HI .. I just cant get Cotasa instruments to stay onscreen when Condor 2 finishes loading. I have disabled all transparency settings as the readme explained some Win 10 setups have issues, but Cotasa just closes as soon as The task finishes loading and I see the glider cockpit.
I have tried both WIndowed and Fullscreen emulation but nothing stops Cotasa closing. I cant alt tab to it either, it hasnt lost screen focus and gone in the background, it just closes completely.

Below is my logfile

What is your issue ?
- CoTASA shutting down when Condor starts: run as admin should help, otherwise post your logfile (see below)

- TAS/Ground speed not displayed in the AH:

I have used the "<" key as default, but it was a mistake, that key exists only on French keyboards (AZERTY)

Select another key in the .ini file

Sorry for the incovenience

BTW : please avoid posting long text files in messages, use the Code ( </>) button in the toolbar

In your CoTASA.ini file:
# KEY MAPPINGS
# Input key selection (uppercase, between "", e.g.: "U" or ASCII code : ASC85 or scancode : SCN22)
[...]
#Toggle HUD Speed display (default="<")
Key HUD Speed=V

Replacing V with ASC85 fixed it.
Thank you for all your help.

Until now it was only possible to move CoTASA windows to monitors beside the main one, but not above or below.

Following a user request, this has been made possible.

I have also fixed the issue that could prevent CoTASA from exiting properly.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1v1ZXKE ... sp=sharing

The documentation has not been updated, and there is no installer program yet.

I would recommend to install it as a separate version for the time being (possibly overwriting the previous betas)

If no bug is found, this should become the official V2.3

Comments and suggestions are always welcome
