Kneeboard Pack

This page is dedicated to my Kneeboard Pack. In the past I wrote a news every time I released a new version but having a unique, single, page makes the organization of the content much simpler.
The pack always contains all the pages I put together, feel free to delete any non-relevant to you.

The Latest versions: 3h (download)

    1. 132nd 696th Pressure Table
      Ancient conversion table for mmHg, inHg and millibars I put together when I used to fly the Ka-50 and ATIS did not provide mmHg.

Notes

Installation

Rather than an installation, it is just a matter of copy-pasting in the usual /kneeboard folder.
If you are not familiar with the kneeboard in DCS, more info can be found in this article.

“Night mode”

Most of the pages are available with dark background. I simply inverted the colours, you can use the same technique and change some details if you prefer, starting from the originals having white background.
