Couple of Helios ?

I have been running Helios and Loz's profile for A10C for some time now, and it's a pure joy to fly with!

Now I'm trying to load up with enough coffee to get Helios and BlackShark running too, however I think I read somewhere that the viewport exports for A10 and BS can't co-exist in DCSWorld, and one would have to edit or swap the files everytime when changing aircraft.

Is that so, or is it in fact possible to have World configured for both at the same time?

 

Wich leads me to the next, probably silly question. Is it possible to make a profile for the P51 or does Helios need an update for that to work?

 

As you can tell I haven't really done anything in Helios yet, exept monkey see, monkey do stuff :crazy:

Thanks for chiming in, yeah, I was pretty sure about P51 not being compatible with Helios yet, but thought I'd better ask anyway..

You're right about no WWII stuff, but still I find it pretty fun and very challenging to fly the P51. My landings still look like crap, and dogfight skills are none existant :joystick: Still good fun though, double so if I could make a instrumentpanel for it.

the viewports problem has been sorted it is on this forum, somewhere,

goto the input part of the forum i think it's there.

it was a naming thing if each viewport has its own individual name they don't conflict.

someone put up a new monitor config file which solved it.

The other problem with co-existance of Warthog and BlackShark for Helios is the Exports.lua file, which is different in each case. I've developed a combined Exports.lua that allows both the A-10 and the Ka-50 exports with the one file - I'll start a new thread with a copy of the file, for anyone who needs it.

Im pretty sure it was PeterP that posted the fix for this somewhere. Search his name for posts he has made and you will find it.

Or basiclly you just need to go into the the appropriate KA50 viewport xxx_init.lua file and make sure that the line labled "Try_find_assigned_viewport" does not have entries that conflict with any other xxx_init.lua files.

For example the Shkval_init.lua line 18 might say:

try_find_assigned_viewport("Left_MFCD")

 

The words "Left_MFCD" conflict with the A10c MFCD_init.lua that also says Left_MFCD. The fix for this conflict would be to rename the left_mfcd in the shkval_init.lua to something like "Shkval" like this:

try_find_assigned_viewport("Shkval")

now in your monitor config.lua you would have something like this:

Shkval =
{
    x = 764;
    y = 1152;
    width = 470;
    height = 350;
}

 

Here is my monitor config showing all the exports that I use and their names:

 

 

_ = function(p) return p; end;
name = _('A10BS2 4080x2160');
Description = '4080x2160'

}
}
RIGHT_MFCD =
{
 x = 1430;
 y = 1152;
 width = 420;
 height = 420;

 y = 1152;
 width = 420;
 height = 420;
}
UHF_FREQ_STATUS =

 x = 2590;
 y = 1115;

 width = 340;
 height = 75;
}

}

}

UHF_PRESET_CHANNEL =
{

 width = 30;
 height = 30;
}
Shkval =
{
    x = 764;
    y = 1152;
    width = 470;
    height = 350;
}

    x = 3077;
    y = 170;
    width = 345;
    height = 150;
}
EKRAN =
{
    x = 1367;
    y = 1200;
    width = 100;
    height = 80;
} 
UIMainView = Viewports.Center
