I've given up waiting for VKB to respond. It's been weeks....
So, is the current beta firmware with improved folding trigger support good enough to use right now? Or does it have problems that make it not worth bothering with?
Thanks.

What is going on over there at VKB? No new firmware version in ages and no new news on some of their products.

I emailed them because I had placed an order a couple of weeks ago on an in stock item and hadn’t heard anything. I got a response that they had just moved their offices and were just now getting back up to speed.

Yes, inside Cougar grip are the same kind of Shift Register PCB with CD4021B used in Warthog (you can use Cougar grip in Warthog base).

The electronic adapter in VKB kit is for translate the serial protocol coming from Cougar/Warthog grip in "VKB protocol".

Just pay attention in VKB page that are adapter for the various "flavors" of VKB connectors - until now VKB produced 3 joystick bases and 2 grips, but 4 types of connectors.

I remember seeing reports of buttons getting messed up on the MCG grips at times, where some would always appear pressed. No new firmware comment above kind of jogged my memory, as I would assume that would require a firmware update to fix.

Anyone know if this issue ever got resolved?
