CPD Software
« on: November 22, 2022, 02:54:47 PM »
Hey guys, I am planning on building a cpd for my pit and I wanted to know whats the best software to use to generate a cpd image that I can just like drag to a screen. I have heard lightning makes one but I can download the latest one. Is there maybe a better one? If not, how do I get lightnings cpd software. Thanks!

You can find his software here:
https://github.com/lightningviper/lightningstools
It's all open source.

The release file for his CPD software is here:
https://github.com/lightningviper/lightningstools/blob/master/releases/End%20User%20Applications/F16%20Center%20Pedestal%20Display/Version%200.5.8.1/F16CPD_v0_5_8_1__x86.zip

But you can also build it yourself with Visual Studio Community edition.

 You might have to put your coding hat on (if you have one) and try to figure it out. Not sure how many runs this software anymore. This is not buying software so you can't expect the creator  to do support, you probably need to dig into this yourself for some time and learn how the software works. Maybe you can search the forum for other threads on the CPD software.

Here is a couple of things to try.

Did you check the Even Viewer for errors?
Did you check the settings in the app.config file?

I honestly have no clue man, thanks for those downloads, and lightning did create some fabulous software and hardware, but this may not work anymore after trying it on some other PC’s and after talking to some good friends of mine about it.

Too bad you and your friends give up so quickly. I'm sure you can find something else that might work.

I just installed and ran as administrator.

I haven’t given up yet, just was waiting for a response. Anyways, so what order did you open it, do you just run it then open the sim? Because I have heard that is the issue sometimes. Lmao how did you get it to work? I will certainly try the administrator thing but have you done anything else besides that?

No, just installed and ran as administrator. It might take a little while for it to display. I didn't test extensively, just opened it after I ran BMS. Shouldn't matter when you open it. It will detect if BMS is running.
