After the OB patch today this isn't working anymore for, anybody else have the same issue? I deactivated the mod before the patch and then reactivated.

Just tested and it's still working here after the patch. Maybe something went wrong when you reactivated the mod?

Thanks, I'll try again tonite!

 

ETA: I re-unzipped the mod, reinstated it, and ow it works again. Weird - there must have been a hiccup somewhere.

 

Thanks for your help!

I'm running openbeta and extracted the zip files to

 

C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Mods\aircraft\AJS37\Cockpit\scripts\KNEEBOARD

 

 

which gives me 'indicator' and 'pages' directories, with all the nice kneeboard pages.

 

 

However, in the Viggen I still get the standard kneeboard. I tried to follow the procedure in https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=3036780 but this mentions an init.lua that should be present in KNEEBOARD/indicator/CONTENT. This file is not present in my directory. What do I need to do to get this mod working?

Mod goes into the DCS installation folder not Saved Games.

I've extracted the files to the following folder:

 

C:\ProgramFiles\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\aircraft\AJS37\Cockpit\scripts\KNEEBOARD\indicator\CONTENT

 

Starting DCS Open Beta and opening the Kneeboard with Right Shift - K only display the regular kneeboard.

 

Are there furter steps I should follow?

Put the pages directory from the mod into the pages directory from DCS. I think you have misplaced the files.

You are correct!

 

This is the correct path:

 

C:\ProgramFiles\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\aircraft\AJS37\Cockpit\scripts\KNEEBOARD\pages

Ehm, what is the difference between the lua based mod/OvGME version and simply dropping the pgns into C:\Users\....\Saved Games\DCS\Kneeboard\AJS37?

 

 

Both seem to work just fine, but i'd like to know whether i miss out on some cool functionality that might come with the lua mod version :).

 

 

BTW: i really dig the 60/70s yellowish paper typewriter style you have managed to pull off!

When I created the mod, the "lua based" method was the only one working. Nothing more, nothing less.

 

I was not even aware, that you can now simply put them in the Saved Games folder ;) But that's even better :)

 

BTW, credit for the background goes to HB. I shamelessly used what was already in the Viggen folder :D :music_whistling:

Ah ok. Have been using the pages for quite some time as simple kneeboard pages like for all other modules. Was not even aware there were issues when you released this. Anyway, thanks again, they look awesome and are pretty handy.

Btw; if you happen to have those pngs collated as a pdf with "no resolution" as a source, would be really nice if you could upload this as well so people can create their own images for the kneeboard at whatever resolution they desire. I think 768x1024 is fine right now, but might be a bit on the low end for 4k sreens etc.

Well, you find the "sources" on github https://github.com/funkyfranky/MyKneeboardsDevel/tree/master/modules/ajs37

 

But it is still a bit of work to convert it to a final png ;)

Thanks a lot

De rien :)

 

You might want to check out the version on github:

 

https://github.com/funkyfranky/MyKneeboards

 

https://github.com/funkyfranky/MyKneeboardsDevel

 

Especially the Devel version. This contains more source like files. I used gimp and LaTeX in case you are familiar with those.

@funkyfranky just found an error in the CK37 input codes list. It says 581 to enable and 580 to disable the TERNAV but its the other way round: 580 to enable and 581 to disable. It's written so in the manual and works that way in sim too.

Thanks, good catch mate @Desert Fox! When I have time, I will correct that.

Great mod! Now I don't have to do ALt-Tab every time to get into the manual and remember the codes for TAKT and other necessary information. Thank you very much!
