Re: Unveiling the VKB TECS Throttle Control System

Grips can connect to the Blackbox directly. 4-pins BUS connector 1 - GND 2 - Shield 3 - VCC 4 - Signal On my blackbox, the BUS connector is 6-pin. The grips can only go on the connector where you would normally attach the Gunfighter? I guess there would be issues attaching multiple grips to a singl...

Re: Unveiling the VKB TECS Throttle Control System

I realize you have had bad experience with DIY:ers before, but could you be persuaded to release a specification/pinout for the bus port, joystick port and grip connector? I understand there would be a way to attach a grip directly to it without passing through a base, which would be quite useful fo...

Re: Unveiling the VKB TECS Throttle Control System

If they were only engineers and not happy to sell, I believe they would just keep the gear for themselves. :D I think I will wait for the well known and trusted Thrustmaster to come up with their new gear, it will probably take as long as having the opportunity and luck to put an order from Virpil ...

Re: Unveiling the VKB TECS Throttle Control System

Toxic behavior?? lol The person merely asked for an update to a product that was announced 15 months ago. He also stated a fact that should be obvious to any business person. If you cant produce the product that people are waiting for, they will go somewhere else. Thats hardly a toxic statement or ...

Re: December'18 batch

@Eduard If you do not know within reasonable doubt when you will receive the shipments, I would suggest being a lot more vague with your release date statements. E.g. "April 2019" or "Q2 2019" instead of "April 7, 2019". Naming a specific day makes it seem much more pre...

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.
