Default X52 / X52 Pro printable button layout and template



Interested?
It's done and easily editable in Inkscape (freeware vector graphics program). 100% vector so it will be crisp and clear at any resolution. Originally done for A2A Simulations WW2 combat flight simulator - Battle of Britain II Wings of Victory (BoB2 WoV). For those who are not familiar with Inkscape at all I made a tutorial showing only essential skills needed to freely modify joystick button layout SVG drawing provided.

Here you can find the download link and updates

Updated button layout with SST profile (~16 combinations of basic blocks added)

Updated Sept 10th 2010

____________

Improved layout for X52 Pro. Contents - almost identical.
I re-distributed the blocks to minimize the risk that rearrangement will be needed. I also removed some obsolete figures.

Lots of notes included in the svg file. Open, zoom out if needed and read.

Nice setup really. Unfortunately I dont use the SST anymore, I'm too comfortable without it.

What setup? I made it before I got X52 Pro and now when I got it I have nothing to populate it with Maybe I'll try to set some foundations to my profile today. Flight nav / combat / emergency seems like an optimal distribution of commands on the 3 available modes (times 2 if pinkie button pressed).

I'm going to remove the bottom-left drawing of the throttle. There's only two controls there.

My mode1 broke, hence I'm stuck with mode2+3 anyway - but since the SST causes too much hazle, I chose to not use it.
There can be some minor issues with dual input, two keystrokes being emulated at the same time - press & release etc - as well as assigment conflicts with FC2/DCS themselves.
Instead I use this method: Small tip for x52pro users

But my rule for setting up the stick is quite simple - when the s*** hits the fan, I must be able to do whatever I need to do using two hands on the stick only:
- I must be able to attack without using the keyboard
- I must be able to evade / break away / survive without using the keyboard

The rest where time & reaction isnt a matter of life & death, such as NAV, IP, land, maintenance etc - I accept usage of keyboard.

What do you need a blank template for? What is 'blank' anyway? Joystick silhouette with pointers and frames? Some text has to be there otherwise text fields with no text will be gone.

Grab Inkscape and make it happen. What you want (what I think you want) is perfectly within reach with the tutorial I recorded. This tutorial is not about 'learning inkscape'. It presents only what's needed for editing my layout. In your case the required skills are: selecting and layers. Tadaa

Jump to 2:28 to quickly see the layers handling and fast disabling/enabling various layout elements (joystick sihouette, all the pointers etc.).
