F16 export Arguments

Recommended Posts

Hello DCS Community !


I'm the author of the program F4TS https://f4toserial.com/ wich is as program allow people to export data form Falcon BMS for their own cockpit.


I'm trying to make the program compatible with DCS World using Export.lua.


I recently get in F16 module and i'm loocking for the list of all arguments of the cockpit  like gauges value, light (on /off), displays value (DED) and 7 segments value (UHF etc..)

I understood that i need to edid the cockpit model using ModelViewer2 to get the list of arguments. 

My problem is that with using the ModelViewer2 :

1) the list can't be fitered and i need to test each argument step by step (more than 500 args...) to find which one is where ! 
2) And when i found a intersting arguments (RPM gauge for instance), (not a push button or toggle switch) i can't get the format of the value : Float ? interger ? min value, Max value ...


Do you know a better way to get theses informations of and get a list of this DCS module arguments ? 


Thank for you help !

Take care of you all guys !

Thank you.

but unfortunatelly this tool doesn't work anymore. 

The Cockpit 3D model format have changed to new one EDM and i already contacted the author. He told me that due to the new format, he stop maintain this tool and he can't help us.

That SAD, create tool

For arguments they are user's implementation, perhaps for FC3 modules they seem to be same, but the are different from a module to an other, perhaps for ED they try to make them same.

For the list i am afraid that you have to do the job manually.

The type of value is Float -1.0 to 1.0, in game and Integer in the 3D max animations -100 to 100.

check the links below :




Have fun and, Good luck
