new Cougar MFD setup help requested


Recommended Posts

Hello All! I have a frustrating amount of time trying to edit my LUA files to allow my new Cougar LCDs to display my MFDs for A10C, can anyone point me in some direction? Thanks!

 

_ = function(p) return p; end;

name = _('my practice');

Description = '3 monitors';

Viewports =

{

Center =

{

x = 0;

y = 0;

width = 3440;

height = 1440;

viewDx = 0;

viewDy = 0;

aspect = 2.38;

}

}

 

LEFT_MFCD =

{

x = 0;

y = 840;

width = 500;

height = 500;

}

 

RIGHT_MFCD =

{

x = 800;

y = 840;

width = 500;

height = 500;

}

 

UIMainView = Viewports.Center

LEFT_MFCD = Viewports.LEFT_MFCD

RIGHT_MFCD = Viewports.RIGHT_MFCD

Assuming:

1. Your main monitor is 3440 x 1440 and the Cougar LCD's 500 x 500, and you want to use the full width of the main monitor for DCS World

2. You have positioned the two LCD's to the right and at the bottom in your Windows (or NVIDIA...) multi-monitor setup

Then:

1. LEFT_MFCD should have x = 3440; y = 940

2. RIGHT_MFCD should have x = 3940; y = 940

3. The last line in your file (RIGHT_MFCD = Viewports.RIGHT_MFCD) is superfluous. Delete!

4. Change the description and name to something useful.

5. Save the .lua file in the appropriate folder under Saved Games

6. Launch DCS World, and under Options/System, change Resolution to 4440x1440, hit OK

DCS World will restart and hopefully come back with a display close to what you want. You may have to tweak the x and y values.

You should get rid of the task bars on the LCD's as they eat up valuable y-space. If you can't, you may have to reduce the width and height values for the MFCD's.

I don't have your hardware, so unfortunately I cannot test. Good luck!
