The links at the very top of the original post are for the profile. Higher quality JPGs are included in the download, and the diagrams are also in the User Manual.

Hi Zeke,

I'm assuming you are using the FC3 profile in my script when you attempt this; if this assumption is incorrect, please let me know which aircraft profile you are having trouble with.

Now this is a lengthy, but necessary description. Please bear with me.

Because the FC3 profile uses the same profile for a diverse amount of aircraft (and diverse keystrokes with no clickable cockpit functions), I had to shoehorn everything into the profile using the dogfight switch (U/M/D), TEMPO commands, and even then with the new F-15C I had to add functionality to the stick for nosewheel steering. The only way to do it without sacrificing functionality is to make it dependent on the profile's "Gear State", or whether the profile thinks that the gear is extended or retracted. Note: I refer to "Gear State" as the state of the gear in the profile itself (as opposed to just "Gear" for the landing gear position in-game).

Your gear state can be seen with the second (right) LED on the Left MFD. If the LED is lit, the Gear State is down (extended), if the LED is off, the Gear Gtate is up (retracted). You change the gear state can be cycled by holding S3+H3U Long or S3+H3D Long (for gear up or gear down respectively). If your profile is out of sync with your actual gear (i.e. you give the command to raise the gear while the plane is on the ground, so the gear in the game is still extended while your profile thinks the gear is up), you can either to the other gear command (i.e. gear down in this case) or hold S3+T6 long to toggle the Gear State without sending the command to DCS. Takeaway: make sure you use the HOTAS commands to cycle your gear (don't use "g" on the keyboard) so that the profile is in sync with the game.

The other part to make it work is that the dogfight must be in the middle position to cycle the gear, as well as do most "normal" operations. When the dogfight switch is in the middle position and Gear State up, S1 short will cycle weapons and S1 long will enable midair refueling. With Gear State up and the dogfight switch in up or down positions (one of the weapons modes), S1 will cycle weapons without regard to TEMPO. With Gear State down, holding S1 will enable nosewheel steering on the F-15C regardless of dogfight switch position.

Bottom Line: make sure your Gear State is up in order to cycle weapons with S1.


Hope this helps.

Hello,

I tried your 124 vesrion but i'm having a problem.

I followed the instructions and the final step was to run the DCSworld.tmc script while loading kb and joystick profiles after having defined the modifications.
However despite having the DCSwold.tmc running i get red color on commands with modifiers 30/31.

Any idea?

PS.: on a side note while DCSworld.tmc compiles just fine, the other ones return "Runtime Error: Symbol not found: main".

You may need to add the modifiers manually for the red lines to go out. Then after that, the red lines should be an indicator that the profile is not loaded.

As for the "issue" about running the other files, that's just how TARGET works. It looks for the routine called "main". All other files and routines are subroutines called by main. You can compile them individually, but can only run the master file.
