Release Laz's T.16000 M FCS HOTAS Bindings v1.1

Original Release

Welcome to the next release of my current setup. As before I felt things needed to change a little since the release of chapter four. Please see the previous post as to what this is exactly and why it matters to any T16k M FCS HOTAS owner. Also I apologize for the forum spam that will proceed this release as I am not able to edit my previous post for whatever reason, so all future updates (until that changes, if it does) will be done in a new post, followed up by a post in the previous release stating that there is an updat

That outta the way, here is what has changed and something to watch out for when using the HOTAS in chapter 4.

Changes:
  • Jettison Cargo is now Enter/Exit Full Spectrum Scanner. (Group 1 button 10 on PDF)
  • Play GalNet is now Switch Mode between combat and discovery. (Group 1 button 8 on PDF)
  • Disable/Enable orbit lines is now Night Vision Toggle. (Group 1 button 7)
  • Joy Hat-Switch UP now targets in FSS mode the object you are pointing at. This sets a marker on the target so when you leave you can fly your ship to the selected object.
  • Rotation Correction is now set to properly toggle.
  • Joy 4 on the main joy stick is set to toggle planet side view while in DSS.
Additions:
There have been multiple additions due to the release of FSS and DSS.
- While in FSS (Full Spectrum Scan)...
--- Firing send out the discovery scanner signal as it used to prior to the FSS addition.

--- Spectrum change is the joy stick on the throttle while moving the camera is controlled with the primary joy stick.
------- Spectrum change can also be controlled with the middle joy hat switch on the throttle

--- Zooming to a target is controlled on the throttle paddles.
------- Zooming can also be controlled with the top hat switch on the throttle

--- Joy 3 on main stick opens FSS help/tutorial.

--- Exit FSS by hitting joy 2 on main stick.

For DSS, you must assign it to its OWN firing group as if it's associated with anything else, while in discovery mode, it will not work properly with these bindings.
  • To activate DSS go to the firing group it is assigned to and hit the fire button on the joy stick
  • While in DSS (Detailed Surface Scan)...
--- Using the fire button on the joystick will fire the probe.
--- Clicking joy 4 will show the opposite side of the planet and what sectors are missing/awaiting probing.
--- Exit DSS by hitting joy 2 on main stick.

- Dead Zone has been added to ALL axis on the joy stick. Get familiar with them as they are quite small and allow for light hand resting on the main joy stick.

Hello Cmdr.
I copied and installed in bindings folder.
I am not seeing it in the dropdown options under Controls/Presets
Any ideas ?

Thanks and fly dangerous

Ps. I only have the Hotas Throttle. I use a Logitech joystick ( hotas failed on me ).

Hi o'moylan,

If you check your bindings folder you'll see an error file that ED creates when it loads IF it finds any bindings file that includes references to hardware that is missing.

The binding file provided by Laz was created using his HOTAS...so likely both the throttle AND joystick.
Because you have a different joystick, ED throws the error and marks the bind file unusable....hence you can't select it.

This is done. Originally I had intended for it to simply be pulled up on a 2nd monitor, but if people would like to print it out more power for you there!
