Cargo-Cam Mi-8

Okay, this is untested, but should work.

 

First, look in this file:

 

Mods\aircraft\Mi-8MTV2\Cockpit\Scripts\CargoIndicator\CargoIndicator_page.lua

 

and look for this line (on or around line 29):

 

base.init_pos = {aspect-box_width, 1.0-box_height}

 

The variable "aspect" is your screen width relative to height of 1.0, so "aspect - box_width" says that the left edge of the box, should be exactly a box width (0.25) from the right edge of the screen.

 

Similarly, "1.0 - box_height" will indicate the top of the screen minus box height (0.25).

 

If you want the cargo camera, say, at the bottom center of the screen, you could change this line to:

 

base.init_pos = {(aspect-box_width)/2, 0}

 

Play with those values, to get it where you want.

 

Let me know if you have more questions.

The method described in post #3 here https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=136046 works for me in single monitor. Not sure if it applies to trip monitor.

Thanks for your answers.

Previously, I changed the position as in this thread but that does not work anymore. If I change the Monitor.lua does not appear in the settings.

 

With the proposal of gospadin i can move a Part from the CargoCam. But i dont find a way to change the Position from the circles in this.

On the screenshot from the rhigtside of the Monitors still is the small circle in the upper right corner.

Maybe I find the right part to have everything in the same place :music_whistling:

Thank you.

My main display for DCS comprises of three 1920 x 1080 screens, physically positioned side-by-side, configured as a single screen (5760 x 1080) using AMD Eyefinity

 

I also have a 1920 x 1080 touchscreen for Helios

 

In DCS, my screen size is set to 7680 x 1080

 

By default, the Mi-8 Cargo Indicator appears in the top right-hand corner of the touchscreen.

 

I would like to reposition the indicator so that it appears on the main display. I would like it to appear on right-hand side of the centre screen ideally a quarter of the way down from the top right-hand corner.

 

I have tried suggestions in this and other similar posts, but none have provided a satisfactory result.

 

Can anyone tell me how to move the green box and components within the green box?
