  1. Mirrors on or off by default is set in the main DCS settings window, and it's global, effects all aircraft.
  2. My throttle firmware is 23, my stick firmware is 11. I was unaware of the tmc file you speak of, I've never run any programs into my hardware via the target software. Like I said, I don't trust their software, a quirk of mine that exists from all the way back in the TM WCS days, way before USB when joystick ports were used. I've used thrustmaster products since about 1992. My stick, throttle, and TPR pedals are plugged into a powered USB3.0 hub. I'm very happy to help! I love supporting community efforts!
  3. Having received my faceplate, I have to say I really like it. The Hornet logo is a nice touch. The LED backlighting is ON POINT, where the ebay throttle faceplate much of the text did not line up with the lighting. LooseCannon has put attention to detail where it comes to the backlighting. I personally HATE the target software, and wish there was a way to control the lighting via keyboard keybind. TM puts way too much reliability in their unreliable software IMHO. Every time I open that software, do what I need to do (usually adjust backlighting) and exit, my Joystick stops responding, I have to unplug and replug it in for it to be recognized again. My throttle had, for some reason, some very slight alignment issues, some of the holes in the faceplate wouldn't line up, like 1/64" off. LooseCannon fixed that right up with the second version. I guess some slightly expanded tolerances will help with manufacturing variances on TM's part so that one part fits all throttles. Overall, I REALLY like the plate. Having launch bar control on there makes more sense than the INTR WING inhibit, which I never used. I would post photos, but nothing I took photos of looked much different than what LooseCannon posted above. What you see is what you get. The quality is there, the functionality is there, there isn't that much more to show. Overall, I would recommend if you fly the hornet and rely on labels. In order to make DCSWorld recognize the two top switches for ON/OFF programming, you will need to add a couple lines of code to your DEFAULT.LUA in your FA-18 folder... (PATH \~~\~~\~~\DCSWorld\Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Input\FA-18C\joystick) I usually paste this code around the 880 Line Number in the LUA (near ED's code for special switches)... -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -- Special input for 3-pos 2-signals switches on joystick F/A-18 Thrustmaster -------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- { down = SMS_commands.MasterArmSw, up = SMS_commands.MasterArmSw, cockpit_device_id = devices.SMS, value_down = 1.0, value_up = 0.0, name = _('Master Arm Switch (special) - ARM/SAFE'), category = {_('Special For Joystick'), _('Instrument Panel'), _('Master Arm Panel')}}, { down = iCommandPlaneGearUp, up = iCommandPlaneGearDown, cockpit_device_id = devices.GEAR_INTERFACE, name = _('Landing Gear Control Handle (special) - UP/DOWN'), category = {_('Special For Joystick'), _('Left Vertical Panel')}}, You can save this file, because when DCS updates, this code occassionally gets overwritten: default.lua F18 Special Switch Enable
  4. The virpil warbird will take Thrustmaster grips without need for software or modification. However, they're always out of stock or backordered. You can get the TM Warthog Magnetic base on Amazon right now for $159-ish
  5. OH Yeah! I like this one way better than the one I got off ebay.. The lights do NOT work with his at all. And I always wondered why use INTR WING Inhibit on the plate, when Launch Bar makes way more sense. How do I get one sent to San Diego? (Edit: I would like the original design with the details around the flap switch)
  6. It works in Single Player and Any OTHER online server I've tried. In the controls options, It's in the Assist Category, AutoPilot LWin+A, AutoPilot Attitude Hold LALT+LShift+A, AutoPilot Level Flight LCTRL+A, AutoPilot Orbit LALT+A None of these work in your two servers. Pilot Trimmer and Trimmer Reset works, but not the same thing. Basically AutoPilot puts your co-pilot in control of the aircraft, but he won't avoid obstacles
  7. Does the server remove the autopilot features from aircraft? I'm using the huey, and the keybind that I have set up has no effect.
  8. The Search and Rescue server seems to be able to disable Autopilot for the Huey. Pressing the bound button has no effect.
