Solved ICP and Radar Cursors
i’m flying with a X52PRO, a couple of MFD Cougar and since several days i got an ICP.
The latter is yet not fully installed, because of DCS switch.
I tried to set just on keyboard the buttons for DCS, but every combination, even if different, is linked to my radar cursor (usually linked to my X52PRO minimouse), so if i select a number on ICP (for example nr 4-STPT on device or on the screen by mouse) and click the right combination of keys on keyboard for DCS, the minimouse stop working as radar cursor and start acts like only up or down DCS.

What ICP do you have? may be some user with the same model can help
I do not have any ICP, but looks like your DCS is in axes mode, may be the icp have a software and you can change the fuction to buttons or something.
Check in the advances setup if you can set your DCS in any axe or tray to move the dcs and look if some of the already asiggned axes moves or not
I bought it in Etsy, is an Arduino based ICP.
Windows sees is as a joystick with 28 buttons and a 4 way POV.
Inside UI preference the buttons works regularly (as during flight), but when i move the DCS stick nothing is moving.
The AL recognise the stick movement as POV but no way to register anything
I don’t know how to change Arduino to make Windows seeing the ICP as a 32 buttons keypad.

@69tantra if it’s actually a HID directional-hat (not just 4 buttons) you might have to abandon AL and do some cfg and key file tweaks, by hand.
BMS supports up to 2 “pov” hats, and they can be on same device or different devices. But I don’t think current AL has any ability to setup or configure that.
You will probably need some cfg like this (not sure about device-row numbers on your setup, of course… consult the technical-manual for details… the line-numbering scheme is confusing).
set g_nNumOfPOVs 2 set g_nPOV1DeviceID 2 // line number of device in DeviceSorting.txt (plus 1?) set g_nPOV1ID 0 // id of hat on that device (typically 0) set g_nPOV2DeviceID 3 set g_nPOV2ID 0
The next problem, I’m not sure if/how BMS supports 4-way hats. (Most joysticks have 8-way hats, so the numbering is [0-7].)
You can try numbering [0-3]…
SimICPDEDUP 1 -1 -3 0 0x0 -1 SimICPDEDSEQ 1 -1 -3 1 0x0 -1 SimICPDEDDOWN 1 -1 -3 2 0x0 -1 SimICPResetDED 1 -1 -3 3 0x0 -1
Or numbering [0,2,4,6]…
SimICPDEDUP 1 -1 -3 0 0x0 -1 SimICPDEDSEQ 1 -1 -3 2 0x0 -1 SimICPDEDDOWN 1 -1 -3 4 0x0 -1 SimICPResetDED 1 -1 -3 6 0x0 -1
Hey airtex2019…do you wanna marry me???
I love you
It works perfectly.
I just copied the first 5 lines inside “Falcon BMS User” and now i got everything i was looking for.
Thanks sooooooooo much.

@69tantra hooray, glad to help! I am already married … and I’m told I’m very difficult to live with. so don’t feel too sad about that
