Exporting gauges to second screen (viewport creation)

Hello all,

 

I know it has been discussed multiple times, but I haven't found the answer to my issue yet, so I hope one of you can help me or at least point me in the right direction.

 

I wish to export some gauges in several aircraft to my second monitor, for example the airspeed indicator of the Spitfire. I have read several topics on it, mostly older ones (2014 and before), which are mainly discussing the A-10C. For that module, I find it rather easy to do and thus have succesfully exported the MFCD's to my second screen. However, no matter what I try, I can't manage to export any indicators from newer modules, like the Spitfire. Main reason for that I guess is the lack of the folder structure used in the A-10C module, where each gauge has it's own subfolder with a <GAUGENAME>_init.lua, from where you can make a viewport.

 

Is there a way create a viewport for some of the indicators on the Spitfire, or any other relatively new plane, despite lacking the folder structure of the A-10C? If yes, where can I find a how-to guide/instructions? Exporting the whole front dash of a plane to my second monitor is, for me, also a viable option. I'm no pit-builder, I just want to be able to check on de indicators more easily.

 

Thanks in advance for your replies! :thumbup:

Thanks for your reply!

 

Unfortunately I can't get UltraMFCD to export gauges from the Spitfire and L-39C.

 

I did try Helios, but I encounter two problems: I don't know how to properly create my own export profile, and more important, Helios crashes as soon as I use a downloaded profile.

 

Unfortunately I've got really limited time to spend gaming/simming per week (I'm happy if I manage to game for 5 hours) and I really don't want to spend loads of time configuring lots of programs and files. That's also the reason why a quick fix like just exporting the center console to the second screen would work perfectly fine for me.
