Re: Gunfighter Mk. III + MCG Ultimate Springs

Hello everyone, I just received my Gunfighter Mk. III with the Modern Combat Grip Ultimate (all metal) yesterday. I am a bit of a rookie when I comes to such professional gear. But I have noticed that the springs that come pre-installted with the stick are a bit on the weak side (#20 I believe). I ...

Re: CAD/step files for Gunfighter base

IF you want just the dimensions of the extrusion and its 4 holes, that you can position on an extrusion endplate outline any way you want, maybe this old thread will help? http://forum.vkb-sim.pro/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=3389&p=33352#p33352 ...at end of that thread I even shared my DXF file I b...

Re: How to mount gunfighter to sim rig

OP, post more of a close up of your existing Warthog mount. You probably just need a different baseplate.

Re: VKB EXTENSION MODULES: FOUR GOOD GUYS

They posted over on reddit that they were just waiting on the official photos to launch the various store pages (my paraphrase, not exact quote). It's past 0700 for me (US Central, about noon Zulu) as I type.

Re: Gladiator NXT messing with my screen saver

Interesting I think this has just started happening to me; I didn't put it together with the sticks because I've had them forever, but I did notice lately when I go away and come back (not gaming, just computer sitting idle with a browser or MS Office window of some sort open) my screensaver hasn't ...

Re: I need help programming my MCG Ultimate (IL2 BOS)

I get his confusion though, and think I understand his intent. It can be really daunting. There's so much you could do, either in game, in VKBDevCfg, in something external like Joystick Gremlin or whatever. What's the best approach, the best path? In the end there's so many choices there really is n...

Re: I need help programming my MCG Ultimate (IL2 BOS)

Apologies if all the below seems really patronizing, but are you basically asking about the whole "philosophy" of control architectures? I think you are but if I'm wrong all this nattering is going to be annoying as heck... Not sure if this helps, but think of any analog control as having ...

Re: VKB EXTENSION MODULES: FOUR GOOD GUYS

Soooo... when do I find out how much of a hit my wallet is taking? Also, any chance for pre-ordering? I normally am against the practice, but am wanting to upgrade to a Gladiator NXT, rudder pedals, and get a button box while I'm at it, and would prefer to save money on shipping. Or will the thrott...

Re: Gunfighter Mk.III 'Space Combat Edition' z axis decalibrating often

This might be totally unrelated, I wonder if the "dirty" magnet had a little magnetizable metal dust on it, that was throwing off the sensor. My first Gunfighter gimbal (MK II) was bought a long time ago with the first production run of the Modern Combat Grip Pro (no longer available, they...

Re: "Omni Throttle"/angled adapter

That's only shown on a GNXT though. We're all speculating about it coming for Gunfighter too. Which makes sense, I think....but isn't what's pictured there unless I miss-viewed it.

Re: "Omni Throttle"/angled adapter

No question, if VKB offer an official one instead of home-designed ones, it's gonna be well thought out because that's in their DNA. ;) They'll make sure that the grip return to center is the same as for the normal grip orientation, I bet. I can't see how simply taking a gimbal and "rotating it...

Re: "Omni Throttle"/angled adapter

Not sure what you mean. I've got the left hand angled grip aligned so that my elbow is on an armrest, and if I just relax I'm not moving it but still have good access to all the controls. My leftforearm actually feels a little more 'relaxed' than my right forearm does loosely gripping (MCG Ultimate)...

Re: "Omni Throttle"/angled adapter

I ain't VKB and have no right to answer you for them. That said, I have to believe something that's essentially just a HARD CABLE (extension with pins either end), if offered for the lower priced NXT line, would also be offered for Gunfighter. Not all at the same time probably though. So you might b...

Re: Gunfighter MKIII MCG (latest rev) Axis Questions 09.21.21

Still crossing my fingers for a left hand Kosmosima Premium Ultimate vs. LH MCG-U.

I keep meaning to pull the rubber pad from my MCG-U and attempt my own leather formed cover instead. Currently thinking black ray skin with the sanded dentil knobs would be awesome...

Re: VKB TECS: MODULARITY FULL AHEAD

Pure hyperbole. They've fleshed out most of what to expect on the first 3 variants although not shown them 100% [test harness body only], and still have teasered that there's some other tricks up their sleeves. Otherwise if you don't care when it's coming...what else would you want that would be hel...
