Exporting F18 RWR


Recommended Posts

Im trying to get the RWR exported to a second monitor. I can get the DDIs, AMPCDs and IFEI to export but the RWR just gives a green blob. Ive installed a mod that alows the IFEI and rwr to be exported.

 

Monitor Lua below

 

{

Center =

{

x = 0;

y = 0;

width = 3840;

height = 2160;

viewDx = 0;

viewDy = 0;

aspect = 1.7777777777;

}

}

 

--IFEI

F18_IFEI =

{

x = 3450;

y = 880;

width = 1150;

height = 430;--

}

 

-- RWR

F18_RWR =

{

x = 5570;

y = 880;

width = 450;

height = 450;

}

 

--Left MFCD

LEFT_MFCD =

{

x = 3840;

y = 0;

width = 830;

height = 830;

}

 

--Right MFCD

RIGHT_MFCD =

{

x = 5570;

y = 0;

width = 830;

height = 830;

}

 

--AMPCD

CENTER_MFCD =

{

x = 4620;

y = 0;

width = 1600;

height = 1600;

}

 

--UFC

--F18_UFC =

--{

-- x = 2910;

-- y = 2213;

-- width = 885;

-- height = 462;

--}

 

--GUI Viewport

Gui =

{

x = 0;

y = 0;

width = 3840;

height = 1850;

}

 

 

UIMainView = Gui

GU_MAIN_VIEWPORT = Viewports.Center

 

Any ideas?

RWR doesn't export well. You have to tweak another .Lua file to adjust the font etc. There is a thread in here somewhere with the required changes. If I find it I'll post it.

 

Barring that, when I get home I'll paste the info from my setup.

 

Found it

same here

RWR Export worked fine for month, but since some weeks now there is only a green blob

Insert these values in the LUA file.

 

D:\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Cockpit\Scripts\TEWS\indicator\RWR_ALR67_init.lua

 

If you do not care about the RWR view in the F-18 cockpit, because it is located in a poorly accessible place.

The RWR view on the additional monitor is more important to you.

I suggest such settings:

 

shaderLineParamsUpdatable = true

shaderLineDefaultThickness = 0.06

shaderLineDefaultFuzziness = 0.03

shaderLineDrawAsWire = false

shaderLineUseSpecularPass = true

I needed this today. Worked perfectly - the blob is gone. You are right... there's no reason to use the cockpit RWR when you have a viewport. In fact, I've been flying my main monitor in HUD-only view lately. With Capt. Zeen's Helios profile I have the 3 DDI's, UFC, IFEI, and RWR right where I need them, and because I have a touchscreen, the controls are clickable.

 

Interestingly, when I switch to HUD-only mode, the viewport text becomes much brighter and a little thicker.

I made these adjustments to that file, to both sets of lines with these codes on them. 

This is now what I see. Def a step in the right direction but without the threat circles pictured in the right MDI, or the symbols, its not a complete rendering of the RWR. 

That am I missing?

I spent a lot of time with the RWR export and I got to the same point as what you show. I found that pretty useless and abandoned the project.

You won't get the lines to show, since the rings are part of an overlay ( i think?). Non of the planes from which i exported the RWR show the rings, as far as i can remember

 

If you do want to have those rings, you might want to look for a program called Helios