  9. I had no idea! Recently, his son, Robert J Goebel Jr put up a website to preserve his fathers legacy. There are new versions of the book available too (audio, e-book, etc)! https://mustangace11.com/ Really nice work on the skin!
  10. Excellent work on the skins! They look beautiful! Would it be possible to add another 31st Fighter Group? The Flying Dutchman, HL-N, tail number 418500. Flown by someone I once knew, Lt Col Robert Goebel. It will be 10 years since his passing on 2/20. I'd make it myself, if I knew how!
  11. {path}\DCSWorld\Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Input\FA-18C\joystick Edit your Default.LUA file to include these lines: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -- Special input for 3-pos 2-signals switches on joystick F/A-18 Thrustmaster -------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- { down = SMS_commands.MasterArmSw, up = SMS_commands.MasterArmSw, cockpit_device_id = devices.SMS, value_down = 1.0, value_up = 0.0, name = _('Master Arm Switch (special) - ARM/SAFE'), category = {_('Special For Joystick'), _('Instrument Panel'), _('Master Arm Panel')}}, { down = iCommandPlaneGearUp, up = iCommandPlaneGearDown, cockpit_device_id = devices.GEAR_INTERFACE, name = _('Landing Gear Control Handle (special) - UP/DOWN'), category = {_('Special For Joystick'), _('Left Vertical Panel')}}, { down = fuel_commands.IntrWingInhibitSw, up = fuel_commands.IntrWingInhibitSw, cockpit_device_id = devices.FUEL_INTERFACE, value_down = 1.0, value_up = 0.0, name = _('Internal Wing Tank Fuel Control (special) - NORM/INHIBIT'), category = {_('Special For Joystick'), _('Left Console'), _('Exterior Lights Panel')}}, I found the "special" section around line number 899. For some reason, pasting the code screwed up the alignment, I don't know if this will affect outcome, so maybe line them up after you paste them into the LUA file.
  12. I just want to chime in that I received my slew upgrade and pinky switch about a month ago, and I LOVE how they've fixed up the throttle! My pinky switch was broken from day one out of the box, it worked forward and backward, but also had vertical movement, not as much as the horizontal, about half, and it was loose in that movement. The new switch is of much higher quality, and I'm grateful that you've made it easy to attach to the throttle, I really didn't want to solder, even though I could, but that would mean taking it to work to do it. I also appreciate the little tool provided for the switch nut, I now use this at work for tightening switches on consoles. :D The slew upgrade is what a controller in this price category SHOULD have come with by default. I can't for the life of me figure out why it doesn't when a logitech gamepad comes with TWO, and is only $25! The quality of the 3D printed (I'm guessing?) hat is awesome, and can hardly tell it's 3D printed (is it?!)! Thanks so much for putting this much quality into your products, and the price is on point as well. But the value it's put into my controller is beyond what you charged!
  13. Pretty helpful video. Still unable to do this without almost destroying the tanker.. What are your curve settings at? Got a warthog here, and end up bouncing all over the place
  14. When switching VP to use VSPX Processing, it tells you to go to the Editor Tab and click FINISH. Then when you do that, a new dialog box opens up telling you to go to the Edit Profile in VA (Pencil Icon), then when in the profile locate and double-click "AI Communications" command (category Keywords collection) and clear all existing keywords in the "When I Say" field. The problem is I cannot locate a double-clickable "AI Communications" command. I see an AI Communications description. I can see a column labeled "Spoken Command", but not an AI Communications command that contains all the "When I say" commands in that column. Is the dialog giving me outdated information? Did VA change something that caused the VP dialog window information to become inaccurate?
  15. I WISH it was that cheap... I ordered this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/F18-Hornet-Custom-Plates-for-Thrustmaster-Warthog-HOTAS-Throttle/164043139284
  16. I have purchased a set from the Australian maker. It's on it's way. I had to add some lines of code to the "Special for Joystick" section of the FA18_C default.lua with the help of LeCuvier, in order to get the Master Arm Switch, Gear switch, and Interior Wing Fuel Inhibit switch to work on the switches chosen by the guy who laid out the labels. Now just waiting for them to sail across the Pacific..
