Thanks, Dream. I replied to your PM.

I'll look at the F-18 as well.

EDIT: I'll add the trim issue to the bugtracker to see if any of my VR testers get the same issue.
After my flight today I wanted to confirm this issue is not just with the F-14. The same thing happens in the C-101 which suggests it's an issue with the routine (as you stated).

The nice part about the C-101 is you can see the roll trim gauge moving without any input once you switch seats. Unlike the F-14 this doesn't cause the jet to careen into the ground because both seats have flight control, but it does cause an unsustainable input situation. The C-101 may be an easier module to replicate/debug this in since the actual instrumentation can confirm the issue.

As a reminder, I'm using the "Default Hat function in VR = 1" which I assume is required to duplicate the issue.

Thanks for the amplifying information. I'm head down right now changing the M-2000C and getting 2.42 out the door, but once the dust settles I'll take a closer look at the issue.

Hey there!

I'm back after a couple of years hiatus, this time learning F/A18C after my previous Mirage journey (not ended... but will pick up some time in the future)

I noticed a really minor error in the Warthog PDF: the Engine Crank positions are inverted, so Aft is left engine and Fwd is right engine in the profile.

Should I see additional issues I'll let you know!

Also, in F/A-18C the Dispenser Switch only updates the first time in the AMPCD SnapView. All subsequent changes of the switch are done but the SnapView doesn't update.

Nice catch. I'll update the graphic.

This is a known issue with no solution because the AMPCD DirectEntry SnapView holds the DX31+DX32 modifiers (allowing you to press the AMPCD buttons using your MFD if you only have 2 MFDs), and the countermeasure bypass switch uses the on else off switch logic that tends to break when modifiers are introduced. Best workaround is just to click the switch while using the SnapView and then use the Boat Switch when in a regular view.

EDIT: I've put in an option to disable the DirectEntry modifiers in the next version (for people with more than 2 MFDs).

The graphic has been updated. Just run the updater.

I new to using tm profiles. I haven ’t.a.r.g.e.t. And saved and iirc ran the profile before I plugged in my cougar. Then I started target but it didn’t recognize the hotas or show the profile. Can someone help me get the profile loaded in the cougar so the horas emulates the rl hotas in the f-16?

Since you've been using the Cougar, I'm assuming you're familiar with Foxy and programming the EPROM on the Cougar. TARGET is completely different. You must have the TM controller already plugged in (so TARGET recognizes the device), then you load the profile. TARGET converts your physical controllers into a virtual controller (i.e. different Windows ID called Thrustmaster Combined instead of HOTAS Cougar), and it is this virtual controller that DCS recognizes.

So you need to 1) plug in the controller, 2) launch the TARGET profile, then 3) run DCS to configure everything (i.e. import the diff.luas).

To get my script to emulate the F-16, you must load the F-16 profile from the available profiles (i.e. most of the DCS aircraft). Read the Setup Guide PDF on how to do everything and it will become more clear.
