Gladiator Mk.II Firmware Issue

Postby Clipper996 » Sun Dec 24, 2017 23:52

Today i decided to "update" the firmware on my Gladiator Mk.II believing that it used an outdated version. The version i installed is 1.81.7 (which is the newest one available on the official website) but little did i know that i had in fact regressed as i had version 1.85 previously installed (this came with the stick when i first received it in mid-autumn this year). The problem is that the HAT switch does not work at all now in X-Plane 10 (it worked perfectly well with previous firmware), and now can only function properly when used with the pinkie button, and the mode switch button does not provide any functionality beyond switching the color of the indicator.

Now i wonder, is it possible to return to the previous version either through rollback or by installing the 1.85 (or whichever is the newest one) firmware, and if the latter is a possibility, where in the world can i find 1.85+ firmware to download?

Had the same issue with the hat switch. I think it has something to do with your selected profile. I just updated my firmware and it got rid of the issue, I'm assuming because of how it changed my profile to default. It broke all my axis, though, so it's extremely frustrating.
