Can someone please explain or point me to where I can figure out how to use the 5 mode select switch on my Virpil throttle.

As of now all it does is change led colors. Seems like there has to be more.

Thanks

in all honestly it is not much use thru the VPC config software, I used Joystick grrmlin to enhance the functionality of this selector, tho you have to create a new profile (no mode) one, see the tutorials in my signature for more info

When your setting up the stick you can set it so it acts as a 5 way switch or so it changes the function of all the lower buttons on the throttle. So when it's in setting one and the lights are one colour all the buttons will have a different ID too setting 2 etc

Thanks guys. I actually did find an unofficial written “manual” that sheds some great light on functionality.

I would appreciate any kind of manual official or not, as well!

So mode switch has "---, ON, OFF, RTR, TGL, EXT" settings so apart from ON and OFF it isn't exactly clear what ToGgLe(?), ReTheRant(?), EXTension/EXTernal(?) would do.

What does Button Matrix settings do?

What are the parameters off for ALPS decoding do?

How do I setup a virtual detent, without watching a 20 minute YouTube video?

Ok, so any idea what "---, ON, OFF, RTR, TGL, EXT" do with the mode select switch?

I found that using Joystick Gremlin in conjunction gave me the most flexibility. Plus, being able to map to keyboard presses means I don't have to map every single DCS module since they share many common keyboard combinations.

 

And for other games which exceed 32 buttons, then Joystick Gremlin is required:
