CH Manager on Win10 is what finally pushed me over the edge to get a Warthog setup. CH Manager worked, sometimes, when it felt like it, and was sometimes fixable randomly by restarting (sometimes once but often 5-10x restarting it). The quality of the TM (and more so the Virpil base I have now) is just so much higher too.
@jack72 the same as SIM Pinky Shift just without the Pinky feature.
So only shift without the already explained above Pinky Shift pressed < 0.5 seconds changes FOV on most SOI.
Most use the Pinky switch on the HOTAS Stick as with the combined function. In terms of ergonomic it’s the button that leaves you the most freedom for all your other fingers.
Still for sale! Now €150 shipped anywhere in the EU…
CH Fighterstick USB - new 12 bit mainboard and magnetoresitive X/Y sensors, very precise, throttle wheel disconnected
CH Pro Throttle USB - new 12 bit mainboard and magnetoresitive sensor, very precise
CH Pro Pedals USB - new brake pots, work perfectly
All original pots/boards and some spares come with the gear. CH Control Manager will NOT work with these mainboards, so if that is an issue you must reinstall the OEM boards. The new sensors work fine in Ctrl Manager…
For the (few I believe) owners of the old Gameport Pro Pedals, I made a small PCB to convert them to USB. If you want to get rid of the Gameport cable and connectors once for all it is obviously possible to wire the potentiometers directly to the Arduino.
The Monstertech stuff is actually made from aluminum extrusion, and what you’re paying for is the cutting and powder coating. But you can do that yourself, WAY cheaper using CNC linear rail - that’s all it is, and you can even get it in black if you want:
…looks like Open Builds is out of stock just now, but I’ve bought quite a bit of stuff frm them in building my own CNC router. I’m a huge fan of building with linear rail. And you can buy just the controller mounts. DIY, custom build, get just what you want…for less.
I’ve had my CH gear at least 17 years. During that Time, I have listened to everybody that I fly with about having this part or that go out on their cougar, and have to be grounded until the parts got there. I have never had a single part replaced. CH is reliable as the day is long. I will never give it up.
While the script here is very interesting and helpful why not just using speed brakes toggle? It costs you only one valuable button on your busy HOTAS. And from my experience the toggle covers all your braking needs when flying in formation, hanging on the boom etc.
Hi again jc1
What a strange issue…
Do you use TARGET for hotas warthog? I do, and I have to run it (BMS profile) before running BMS
Malc, I’ve had this problem for a long time and researched all the BMS forums, even the WWW, and never could find a solution. So I started this thread. I hope the Devs could do something, but if not I know they’re working other stuff that makes Falcon a great sim since they got involved way back. Thanks for your help.
Caldero, yes I use TARGET and run it before running BMS. Thanks for your help.
Just trying to figure the best way to go about recreating the wheel 😉
Seriously, I want to basically do the same thing that the default CHCM layout does. I need to dump CHCM because it has some compatibility problems with other things I run on my PC and I’d love to build myself a template layout with some functionality duplicated across different simulations.
Thanks! Perhaps typing it out led to a moment of clarity, I eventually figured it out last night! It was after I found a tutorial video on CH Control Manager that had a quick comment about unchecking DX and assigning a specific key. I had been trying to edit the key file in hopes that I could maintain the shift functionality of that button, but not a big deal. PTT works now so that’s good enough!
