Not yet, as far as I know.

Axis control for the TDC should come in a future patch, I think it was said.

 

You might be able to do it using TARGET (or equivalent) controller software, I have not tried this.

I looked at what controls are on the warthog compared to those in the F18. I've mapped the TDC slew controls to the warthog front hat switch. I use use the warthog slew button as the ATC engage/disengage. Just a case of making fit what is available.

Typically slewing the TDC via an axis is smoother than using buttons.

That plus you can use the TM Warthogs TDC button for the lock so slew and lock can be done by the same finger - just like you do in the Hog

But isnt that just as using the tdc as buttons?

In the same way that flying with a stick is just like using the cursor keys?

Axis for TDC has been added with the DCS 2.5.2.18307 Update 3.

 

I just updated and my Warthog Throttle TDC Up/Dn/Lt/Rt still doesn’t work - the push-button does though. I had already mapped the coolie hat for the TDC and I’m content with that.

Its not the ones under Axis called TDC Slew, but the ones called Throttle Designator Controller (just below), which works here. TDC Slew cant be mapped.

Yep - didn’t see anything relavent.

 

Edit: I see it now - thanks! I wasn't looking too hard I guess.

The Axis TDC control is far more sensitive (which is good!) than on the A-10C module.

I get the TDC to work on my Warthog throttle but it moves the cursor diagonally on the radar screen when I have mapped it to the a axis. If I map it to buttons it moves vertically or horizontally.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks

Turned out to be a calibration issue. After recalibration the throttle it works as intended

Anyone?

 

Look for Throttle Designator Cursor (under axis controls sub tab).  There is something name similarly Throttle Designator Cursor (slew) that isn't able to be bound via axis - but the first one can.  Not sure why they have them both in the axis section.

Hi Ziptie,

 

the 5 button designations (L, R, U, D, Center) for TDC are rather in the "HOTAS" section. In  the Axis section you'll find TDC axis horizontal and vertical, and TDC controlled by mouse. I dunno what the latter is tough...

Thanks, but that option doesn't exist for the F-18 in my controls page.  There is Throttle Designator Controller which doesn't work, and TDC Slew (Mouse) which is grayed out and can't be assigned.

 

In the A-10 it's HOTAS Slew and it works just fine.

Odd.  In F18 GAME or F18 SIM controls settings?

Hoping to be back home tomorrow and will post a screen shot of my controls to see if you can reference it that way.  They are definitely different "names" from the A10C to the FA18C (in terms of what they call the Hotas slew / TDC).

 

 


Cheers,

Yes, F-18 Sim.  Throttle Designator Controller - Horizonatal Axis and Throttle Designator Control - Vertical Axis are supposedly the correct names, but double clicking on the applicable box in the Throttle column and physically moving the mini joystick to assign the axis does not work.  The movement is not recognized and the control is not assigned.

 

You can assign a hat switch up/down/left/right to the TDC Slew function, but that doesn't allow diagonal movement in order to smoothly slew the TDC around.

 

In the A-10 module the mini joystick can be assigned and works perfectly for TGP/Mav/TDC Slew.

 

I thought maybe TDS Slew using a mini joystick hadn't been implemented in the F-18 yet, but previous posts say it has been.

 

Sorry, the link you included just takes me to a blank discord page.
