  1. I guess your question is basically if you can play Supercarrier on release date in the stable version? I am quite sure that this will not be possible even if 2.5.6 goes into stable befor the official release date. Most or all modules had some time in the Open Beta only. At least for a few weeks.
  2. Well if you zoom in your positional awareness is greatly reduced (at least mine) since the FOV is much lower then. I already have a rather hard time to manage everything during an approach. Zooming is an additional reach for my rotary on the throttle (with my left arm which is actually needed to remain on the throttle) while i try to maintain thrust, glide path and so on. As said I think some overlay display would solve all those problems. On a PC flight Sim not everybody has the same equipment or the same possibilities so some "hacks" are necessary to improve the audiences experience. Otherwi
  3. I agree with the OP, its also very hard to see for me as well. Sorry guys, if you can see it you may have better eyes, a better setup or whatever. Why are you argueing his opinion? What speaks agains some "popping up overlay window" where you can see the zoomed in IFLOS. Disable it if you dont want or need it...
  4. Is it just me or is there no keybinding for the HMD knob, yet?
  5. But is the Throttle able to "provide" more than 64 DX buttons? If I interprete the Software correctly it can "only" send 64 different DX buttons, but not more?
  6. So does it mean I can map more than 64 DX buttons actually in game? That would be great! :joystick:
  7. You can indeed use the "rotary mode switch" and expose the button presses to DCS, but it needs config from the VIRPIL software. As a default the Throttle has 49 DX buttons and you could set the 5 positions as buttons 50 - 54 for example. All will be bindable in DCS. You could even map pos 1 - 3 as shift states and map poss 4 - 5 as two separate buttons. One remark to the shift states: As far as I have experienced it you can "only" simulate a total of 64 DX buttons with this throttle. Having 49 DX buttons natively you can not have 5 x 49 DX buttons. You can map "a few functions" to shift
  8. Also Virpil T-50 Base + Warthog grip and the new Virpil Throttle
  9. Thanks Gizzy, I know that :) Its still kind of a pain though (while I must admit after initial tinkering you probably wont change that very often) I simply saved my throttle profile and reload it for the current ID, which is an acceptable workaround and I dont have to do file renaming. Not sure how it behaves for other games though. I think in Elite Dangerous it "survived" the ID change. Maybe it detects the Throttle by the USB Name (VPC-Throttle) and not (additionally) the id and therefor keeps the settings. And thank you mdee! Looking forward to see the pics :)
  10. Just playing around with the software and am pretty impressed with the possibilities. :thumbup: Still trying to understand some stuff, but it gets better. Only issue I have is that it seems to get a new USB ID whenever I save my changes to the Throttle. So technically it is a new device if I understand it correctly. I added a button press when moving the throttle levers a little forward to be able to go from OFF to IDLE in the F-18. I added logical button 50 and 51 for it and then lost my bindings for the throttle in DCS because it seemed to get a new USB id. (Partly I can understand this
  11. @Lenux It means that the T2 and T3 buttons which are two position switches will trigger the same button press when switched. Example: the T2 two pos switch will trigger DX button 32 when switched up AND down, but only for one press and not indefinitly. (like on the Warthog Throttle) it simulates a simple button press of the same button every switch up AND down. This is probably more useful for many games, but I agree you have to get used to it. Sometime it may be useful, sometimes not... I also hope that the behavior can be adjusted with Virpils software. Long story short: Switch it up
  12. I just received my Throttle! :) I ordered April 20th, got a shipping notice last Saturday. According to tracking the package was actually handed over to DPD on Monday and arrived in Germany today (not bad!). Ok now I have a couple of questions and remarks. Not sure how many people could assist, but I guess people will have the same issues so it might be helpful to others as well. 1. How to adjust the detents? Currently, no detents seem to be set. I know (or at least I think I know) that those screws below the throttle (not the holding screws, but those small silver ones) are used to adj
  13. Well the original date was April 20th... (correction: that was the preorder start if I remember correctly) So 3+ month delay is not wrong... However, I am also not too excited about Virpils communication, but I see it being very close now. Its still a rather new company which has to iron certain things out so I will stick with them. (having no real other choice... and being very happy with the quality of the actual product, so the "secondary stuff" - like communication - does not matter too much to me - given the fact its a niche product manufacturer) I'm hopefully enjoying my joystick + thro
  14. Well I think its ok to offer "just one" goodie for the overall delay. I'm fine with that... What annoys me a little is the constant delays. First delay was like 2 weeks, then a rather long delay of a whole month which is still acceptable, but they promised that July 9th will be the last delay and now they are telling us that shipment will start next week (not sure about you, but isnt that another delay?) and not this week... And that "only" for the WarBRD guys. The Throttle preorders are scheduled after that... Now I wonder what does "after" mean? I would hope that all WarBRD preorders are shi
  15. I would also like to mention the price point with the summer sale at the moment... During the sale the Mirage is 50% off while the Hornet has its normal price point. So price might also be a point here. F18 is quite easy to fly and even if its in early access it will give you many opportunities at least later on. If price is an issue I'd recommend the Mirage and get the F18 later (maybe on a sale?) Otherwise if money is no issue I would recommend the F18 since you will get a lot for your money over time.
