  1. 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'.
  2. Have you installed or uninstalled any user mod aircraft lately?
  3. 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
  4. 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/
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Version is now available. -Fixed 'Value cannot be null' crash on startup after update to DCS Open Beta
  10. 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.
  11. 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"
  12. 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)
  13. Try deleting these two files: "...\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\aircraft\F-16C\Cockpit\Scripts\device_init.lua" "...\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\aircraft\F-16C\Cockpit\Scripts\device_init_original.lua" Then run DCS Repair and retry setting a custom kneeboard profile in Kneeboard Builder. If you continue to run into issues please let me know at s13solutions@gmail.com.
  14. Yes there is an issue with the A-10C profiles overwriting the A-10C_2 profiles. I am working on a fix for it. EDIT: I just put out an update for Kneeboard Builder that should fix this issue.
  15. Terrain specific kneeboards go in the terrain kneeboard folder. The Caucasus kneeboard path would be ...\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\terrains\Caucasus\Kneeboard
  16. It sounds like either your DCS directory or your Saved Games directory is not pointing to the right directories in the preferences page. Try using a 'custom' setup in preferences and set your Saved Games to point directly at '.../Saved Games/DCS.openbeta'
  17. Version Released Version is now available. -Fixed crash on startup due to recent change in C-101 entry.lua
  18. Your imported png files are saved in the main Kneeboard Builder folder in the 'Kneeboard Groups' folder.
  19. A few files changed that are causing the crash with the latest DCS update. I'm working on trying to get a fix put together and hope to push it out within the next day or so. I appreciate your patience. EDIT: It appears to be an issue with the C-101. Until I come up with a permanent fix, for now if you are not flying the C-101 you can rename the 'entry.lua' located at '...\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\aircraft\C-101\entry.lua' (ie entry_old.lua) and Kneeboard Builder should start working for you again. Please let me know if you still have issues.
  20. In the preferences page what do you have set for your saved games directory? Are you using the OpenBeta install directory or the custom directory?
  21. After selecting your F-16 profile in the Kneeboard Builder taskbar icon look at the path '...\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\aircraft\F-16C\Cockpit\Scripts' and open the 'device_init.lua' file in a text editor like Notepad++. At the very bottom of the file the second to last line should read: dofile(lfs.writedir().."Data/Kneeboard Builder Config/Custom Kneeboard Settings/F-16C/declare_kneeboard_device.lua") That path should point to the "declare_kneeboard_device.lua" found in your saved games directory at the path '...Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Data\Kneeboard Builder Config\Custom Kneeboard Settings\F-16C'. If it is not pointing to the correct path or if that file is not there then your cockpit will not render correctly.
  22. Setting kneeboard positions in Kneeboard Builder does pass IC checks. I just tried it after the latest Open Beta update and it still works. If you find otherwise, please let me know.
  23. Version Released Version is now available. -Fixed crash due to improper parsing of A-10A entry.lua -Fixed system tray icon not appearing for some users -Fixed kneeboards being built to incorrect directories
  24. I'll try to put out an official update after work then.
