Is it possible to bind mode and pinkie switches of X52 as buttons on DCS without using the joystick software?

Hi

I have a X52 pro as well.

In order to have a constant behavior of my joystick I always open first the game controller window -> properties  

THEN I start the game (DCS , Elite, FS2020, you name it) with the properties window still opened.

I can set the right pinkie switch as a modifier without a problem, and my mini stick & related buttons are no longer recognized as a mouse, which is perfectly fine by me.

I haven't tried to set the mode wheel as a modifiers though.

I don't mess with the joystick software and not I'm not intending to 

hope this helps.

I can assign mouse related buttons on DCS with no problem, but I can't assign the mini stick as an axis.

Too bad for the ministick, but eventually you have to let it go. I'd rather have assigned on the throttle grip  the extra mouse buttons (hey ! that's 3 of them)  and the up/down wheel any day.

My regular mouse is doing great with cockpit clicking duties. I reckon IRL you have to use one of your hand to access the console switches an dials.  So I'm fine grabbing the mouse and play the piano in my pit ^^
