Thanks for reporting this. I've updated the code to put button 31 in the correct place and http://www.mcdee.net/elite/binds/ecuvae should now represent this properly.I have an X52 with button 32 set to Flight Assist and button 31 is my chaff launcher. Your tool writes the Button 31 (Launch Chaff) in the box for Button 32 (and jumbles it with the Flight assist text). Button 31 is the silver thing next to the blue wobble stick on the throttle.
I use 2 different products, a ch throttle and a warthog flight stick. Is there a way of having it generate the 2 together or a mix of items? It generates my throttle controls but expects a ch flightstick so leaves those blank.With the advent of Horizons there are even more bindings to remember, so it's a good time to generate a reference sheet for your own customised configuration.
The reference sheet generator has been updated and is available at http://www.mcdee.net/elite/ It takes a copy of your custom binds file and generates reference sheets for you for both keyboard and HOTAS. Details of how to use it are available on the site.
If you find any problems with the files that are generated, would like another product supported, or have any general comments then please put them here. Thank you, and I hope that you find this useful.
The Warthog isn't supported at the moment. When it is you would receive two sheets, one for the Warthog and one for the Throttle.I use 2 different products, a ch throttle and a warthog flight stick. Is there a way of having it generate the 2 together or a mix of items? It generates my throttle controls but expects a ch flightstick so leaves those blank.
Except that the layout and the info is wonderful.
Good question. It should be from the user's perspective.Great work, jgm!
A quick question to clarify. On the Warthog sheet, the bottom image shows the throttle from the front. Do you still expect the left/back and right/forward actions to be from the user's perspective in-game (recommend, imho), or directly related to the pic so the user has to mentally flip the image/functions? Up/down is usually pretty self-explanatory.
I haven't seen that ID for the CH throttle before. If it has the same as the standard mappings for the throttle then http://www.mcdee.net/elite/binds/qlpsgz should now show the correct values. Please let me know if it does, and if it doesn't which ones are incorrect. Thanks.
The problem with attempting to use the X52 software configuration (or any of the external managers) is that because it's a macro generator there could be anything at all in there and it becomes next-to-impossible to work through all of the combinations. Even something as simple as having full weapon pips is not something that could easily be described on the reference sheet generator; for example if there's a clear macro that can be parsed out I could obtain the details but it would look something like "equalise power;increase power to weapons;increase power to weapons;increase power to weapons" which wouldn't be very legible.This looks great, I uploaded my binds file to view it and noticed some are "blank".
The ones blank are the ones where I use the software that comes with my x52 and have some macros. E.g. The fire button, on full trigger it changes my power distribution to have full weapon pips, The pinky works in "mode 1 (red)" to deploy hardpoint.
So maybe a 2nd option to upload a file from the software might be a good idea.
