Re: Unveiling the VKB TECS Throttle Control System

I may be wrong, but I believe the limit in axis count and button count for mapping to some games with a stick "out of the box" is a *game* programming limit. I thought that the VKB software included virtual keyboard operation as well, so you can map buttons beyond "#32" or whatev...

Re: MCG loose base

My only criticism of my VKB MCG Pro would be the slight wiggle I have between the stick grip and its metal fitting that connects to the extension. I am surprised to find that many people have this problem. Mine did this out of the box. It has worked so well in all other ways that I never thought mu...

Re: News on HOTAS setup??

It is a very very long thread, but on IL-2 forums there's a discussion with the designer and others from VKB about TECS development, with much evolution. Might skip the first 20-30 pages even, and of course you may wish to read translated. All links to follow are from there. A couple more recent hig...

Re: When the Twist adapter releases for EU question

I was never insulted, I simply disagreed strongly. I see the whole "twist sucks, pedals excel" debate over and over here, at reddit/r/hotas, and other gaming sites, and I finally just wanted to say something. If I insulted you in turn (and I don't believe I did, although I did characterize...

Re: When the Twist adapter releases for EU question

Why are you assuming that the twist would only be used for rudder input? if I have the choice of twist and rudders I may choose to use the twist for something else that I need simultaneous with foot pedal operation. For example combining steering with turret traverse or torso traverse in a mech type...

Re: News on HOTAS setup??

Crossing my fingers that Aerogator throws you a bone here. ;-) The only things they've said recently are that it is still in the queue, and there's a lengthy thread on the IL-2 forums with the designer actually discussing things with potential users. But nothing concrete has come out for a while as ...

Re: When the Twist adapter releases for EU question

Now you're assuming I'm upset. I'm perplexed, perhaps that people make absolutist statements and then ask anyone who pushes back to explain themselves. You did not reply to me personally, but you did reply that anyone who is my position simply does not want twist, which is untrue, and if left standi...

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. Why on earth do some posters think that they speak for every...

Re: VKB Gunfighter MK II B - Base dimension query

Just a cellphone potato pic for now, but promised image of installed result: https://i.imgur.com/tPpeFeG.jpg The VKB base is powder coated black, and the plate I had made is black anodized, so the whole edge of mine is the as-machined finish not just the chamfer I had added. But I'm still extraordin...

Re: VKB Gunfighter Mk II B and MCG-Pro Conflict with Razer Synapse

OK, post above (mine!) is just plain wrong. I opened my Gunfighter again and realized I was misremembering things. Here's what I believe is happening with either X-axis occasional glitches, or the hat switch "press" buttons going off while actuation, which usually happens when moving in X....

Re: VKB Gunfighter Mk II B and MCG-Pro Conflict with Razer Synapse

I really think that one cable that goes to the X axis sensor board, up sort of "Thru" the middle of the gimbal, gets brushed and bumped and gradually worked loose by joystick operation. I'm seeing an occasional return of my problem even after unplugging the Razor entirely and turning off (...

Re: Gladiator Pro Mk II/III?/X?/Mysterious-New-Product-Yet-To-Be-Announced and Kosmosima

...if I wanted to snag a Kosmosima grip as soon as they hit the store and then pick up a Gladiator-type base whenever the next batch become available... That's what I gave an opinion on. If you want a base with buttons, then there's really only the Gladiator (non-pro) Mk II which does not have a re...

Re: Gladiator Pro Mk II/III?/X?/Mysterious-New-Product-Yet-To-Be-Announced and Kosmosima

I'm not VKB, just a user, and you don't specify if you are in US, Europe, or elsewhere. But if you want to get a base and Kosmosima "at the same time" and soon(ish) I believe your best option is the Gunfighter Mk II base, as it's the most recent interface and therefore the most likely one ...
