About This File
Have you ever wanted to easily programs the F-18C, F-16C, or A-10C CMDS system? Are you tired of modifying .lua files by hand, only to have them overwritten every time DCS updates? Have you been waiting too long for ED's DTC functionality? If you said "Yes" to any of these, well do I have the Utility for you! Introducing the DCS CMS Editor by Bailey. A picture is worth a thousand flares, er, words. Now with Hornet, Viper, AND Warthog support!
Hello there! While waiting to ED's implementation of a native DCS DTC for DCS, I have made a Countermeasures System Editor. No, this isn't just an Ovgme .lua file you have to handle. It's a program that will let you edit the CMDS profile with ease. All you do is open the program, select the DCS.exe, select an aircraft, play with some buttons, export, and have fun! It will even save a backup of your exported CMDS .lua just incase DCS decides to update and reset it. Remember, at this moment in time, this program is designed for the DCS F-18C, F-16C, and A-10C only. Interest and demand will determine if other aircraft will be added.
If you give this a try, please read the READMEE. It is hard to miss. Also, I appreciate all feedback. Comments, corrections, suggestions, and even a "thanks" are all welcome. Enjoy!
Thank you to all the folks at the Hoggit Discord for doing some of the testing, general banter, and program naming suggestions ("EDCHITA" was a close second place. You know who you are). Also, thank you to Arctic Fox for the program suggestion.
