Is this switch really something ED cares about right now? All I ever do is hold my NWS button for 1 second and I've got my aim9x and that's all I need to either finish the fight or be finished.



But yeah, would be nice if it was working as with many other things that aren't.


Is that an option to long press in the bindings menu? All I can see is nose wheel steering button.

You don’t map it. You just hold the button for longer.

As long as your joystick button is providing a normal "on when button is held, release when button is released" input and not something odd like a pulse or keyboard macro then yes, any joystick will be fine.

Long press just means to press the button for a significant duration. It's the way the system designers have one button perform two tasks based on how long the button is held. There are even situations where "double tapping" does something different still.

Yes, DGFT override should select the priority SRM or I think any valid SRM if one is memorized from a previous instance of DGFT. It should not select AIM-120 if any AIM-9 are available.
