Default Firmware Update

Hello everyone,

I thought that I is about time to update the firmware of my VKB Gunfighter MCG Pro.

So I downloaded the newest Vkb config, bootloader and Firmware 1.96F.

I followed the instructions listed here

After Flashing, everything looks normal to me apart that I have and had all the time a solid red stick light while according to the manual it’s supposed to be solid green. But everything shows the correct new firmware and the calibration thereafter is standard as usual and everything works as it should be. After I changed my brake lever axis to a button which these instructions, the stick light starts flashing green but the everything seems to work normal. Any idea what’s wrong?

I was using:
Vkb dev v0.90.28
Njoy32 Firmware v 1.96.C
Firmware MCG Pro v 1.96F
Bootloader v 1.15

I would not update the firmware unless I had a reason. Surely not just because "it's time". If you have things working how you want, leave it alone. I have updated 3-4 times to fix things. Now it's working great and how I want. Always save your old firmware and flash back if necessary.

Make sure you hit the big DEFAULT button following any update. I also had a red light permanently but everything seemed to work fine.

By enabling the DEV option I could see the reason for each LED, and they were all screwed up, so hit default and it reset everything properly and it was all sweet.

Just a suggestion.

Yes, hitting DEFAULT if very important after every update else you can get a stuck button or two. I used to think Thrustmaster's software is hard to use, but the VKB one easily takes the cake.
