mue - Awesome!!!....Welcome!!!! (Another brain to pick.)
I'm curious about this experimental patch. Past assumptions were if we ever figured this out, we would be on our way to two pilots in one cockpit. (Or was it vice versa?) Regardless, I wonder how close this idea comes to advancing that, too?..........Any thoughts Arneh?
Also, does it have the potential to span multiple monitors one day? Is it a wide view screen capture of the lower half, or is it displaying a seperate MFD view? Can it someday port each MFD to it's own monitor? DETAILS, MAN....DETAILS!!! (We're like a pack a rabid dogs here....we need more scraps!)
Fufunka - I agree. MFDs weren't our immediate priority but far be it from me, to look a gift horse in the mouth!
I think both
would suit me nicely.
You're absolutely right, though. Our primary focus still should be on the "Shared memory reader"/UI direction.
GlynD - Yes. Eventually we will need to know how much cash we have to play with and what people are willing to agree on. I think Fufunka's opinions, as well as mine, are pretty well defined. (We've been the most vocal.) So far there is only three or four of us. If that's all there is....so be it. But maybe a degree of patience is in order, to give everyone who doesn't live on these boards time to speak up.
I still want Retro to weigh in, too. While I'm more than willing to run point on this, I'm no programmer! We may need access to someone with more skills than me.
(There are bound to be questions that come up, that will make it seem like I rode the short bus to school.
LOL) I can build
it....I can wire
it.....but I'll be damned if I can code
As far as the most consise thread?.....maybe the Simpit Ideas thread??? There was alot of talk about it there, although that thread is getting encyclopedic in size!
I say we wait for a final head count. (And by that I do not
mean let this idea slip away, either!!!)......Get Retro's input......Then, toss a request out there and see what it's going to cost.....Finally, see if we can scrape up enough dough.
And just so everyone has an idea, where I'm at financially....
I could probably part with at least a couple hundred, to make this happen. (I'll leave the singing to GlynD! "O'er the land of the freee<crack>eeee...."
