SF2 profile issue with TARGET and T.16000M Hotas
AxtonJT posted a topic in Thirdwire: Strike Fighters 2 Series - General DiscussionGreetings everyone. I've returned back to Strike Fighters 2 after having decided to purchase a Hotas, so I can fly in this game properly, however it seems the Hotas I've purchased is not that great. And by that I mean the software used is kind of ... crap. I've purchased the Thrustmaster t16000m, pretty solid Hotas, but the TARGET software is just terrible. I didn't know that, otherwise I could have avoided purchasing this device, but now I have it and I cannot return it back unfortunately. By navigating the config file included in this site, I've found the TARGET profile for T.16000M joystick and TWCS Throttle to use with SF2 series 1.0, so I've said "cool, a config is ready to be used for my Hotas", but what seemed to be an easy solution it became a very frustrating experience, and I am not sure if the script that is broken or instead is TARGET (which I suspect it is, considering the amount of complains on internet). When I plug both my Hotas and TWCS on the USB, everything works smoothly, both the USB ports are set not to be disabled for power management purposes, but when I start TARGET and loading the above mentioned script, after a while I've got the device disconnected. Also it seems to be a very random issue, because sometimes the Hotas disconnects, or sometimes the TWCS disconnects, or sometimes even both disconnects. Here is the error from TARGET: Physical USB HID devices managed by script! Currently plugged USB HID devices: 1: "T.16000M Joystick" - "USB\VID_044F&PID_B10A&REV_0500" 2: "TWCS Throttle" - "USB\VID_044F&PID_B687&REV_0110" Installing filter driver to VID_044F&PID_B10A.

Aborting script! Aborting script (check output above for reason)... Script stopped! Have you ever had any issue with TARGET? A similar situation as the above one? I've read that is better to use an alternative to TARGET, such as Joystick Gremlin for instance, but I am not able to find any Strike Fighter 2 profile for that specific software so I am not sure how to make it works. Somebody can help me with this issue? Thanks
Saitek X52 (Non Pro), Unable to configure HOTAS throttle/stick
Thunderone posted a topic in Thirdwire: Strike Fighters 2 Series - General DiscussionHi, I have been playing Strike Fighters 2 since past few years using a Keyboard. But I recently borrowed a HOTAS from a friend who wasn't using it anymore. After installing the latest driver in my PC, the HOTAS identified by the game as well (Strike Fighters 2 full package, updated till March 2012). However, I am confused when it comes to setting up the controls. The buttons on the HOTAS are very well functioning (after adding via SF2 Key Mapping menu), but the game is not recieving any input from Throttle and Stick at all. Both systems are fine, no issues as Logitech Software also acknowledges the throttle and stick movement. So can somebody please help me out in fixing this issue? Thank You
Probably one of the best Solutions I have found for Mounting
ironroad posted a topic in The PubWhen it comes to us flight and space simmers we have been pretty much left out in the cold the last decade or so. Most companies have gone the console or racing sim/game route when it comes to accessories. Came across this because for over two years I have been looking for an alternative to the now defunct Joylock Clamp system. https://forums.robertsspaceindustries.com/discussion/151681/joystick-or-hotas-desk-mounting-hardware http://www.fanatec.com/us-en/shifter-accessories/clubsport-shifter-table-clamp-us.html 29.95 USD, not sure how much they charge for shipping, but looks like it holds some promise. The L-bracket is 21.95. http://www.altrider.com/rotopax-l-bracket/pid/398and sold by a different company. Before I got my current desk, the Ikea Fredde, I used of metal braces and L-shaped brackets to make a mount for my X65 HOTAS system. The brackets worked; but the system was fixed, the corners were sharp and dangerous, and it required drilling into the desk to mount it. Not sure what the shipping would be for the above clamps and for those in North America/The Americas, I believe these objects ship from Europe or the UK (not sure). More information and examples of use can be found on the Roberts Space Industries form (link above).
