Re: Unveiling the VKB TECS Throttle Control System

The DirectInput API is limited to 128 buttons, 8 axes and 4 POV hats. Any more limiting constraint is due to the game itself. Which buttons on the warthog "aren't buttons"? Are you talking about the off states for the toggle switches? If so you can make them report as buttons using TARGET,...

Re: When the Twist adapter releases for EU question

Why on earth would anyone want twist adaptor for pro joystick with metal gimbal mechanism and custom grip. "Serious" simmer would buy pedals for rudder and Gunfighter. Otherwise just use regular Gladiator and twist and be happy. Some people don't have full use of their legs. Some people p...

Re: Order Kosmosima with Controller

Is the estimated release date for the pre-orders already placed still "mid-march"? Estimated Kosmosima release in the NA store was recently pushed from "End of January" to "after the Chinese New year's break". Will these delays have a knock-on effect on the EU shipment?

Re: Space Combat Grip "Kosmosima"

So Kosmosima Premium can have 4 hat switchs? Can anybody answer this please? "Extra hat switch module for A1 position" Which position is A1? The lower middle one? Looks like. One 5-way hat switch on the side and three on the top. Or alternatively two 5-ways and an analog ministick with pu...

Or Rev A apparently.

There should be someway for these bases to support the new sticks.
Maybe an adapter of some sort.


The EU store has revA Kosmosima grips. Doesn't the NA store have those?

Re: Space Combat Grip "Kosmosima"

Awesome, just saw the newsletter about it! Ok, for some reason I thought there was a scroll wheel centered below the bottom hat. Was that a trick of the light or is that something VKB tried and decided against? Also, can VKB upload an image of the Kosmosima with LED illuminated? I see they come wit...

Re: Gunfighter SGC edition reservation?

I'd also like to raise the question again about rev A to rev B conversion kits or some sort of go-between plug (or a full rev A to rev B extension), seeing as when I order another base I will almost certainly have one of each revision.

Re: Space Combat Grip "Kosmosima"

The North America site has a "Gunfighter SGC edition" up. Hopefully the EU site will also offer an option of base+SGC without having to buy a 2nd grip.

Gunfighter SGC edition reservation?

Hi @Eduard VKB FSC Will it be possible to buy or reserve either a Gunfighter+SGC bundle or a Gunfighter without grip for the upcoming shipments? Currently the only options are Gunfighter with MCG or KG12, and a standalone SGC. Also, will the Gladiator Pro become available in the EU store in the fore...

Re: TESTER? YOU, WE NEED

Only got the one VKB Base for now, but might get one of these later if the modularity pans out well.

Re: TESTER? YOU, WE NEED

The announcement reads that they will supply the upgrade kit if you have a Gunfighter plus a non-Pro Gladiator and is selected as a tester: If an otherwise successful candidate only has a Gunfighter and a Gladiator mkll (non PRO), we will upgrade his Gladiator to Gladiator X (he will have to replace...

Re: Unveiling the VKB TECS Throttle Control System

Yeah, I think I see how they work now, your hand wraps over from the image left, then you lift the part to the right with your fingers and that is connected internally to the part sticking down beneath the grip at the left. I somehow read the finger lifts and detent mechanism as being connected to t...

Re: December'18 batch

What are you talking about. A good rudder pedals are much more precise than any twist joystick, which is btw unnatural to use. I dont know how it is with space sims, maybe they are specific, but generally a good rudder pedals are much more precise. That's the point : I dont know how it is with spac...

Re: Gunfighter Pro comes with a Stick Extension

Gunfighter Pro means it includes an extension. "Gunfighter" or "Gunfighter Tabletop" means it does not include the extension, small baseplate and #50 springs. MCG Pro is an upgraded grip from the regular MCG. There doesn't appear to be a way to select a Gunfighter Pro in the curr...
