Default HOTAS Cougar CMS switch non functioning

Hi gents,


Installed Rudel's cougar profile for the F-16 and everything works as advertised besides de CMS switch.Whatever i do,it doesn't do anything.I checked in the controls menu but get no response while pushing that button.
The strange thing however is when i use a combo with that switch,it reacts.
For example:CMS up is for countermeasures up(but doesn't work),but pinky+cms up is for kneeboard(and that works).
So the switch still works,only i get no response...
Anyone got any suggestions?


Regards,
Steven

Hello,

I've checked and turns out that it is a bug on my Profile ... you need to define the following commands on your DCS Controls section for the F-16:

Countermeasures_Management_Switch-Aft = {LCTL m}
Countermeasures_Management_Switch-Fwd = {LALT m}
Countermeasures_Management_Switch-Left = {LSHF m}
Countermeasures_Management_Switch-Right = {RCTL m}

This is needed because DCS has not provided default keyboard commands for the CMS (the Cougar behaves like a keyboard)

Please, re-download the Profile and try again: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...files/3306487/

Best regards
