Kneeboard Builder (windows app)


Recommended Posts

But if there's a bug or something not working with a new model, I would be hard pressed to say anything encouraging about the prospects of getting a resolution.

 

This software was provided for free by its author six years ago, it is understandable if he no longer has time to dedicate to it.

 

At least he still keeps his webpage up and the software has been updated a lot of times, to the point that it still works on the current DCS ... and it recognized my A-10C II with no problem at all:

he has not connected since November 20th .. hopefully it’s just real life issues and not a health one.

In 1.8.0.4, when I try to select a new Kneeboard location using profile selection, I get the dialog box saying Value cannot be null. Parameter name: path.

 

I have run as administrator, I've tried replacing the files, and I can't clear the error regardless of which profile I select. Any ideas for a workaround?

 

EDIT: Win 10 with DCS 2.5.6.55960

I have the same problem so I emailed the developer. He got back with me and said the following:

It appears that the problem may be having flaming cliffs installed together with the standalone flaming cliffs planes; creating a duplicate loop in Kneeboard Builder that makes it unresponsive. I’m working on figuring out a fix for it.

 

I only have Su-33 installed, so I tried uninstalling that but it didn't help. Hoping for an update to fix this but I understand the software is old and the developer probably doesn't have time to dedicate any longer.

I have used Kneeboard Builder to reposition and resize kneeboards successfully so far, but I’m having problems with F16 Viper. If I start up Kneeboard Builder, and then jump in to the cockpit, I miss most of my cockpit textures. Running a repair fixes that.

 

I’ve seen some posts others having the same issue, but not really a fix for that. Any pointers how to resolve?

Try deleting these two files:

 

"...\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\aircraft\F-16C\Cockpit\Scripts\device_init.lua"

"...\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\aircraft\F-16C\Cockpit\Scripts\device_init_original.lua"

 

Then run DCS Repair and retry setting a custom kneeboard profile in Kneeboard Builder.

 

If you continue to run into issues please let me know at s13solutions@gmail.com.

Version 1.8.0.5 is now available.

 

-Fixed A-10C kneeboard profiles overwriting A-10C_2 kneeboard profiles

-Fixed crash when setting kneeboard profile for all aircraft

-Standalone FC3 aircraft and FC3 package aircraft now use separate kneeboard profiles (still use same kneeboard image directory though)

In the Options -> Preferences page, try setting your saved games path to point directly at your DCS saved games folder like "...\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta"

I have FC3 and got the Su-33 standalone with the Supercarrier, but I have never installed the Su-33 standalone. I think there may be something else at work as well.

I get the dialog box saying "Value cannot be null. Parameter name: path." Then it crashes.

 

I get the same error. "Value cannot be null. Parameter name: path." Then hangs.

Same error here, same crash/hang. Shame, as the main reason I'm using this is to reposition the kneeboard due to my multimonitor setup (by default it appears inside one of my external DDIs). KBB is also not detecting my 3rd party mod aircraft, such as A-4E.

hi Guys was wondering if any1 uses the Kneeboard with the F14 RIO as i cant get it to display, all works well when im the pilot but not a thing for Rio, is there something im missing ? Many thanks for any help or tips Phil

 

The RIO kneeboard is the same as the pilot kneeboard, and I don't have trouble with either station. Do you use custom bindings to bring up your kneeboard? If so, make sure you map them for both pilot and RIO.

Hi all,

 

Small problems with Kneeboard builder and the Syria map .

 

Can't display the imported kneeboard on the Syria map, while on all the other theaters it's OK...

Yet I find the cards in the file of DCS ...

 

Do you also have this problem?

 

Thank you

Is anyone else having trouble loading this app after downloading today's DCS update?

 

Maybe this update is the cause of my problem: "Upgrade cockpit kneeboard. Mouse drag and resize. Added clickable buttons for navigation and making bookmarks. Each new bookmark - new color. Route UI buttons callbacks to track."

Yes is it looks like they made some major upgrades to the in-game kneeboard which will likely render a portion of Kneeboard Builder obsolete. I'll have to put out a new update to Kneeboard Builder to compensate for the changes. I haven't had a chance to look at what has changed yet so I don't have a time frame on when you can expect a Kneeboard Builder update.

Currently kneeboard builder doesn't seem to be able to move all elements of kneeboard to correct position. My main use for kneeboard builder is mainly to reposition the kneeboard builder as it with extra screen for MFDs, kneeboard will render out of view.

Yes. I'm having the exact same issue. Just came here to post that exact thing.

 

Also, are the custom kneeboards for Syria still broken/missing?
