Throttle hat switches are not active?
I’d like to ask if anybody else have such problem with G940, that when joystick is selected as default device in BMS, then hat switches from throttle are not active.
The workaround is of course to map keyboard shortcuts to hats and then map these shortcuts to DMS and CMS, but I’d preffer to avoid any assignment to Logitech profiler if I don’t really need to use it.
And second question, does anybody else encountered such situtation, that after some time of flying, simulator stopped to response to any G940 buttons as well as for minx/miny joystick, and R1/R2/Trim1/Trim2/Trim3 potentiometers? Then after another 'some time" it returns to normal behaviour.
Correct, DirectX POV hat is only considered for the default device.
Please note this is my best solution at this time and I’m yet to robustly test it!
first question: I’m having the same problem you are with my g40 hats. I think i’ve fixed it though:
Switches that have multiple modes of operation (long presses etc) cannot be combo keys (so, ‘Shift-Delete’ for example). As far as I can tell, this is TMS and the comms switch.
So, what you need to do is put the comms switch and TMS to the left/right/up/down and del/end/pgdn/home key binds in BMS and swap whatever was already on those (ICP for the arrow keys) to a ‘shifted variation’.
Then, assign keystrokes to the hats (in the Logitech software, sorry Amarok its the only way) to do the left/right/up/down and del/end/pgdn/home keys and you should be good to go.
Second question: I haven’t seen that (i’ve experienced the R1/2 on the throttle not working and fixed that with some rewiring). might be worth cracking open the joystick and seeing if your have stressed wires in there.
