  1. Can you post what you did? I am in the same boat (cockpit) . I am using 7 seg displays for the numerical output but a full and complete representation of the A10 clock would be a wonderful addition. Several years back, someone built an exact duplicate of the clock but they didn't post how or what they did. It was indeed a masterpiece but he chose to keep it to himself unfortunately.
  2. I have a FULL A10C cockpit built over 8 years. This change that ED has made screws up so many of my panels… no RWR export, no CDU display export, etc. Please fix this.
  3. My CDU export and my sound mod for the A10C RWR causes the integrity check to fail in multiplayer. ED needs to address these issues ASAP.
  4. I am very sad to report that Wayne LeFevre, know to us as MacFevre, a fellow cockpit builder, has passed. He joined us in 2013 around the same time I became a member. We often talked about our builds as they took shape and offered assistance to each other and the rest of the community whenever we had an opportunity. Two years ago Wayne and his lovely wife Kristine paid us a visit here in Nova Scotia. Wayne and I spent several days in my shop talking about cockpit building, programming, electronics and all that we had learned while building our cockpits. He was an incredible person and I am so glad we were able to actually meet in person. Thank you Wayne for all of your contributions to this community. My most sincere condolences to his family. *********************************************************************************************************************** The following is an excerpt from facebook: It is with intense sadness that the family of Wayne D. LeFevre would like to share that he has left this earth and has started a new journey. He left on September 4th, in the presence of his wife, Kristine, with a warm and loving send off by his children. Wayne will be missed by his family and friends but he will no longer be in pain and his 17+ year fight of chronic illness is finally over. Wayne lived a full and happy life. In his younger years he was a competitive figure skater. He met Kristine when they were both in the Air Force. It was only 8 weeks between their first date and their wedding date that they were married. A marriage that lasted 33 wonderful and fun years. Wayne loved to travel, and was an avid reader. He was always there when you needed help with your computer. After the Air Force he went to work for Delta Airlines as a line mechanic. With this job, he and Kristine were able to travel and live in many areas of the country. Eventually, they settled in VT. He gave back to his community in various ways, filming the theatrical productions his children were in and distributing copies for the cast members, capturing the wonderful fairy houses, and taping interesting content for SAPA TV. He was heavily involved in the Boy Scouts, as a leader and mentor. He recently built a A10 Warthog Flight Simulator in his basement, combining modern technology and classic aircraft parts. He is preceded in death by his kind and gentle father Peter Douglas LeFevre, and his loyal canine companions, Kimber and Jorgie. He is survived by his amazing wife Kristine, and his awesome children Alex, Taylor and Kit, his excellent son in law Riley, and the light of his life, his grandson, Avery. His devoted mother Joy, and his loving siblings, Pete, Cynde, Carol and Mimi. At least 2 full soccer teams of nieces and nephews and their children. And last but not least, Susan, you know what you meant to Wayne and the role you played in his life. More information is available from https://www.facebook.com/DavisMemorialChapel/
  5. Well it looks like the change to the new A10C II CMS button has in fact been carried over to the old A10C. Was this an oversight? Will the original functionality be restored to the old A10C... hope so.
  6. It began immediately after the update. I checked the button mapping and nothing changed but when I try changing to another program it just displays Z and then flips to A. I'll check the A10C II manual but the old A10c should not have changed.
  7. I can no longer change counter measures programs using button on stick.
  8. I had the same problem last week with com 4 and com 5. After rebooting the PC, everything connected properly. I have 9 USB connections using the DCS BIOS Hub and this situation has only occurred once.
  9. How many motors do you want to drive? With exception of the EMI on the A10C, I am driving that same stepper motor right from a pro mini. Very smooth and its based off the Arduino library by Guy Carpenter. No driver board is necessary. Each motor takes four GPIO pins but if you only run a couple of motors from a single Nano or Pro Mini, then who cares. If your set on using a driver board, look at the Easy Driver board... http://www.schmalzhaus.com/EasyDriver/Examples/EasyDriverExamples.html
  10. This is what you need to use... #define DCSBIOS_IRQ_SERIAL #include "DcsBios.h" //************** AOA INDEXER ********************** DcsBios::LED aoaIndexerHigh(0x1012, 0x1000, 4); // Red LED on pin 4 DcsBios::LED aoaIndexerNormal(0x1012, 0x2000, 5); //Green LED on pin 5 DcsBios::LED aoaIndexerLow(0x1012, 0x4000, 6); // Red LED on Pin 6 //************** AAR INDEXER ********************** DcsBios::LED airRefuelDisconnect(0x1026, 0x0200, 9); DcsBios::LED airRefuelLatched(0x1026, 0x0100, 8); DcsBios::LED airRefuelReady(0x1012, 0x8000, 7); void setup() { DcsBios::setup(); } void loop() { DcsBios::loop(); } Read the DCS BIOS Guide and the control reference docs from the DCS BIOS download. http://dcs-bios.a10c.de/
  11. It would be great if DCS BIOS and all the sketches that have been written for the original A10C would still work with the new A10C. Obviously new features would have new variable names for those functions. But common functions between versions such as landing gear, battery switch,UFC buttons, etc., should work with DCS BIOS across both A10C versions.
  12. I didn't see any A10C airframes when I was checking out the descriptions and lists of airframes available. Are you planning on adding some?
  13. I had almost the exact same issue with the trigger on my TM Warthog stick. The fix you mentioned was the same as what I did to fix my trigger. I still use that stick but it’s now on the Mongoose base. Love that base! Virpil makes great controls and their customer service is fabulous. BTW, the title of this thread is certainly not warranted.????. It should be edited by the op.
