Updating VKB Mk II

Postby thiagolpv » Wed May 27, 2020 7:43

I would like to update my VKB Gunfighter MK II firmaware but I have some question:

Should I use "_NJOY32_v1_98_F.vkb" for my joystick?

Follow report:

PS, it has twist.

When choosing a firmware, you should focus on the name of the installed grip. And the Black Box version - the letters MK2 in the name - is for black, without them - for orange.

Thanks for replay.
So, i believe that the correct one is "[i]_BlackBox_MK2_TRudder_v1_98_F.vkb
" as my stick has twist.
Can you confirm?[/i]

Nevermind.

Look at this:
Now I think that I have last firmaware.
If correct, I do not have action.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Thiagolpv,

Looks like you have a Gladiator MKII over there. Also looks like you got the latest VKBDevCfg software version, but your joystick needs a firmware to match that. So do the following:
1. Go to https://vkbcontrollers.com/, click on Donwload section.
2. Download the VKB Device Firmware (v1.98.F), the VKBDevCfg (v0.91.22) and the Bootloader (ZBootloader (v1.18).
3. Put all these 3 files in a separate folder and unzip them.
4. Open VKBDevCfg and navigate to Tools tab, then press on the big square Bootloader button.
5. In the new window press the ... button and navigate to the folder V1.98F and choose the file named _Gladiator_v1_98_F.vkb.
6. Select that file and click OK button. The Bootloader will flash that file and will close.
7. Open again VKBDevCfg and go to Tools tab and press the big square Default button.
8. After joystick restarts go to the Test tab, then Axes section.
9. Press the Start Calibr button and move all the axes on your joystick: pitch, yaw, twist, throttle.
10. When done press End Calibr and from there you're good to go: your joystick is flashed and calibrated properly.

Here's a video that covers this operation, might help you: https://youtu.be/8Ht8yMsdlCQ
