How I extract displays in Falcon BMS 4.35.

Edit: I have recently changed to MFD.exe for MFD extraction.

Edit: Recently remembered you have to do this too.

"You have to run the graphics in windowed mode of course (not BMS's fault, it's a Windows limitation I think) and you can set this option with the configuration tool or just add this line

g_bUseExternalWindows 1

... into Falcon BMS.cfg by yourself."

I am refering to this web page here: https://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/3384641/Re:_BMS:_Multifunction_Display

Edit the RTTClient.ini in Falcon BMS 4.35/Tools/RTTRemote/ There are lots of comments that explain settings. You can use negative numbers for x/y if your display system requires it.

When using the Falcon BMS launcher there is a entry that says RTT "Client". Start that before going for launch.

Older versions have cockpit display extraction on the launcher screen.

I found this out by searching with terms like "cockpit display extraction + SIM NAME" "rtt client/server"

Glue about a 5mm foam to the back of the switches and then minimally silicone the foam to the screen. Use a cheap old monitor, or not.

The hardware is identical for left and right and bottom but the firmware for each is different. There is a leftMFD.ino and a rightMFD.ino and a bottomMFD.ino.

And now there are FalconBMS specific firmwares for left and right.

Mounting Holes, 3.2mm-plated. From corners of screen, 5mm up/down, 7mm left/right. From bottom left vertice up 27mm and left 5mm. From bottom right vertice up 15mm and right 5mm.

Resistors are 100ohm 1/8watt.

Edit: Fixed the mounting hole descriptions. Another Edit: Fixed resistors value.

Have fun skyblasting stuff in Transistor Land and Skies. ron lyttle..
