No, for use one or other grip you need load the specific firmware for you base - Gladiator PRO or Gunfighter, every time that swap grips.

SnowTriger confuse things, if Warthog grip is used in other brand base - is supported by VKB and VPC bases, no Thrustmaster software/firmware/driver is need.

They have adapter for TM WH grip which I have and wish to use. I can change firmware to do this, but changing profile only would be preferable.

Since MCG Pro and TM Warthog grips differ in the number of available buttons, hats, etc. I doubt changing the profile only would be enough.

You theoretically could have the grip communicate with the base directly and inform it of its identity, but that would require additional electronics and firmware written for that purpose, which increases price which defeats the appeal of modular grips. It takes a few seconds to select the required firmware. Hardly a big imposition.

There is at present no other way to do it, nor is that likely to ever change.

I apologize for any confusion I have created.
Obviously, I neglected to "read ALL the words" !
I missed the fact that you said TM WH "grip" and MGC.

My Bad.

In VKB FTP are profiles for KG-12B and TM Warthog grip - for Black Box (Gunfighter), but not for MCG or MCG PRO.

http://ftp.vkb-sim.pro/Profiles/BlackBox/

MCG's have micro controller inside, work as individual "entity" and probable their own firmware.
