  1. You will need to modify the 'init.lua' file located at: ...\Program Files\DCS World (or DCS World OpenBeta\Scripts\Aircrafts\_Common\Cockpit\KNEEBOARD\indicator Add the following code after scan_path(user_path) around line #92. --Adds an additional kneeboard location for 'Maps' at the directory: ...Saved Games\DCS(or DCS.openbeta)\Maps local maps_path = lfs.writedir().."Maps" --Scans our custom made maps directory path and adds its images to the in-game kneeboard scan_path(maps_path) I've attached an init file with the above lines already added; just replace your original with this one. Be aware that any update or repair of DCS will reset the init file, so keep a copy of your modified file for quick replacement. You can add additional 'scan_path' lines to have it scan subfolders within your Maps folder as well to make things a bit more organized: scan_path(maps_path ..'/Syria') scan_path(maps_path ..'/Persian Gulf') scan_path(maps_path ..'/Sinai') Make sure you create a folder named 'Maps' in your DCS saved games folder and create any subfolders to avoid any 'directory not found' errors that might make your in-game kneeboard stop working or load incorrectly. init.lua
  2. Kneeboard Builder Update to Version I have put together a fix for the crashes due to different file structures in newer modules like the AH-64 and Mirage F-1. Unfortunately due to a hosting issue on my end, the auto update feature is no longer working so you can either: 1) Download the new KneeboardBuilder.exe and manually copy it to your Kneeboard Builder folder from here: https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/kneeboardbuilder.appspot.com/o/betas%2FKneeboardBuilder or 2) Redownload the full Kneeboard Builder app from the website at: https://dcskneeboardbuilder.com/download.html I appreciate feedback and bug reports so keep them coming, just be aware that there may be long periods between my responses and bug fixes. When I first made this mod public I had two kids and a job, and now I have five kids and an extremely time consuming career. Real life will take precedence. --Alaskan Grizzly
  3. I'll have to look into those mods, but for now you can disable using Kneeboard Builder for user mods by opening the KneeboardBuilder.exe.config file in a text editor and change the UserMods key value to 'False'.
  4. Have you installed or uninstalled any user mod aircraft lately?
  5. My apologies to everyone for the long absence and lack of updates. When I first began developing Kneeboard Builder I had two kids and a job that still left me with a decent amount of free time. Eight years later, I now have five kids (3 still under 10 years old) and an executive level position that sucks up any remaining spare time and energy. It seems I rarely even get to fly in DCS anymore, but I still plan on supporting this project as much as I can. Currently I likely won’t have the time to fix many of the smaller bugs that you may be experiencing but my goal is to at least keep it running for as many users as possible. The auto-update feature is currently broken due to a web server issue and I hope to have that fixed in the next update. (Not sure when that will be yet) I appreciate your patience and want to thank all of you that stepped in to help the new users with any problems or questions they had. ~AlaskanGrizzly
  6. I haven't tried this in a long while but you can give it a shot. See the readme on where to put the files. https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/1542827/
  7. The 'device_init.lua' is the only DCS file modified when you set a custom profile using Kneeboard Builder and it will be restored after a DCS repair or update. The cause of your problem may appear in the dcs log file in your DCS saved games 'Logs' folder. If you send it to me I can take a look for you too.
  8. If it is still not working after performing a DCS repair and without using a Kneeboard Builder profile then the problem is likely not being caused by Kneeboard Builder. Kneeboard Builer only modifies one .lua file for each aircraft in the DCS install directory only when a profile is applied. That single file is reset after a DCS repair. It may be an issue with the new DCS kneeboard system not liking multi-monitor configurations.
  9. In the Kneeboard Builder go to Options -> Kneeboard Profiles -> Restore Defaults and then run a DCS repair to clear out any remaining old configuration files that may be interfering with the new kneeboard setup. With the new resizable and movable DCS kneeboard system the kneeboard profiles from Kneeboard Builder are no longer necessary to use unless you want the kneeboard to default to a certain size and position.
  10. Running a DCS repair will probably be your best option. Select the repair option that removes all non-native files from the DCS install to make sure you get rid of any old kneeboard related configuration files that are no longer needed after the latest DCS update. I am still looking into how the new kneeboard works and how well it plays with Kneeboard Builder.
  11. Version is now available. -Fixed 'Value cannot be null' crash on startup after update to DCS Open Beta
  12. Yes is it looks like they made some major upgrades to the in-game kneeboard which will likely render a portion of Kneeboard Builder obsolete. I'll have to put out a new update to Kneeboard Builder to compensate for the changes. I haven't had a chance to look at what has changed yet so I don't have a time frame on when you can expect a Kneeboard Builder update.
  13. In the Options -> Preferences page, try setting your saved games path to point directly at your DCS saved games folder like "...\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta"
  14. Version is now available. -Fixed A-10C kneeboard profiles overwriting A-10C_2 kneeboard profiles -Fixed crash when setting kneeboard profile for all aircraft -Standalone FC3 aircraft and FC3 package aircraft now use separate kneeboard profiles (still use same kneeboard image directory though)
