Use LotAtc Configurator

You can use the free tool LotAtc Configurator to edit/customize profile, easier and simpler than manual way!!!

Profile mechanism

At DCS startup, the %userprofile%/Saved Games/DCS/mods/services/lotatc/profiles/ directory is listed by LotAtc server and will be displayed in the DCS > Options > Special > LotAtc 4 DCS options page

Default profiles are provided with LotAtc server but you can add your own profiles to customize LotAtc as you want. It could be usefull for a specific campaign or mission for example.

Select a profile in DCS Special Page only works for DCS Gui, for dedicated server, check on this page

Create my profile

Go into the %userprofile%/Saved Games/DCS/mods/services/lotatc/profiles/ directory. Just copy custom.lua to a new file for example my_profile.lua.

You can edit any profile with no restriction but files will be overwritten on next LotAtc server update, so copy them is a best choice.

Open the new profile with Notepad++ or any other text editor.

Do not use Notepad, it generally break the lua files, prefer Notepad++

Here is the default settings with explanation, adapt as you want:

    return {
    name = "custom",
    short = "Custom",
    locked = true,
    profile_name = "Custom profile",
}

Once done, start DCS, select your profile in the DCS > Options > Special > LotAtc 4 DCS options page
