Can we export SU-25T Shkval to another monitor?

As far as I know, that's not possible.

Yes you can I just finished it with the help of PeterP.

I have a 19" 1440x900 and a 17" 1280x1024

I ended setting it up RMFCD (Shkval) shows up on the bottum left of my 17".

 

Here is my .lua:

picture.php?albumid=834&pictureid=5833

 

And here is what it looks like:

picture.php?albumid=834&pictureid=5834

 

I started with the RMFCD (Shkval) taking up the left half of the second screen then tried full screen and it ended up being way to big. Ending up with sizing the RMFCD (Shkval) to the bottom left and I believe it is perfect. When I bring up the map it takes up both screens.

Only one file to edit? No more?

I did that for black shark but I was getting tired of getting the stretched multiplayer screen and the "Briefing" dialog box always appearing in the middle of both screen instead of the main screen. So I just changed everything back to where it was before.

 

Unless there is a way of getting these without affecting how the UI / Dialogs are appearing on the main screen? That would be nice for sure.

Yeap, and don't forget you can create settings for individual aircraft. I have my A-10 settings for both MFD's on my "righty" but for all other planes (including the SU-25T) I simply have a fullscreen SHKVL on my spare 1280x1024 20" monitor...

From what I read in the config files you need to define individual craft by hand.

 

Mine looks like this (For MFD's):

 

 

 

function reconfigure_for_unit(unit_type) --unit type is string with unit name

if unit_type == "A-10C" then

LEFT_MFCD =

{

x = 1920;

y = 0;

width = 400;

height = 400;

}

 

RIGHT_MFCD =

{

x = 1920 + 1280 - 400;

y = 0;

width = 400;

height = 400;

}

 

else

 

LEFT_MFCD =

{

x = 1920;

y = 1024 - 1024;

width = 1280;

height = 1024;

}

RIGHT_MFCD = nil -- remove for others

end

end

 

 

This way I my A-10 MFD's fit within the Thrustmaster MFD's but the SU-25T's MFD is fullscreen...

1. monitor is 24" 1920x1080

2. monitor is 17" 1280x1024

 

 

 

 

_ = function(p) return p; end;

name = _('Camera + RMFCD');

Description = 'Right MFCD on the right and camera on the center'

Viewports =

{

Center =

{

x = 0;

y = 0;

width = 1920;

height = 1190;

viewDx = 0;

viewDy = 0;

aspect = 1920 / 1080;

}

}

 

RIGHT_MFCD =

{

x = 1920;

y = 0;

width = 1280;

height = 1024;

}

 

UIMainView = Viewports.Center

Come on guys, this is not fair/realistic, Shkval HAS to be were it is on your screen, in original Su-25T cockpit, and not bigger as original. -.-

Should the zoom in and out functions be disabled as well, for fairness/realism? Snap views too?

Interesting ... somehow it never came to my mind to use more lua in here. Thank you!

Actually, since I use Helios, it was just easier to give each viewport a unique name. You don't have to use Left_MFD for the Shkval.

I tried to write a lua file that gives me different configuration for the A10C, Ka50 and Su25T, but this file is not recognized in the options menu. I guess that is due to incorrect lua code. I'd be glad if someone could give me an example for the framework of a file that includes sets for two different aircraft.

 

If someone is willing to have a look on my lua file, I already posted it here: http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?p=2024859#post2024859

Great. That helped me out so that I now have my Shkval on an external display. What about the kneeboard. Anyone know how to export this to an external monitor. Since I have two 8" displays, the other one goes unused when flying the SU-25T.
