Anyone else experiencing incorrect input from the MCG buttons after computer restart, requiring one or multiple restarts of the Blackbox to get correct button readouts?

Yep. Its been going on for quite some time. Seems to be random though. Sometimes the stick works fine and sometimes it requires a restart from the VKB software.

Thanks for that, good to know I'm not alone. Any indication of this being an item that is worked on?

Seems like that has been going on for a while, I would have hoped they would get that taken care of quickly.

Yep, I have to restart through the software multiple times to get rid of a bunch of fake keypresses every now and then.

VKB has been really silent for the past month or so... it's strange.

So, I've got all my new controls ordered, and a nagging issue in the back of my mind just popped into the front.

So, I've got the MCG Pro/Gunfighter on the way. My original intent had been to use the 8" extension sold on the VKB site when it becomes available, but realised suddenly that with a truly floor mounted unit... 8" ain't gonna be enough. So, I'm currently looking at either having to build a platform for it to sit on, or figuring out how to extend more than 8".

The longer the stick, obviously, the greater risk of signal degradation. Plus there's the issue of whether the 8" extension was ever intended to have further extensions put to it, and the associated possibility of wiring, etc.

Anybody have any suggestions or recommendations for this situation? My seat has one of those drop in center mounts, which was cool and all, but it's really in the way when you're trying to get in/out the seat and I was hoping to be able to floor mount it so I'd have more freedom of movement.

There's lots of ways to handle this. Some people get desk clamps. I decided to homebrew this up, it's just 90mm pvc tubing bolted to a sheet of mdf, with tube caps on each end. I ended up adding two brackets for a little bit extra support, which I found I needed with a couple springs on each axis. It's very stable, and with your feet on the pedals it's not going anywhere. It's cheap, easy to make and does the job for me.
