if you have a couple of spare android tablets you can use. Its simple, works straight away, and the drag and drop implementation is superb.

If the JF17 setups that Anarchy is making don't quite suit your needs, you can literally drag/copy/paste the buttons exactly how you like.

Do try it.

In my opinion (note: I am the MATRIC developer, but I'll be objective) MATRIC is more suited for DCS the Touch Portal. I will not compare apps in general, just related to DCS.
While Touch Portal has its advantages (if you're streamer and use something other then OBS Studio or use Apple devices), MATRIC has 4 key advantages when it comes to DCS:

1) Low level keyboard emulation (distinguishes between left/right Win/Ctrl/Shift/Alt and can use Win + <key> shortcuts). Touch Portal can't do that.

2) Community gallery featuring many DCS decks and templates. TP has only a few preset grids available on their web (6), none for DCS (or any other game/sim for that matter). MATRIC Community Gallery currently has 10 DCS decks alone.

3) Integration API makes 2-way integration possible between MATRIC and a 3rd party app (as shown in DCS example)

4) More freedom in designing layouts so you can make more convincing and functional panels, displays etc. Touch Portal currently supports only grids of square buttons.

P.S. 5) Dev is DCS fan, and MATRIC is roughly half the price of TP
