DCS-ExportScripts F-14B Tomcat .lua script w/Special Stream Deck exports

I used the tools provided by ctytler and created the script for the missing aircraft (F-14, F-16 and JF-17). 
But it was a big job.

Is there a complete F-16.lua and F-14A/B.lua for DCS Export Modules?

6c - Need the HDG and CRS Knob tested. I can spin them, obviously, but I do not see any type of change on HSD (heading change etc..) I need the

F-14 HSD or hud or whatever put in the proper mode (maybe some type of nav or course mode) to see these knobs changing something. Also the BIT

indicator at bottom right, I'm not sure how that works. Does it light up? and if so, I need a replay where it does.

 

To test, load the Instant Action Takeoff Caucasus scenario. 
-Press Backspace

-Press Navigation Steer Command TACAN or MAN
-Move CRS and HDG knobs freely

They work, but I have no clue what the DCS Interface values should be for accurate and sensible adjustments.

Ils fonctionnent, mais je n'ai aucune idée de ce que devraient être les valeurs de l'interface DCS pour des ajustements précis et sensibles.

 

Sorry to deceive but nosaMtrevoC hasn't posted for 7 months. 

Unfortunately, I'm afraid the project has been abandoned.

Ah, I see. I'll scrub thought the thread with a closer eye. By the way, thanks for the updated F-14B.lua. I just saw it and checked it out. Nice work. 

When you say that you used the tools provided, what exactly did you mean by that to get the IDs? I went into model viewer and got the switch numbers by using one of the views (control handle view I believe?) and the animation arguments by pure trial and error.

I tired to make the F-14B profile. 1st the lag with the image change happen i fixed that, but some switches text keeps blinking for example the master arm three way switch I used the rotary dial switch. I’m not sure if it’s happening only at my end.

Hello,
this happens when there are duplicates in the script that do not have the same decimal value or decimal point.

 

In your case, for the master arm cover and master arm switch, delete lines 635 and 636 or modify them as below.

 

[1046]  =  "%1d",   --      WEAP_Master_Arm_Cover 
[1047]  =  "%1d",   --      WEAP_Master_Arm 

 

Sorry, my script is far to be perfect but I didn't have the time or the desire to correct all the defects.

I the F14 if you use the lamps behind the RIO radar mode buttons the cockpit lighting over rides your selection and just turns all the lights on on the stream deck. Has anyone encountered this and found a solution?

Have you figured out a way to display the current radio frequency or channel?

Maybe. Give me a while (hrs/days) to put together a code block to get a rough export.
Personal note: 

Spoiler

local a = ExportScript.Tools.split(list_indication(8), "%c")

return a

Yep. You can even have it recognize channels vs freqs too.

Here is a demo video. https://i.imgur.com/1JEOqjH.mp4

Here is a pic.

Add this code to "ExportScript.ConfigEveryFrameArguments"

[353]  =  "%0.1f",   -- VHF/UHF ARC-182 Freq Mode (UHF GUARD|V/UHF|V/UHF GUARD|PRESET|V/UHF|LOAD?)

 

then add the following to "function ExportScript.ProcessIkarusDCSConfigHighImportance(mainPanelDevice)"
 

	-----------------------------------
	-----Get F14 Radio Frequencies-----
	-----------------------------------
	
	-----UHF-----

	--[[
	1. Get the state of the switch to determine if presets or freqs are being used
	2. Get the channel or freq
	3. Using the above logic, present the Channel or Freq
	4. Preceede channels with "CH ".
	5. Dont preceede freqs with anything.

save, reload DCS, add a "Momentary Button/Display (Text)" form DCS Interface with "Title Text Change on DCS Update Settings" for DCS ID 60000, 60001, 60006, and 60007. That's it! Good luck!

That works perfectly! How do you figure these things out?

Nice! Good to hear!

It wasn't till after the Xth time of watching this video and a few weeks later that the information and how to use it finally "clicked".
I extrapolated the principles to a different module.

 I'll give it a more thorough study.

There's some pretty cool stuff in here and I have my F-14 almost working how I want in the stream deck thanks to everyone.

 

Just wondering if this work should be checked back into the main DCS Export Scripts git and we start managing it there?

@McMicha 's (who I believe to be the main holder of https://github.com/s-d-a/DCS-ExportScripts) last post was about a year and a half ago. The hardest part of making a common place for these additions is the maintenance it would require. Someone, or a group of people, would have to volunteer for such a task.
