I think is best to open a dedicated thread for this as the one in which ron and fallout were trying to help me were for others means.
As already reported in these two threads viewtopic.php?f=25&t=4280 and viewtopic.php?f=25&t=4174 i have issues with the NG firmware and the KG12 grip.
I have 3 grips from VKB (MCG Pro, KG12 and F14) and a gunfighter Mk3 base.
In order to don't flash a firmware on the blackbox every time I (we) need to change grip the NG firmware can be used which has a Multidevice firmware which should recognize directly the grip when you exchange (so you just need to park or unplug the device and load the profile for the grip and no to flash a new firmware)..very clever move from the developers. Unfortunately it is in beta and for me with the Kg12 grip it does not work.
I have no issues in switching from MCG Pro to F14 grip and backwards but the KG12 grip will not be recognized.
I also made a video for showing the issue https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzgjVfhm2fA
After some time fallout was able to have the same issue as me

Trying to set up the Gladiator/KG12 stick, after pressing Set the software takes double time to restart and gets back to Modern Combat. Software issue could be an explanation, not unexpected considering is in beta.
I suggest to wait for Ron's input.
And also user Zappovitz which has 2 grips has the same......................

I have tried to find a good thread regarding multidevice ... but no luck .. can you point me in the right direction.
Now when you flash the multidevice firmware, there are many changes in the default settings, so be aware that you need to change that to make that working as intended (for example with the MCG Pro you need to set the POV number to 2).
In particular in the profile there are these devices by default (you can see gladiator is there but not kg12)...I still don't understand if this is normal and intended or we need to change manually to KG12 grip (i tried both...more on this later)
Anyway if you leave this way:
The kg12 grip won't work at all. And no buttons will be recognized..
also the grip won't be seen in anyway
But if you change to KG12 and set...it will be seen
And the buttons will be detected (but with a layout deriving from the MCG Pro profile so not correct) and the device name will still be VKB Gunfighter Modern Combat Pro...while it should be VKB gunfigher vintage, and the profile is still the number 1 (should be number 3)
Instead using the F14 grip it will be recognized correctly as Vkb Gunfigher F14 with his own profile (number 4) independent from the MCG Pro one (first).
Now i guess that this is due to the fact that is beta firmware/software...but I hope the developers could be contacted on this because maybe I (we) are doing something wrong.
So please........Ron or anyone....Some words on this?
