  1. Do you think you can share your cad file for the front console? I have had so many issues trying that i gave up on it.
  2. A fix that worked for me. So a fix that worked for me: Navigate to C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Saved Games\DCS\Config\options.lua Open the file with administrator privileges in the text editor of your choice (I use Notepad++) Find the line that contains Width (line 83 if you are using notepad ++, this is the with of your screen.) Change what ever number that may be to the screen width of the screen you own. So if your main screen is 1920x1080p, set that number to 1920 Save the file this fixed it for me hope it helps others!
  3. I am not sure if you mean the .lua or the helios profile so i attached both. Helios file is in the google drive link. I threw in the DCS log as well because I changed monitors but i already followed your trouble shooting tips and nothing :/ dont know if this time around i got a new error. So i did make a few changes. I installed table DCS world and uninstalled helios. First thing i did was download your profile and download helios according to your instructions. I followed it to the foot of the letter with the new DCS world install. So helios is fresh as well. I also completely deleted DCS beta to be safe. My new monitor setup is 3840 x 3600 (3840x2560 tv and a 2560x1440 screen under it!) https://drive.google.com/open?id=1jEGP3rTK84EqOlNruwt8faUvTSvNF-W1 UPDATE/EDIT: Ok so i was messing around and before i do anything else, where do i install the export.lua file? I put it in D:\DCS World\Scripts. I did back up the original. Anyway i was looking at DerekM write up for helios with a touch screen monitor (which I got rid of) but he puts the export file under C:\Users\[username]\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts is that were I put mine as well? and leave the original in D:\DCS World\Scripts? Or do I place it in both? I am an idiot if this is the issue lol. UPDATE/EDIT #2: So I tried following DerekM write up and it did not work either. So i placed the export.lua under C:\Users\[username]\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts and deleted it over in D:\DCS World\Scripts but that didnt work. I tried the script only in D:\DCS World\Scripts and deleted from C:\Users\[username]\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts but that didn't work either. Lastly I tried having the same export.lua in both C:\Users\[username]\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts and D:\DCS World\Scripts but that did not work either. I'm out of ideas Capt. the export.lua I tired was the one DerekM generated via helios. I still; have yours and i guess i can copy it to C:\Users\[username]\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts and see if being there helps. but i doubt it. 2A monitors-FA18C 1440p.lua
  4. DCS. Log file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vLvF17o4YnfVgRhdNf8ljo3pk3jXABYk/view?usp=drivesdk Thanks Capt. I already followed those instructions. But still nothing. I attached my DCS log above, do you think you can take a look ay it for me? I don't know how to read it or what exactly i am looking for. Also does Helios evem work with DCS 2.5 beta? Or should i definitely be using the normal one? I wonder if that is an issue.
  5. Please help me Can someone help me? I did the install correctly but the instruments do not work./ The left and right MFD are exported properly so are the IFEI and UFC are also exported properly. The gauges do not work and neither does the jettison select buttons to the left oof the IFEI. am using a touch screen (planar PXL 2230MW) and the screen works well in normal use but when i run helios i cannot use the buttons or knobs on it. It is properly calibrated and i already used the touch screen configuration in the Helios manual. I linked my DCS log maybe someone can help me out? This is my first time trying to set up dual monitors especially with a touch screen support. I already went though captain's trouble shooting and i triple checked the folder locations. No luck. I don't know how to read .lua files if not i would try to make it work. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1vLvF17o4YnfVgRhdNf8ljo3pk3jXABYk thanks in advance!
  6. Looking forward to your build! How are you building the physical cockpit? I am trying to do the same but not sure where to start...
  7. Did you ever go on with this project? I am looking into this as well tbh...
  8. Any info om the CE2? I'm anticipating the release
  9. So do i just ask them to delete my offline mode entry? or what do i do? I Just updated windows (19 May 2018) and before i did, I was playing DCS in offline mode because i had no wifi. The update ws downloaded before i traveled (i play on laptop). Anyway, today (20 May 2018) i tried to play and i get error 409 and i have to reconfirm all my module licenses. When I want to do a single player mission, i start in map mode and cannot enter any cockpit. please help! Like i said i was in offline mode since i had no wifi where i was!
  10. Hey mate, can't seem to find your PCB board for the groovygamergear usb interface. Thats a great idea but unfortunately i suck at designing a PCB board, mostly because i never have lol. Any way you can hook me up? The dropbox link i found was a 404 unfortunately.
  11. Hey question about your cockpit` what would did you use for the sides? the chair and the instrument panel looks like MDF but is the sides also MDF? I'm trying to do the same but don't want to use MDF for everything because the weight and stuff. Just actually want MDF for the chair!
