Hi,

 

When in the controls section, a control is mapped and the category is 'Special for Joystick' does that mean you can not map it to a button on a console?

Usuall, they're alternatives to map a function to a physical 2 or 3 position switch (ie Off/On). For a simple pushbutton, just map it as normal - in the same way you would a key on the keyboard.

The "Special for Joystick" category is generally used to denote a control which is not present in the real airplane, and is implemented in DCS only as an alternative option for people who do not wish to setup their controls exactly like the real jet. 

 

An example would be a speedbrake switch which in the real aircraft is controlled by two buttons: one for extending the brake and another for retracting it. There may then be a "Special for Joystick" control that is a simple single-button toggle for the speedbrake for players who only want to dedicate a single button on their controller to the speedbrake rather than two.
