Yes

 

Old thread :

 

 

1:

Go to :

 

DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\aircraft\Mi-24P\Cockpit\Scripts\MapDisplay >>> MapDisplay.ini

Insert at the bottom

try_find_assigned_viewport("MI24PMAP")

2:

D:\DCS World OpenBeta\Config\MonitorSetup

 

MI24PMAP =
{
     x = you  Map Position;
     y = you Map Position ;
     width = your wish size ;
     height = your wish size;

 

 

my is  :


 

MI24PMAP =
{
     x = 20;
     y = 0;
     width = 2560;
     height = 1440;
   }

 

Spoiler

_  = function(p) return p; end;
name = _('2_monitors_A10C 2 MFDS"');

Viewports =

     Center =

          viewDx = 0;
          viewDy = 0;
          aspect = 2.3888888888889;
     }
}

     height = 1000;
   }

MI24TV =
{
     x = 20;
     y = 0;
     width = 2560;
     height = 1440;
   }

     y = 1425;
     width = 1960;
     height = 1555;
}

MIG21RADAR =
{
     x = -20;
     y = 0;
     width = 1960;

}

Shkval =

}

     x = 1250;
     y = 1440;
     width = 400;
     height = 400;
}

EHSI =
{
     x = 1200;
     y = 1940;
     width = 500;
     height = 500;
}

 

 

UIMainView = Viewports.Center
GU_MAIN_VIEWPORT = Viewports.Center

once made and understood, future display exports are made in 1 min.🙂

2_monitors_A10C MFDRL.lua

 

As an example and for orientation Mig21 Radar export

The map doesn't display location when placed on 2nd monitor, which makes it useless.

 

Alexander and his "Mi-24" team have clearly announced that the multimonitor will be supported but later.

It's definitely not a priority, there is a lot more interesting thinks to do before that.
I have nevertheless modified some files in the OB version in order to have the map on a second screen in my simpit. Currently it's not perfect but it gives an overview of the area where you flying...
Fingers crossed that multimonitoring will be part of the next following updates.
The map currently displayed is not in high resolution either, a bit like the image in the Raduga aiming system before. We have seen that this has already been corrected...
We just have to be patient because I am sure that a lot of improvements will come in the following weeks...
