Glass Cockpit with XSHI Arma 3 Pluginby
This addon allows you to open on a separate monitor (on the same PC for now) XHSI.
This allows you to have your GLASS Instruments on a separate screen while you are flying.
Currently supported data values are:
elevation sea level
windDir (does nothing AFAIK)
Engine Component Damage (to flicker avionics when they are damaged)
Current Waypoint heading and distance.
Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:\Program Files\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
64-Bit - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
After extraction it should look like this:
You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.
You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:
You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.
And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!
When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.
You need to put CBA first in your arma options:
-mod=@CBA_A3;@MFDAfter all that is set up go to your @MFD folder and run the XHSI.jar file and open ARMA.
Future Values are:
landing gear position
Right now my rough goal is to get a working Glass ADI once that is done I wanna focus on optimizations specifically network ones. After that is done I wanna make a custom XHSI panel.
