  1. Tried it - works well in 28 OCTOBER version of T.A.R.G.E.T. Report with pics at SimHQ: http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/3133410/Re_Thrustmaster_HOTAS_Warthog_.html#Post3133410
  2. Huh? The Cougar and Warthog stick bases and handles are interchangeable, in both directions. If you think about it, if they are interchangeable in one direction, it has to work in the other direction as well. I just put my Warthog handle on my Cougar base and it fit just fine.
  3. Depends how you program it. Like Panzertard said, you can tell T.A.R.G.E.T. to only pulse the "CTRL+m" command, sending it once. Thrustmaster did a very nice job thinking about the potential problems caused by always-on switches and gave us very nice solutions with T.A.R.G.E.T.
  4. Galwran, I see over at SimHQ that perhaps your throttle hat isn't working properly. For the record, all simple functions programmed in the script editor are held as long as the joystick/throttle button/switch is held. The syntax "PULSE+[macro]" is required to remove the hold. So, to recap: In Foxy, commands are pulsed by default and changed to a hold via a "/H" modifier. In T.A.R.G.E.T. script commands are held by default and changed to a pulse with "PULSE+" syntax. In the T.A.R.G.E.T. GUI commands can be selected to be held or pulsed via a simple dropdown menu.
  5. Um, I said that in this thread, on the first page. rkestler's response had instructions for creating layer programming in T.A.R.G.E.T., and then in-game. Follow the instructions for in-game.
  6. T.A.R.G.E.T.'s J-curve throttle curve shaping alone is much more useful and intuitive for controlling throttle response around the afterburner detent than Foxy is.
  7. What we need is for somebody to create a T.A.R.G.E.T. profile that does exactly what the DCS: A-10C default built-in mapping does, but does it for a combined controller created by T.A.R.G.E.T. That can then get distributed and altered to taste by individuals.
  8. This is an incorrect assumption. In T.A.R.G.E.T. there is an ID for every every button and an ID for every switch position. That means that each position can be mapped when that position is activated. Held or one-time-pulsed commands can be sent when a switch is moved into any position. Just because every switch doesn't send a DirectX button press in every position doesn't mean that every position is not detected by T.A.R.G.E.T.
  9. The important thing to keep in mind here is that Teamspeak 3 allows the assignment of a DirectX controller button for PTT function. Teamspeak 2 does not; it will only accept a keyboard keystroke.
  10. Duh; forgot we were discussing the GUI and not the script editor. I know; my post was for general knowledge purposes.
  11. joker62, If you have CH hardware you can program this sort of thing with Control Manager software.
  12. Quite the contrary, at least as far as I'm concerned (I wrote the SimHQ review). When landing simulated aircraft, proper and precise throttle control in the bottom half of the throttle range is critical for controlling the descent rate. When the Cougar first came out, with its adjustable idle detent, users quickly figured out that it would be beneficial to make the throttle electrical response bottom out when the detent was reached. If this isn't the case, then one often finds that the throttle adjustments required to maintain landing glideslope require repeatedly moving the throttle back a
  13. In the T.A.R.G.ET. script editor, the Line at which the cursor is located is displayed in the lower right corner of the application.
  14. Actually, DCS: A-10C beta has such advanced built-in controller programming options that a HOTAS-shift (i.e. a button held to change layers) can be programmed inside this sim. Nightcargo, You are trying to get DCS: A-10C to do something to a different piece of software - the TrackIR software. Unless there is a TrackIR CENTER command inside DCS: A-10C, you won't have much luck. T.A.R.G.E.T. works, though; if you are having trouble set your keyboard to ENGLISH setting.
  15. My Warthog will go to full positive and negative pitch input without any roll input.
