Release EDRefCard - makes a printable reference card of your controller bindings

guessing steam controller support was no then oh well :)
I'm not opposed, but the question is, what device is behind the Steam Controller API? Is it a PS4 DualShock? Is it an XBox1 controller? Since I can't determine that from the bindings file alone, I'm in a bit of a fix.

The situaton is similar for people using "Joystick Curves" etc.

I could probably do some work to allow the user to submit an override of the controller type on the form, but then I'd probably get a ton of error reports from users who selected the wrong override. It doesn't sound worthwhile to me.

Great utility. Should be part of the game. It asked me to report my unknown devices. I have some oddities:
1. My Warthog throttle has the delta-sim analogue slew upgrade. PRobably doesnt matter.
2. My left hand stick is a VKB Kosmosima (Space Combat Premium) on Gunfighter Mk 2 base
3. My right hand stick is a VKB Modern Combat Pro, on Gunfighter Mk 2 base, with twist grip (yaw) upgrade

Let me know if I can help in any way - thanks :p

Love this utility, but it is not picking up my Pendular Rudder Pedals. I'm also not sure exactly how to not use the Thrustmaster TARGET software, since it seems to REALLY want it. That said, I'm actively managing my keybinds in Elite. I just have no idea if the Target software is interfering.

Here is my reference code: jvejjq

Also, if anyone has a better keybind setup for the warthog HOTAS with Pendular Rudder Pedals, I'm all ears!
Thank you SO much for this invaluable tool!

I just recently upgraded from a ~20 year old Microsoft Sidewinder joystick to a Thrustmaster T16000M FCS stick (no throttle), and going through the Elite Dangerous control mapping nightmare all over again is a daunting and unpleasant prospect!

Your superb tool will make it MUCH easier to tweak, optimize, and memorize my new control settings!

P.S. My old Microsoft Sidewinder joystick ( generated the following unknown controller error: qyilvq Probably not much demand for it now, but let me know if you'd like a clean high-res photo of it!

thank you for your dedication. Unfortunately, it cant seem to recognise my DS4 Controller:

You have a device that is not supported at this time. Please report details of your device by following the link at the bottom of this page supplying the reference "sgjodq" and we will attempt to add support for it.

Hope you can sort this out

Fly safe!
Unknown controller
Logitech Freedom 2.4 GHz Cordless (looks like a Logitech 3D Pro but with 10 buttons instead of 12)

and also "sxqlex"
Trust GXT 555 Predator, also very similar to Logitech 3D Pro. Has force feedback which is uncommon.

Unknown controller
..and other inconsistencies
The reported unknown controller is "lrmkhj " - the related inconsistency is that I'm running a dual Virpil setup, VPV WarBRD bases and VPC Constellation Delta sticks.
I think I have (finally) managed to set them up correctly as right and left stick - however, EDRefcard didn't get that right. It only shows me the layout of the left stick, but labels it as right stick. I suppose the right stick is the one that is not recognized.

I'll try to put it into a table - if I re-read the verbal description I just wrote, I'm only getting more confused, and I'm sitting right in front of them...

Just uploaded my working ThrustMaster T-Flight One .binds and got an error pointng me here. The reference is: rgkzux This was generated from HCS, so that may have confused the system.
Hello there !
I just received my VKB Gunfighter MK.II with Kosmosima Space Combat Grip Premium-R in replacement of my old T.16000 and this is a really nice joystick.
I really would like to have an edrefcard map for this one, so here are the specifications that can be useful.

Four versions of the grip
  • Kosmosima SCG-L
  • Kosmosima SCG-R
  • Kosmosima SCG Premium-L
  • Kosmosima SCG Premium-R
Premium versions
This version is bundled with extra switches and can be customised like a standard version (see below).
  • A1 switch : Pushing on the #20 button switch the behavior from POV-switch to analog ministick.
  • B2 : The trigger can be pushed or pulled (27 or 26)
  • Fire : The trigger can be softly pushed or hardly pushed (1 or 1+2)

Standard versions
I didn’t find any map of this device but here are the differences from the premium version :
  • No B2 trigger
  • A1 is a Hat switch with center push
  • C1 is a push button
These joysticks are highly customizable with a software that push the setup into the device.
I can submit other informations (like my .bind file) and try to make some good photos if needed.
I have these joysticks also. Would be good to hear your thoughts and suggestions. Could you please add me in-game (Cmdr MacVern). Thx. (MacVern on Discord also)
Thanks for this. NOTE: Its been a while since I played (11 months) and I've added bindings for all the new keyboard control options. Now the keyboard part of the image is cut off on the right side, i.e. it's too small to hold all the items. But I also see that several bindings are duplicated in the keyboard listing...
