Move weapon hints?

Hi all,

 

I'm running a custom display setup via SoftTH. It's a 1920x1200 monitor in center with a 600x800 LCD on each side (for exporting MFDs in A10 & KA50). The Huey doesn't have MFDs, but in 1.2.4 the "weapon hints"/autopilot overlay displayed on my right side LCD. That left my center monitor clean and dedicated to the cockpit. Now in 1.2.5 the weapon hints/autopilot overlay is displayed (very largely) on my center monitor and is a bit in the way.

 

Can anyone guide me to the LUA that controls the weapon hints/autopilot overlay? I'd like to move it back to my side LCD where it's out of the way.

 

Any insight is appreciated,

-Phox

Found a possible solution in the input/output forums...http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=105321

Hi Cowboy10uk

 

I have a partial solution for you. I was able to find a way to move the WEAPON and AUTOPILOT status around to my preferred spot.

The weapon and autopilot status texts are defined in the following file:

 

...\Program Files\DCS World\Mods\aircrafts\Uh-1H\Cockpit\Scripts\PilotSight\PilotSight_page.lua

 

I just modified the values inside the file so that the texts appear where I want.

The modified file is attached below. And a photo of how it looks on my system (I have 2 monitors: main screen 1920x1200 and small one below that one 1024x768; two Cougar MFD frames are attached with velcro to the bottom corners of the small one and a small keypad is on the top edge).

The Cougar MFD keys next to the text are bound to the autopilot functions.

Trial & error with the numbers may allow you to move the status text around to the proper place on your 4th screen. Note that the x-axis numbers increase to the left.

I hope this helps.

 

Not sure which lines to edit but will plug and play for a bit and followup with the result.
