OK AndyB, You wanted Flares, Chaff, and the Upfront Display exported for home cockpits via the commserver. Here's what I've got, now you need to test it.
It exports the number of Flares, number of Chaff, and the four lines of text from the Upfront Display and the three/four lines from the Ekran.
Helo's with Upfront:
Helo's with Ekran:
On the Apache I've just seen a Clock and a Fuel Level on the Upfront Display.
I have no idea where the Ekran is located on Hind and the Hokum, and I've never noticed it display anything on the KA-50 and the Havoc. I've never looked, didn't even know it was there.
I've never used the commserver feature, so you will have to test it and tell me if it works or not. It compiled and ran and my machine didn't crash or glitch or anything on any of the helos. The cohokum_test14.exe includes all of my other upgrades as well, I didn't compile a cut-down version. If something else glitches, go get the rest of it from the MFD_Export thread.
Best of Luck,
