Go to solution Solved by Smashy,

Recommended Posts

Hi, I use the cubesim MFD’s and have had to change the .lua file because of issues with where DCS was projecting. My main monitor is 3840 wide and the screens 600, so my resolution in DCS is 4440 wide. In windows, the displays are arranged to the right hand side of my main monitor. 
Everything works great for the screens, except my kneeboard is displayed half off the main monitor.

Where can I edit the position it display to please?

System specs: Scan 3XS i9 9900K @5ghz, 32GB Corsair veng DDR4 2666, EVGA GTX 2080ti Win 10. Reverb G2 , 50 inch 4K Phillips monitor. Real simulator FSSB R3 with F-16 SGRH grip and warthog with RS F-18 grip, plus Cubesim TM MFD's, Tir5. Winwing F-18 throttle, Tek creations UFC, panels. Cougar throttle & TUSBA, plus ICP for the Viper. MFG crosswind rudders. Jet seat and butt kicker..

VR Settings: 90% (90 & 100 ), motion re projection locked 45 FPS, MSAA x2, shadows off, water med, terrain low, draw distance med, no aniso. DCS PD =1.    15ms GPU frame time & super smooth....looks great too.

Sorry I don't know. But until somebody comes with a solution, just drag/resize it to your needs in the meantime.

HaHa, yes, I did try this, but seem unable to drag the thing? I can extend the edge or the top I can see but am unable to click and drag the bugger..... not sure why....

You can edit the following file to set the initial position of the kneeboard to your liking:

 

Scripts/Aircrafts/_Common/Cockpit/ViewportHandling.lua

 

Look for the following line and modify accordingly:

 

local x0 = 0

 

From experimenting, the value in the variable represents the offset in pixels from the right edge of your monitor(s).  For example, my second monitor has a resolution of 1920x1080 so I changed this value to:

 

local x0 = 1920

 

That pushes the kneeboard 1920 pixels to the left and puts it on the left edge of my first monitor.
