HOTAS - no throttle detection anymore - with workaround

Post by OceanBlue » Mon, 20. Aug 18, 23:57

Hi,

i'played XR with an Logitech G940 Hotas, which worked fine so far.

Now i have an Virpil WarBRD with a MongoosT 50 and a MongoosT Throttle.
The problem is, that XR not recognizes the throttle. I have only the stick (and my Logitech G13 and Spacemouse) in the config menu.
In Windows Gamecontroller joy.cpl i see the throttle and games like Star Citizen are fine with the Virpil Hotas.

Has anyone a hint for me for this problem?

I've wrote the problem in the Virpil forum and got feedback from Virpil.
Perhaps the solution is a help for others with similar problems:

X Rebirth seems to detect input devices / joysticks only, when there is a X and Y axes.
So i renamed in the VPC config tool the throttle slider axes rX und rY to X and Y and Rebirth now detects the VPC throttle.
To avoid possible interferences with other games by renaming these axes i renamed them back and renamed instead the axes 7 and 8 (they are only in the config tool for reserve and no "real" axes) to X and Y. X Rebirth detects the VPC throttle again and i could bind all functions.
