I plan to improve documentation and maybe publish video regarding setup example (2-3 days)

Just downloaded, set up and tested. Runs fine :). Great work.

Would love to see the HSI on the tablet. Keep on the good work.

 

I have also tried to donate but land on a PayPal page with an error message.

Maybe you can publish a 2nd "donation"-version in the google play store that can be paid (like the App DCS manager)?

Thanx, good to hear that it works

Which Android device do you use ?

 

Don't understand why PayPal isn't working I have try to insert it 2 times, maybe I will make it like you say but PayPal looks fine to me that anyone can send amount as he likes...

Hi,

 

downloaded and tested it. Nice work!

After having some trouble setting it up - missed to turn on my 2nd monitor in Windows and missed to deselect fullscreen in game :music_whistling: - it works quite fine.

 

What I've noticed:

Sometimes there's an input lag of about a second and on my device (Acer Iconia A200) the buttons are, let's say, a bit off of their position - i have to press a bit above of the buttons to get the input...

So I need a second monitor for this? :(

I have the Nexus 7 but not the second monitor :'(

 

 

Same here :(

 

It didnt look like one was needed in the video :(

 

oh well ill just keep doing it the old fashioned way with a single monitor and a squint in my eyes :megalol:

This is a deal breaker to me. I travel a lot, and as such, a second monitor is neigh unfeasible to have all of the time. Export of displays would be a MUCH better route to go. Plus the second monitor poses a performance impact that to some would be unacceptable.

Hi,

 

a quote from colo's requirements:

 

 

  • HW - Android device with Android version > 4.0 with reasonable display size (about 7")
  • HW - separate PC monitor for displaying MFCDs and/or CDU (graphics card with minimum dualhead support)

For me it only works with second monitor on. But maybe i'm too dumb to get it running with only one monitor...

 

 

Perhaps colo can give us the proper informations...

Yeah, but sadly displays in dcs can not be exported. I tried to build a similar app like this a while ago and ran into the same issue.

Hi all

yes you must have at least 2nd monitor - it is used for exporting pictures from MFCDs and CDU

 

Ideal solution will be to access pictures from sensors via shared memory so it will be exported directly without need of another monitor, but I don't have dcs documentation for this and AFAIK currently it is not possible.

 

I was searching also for solution to instal "virtual" monitor to Windows but AFAIK it is not possible.

 

Idea behind this app was that if someone would like to build simple cockpit, he can plug any crap old 2nd monitor and then export 2 MFCDs and CDU to 3 separate Android devices (support for multiple Android devices will be added soon)

 

Please if you use this app, send me which exactly Android device do you have, it will helps me with debug.

 

Thank you

 

Cheers,

Lubos

Well i just tried those and have a second monitor showing on my sys now.

 

So next is to test the app again, ill report back if i get it working.

 

 

Edit:

 

ok the software in the link from sebbomanns' post work and do create a second monitor. The additional monitor works in DCS but alas the DCSpanelsclient crashes on my cheap Versus TouchPad 9. With showing my cpu usage checked i can see that the software initialises and the ip and port number are displayed on the android screen, along with the CDU or MFCD Graphics. Just if i try to use the app it stops working

 

Anyone who has a half decent android device shouldnt have a prob.

 

first download install tightVNC http://www.tightvnc.com/download.php

Then download install this demoForge driver http://www.demoforge.com/dfmirage.htm

 

Right click on desktop and go to Screen resolution then press detect.

 

Hopefully it should detect another monitor that you can force on using vga. You can then extend your desktop onto the new monitor.

 

Thanks to sebbomann for finding this solution and alphatoomega for the origional post.

 

I hope later versions will work on my device as this is a must have app for android owners.

got the file... the kindle says: There is a problem parsing the file....

 

could it be related to the android version?

 

If you have Kindle Fire 1st gen it will definitely not work cause it is based on Android 2.3.3

 

If you have 2nd gen it should work ,but Kindle fire has its own version of Android with differences , it is based on Android 4.0.3

I don't have Kindle Fire so I am not able to test it on this device

LOL :thumbup:
