Fun fact for those who have GPUs with a DisplayPort(well, at least V1.2): You can have up to 4 HDMI displays come from a single DP plug because of Multi Stream Transport(MST). This is a standard that was implemented in GTX 6XX and newer from Nvidia and pretty much any AMD GPU that still runs today and has a Display Port.

To make it work all you typically need is an adapter that costs about $60 USD for 2 HDMI outputs and about $170 for a quad HDMI output. Sounds expensive but graphics cards are expensive right now and trying to have multiple in a PC and gaming with multi monitors is a pain in the butt.

Hi All,  After a couple of hours and a bit of learning I found a simple way to set up display extraction For DCS.  The BMS part is also working but that coms later.

How to get this working.

On this.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

1.  Download the latest F16 profile from Capt Zeen   https://mega.nz/file/E9NDQayS#xF_juB1ykhClU-CLIPZ_Ws8HHa-ay1nIEY4Wh2eqQ-k
and install it.
2. Remove al items from the profile you dont want.
What I did is the following.  I found the gauges in the list on the right.  And I removed all other what I didn't use.  Simple  Delete it.

select and delete

and finaly end here.

Now I hide some items in the Gauge which I don't need.  You can delete them too.  Or hide..  Both woirk fine.

You can open and close the sections..

Same for other gauges.

Save the Helios File.
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

Use the save option in Helios Profile editor as many as you need.  and start the Helios control center to see Live your positions.
Adjust it until the Gauges are on the correct positions.

Now we go to DCS.

Good advice to find the correct position of the gauges.
You all use a display extraction tool I guess..   Just start it..  And  Press PRINTSCREEN  on your keyboard.
I use YAME..
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

Open the app “Paint” in Windows and paste the screendump. 
You are now able to identify the position very easy with your mouse. Just remember every Left TOP and Left Bottom position.
Check the Yellow.

  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Use that data and create a NEW LUA file.  and save it in the correct location
C:\Users\name\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Config\MonitorSetup

And Fly.....
 

Contact me for questions..

Knight.

BMS setup will Follow.
