Helios alternative?


Recommended Posts

Hi. I installed 2.5 and absolutely love it. However it porked Helios and it no longer works at all. I knew it would happen eventually but now I’m stuck. I’ve got no programming experience and all my controls are hooked into with Bodnar boards. The thing I loved with Helios is the ease of use and the off state for switches that don’t have an off signal. So long story short, is there any other alternative to Helios?

Helios still works in 2.5 no problem, if you want to look for an alternative, go for Ikarus (https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=179525).

Found out what the issue is but don't know how to fix it. It seems that Helios is not seeing the boadnar boards (button boxes) at all. Windows sees them just fine but Helios does not recognize them. When you add new interface they don't even show up. I have all the latest windows updates...anyone have any ideas why this happened. By the way I did a clean install of Helios and DCS 2.5 to no avail.

Try unplugging them rebooting then plug them back in keep trying rebooting with them unplugged you may need to rename directory’s till you are starting from scratch but work backwards with the boxes unplugged each time
