good evening,
I'm also using a track-ir (version 5} with DCS and DCStoF4 and no worries.
What software do you use with DCS?

I lose my TrackIR in DCS, when using DCStoF4. Any ideas how to solve this?

You lose TIR in DCS without DCStoF4 as well :)
Happens quite often and the only way to solve it when it happens as you're in 3D is to open the option screen and go into controls and hit the button rescan devices

Keep up the great work SharkNoir and thank you so much for the DCStoF4 integration.  I just started implementing it in my pit and so far it's working wonderfully!  Having the option to fly BMS and DCS is amazing now.

I've been living in a cave the last few months because I just read through this thread for the first time today and I'm supper excited to try this out!  Many thanks to smarter people out there with bigger brains than mine that make it possible for us with less knowledge to enjoy the love of sim flying.  Many thanks!!

WOW!!! JUST WOW!!  I installed DCStoF4010B and it executed!!  This is a great.  Thank you SharkNoir for your time in executing a great application for the sim community. 

1. DED works great!
2. Falcon MFD Extractor worked great for my center console and Standby HSI.
3. Landing gear indication/status lights work fine.  I'm using F4ToPokeys for this.
4. Fuel Flow works great!

Issues I had:

1. RWR screen only displayed the rings and center "green" ticks correctly but no aircraft displayed when they should have.  I'm using MFD Extractor V06.3.0

2. I have two panels with switches and they are running off a Pokeys board configured for Falcon BMS.  Do I need to remap these for DCS?  Thank you again.

What I did is the other way around, to maintain backward compatibility with BMS, I reprogrammed DCS to use the same keystroke as my pit.
That way I don't have to reprogram my pit when I jump from one sim to another.
It's more work in the beginning but less hassle in the long run.

I already made a report to Sharknoir about the following but in case some of you users can reproduce these problems, please feel free to confirm

- This is tested with AIC, ghost DED

1. All gauges and lights are OFF in the beginning of the ramp start. The pit is basically dead. The pit comes to life only upon moving the AV PWR UFC switch to UFC, from that moment, all lights, needles and gimmicks comes to normal life.

2. The parking brake mag switch activates fine but it is not deactivated according to the engine RPM (yeah I know it's rather throttle position but that translates to RPM as well and it's easier to explain) Basically the mag switch coil engages but doesn't release.
if you use the DCS 3D pit switch, the parking brake releases as expected.
I suppose DCStoF4 doesn't get the info from the throttle RPM of DCS?

3. Master caution light doesn't work

Apologies in advance to @SharkNoir for minorly hijacking the thread, but I modified the horseshoe diagram of the cockpit layout to be specific to DCS and figured it might be useful for this crowd. The full-size PDF is currently pending approval in the downloads section. http://www.viperpits.org/smf/index.php?action=downloads;sa=downfile&id=247

Good catch! I'll see if any other eagle eyes catch anything else and I'll update it.
