Thrustmaster Tflight Hotas X
 :banghead:

Sorry to bring this TMaster Tflight Hotas X business up again but I'm the newest kid on the block and I cannot get the game (in FSO) to recognize this setup at all.

I see that several members are using this setup but the last post on the subject was over 30 days ago so it was recommended that start a new thread.

Interesting that the hotas is recognized in the original game (I'm using WIN10/64), but is not recognized in FSO.  (I know about the PC/PS3 switch!)

This is supposed to be a "plug and play" setup but not for FSO apparently. I'm all over the place with the mouse.

If anyone hasn't tired of this subject by now and feels he can offer some help, please! Thanks!

PS: if we should get it working, if anyone has any good key binding setups I would also welcome these.

Re: Thrustmaster Tflight Hotas X
Check your launcher.  Are you using wxLauncher?  If so, go to Basic Settings > Joystick.  If not, find that option in whatever launcher you are using.  (If you aren't using a Launcher, you need to, at least for the initial configuration.  I think after that you can directly launch and it will read your settings from the config file.)

Re: Thrustmaster Tflight Hotas X
If you're using wxLauncher, are you using 0.12-rc.2? Is your version of FSO 3.8.0? Additionally, please post your fs2_open.log file.  Instructions on how to do this can be found in this post.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

Re: Thrustmaster Tflight Hotas X
 :shaking:  Well guys, thanks for all the assistance. Frankly, nothing seems to operate as it should. Cannot locate any of the files you request, no matter which launcher I use. And I  now have 3 different ones on my desk top. The TfLIGHT HOTAS X seems to be working, at least partially, in the retail version, but just sits there dead in any of the others. SO...I think I'll just content myself with the retail version from the start. Maybe someday it will all come together...  :(

Thanks again.

Re: Thrustmaster Tflight Hotas X
Thanks, yes I have read through that thread. It's where I was told to start a new thread on the subject since there had been no new post for over 30 days.

Again/still no joy.  :confused:

Making slow progress with the retail training.  :nod:

Re: Thrustmaster Tflight Hotas X
Oh, hey, the fs2_open.log file might be in a different place now.  Try using voidtools' Everything to search for it (instant search for files by name after the initial index is complete, which takes about a minute tops).  Insanely useful tool to have.   Just type in fs2_open.log and see where it is.
