In what can only be described as a serendipitous coincidence, the now released CTS v2.47 includes the P-47 Thunderbolt!

Other changes:
  • A-10C: Fixed NVG button assignments.
  • A-4E: Updated for version 1.4
  • AV-8B: Removed Engine RPM LEDs (Warthog)

Known Issues:
  • This script is now very close to stack limits, which is why I've had to remove deprecated routines. If you receive a full stack error, report it ASAP. Please include the text log.
  • P-47 gun safety switch toggle does not work properly (module side issue). H2U is set to the Gun Arm discrete command for the time being. Closing the switch cover will switch off the gun safety switch.

Updated bindings since 2.46a: P-47, P-51, A-10C, A-4E
Updated SnapViews since 2.46: Boresight (P-47)
Updated Custom Luas since 2.46: none

Note: due to the stack limits, this is likely going to be the last major release for a while. Stay tuned for a CTS 3.0 development update.

Hi,
I'm new to DCS and (so far) flying only M2000 and Spitfire, with the Warthog HOTAS bindings from other sources.


Is it possible to safely use CTS for the A-4C jet only, without interfering with the other bindings for the M2000 and Spitfire that I'm already using ?
Should it be possible, how do you recommend to do this ?


Thanks for your help,
Toan

It is not possible to use TARGET alongside default controller mappings. When you run TARGET, it creates a single virtual controller that encompasses your Thrustmaster controllers (e.g. Warthog stick and throttle). Even if you see both controllers (i.e. the Warthog and the TM virtual controller), this is a bug with the Microsoft Windows store and you shouldn't rely on this functionality. Bottom line: use one or the other in the same game.

Give the Mirage profile a look; it got a lot of love recently!

OK, thanks a lot.
I'll try the CTS Mirage 2000 profile.
Very impressive job you've done with CTS, indeed.

Hi Home Fries,
Finally I decided to use CTS on different sims from DCS. At last.
I started with IL-2 BOS. Took me some time to made all changes in the config, and adapt myself to use the keys different from the ones I´ve been using for 20 years. Luckily there is a "uniformity" between the keys usedby CTS profiles in DCS and lots of the keys used for CTS BOS, so it was easier for me to remember the keys and commands.

BUT, also noticed there are lots of keys missing and the last update in the CTS profile was made for the 4.006 version. Now, the oficial version is 4.007.
Besides the new zoom options we have now with 4.007 update, if I´m not mistaken, all those in the attached image are missing, and they are very necesary cause they are critical for engine control.

Is ther any ETA for new CTS profile for IL-2 BOS? Is there any possibility to include the mentioned keys and the new zoon keystrokes?.

Thanks!

Hi Luke,

Everytime there's an IL-2 update, I compare the new current.map and current.actions files with the versions included in CTS to see if there's any change. If there is no change, I go ahead with what is already there. I didn't see any change in 4.007, but apparently my plan isn't foolproof. EDIT: NVM, I just realized that I was in fact updated to 4.006c and not 4.007.

I thought the listed keystrokes were already mapped, but I will double check. As for additional functionality, I won't be able to do that right now. As things stand with CTS, I'm right at the stack limit that TARGET can handle. If I add one line, I need to delete another. My plan is to separate IL-2 and Elite from the DCS profile, then make any updates. I don't have a timeline on this, except I hope to have something by the end of August.

I just confirmed that the engine management is there, but they did change the files this latest patch. They appear to have gotten rid of contact fuse settings, dive system, gun 5, and VR Zoom as well as added the varied zoom levels.

I'll have to figure something out for the zoom. I'm open to any suggestions.

Thanks Home Fries.
The thing is I can't find, in game, testing button combos, nor looking into the IL2 profile jpg, any of the engine commands shown in my screenshot. A simple example is oil, water or any radiators. Where is the command? Maybe the profile image is not updated?. It says 2.45 version. See image attached.

Also, I noticed that opening IL2GB.ttm I seen mentions of the radiators, like i.e.:

define IL2GB_OilRadiator_Close_P CHAIN(DOWN+USB_RIGHTGUI,D(ModDelay_IL2GB),USB_HYPHEN)
define IL2GB_OilRadiator_Open_P CHAIN(DOWN+USB_RIGHTGUI,D(ModDelay_IL2GB),USB_EQUALSIGN)

But I'm too clumsy to find the correct commands in my Warthog HOTAS. I don't use MFDs, btw.


About the new instant zoom, its just 4-5 different keys for 4-5 different zoom levels. I think only maximum and medium level are usually used, so, what about the "Boat Switch"?. That way you don't need to keep pushing the zoom key. Forward, set maximum zoom. Middle, zoom off, Back, set Medium zoom.
Now Boat Switch is used for autopilot left , right.. Who uses that? :-P
Anyway, the zoom as is now in CTS, with the slider, is much better than using keys.

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure they're on the MFDs.
