Hi everyone, it's me again with another "Noob" type issue.
The time has come when I'd like to set up my controls and joystick to my own preferences and although I have a rough idea of how to do it, there are a few things I'm unsure of or don't know and I'm worried about just pressing buttons and hoping for the best because with my immense lack of knowledge, when it all goes t*ts up, I'll be stuck.
My joystick is the Logitech Force 3D Pro, although I don't think that matters for my questions.
In ROF, the set up and function/button/key assignments in the workshop are pretty easy to follow and I don't think I'll have much of a problem. Now obviously I've set the sim for joystick control rather than mouse and the aileron, elevator, rudder and throttle controls will be as normal (I don't have rudder pedals or a HOTAS system) so it's the twist rudder and throttle lever on the stick base...… As far as the other buttons on my stick go, I guess it's up to the individual to choose which function they wish to assign where, depending on their preference.
So my first thought is the hat button.. Since I use IR head tracking, can I disable the hat and assign other functions to it?
Now I come to the bit I really don't understand much about at all.
I have three flight sim type games. ROF, WOFF and IL2-1946..... Say my stick is set up for ROF and I now want to set it up for one of the others. I may well want to have different functions assigned to some buttons but I don't want to lose my settings for ROF. There seems to be some option for filing settings in each game but I'm not sure how this works or if/how I then go about opening the files to run with the relevant game.
This maybe what's meant by "Multiple Assignments" but within a single game, eg, ROF, could I program for different aircraft?... Let's say I choose to have button 3 as the blip switch, could I also have it to drop bombs for aircraft with a bombing option?
I know you guys will have the answers.
Thanks, as always.
