Warthog Thrustmaster TARGET programming


Recommended Posts

I'm using the TARGET GUI to program some keys using layers and sub-layer (i/o).

 

I defined an action for H1 Up when the sub-layer button is pressed. It works fine.

 

H1 is part of the main directional button on the joystick.

 

But now the normal H1 Up function (w/o the sub-layer button pressed) - i.e. view down - doesn't work.

 

Does use of layers of sub-layers require I have to re-define every combination even though I'm not redefining the key.

 

i.e. isn't there a way of saying - if not defined in TARGET use the default key action.

To the best of my knowledge, no. Once you run Target, there is no default key action.

Do yourself a favor and take the time to learn the script instead. The GUI is horribly limited and terribly slow. There is a decent help file to get you started and besides the script will give you a much better overview of your programming.

I noticed that for keys that i do not define in TARGET - the pass thru

works fine.

 

For example - not re-defining VIEW LEFT/RIGHT - works fine.

 

It just seems to be a software design issue.

 

If the key combination - even if part of a layer - is not defined - then it

should just act as a pass thru.

 

Thanks for the answers and I will look into the script editor.

 

If I did that - is there a way to start the config file + DCS w/o starting up

the TARGET program and the pressing the FLY-NOW button.

 

Or at least - can I just make it one key press.

Most definitely this.

You will be amazed by what the warthog is capable of with scripting, the GUI doesn't even come close.

Layers, long/short press, chains, sequences and even logic flags...

I did exactly this with no programming/scripting experience just hacking through the manual and help from forum members.

 

Good luck
