Need a favor, please. CM3 throttle.


Recommended Posts

I bought a new CM3 throttle this past winter, and I'm just now getting around to setting things up.  As the old saying goes, you don't know, what you don't know.  As I was creating my first couple of profiles, I realized I didn't save the bone stock baseline profile  that shipped with the throttle.  I've somehow lost "mode 1", and I know that if I don't stop now, and reset things to get all five modes back, I'll wish I had, at some point down the road.  

 

If anyone saved the baseline profile that ships with the CM3, and can post it here, I'd be most appreciative. 🙏

 

Thanks,

 

Tim

hi Tim,

I just bought one, with stock baseline profile, you mean right after calibrating you safe/export that file/settings?

Yes.  I wish I had calibrated, and then saved the profile, but I didn't.  Live and learn I guess.

Thanks, I will make a mental not to do that (it was also mentioned on youtube).

I thought about that, but I keep seeing these YT videos warning against flashing the firmware unless you absolutely have to.  I guess that would be a last resort of sorts.  

 

The weird thing about this is the button numbers of my throttle in the mode section of the configuration software.  All the pictures in the software document on Virpils' website, and all the YouTube videos, show mode one thru five to be buttons 67 thru 71.  On my throttle, with the current firmware, and less than two months old, mode one thru five, are buttons 68 thru 72.  If I change the buttons back to 67 thru 71, I lose mode one.  What happens in the latter is when the mode one switch is on one, mode two is selected in the configuration software.  When the mode switch is on mode two, then mode three is selected in the configuration software, and so on, until you select mode five on the hardware, then just button 72 gets selected.

 

I guess I have a talent for mucking things up.....LOL.

 

Regards,

 

Tim

That's what I said above!  It really is no big deal.  I've done it many, many times!

I flashed the firmware last night.  Everything is back to factory shipped status.  Pretty simple procedure...not sure why so many people warn against doing it. 

 

 

I think it's more that the device ID can change, meaning games won't recognise your bindings and things will get reset. In your case, that doesn't really matter and it was definitely the right option.
