Great news, i just purchased this for my ipad is their a way to just utilize the cdu portion and be able to maintain nvidia 3d?

 

What is nvidia 3d? The sim has to run in windowed mode for the CDU/MFCD exports to work, unfortunately.

I think the price is a little on the steep side and the AAP really needs to be working for the CDU to be fully usable without having to buy the UFC as well.

 

I'll be interested when it's as fully featured as the iOS version, with working radios and dials.

Is it possible to export only the cdu screen ? I would like to fit a android phone inside my cdu.

 

Yes. You can enable or disable any of the exports in the display configuration screen within the server. Right click and select or deselect the items until you've got what you're looking for.

Can you give us a tutorial for using correctly this program, please?

 

There's help for setting up the server here: http://bit-shift.com/a10vcserver/index.html#help

 

Once you've done that, all you need to do is change the settings in the app to point to the IP address of your PC.

A Youtube video on how to set this up would be nice...

 

Ask and ye shall receive!

 

 

This video is now linked to on the website instead of the long drawn out text instruction because, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Thanks for the video, but I hope my next question doesn't sound dumb. When you dragged them MFCD to the top left and right of your screen in that video is that where they stay? How does that make it display on a android screen just putting them in the corners of your monitor screen like that?

That is where they stay. They need to be exported to a display attached to your computer in order for the server to grab them and send them to the device.

 

You can check out FAQ entry #1 here http://bit-shift.com/a10vcserver/index.html#faq for some alternative methods of exporting them that aren't supported but seem to work fine for most people as long as you're not running Windows 8.

Also guys there is a long thread on the iPad version of this app. I highly recommend it!

 

That thread covers any and all questions you can possibly have. For instance I export my CDU to a "virtual" monitor and it "renders" on my iPad iControl app.

 

Works very well, even the MFCDs.

I wanted to try this app but I get this error message

 

You need the Google Play services on your device in order to use in-app billing. You also need to be signed in to Google Play with the account you want to use for purchasing on the device as well.

Of course. I did both that two things. How else could I download the application? That is a given. I thought this shouldn't mention. :huh:

So you cannot take the displays of your main monitor even after exporting them to another monitor? Also, Can this be used in online play?

 

Why on earth don't ED do somthing like FSX where it allows you to just take a control panel and drag it to another monitor?

Sorry, not sure what you're asking. You can position the displays anywhere on any monitor.

 

I wish ED gave us direct access to the displays so we didn't have to repeat them as well.

I'm not sure then. Could you open a support ticket at http://support.bit-shift.com and I'll see what we can do about figuring out why it's not working for you.

Sorry man, especially since there is the limitation of requiring the outputs to be repeated on your display, definitely not worth the asking price.

 

I already have TM MFD controllers and wanted this for the CDU, but I'll pass.

Unfortunately, that's the only way you'll be able to get it on anything.
