Hi everybody. Russian-speaking Condor community wants to make small contribution to the cockpit-building activities
There is a program under development which intercepts UDP output of Condor and draws instruments panel on the computer screen (this is free alternative to the Simmeters Soaring Suite.). Instruments panel can be shown either on the second monitor connected to the same computer or on the monitor of another computer through the LAN connection.
Now development is in the beta-testing status. Anyone can join beta-testers team and provide feedback about this program in this thread.
Here is the URL for download (updated, latest version)
Program doesn’t require installation – just unpack archive to some folder and start the program.
This beta version shows only 3 instruments - vario, speed and alt.
It is fully configurable through the ini-file (professional beta-testers will be able to understand how
) features are 3 keyboard shortcuts:
Ctrl-Q – exit program
Ctrl-T – test instruments
Shift-D – show FPS toggle.
“Instruments failure” indicator shows whether UDP stream from Condor accepted by program or not.
Further information will follow including ini-file parameters description, other documentation, URL dedicated to this program on the condorsoaring.ru, etc.
Here are 2 videos from alpha-testing phase:
In that test Condor was running on the desktop computer and instruments panel was shown on the notebook through bluetooth network connection.
