DCS-BIOS: Overview and Announcements


FSFIan

Recommended Posts

Released v0.2.9 of the Arduino Library.

 

I forgot to post an announcement here for v0.2.8, so here's the changelog for both versions:

 

New in v0.2.8:

 

  • add ability to pass a custom map function to the ServoOutput class
  • provide DcsBios::piecewiseMap template function
  • adopt recommended file structure for Arduino libraries and add metadata file

 

New in v0.2.9:

  • fix more (const) char* related compiler warnings (ActionButton, Potentiometer)

 

 

Please post comments in the DCS-BIOS Discussion Thread.

Released v0.2.10 of the Arduino Library.

 

  • Added EWMA filter to DcsBios::Potentiometer. This should finally stop potentiometers from spamming the serial port. To tweak the filter parameters, use the DcsBios:otentiometerEWMA template instead (see Potentiometers.h for its definition).
  • provide both sendDcsBiosMessage and DcsBios::sendDcsBiosMessage. Both of these functions will now block again until the message has been transmitted successfully. The non-blocking variant has been renamed to DcsBios::tryToSendDcsBiosMessage.
  • fixed a bunch of compiler warnings (now compiles with -Wall -Werror in the Arduino IDE 1.8.2)
  • tried to improve the order in which inputs get the chance to send a message

 

Please post general comments and feedback in the DCS-BIOS Discussion Thread.

 

If you have questions or bug reports, please start a new thread.

Released DCS-BIOS v0.5.5.

 

Changes from 0.5.3:

  • A-10C: fix Emergency Trim Hat on the Emergency Flight Control Panel
  • Add improved connect-serial-port.cmd script (ask for COM port, fix an issue with Arduino Mega boards getting stuck in the bootloader by adding a small delay)

  • Added support for Bf 109 K-4, contributed by ArturDCS
  • Added support for P-51D, contributed by pdmarsh
  • Added support for L-39ZA, contributed by kadda11

 

Fixes and corrections:

No problem at all. Family, work and personal life come first. Thanks for the updates to DCS-BIOS.

New Module Profiles for DCS-BIOS

 

Since it is unclear when there might be an official update of DCS-BIOS, we want to make some new profiles available to the DCS-BIOS user community. These have been developed in support of DCSFlightpanels, but could be of use to others as well.

 

New Profiles

Spitfire LF Mk. IX

AJS-37 Viggen

SA342M Gazelle

SA342L Gazelle

SA342 Mistral Gazelle

 

In order to use these profiles, simply extract the attached zip file into your DCS Scripts folder:

 

C:\Users\xxx\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts

 

Allow all folders to merge and supporting files to be overwritten. As always, backup your original DCS-BIOS folder before making these changes.

 

I hope these profiles will prove useful.

 

Sincerely,

Paul

Is the AV- 8B being considered added to the bios?
I'm am also hoping for this. I want to display the radio channels on my diy SR Radio box

As stated in the very first post...

 

What to post where

 

This thread is for the announcement of new software releases only.

If you want to announce a new version of your DCS-BIOS-related software, post in this thread, including a link to your project's discussion thread.

The preferred way to report bugs is to open a new issue on GitHub.

Questions belong in a new thread. Let's avoid creating another 35-page monster.

For anything else, you can use the DCS-BIOS Discussion Thread.

Regards

John W

aka WarHog.

Can't seem to get hold of Ian to get my F/A-18C profile to DCS-BIOS, so I will add it here.

 

Simply unzip into Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Scripts\DCS-BIOS folder overwriting when asked.

 

Can't seem to link twice, file can be found here

Hi ,

As my last time i use this platform was 2 years ago by mading some POC to test arduino for UH—1U pit.

 

Now i like to try something new and create F-14 grip fir the upcoming module.

 

My qustion is :

Any way i can use arduino/dcs bios to made some Axis control for pich/roll and trust ?

Home Cockpit FA-18

 

Hello folks,

 

i am about to build my own homepit with functional switches etc.

Because I have no idea about DCS Bios and its tecnical functionalities is there any one who can give advice how to do so and what is needed?

 

Is it actualy possible to combine DCS F/A18 with DCS Bios for not only switches yet. Likely im also interested in Gaugs and indications for speed and barostaticals.

 

Best regards

:pilotfly:

Yes the code for the F-18 has been written and is very good. I am not sure about gauges as I never look at these, but buttons and switches and LEDs work great.

 

The DCS BIOS page has a great getting started guide. If you follow that page you will have a switch up and running n no time, after that it is your imagination that will limit you.

It seriously is simpler than you thing to get started.
