KA50 v1 KA50 Night SU25T F-15C P-51D MI-8 SU-27 SU-33 UH-1H SA342 MIG-21bis L39ZA F/A-18C beta F-14 KA50 v2 A10C


MIG-21bis v1.0



Several months ago, Slicker55 sended to me a message, showing his interest on learn how to create an helios profile. From that moment, we meet several days on Skype, and i show him how to create a profile using my experience in other profiles. Today i am proud too present you the resoults of that colaboration ! A new MIG-21bis Helios profile ! Slicker55 was working hard creating the code for the instruments inputs and the initial art. After that i remade all the art and changed the code to use the A10C interface in Helios, instead of the FC interface. With that change, we dont need to prepare different versions for differents countries, we dont need the default.lua to define all the keyboard commads, because i redirect directly to DCS from helios, so we dont need to worry abous LN changes in the future. And of course, for the final user, (you), is a more easy installation ! So here you got a fully input/output Mig21 profile.

Hope you like it !

For this profile i exported all the instruments, lamps, selectors, switches and levers in the cockpit.
Of course i added the navigation panel from others profiles, so you can check airport charts, tactical maps, ndbs, etc

- Profile files:
MIG-21bis_v1.0.hpf .....................16:10 monitor resolutions
MIG-21bis_v1.0b.hpf .....................16:9 monitor resolutions



- Export.lua:

Important notice !!
Included in the Scripts folder, you can find the export.lua, DCS 1.5.5 compatible, ready to export data A10C, KA50, FC3, F-15C, P-51D, UH-1H, A10C radio fix, MI-8 v1.5, SA342 and MIG21bis profile.
This file is a modified version of the Loophole Updated version from 09/11/2014, ( http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=97222 )

- Monitor aspect resolutions:

I made two different profiles, v1.0 for 16:10 monitors and v1.0b for 16:9 monitors. Use the one better fit width you monitor resolution.

- Thanks:

To John Graham aka Slicker55, he started the profile at the same time he learn a lot about Helios

I made the graphic art, based on screenshots of the simulator, and the textures folder of the game. Some art remains from the Slicker55 original version.

I used the airport charts from http://www.virtual-jabog32.de and the tactical chart TC-1 created by =MAF=Mongoose and the NDBs list created by Lino_Germany.

For the export.lua i used the Loophole version, compatible width KA50, A10c and FC3 as a base for all my implementations.

In the export.lua i include a couple of functions by [FSF]Ian to export the digits of the UV26 for the MI-8

I want to thanks aswell to all the people who help me, in the DCS forum, every time i reached a deadlock, somewhere!

And of course to Gadroc for creating Helios, this great software.

--Install Helios if you don't have it yet. (http://www.gadrocsworkshop.com/helios/latest)
-Copy the profile you need, for your resolution , on the profiles folder, usualy in user/my documents/helios/profiles
-Copy the folder Capt_Zeen on the images folder, usualy in user/my documents/helios/images
-Run the HeliosProfileEditor, load the profile MIG-21bis you want to use, and perform a Reset Monitors from the menu Profile.
-Save the profile
-Dont forget to use the correct export.lua i included in the package,
Copy it in C:\Users\yourusername\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts, but first make a backup copy of your actual export.lua.
-IF you use Tackview, Tarst or another external scripts, copy the corresponding lines from your old export.lua to the new one.


-Open the Helios Control Center, select the profile and start it.


included in the package, there is a folder called "DCS Monitor Configuration" width a complete folders structure you can drop on DCS World instalation folder. This structure prepare the diferents lua scripts to export the MIG21 radar. You will need to change the coordinates x and y of every viewport and the width and height sizes of them in the DCS Monitor Configuration\Config\MonitorSetup\2_monitors-MIG21bis.lua Change it before copy to the game folder, and save a copy of this structure, cause DCS world rewrite this files every update! To calculate the correct position of the radar viewport, run Helios and start the profile. Take a screenshot using print screen key on the keyboard, and paste the image in any art program. Paint from Windows works well. Put the cursor over the left-up corner of the empty space and write down the coordinates. Drag a box from that point to the right_down corner, and write down the width and height of the rectangle. Modify the 2_monitors-MIG21bis.lua width your correct numbers. and you can now copy the complete "DCS Monitor Configuration" folder to the DCS game folder, or use a Mods control program like JSGME to do it.


- - Everyting looks correct right now, so no Known issues at the moment


If you use Helios and TARS or TACKVIEW you can have miss workings due to the way Helios works width the export.lua.
To prevent this, just move the lines for Tars or tackview to the very end of the export.lua in C:\Users\yourusername\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts.
