MCS Compatibility
« on: February 19, 2022, 06:41:36 PM »
TacView Doesn't seem to record MCS Flights.
This is essentially DCS but a different exe build. The exe itself has a different name. MCS.exe
Is placed in the \MCS\bin\ folder

Is there a quick fix for this? Since it is essentially the same software, I am guessing this is relatively easy.

MCS is the 'Pro' version of DCS. (even other mods and scripts from DCS work, so it really is the same)

Hi,

Sorry I did not see this post sooner. This is very interesting. If you are still into this could you share an MCS log? Like the MCS equivalent of the DCS log found in Saved Games/DCS/Logs/ ?

And I dont seem to get notifications of replies on this forum.

I think fixed it but cant exactly remember how. And I need it again soon.
Iirc I had to add some lines to some or one lua file. Are you able to help on manually installing tacview?

Yes I think I know what you must be referring to. Below are the instructions on how to manually install Tacview. So perhaps it works exactly the same for MCS:

If the automatic installation has failed, you can manually install the exporter yourself by copying the content of C:\Program Files (x86)\Tacview\DCS\ (Mods and Scripts folder) in your %USERPROFILE%\Saved Games\DCS\ folder.

If you have multiple versions of DCS World installed on your system, you may want to copy the exporter in all of your %USERPROFILE%\Saved Games\DCS.*\ folders. If you are using third party scripts with DCS World, *DO NOT* copy C:\Program Files (x86)\Tacview\DCS\Scripts\Export.lua in your DCS World script folder. Just add the following line in your current %USERPROFILE%\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts\Export.lua script:

local Tacviewlfs=require('lfs');dofile(Tacviewlfs.writedir()..'Scripts/TacviewGameExport.lua')
