Kneeboard Builder (windows app)


Recommended Posts

Kneeboard settings is not available as a selection on my version, which is the new version.. perhaps i need to go to pre-beta because "kneeboard settings" must have gotten missed in the beta, because there is no way to adjust. i will get the stable version and see what i got and thanks all who helped with this thread

 

So you don't have this window appear when you select Options/Preferences?

unfortunately the kneeboard builder is not compatible with actual DCS version, (i though from 2.5.5) there are a lot of other issue for example you loose the spitfire PIT, with dynamic kneeboard the load time it take several minutes before start. i uninsulated it ...sadly because it was a very useful tool

Hello,

 

I get the same error, however I tried the prior version 1.7.1 and that one works well.

 

If you want to try it, uncompress this zip on you current KB folder (so that it takes your current configuration) overwriting the newer version (if you want, make a backup first):

Strange, it works for me:

and the error you get is different than the one of the OP .. are you running the software as Admin, isn't it?

A few files changed that are causing the crash with the latest DCS update. I'm working on trying to get a fix put together and hope to push it out within the next day or so. I appreciate your patience.

 

EDIT:

 

It appears to be an issue with the C-101. Until I come up with a permanent fix, for now if you are not flying the C-101 you can rename the 'entry.lua' located at '...\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\aircraft\C-101\entry.lua' (ie entry_old.lua) and Kneeboard Builder should start working for you again. Please let me know if you still have issues.

Hello, glad to see you here ... just wanted to tell you how much I’ve enjoyed your software over the years, I use it a lot as writing my own procedures is the best way I’ve found to learn an aircraft quickly .. a heartfelt thank you and wish you the best. :thumbup:

This fixed it for me - just renamed the C-101 file while using the Kneeboard builder and then named it back:thumbup:

I used Kneeboard Builder after quite some time again to import parts of the Supercarrier guide. However, I must have forgotten to check some box or something, because Kneeboardbuilder deleted all my previous manually created png files in the F14 and F/A-18C, sadly I have no backup (wich is stupid, I know).

 

Is there a folder where Kneeboard builder puts these files, my Windows Trashbin is empty.

 

Not that big of a deal to find all the RIO stuff I had again but would be nice if Kneeboard builder would just paste them into the bin (or some folder), not delete them straight away.

Your imported png files are saved in the main Kneeboard Builder folder in the 'Kneeboard Groups' folder.

I am still stucked! Cannot edit the profiles. Installed in a new drive, folder...etc

 

It sounds like either your DCS directory or your Saved Games directory is not pointing to the right directories in the preferences page.

 

Try using a 'custom' setup in preferences and set your Saved Games to point directly at '.../Saved Games/DCS.openbeta'

Is there anyway to set a default profile, I have quite a number and it always defaults to the A-10C which appears first in my list.:doh:
