VKG MCG Ultimate Center Hat problems


Recommended Posts

Anyone having trouble getting consistent operation of the Center Hat?  Axes don't work well in Ministick and only goes into 4W hat on restart.

 

Could be software related but the button response is intermittent.  I have tried all of the stick modules with the same results.  Just received the stick last week.  I have tried v2_2, v2_2_5, and others.

I'm not having any problem with the top center hat.

 

I substituted the analog ministick for the four way hat with push and it's working fine

 

Both firmware versions I know of are at v2_02_5 and you selet the firmware for either twist or non twist

 

What is the exact problem you are having? Is it failing to register a button? That could be software related you can use the VKB_Dev_Config program to tailor the buttons to what you need

 

VKB has a nice video tutorial on how to

I've attached the firmware files, I'm running a non twist stick so using that version, I also calibrated the stick and base after uploading the firmware to be sure all was Ok

 

Perhaps you could try them

Can you clarify what exactly you mean by " I have tried all of the stick modules with the same results."?

That top middle hat that comes installed on the Ultimate can be either a POV hat or two relative axis. Depending on how long you press in on the Hat button. Might you be accidently switching it from one to the other?

I have tried each of the supplied hats/ministicks in the ultimate kit.  Modules work in the Gate slot but not the center top slot.  For example, in discrete button button contacts on the test screen flicker on and off.  Pressing sometimes registers on the correct button and other times shows up as two contacts even once the stick is centered.  As a ministick there is fast movement on the axes test screen in one direction and slow in the other.  At times the movement is only in one direction.  The MCU they are using for analog-to-digital conversion and communication for the hats probably has an incorrect resistor value on the hat inputs to the MCU or an SMD is off the pad.  

 

I will fill out a support ticket.  I just don't want to loose my stick for a week.  Don't let my troubles deter anyone from buying one.  It is really fantastic.

 

Thanks for the help.  I was curious if anyone else had a problem.

Let us know how you get on

 

Sorry to hear that's happened, I feel your pain I hate when something like this happens

 

I did have problems with a Mamba a loooong time back and VKB were very responsive

 

Fingers' crossed for you

Update me how it goes. I'm sorry this happened to you, and hope it is the last problem with Ultie, ever.
