I have checked the cables and connections and it looks good to me. My Warthog Stick works great 'all buttons work'. When I first got the Gladiator Pro and I also bought a Standard Gladiator I could not get the rudders to work. I have had the Rudders for a few years they came with the Tiny Box. I disconnected from the computer and disconnected from the Tiny Box and hooked straight to the Gladiators. I don't have the Standard Gladiator anymore I returned it because I liked the Pro better. I appreciate the help Ron61 has given me with getting the buttons to work on my Warthog but I cannot get the Config 78 versions to work 'keeps saying device cannot be found'. All the Config versions 77 work so I don't know what to do next. I have never modified any of the config programs so all my stuff is defaults. I watched the video but since I cant run the 78 config I cant perform the steps.

I wish I could do more, but this is really up to the VKB software gurus to figure out. I hope they'll get you going soon!

Okay. Show screenshots with a working version of the configurator.
The handle can be Warthog is not at all connected, when in doubt in her performance. In general, no handle, only the base.
And do not load any profile. Reset to default. We do not connect the pedal.
We calibrate the 3-axis, without grip. X, Y and throttle.

If the Gladiator Pro version, then there is no physically twist axis (3 axis in the 1screenshot), and grip is not Mars, and, of course, will be empty 4pin connector (2 picture).
Therefore, we disable a non-existent axis External (put None 2 places), and remove the activation of the check boxes En, Vs in logical axes.
After the previous calibration values ​​KdHi, KdLo = 255, that is not quite correct. To select the correction Presic =11, MPL =9 for the axes X and Y. For Z (throttle) Presic = 9-10, MPL = 8.
And virtual (6,7,8) to change D_Mars. Save the changes to the controller by pressing the Set. Connect the pedal. After restarting the configurator, we check the stored values ​​and do the calibration.
After it look like changed KdHi and KdLo. Show a screenshot.
I can not provide a screenshot, because little has changed Gladiator configuration (available here). But, believe me, my 3-axis pedals on Mars are working fine :D .

Hi Guys
I have installed the adapter and loaded the special profile via Wizzo.
Most buttons work on the WT grip except the one under the gray hat.???
Also the mode light on the Gladiator Pro is in red color and can't be changed to green color.
Thanks' David

Wizzo, as well as the Windows, will not display the button for more than 32. In your profile to work properly with the Warthog, announced 37. And if you run the configurator and in the Test tab, test all the buttons? It can display all 128 buttons.
Since the profile Mode button not used, and the mode switch LED will not. But using the unlimited possibilities of the configurator, you can change the brightness, color or completely shut down. Change the value and save on color2 (Set button). After restarting, the color changes to green. You can see more here.

Hi
Finally found that VKBDevCfg-C_v0.77.66 can show the buttons over the 32 limit.
How can I assign a hat button for my use?

Thanks, David

Hi guys

Tried to add the line user=developer under user section,but nothing is seen in vkbconfig.
Do I need the Gladiator Pro grip or it can work with the Warthog grip?

Thanks, David

Open Global - Common tab and set #But to 128.
open Profile - Buttons - Physical layer tab. Check Poll. Push hat to all directions and see numbers of corresponding lines. Click one of these four lines. Button mapping wizard dialog window appears. Select Button instead of default POV switch. push Set button. You will have a button from an arrow. Change other arrows to buttons.
Button is the simpliest function.

Changed out the Cable that came with the Rudders with an extra Ethernet cable I had for my Direct TV Modem and now it works.

The cable that came with the VKB Rudders 'Tiny Box' has a sticker on it that says 'Not for Ethernet!' on one side and Rudder Link Only on the other side. That cable will not work with the Gladiator Pro but the Cable that I switched to 'it was for my Wifi Modem' says Ethernet Cable and it works, so why is that? I see where someone made a special cable to get it to work but was that necessary if mine works with just a regular Ethernet cable. I tested it also with the Tiny Box and it works with it also.
