Smile F-16 - Speed Brakes Controller Settings

Good day everyone, I am having trouble setting the F-16's speed brakes - (SB), using the Logitech Extreme 3D PRO buttons, even though there is a setup command just for joysticks. I have followed this command as I do other setups, but it does not show on the command table after I hit enter and Iam unable to get them working. This situation forces me to stop with just the brakes with full flaps on; there must be a better way to stop this airplane? Please advise what I am doing wrong or is this an unfinished bug fix; thanks for your kindness and cooperation.

The F16 is mostly slowed down by aerodynamic braking canopancho. Then a small amount of braking.

Also make sure you are setup correctly for landing and not coming in to fast.

These are the two commands I have set for the speed brakes.

The command in category "Special for joystick" is for use with a 3-position switch like we have on the TM Warthog throttle. If your HOTAS has just pushbuttons I would recommend to use the bindings that David OC shows.
