How to display the map on the second monitor?


Recommended Posts

This is an image I made in Photoshop.I'd like to have the map displayed on the second monitor.But I don't know how to edit the lua file.Has anyone ever thought or tried that?

My current setup is also a dual monitor.I put the MFCD on the second monitor. :)

maybe look into running lotatc ... this might work for SP but i doubt anything could be done for MP due to cheating.

Thank you for your reply to my question.

My friends around me also warned me about the possibility of cheating in a multiplayer game.

I'm just a beginner at the moment, and multiplayer is not a big draw for me at the moment.

What I am concerned about now is the fun of flying and the beautiful scenery outside.

As I get more and more familiar with DCS in the future, I believe I will ask for a more realistic operating environment. :)

You could take a screenshot when the map is displayed and paste it into Paint on the 2nd monitor? PrtScr : Ctrl+V

I wanted to be able to see where I was flying in real time, not just a screenshot.

I'm now starting to practice closing the ground equipment tags, and I've only kept the aircraft and the missile tags,

I always lose my bearings when I fly over the enemy and circle back.

Although I try to remember the relative relationships among the landscape, rivers and roads, I often fail.

I hope the F10 map feature will help me overcome this problem.

Just like the MFCD can be displayed on the second monitor.

are you familiar w/ the kneeboard?

I have used kneeboard. But I am not familiar with it

He needs me to mark my current position all the time, which is not known by watching it instantly. Moreover, I need to manually mark him all the time

If showing a map on a second monitor was not feasible, I had to overcome the problem.

But I hope we can find a way to solve it.

Well, it's not the same as the F10 map with the moving icons, but I think Will was referring to the fact that if you hit Ctrl-K, it will mark your position on the kneeboard. The kneeboard is easy to place on another monitor without triggering any integrity-check issues if I'm correct, so you wouldn't get realtime location indication, but you could manually mark your location and heading occasionally, as a compromise.

Thank you very much for your reply and Suggestions. :)

I'll first try to figure out how to get the kneeboard to move to the second monitor.
