    SRTM-30 Earth DEM test

    on this has there been any "standardized datum" inserted into the beta version of orbiter...only asking this as it would then make insertion of hi res local DEM's up to the individual end users requirements and capabilites, also leaving those with the money and processors to go "global" if...

    New Orbiter Beta Released (r.13, Mar 7, 2015)

    Loving the beta Version, I realise the focus is on stabilising the essentials, but I just couldn't resist and thought it was worth bringing up, I tried running the delta heavies add on, the crafts loaded (where on earth I'm not sure) however the vessel sat on a steep incline (guessing about...

    External MFDs for Orbiter

    RASBERRY PI Start by saying great work Kamaz on the external MFD work you've been doing for the past few years. I got my simpit avionics sorted out with a few MIMO monitors and an old laptop as the MFD controller. Boxed them all up together whilst I started on building the simpit...

    External MFDs for Orbiter

    Thanks, I'm using ORC, I do have the free 2012 version of Microsoft C++ if I can open the form I will see if I can remove the client buttons, plan B would be to drop them from the MFD the stacked function has never worked for me, I assumed its because the main screen resolution on the laptop is...

As you can see in this picture I'm...

    General Question MFD Styles

    Ok thanks, I've had orbiter since 2005 version and have never used the DG, only ever really been into the historic stuff, and yes I was only interested in the case. Long term I wish to Crete my own addon with 2D panels so maybe there is hope I can utilise these screens,for now I will have to...

    General Question MFD Styles

    I have a pretty basic question, I've seen screen shots from different developers using single/multiple MFD's like the one linked below. http://www.orbiter-forum.com/picture.php?albumid=848&pictureid=9052 are these craft specific? I've mainly used craft without 2D panels so maybe this is...

    External MFDs for Orbiter

    any way of using the ini file to place the MFD's at an exact location (ie off screen) I've got the two Mimos working well but i have to drag each VNC screen to the desired screen after connecting. if I can get it to do this automatically would be great. there will be no keyboard or mouse in my...

    External MFDs for Orbiter

    Thanks for clearing the ini file info, hadn't opened it, my programming skills to date have amounted to the Visual Studio Tutorial and C+ tutorials recently purchased unopened on my book shelf. By cosmetic I was wondering how difficult for a newbie as myself to add raster/bit maps around the mfd...

    Cockpit panels made of touchscreens

    So far I've used NETMFD and VNCMFD successfully with a MIMO screen (1of the 2 I plan to use in my SIMPIT) although androids would be cheaper I decided to keep with the same OS on both client and server. Currently trying to pretty up the displays :)

    External MFDs for Orbiter

    I've just received my two MIMO touch screens,tried one quickly works fine, however the screen is 480 x 800 and my VNCMFD windows are slightly larger, could you point me in the direction to adjust the panel layout, I'd like to strip off the SEL/MNU/EXIT BUTTONS and TOP Window bar leaving just the...

    External MFDs for Orbiter

    sorry my bad, which is why Im not trying to write code...yet, remembered I had to modify something, and yes my setup will between 2 pc's. I have some HP110 mini laptops that I plan to use with the VNCMFD and will remove most of the parts so Im just left with a mother board, HDD and USB ports...

    External MFDs for Orbiter

    alternative to VNCMFD Downloaded and will give it a trial, will let you know. so far Im happy with VNCMFD though I does require replacement of a core module which may cause some issues later on with addons (I haven't had this happen as yet) I did earlier try WebMFD as I was hoping the xml...

    External MFDs for Orbiter

    I've been wringing out my VNCMFD version of orbiter 2010, having a great time with it over Xmas. I've got a pair of cougar coming on order but also thinking a simple touch screen would be easier to implement. Did you ever try the USB MIMO displays?
