TM Warthog HOTAS question


Recommended Posts

My Brother uses the TMWH HOTAS, mapped to DCS defaults. I have been training him on the A-10CII, and he seems to have the hardest time with his DMS hat presses.

 

He swears up and down that he is pressing DMS left (to turn HMCS off/on), or DMS right to cycle through profiles, but he mostly gets DMS up or down.

 

Are the THWH hats switches 4 or 8 way? If so, is the a way to configure them to be 4 way only?

its a 4 way HAT switch, to turn on/ff HMCS it is a long press left, the only 8 way is the POV switch (H1)

I kinda figured it was... to be fair, he does have rather fat thumbs  🙂

Seems his issue is, it sounds like the switch/button itself may not be installed correctly.

 

Says instead of getting responses at 12/3/6/9 o'clock, they are closer to 2/5/8/11

 

pressing 3 or 9 left/right ... nothing

Go to controls and a10cII and check if the joy input shows up

They do. Just not in the expected area of the button when pressed.

Red points are the area's to be pressed. So 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock. Otherwise you press 2 buttons at the same time. Check the event tester.
