Re: Wire for X-axis (?) disconnected from Connector in Gunfighter

Mine did something kind of like that once, where X-axis movement to the right seemed to get oddly intermittent or not make full range. I opened it all up and 'arranged' the wires into place a little bit, made sure connections were tight, and made sure to be careful when I put the whole thing back do...

Re: Gunfighter MCG pro Primary Trigger 1st Stage Not Registering

Yeah looks like the spring in bowing instead of compressing. I stuck some folded card in there and it solved it. Its too hard to tell if the spring is twisting to toughen it with tweezers :) https://imgur.com/a/hC9Ij Crazy thought that would probably not work but in some constructed mattresses they...

Re: Twist Adapter ETA?

In all fairness, the other guys might fumble the ball a bit after "opening a factory". It's not like you just buy the machines, install them, flip a switch, and product comes out. Factories (whether you are building your own or having production done elsewhere and overseeing the line) take...

Re: Gunfighter rev. A to rev B how to?

I am not VKB, just an owner like you, so I probably should let them answer. But from the pictures I've seen there is more than just the upside down electrical contact difference in the joystick shaft between the Mk I and Mk II. (All Mk II's are B, but I think they changed other parts too.) Mk I dry ...

Re: Any updates on MCG Pro Z-Aaxis adapter OR the left handed variant of the stick?

By Z-axis adapter, do you mean twist?

There was a post by a VKB-rep on reddit with an expectation date of mid-May:

Re: SUGGESTED STICKY REQUEST: FW and VKBDevCfg Versions

Somehow I got the first link to work.

The second link claims to be v1.0.0, same date (Aug 2016) as what's up at /Programms/

This is starting to be examples of why I was suggesting (nicely, I hope!) a sticky. :-)

Thanks again.

Re: SUGGESTED STICKY REQUEST: FW and VKBDevCfg Versions

Thank you, Victorus, but your last (Bootloader 1.11) link in the message above is asking for a Google Drive password. The two top links worked fine.

Since you said it was very important to avoid errors, I'm hesitant to attempt firmware update without that copy of Bootloader.

SUGGESTED STICKY REQUEST: FW and VKBDevCfg Versions

Gents: The last formally avaiable firmware for the MCGPro on Gunfighter (Mk II) *appears* to be 1.92.1. Yet there are still reports it causes many random buttons to show as pressed, while a 1.92.9 (?) is floating around in links here in the forums. Could we PLEASE get a sticky at the top of the Tech...

Re: Had to open MCG to tighten loose screws

...I must say tho that given how critical that particular connection is to the stick and that it's a high stress connection dealing with literally every movement made, ... I don't think this is true. The 2 screw arrangement only holds that electrical connector from sliding up and down to maintain e...

Re: Calibration after flashing v1.91F

I have this exact same issue with the latest 1.921. I'll try the FW version posted in this thread to see if it fixes it. Yeah, I really need to know WHAT firmware version is right for WHAT Gunfighter base and/or Blackbox. I have a MkII Gunfighter (B), and an MCG-Pro. Current advice from VKBcontroll...

Firmware updates and Import/Export of existing edits

Gents, quick basic top-level question, applicable to overall VKB operations, but in my personal context I'm asking regarding the Gunfighter MkII Base (B-connection) with a Modern Combat Grip Pro (MCGPro) mounted. There has been several rapid firmware updates. I know this will settle out soon. Howeve...

Don't forget the pro version of the grip also has the 4-way-plus-press in the thumb position, not just a button.

Re: MCG Pro in Elite Dangerous

Try the powered Hub again later. It might still work. I didn't do it with any real purpose aside from convenience, but the first time I tested the stick in Elite it was plugged directly into a USB port on the computer...one of the front case headers provided from the motherboard. I moved it to a pow...
