Interactive Kneeboard Extension

It is a bug that came with the 2.7 update.  Vaicom is aware of it and will fix it once ED has patched several other issues with 2.7.  I really miss this feature as well.  We just have to be patient.

As a temporary work around, I have been using the "Notes" page on the kneeboard with dictation.  For instance in a case III landing:

1) Bring up kneeboard

2) Say "show notes"

3) Say "start dictate"

4) With kneeboard still up I call the CV with "inbound"

5) As the CV responds the kneeboard page will switch to the ATC page

6) Say "show notes"  to bring up notes page then dictate radial heading, altimeter setting, DME range, assigned angels, and time.

7) Say "end dictate"

 

It is clunky, but does work.

I just tried this, after doing the VAICOM update and a reset LUA code, and also got no CASE III notes in the kneeboard.

FWIW, I've mapped the ATC and notes pages to shifted directions on a joystick hat, and also the tab prev/next options.  Info on doing this is in the VAICOM manual.

is there anyway for the kneeboard to know the time and use a less "luminous" overlay ? at night?

 

Great idea. We definetly need a night friendly kneeboard.

Hi I seem to be having this issue where the kneeboard is very transparent and cannot be used and tried the fix recommended by removing the files in DCS World\Scripts\Aircrafts_Common\Cockpit\VAICOMPRO." but still cannot use the kneeboard. Any suggestions welcome. PS the Viacom transparency slider is set to full.

Have you tried transparency at minimum?

Typically the term transparency means how much can you see through it.  So if it's set to full, then it's as your photo shows "fully see through"

It adds a page to the standard kneeboard with tabs inside that.  Your regular custom pages will be unaffected by it.

I haven’t bought the kneeboard extension yet. So this is built on top of the standard kneeboard utility? I want to add my custom pages. Do I need a custom tab for custom pages?
VAICOM adds sort of one extra page, with different tabs/pages to it.
