Default lights

hey to all

I just bought the warthog but seems to have problem with lights. Only cockpit lights seem to work, any idea?

Without being patronising...exterior lights are controlled by the HOTAS Throttle pinkie switch...if left central they'll be off...regardless of how you've assigned them in the cockpit...forward or aft turns exterior lights on (default or as selected)
Its so its easy to turn off all exterior lights whne you FENCE in...by putting HOTAS Throttle pinkie switch to centre


(apologies if you already know)

You'll need to bind the HOTAS Throttle pinkie switch to something in controls -it still has the same functionality

If you don't want to bind it to a HOTAS button you can also just use the keyboard command LCtrl+P (Pinky Switch Aft) LShift+P (Pinky Switch Center) and LAlt+P (Pinky Switch Forward).

Are you saying that the clickable switches on the lighting panel don't work?

The switches on the lighting panel do indeed work. That being said, the HOTAS has a switch that acts as a sort of "master control" that you also need to use in order for the lights to work.

In practical terms. You would set the lights the way you want on the panel and use the correct pinky switch position to activate them.

By the default config, the switch is in the center (lights off) position when you get in the plane. Try to bind a keyboard key to HOTAS Pinky Switch Aft and, when on, the switch will be in the "Lights according to Panel" position (p.160 of flight manual) and you'll be able to configure your light settings on the Light Control Panel as-desired.

I had the same issue with the exterior lights. After some comments in another area of the forum I finally unbound my pinky switch to what I had it bound to, and just press the LCTL+P keys on the keyboard and the lights come on. If you do have a HOTAS, then make sure your pinky switch is in the "AFT" (rear) position.
Hope this helps.
