Hot on the heels of the TAW 2.30 final release, I've released my Total Air War TARGET profile v2.0 (Box.com). This profile integrates either the HOTAS Cougar or the HOTAS Warthog with the Cougar MFDs, though you can use this profile without the MFDs and still get over 90% of the functionality. Note: Version 2.0 of this profile is also included with TAW 2.30. Features of this profile include: Compatibility with both the Cougar and Warthog Context sensitive command mapping to switches emulate discrete settings as much as possible. CommState routine allows for the selection of 1 through 8 with Hats 2 and 3 while the COMM switch is pressed. More precisely-mapped throttle allows linear function on both sides of afterburner detent, with throttle frozen at “MIL” while within limits of the afterburner detent. Autopilot routine that can be discretely engaged or disengaged from any mode. LED indications for autopilot, airbrake, landing gear, Bomb Bay Doors, CommSwitch, and Teamspeak3 PTT. Compatible with VAC. HAT1 can be POV or Trim, but always slews LANTIRN when zoomed into a MFD. HOTAS mappings set to match F-16C and MFDs to in-game F-22 as closely as possible. Intelligent EMCON and Radio functions allow flexibility and logic with cycling and discretely selecting options. Refueling mode that dampens controller response for operations close to the tanker. Optional differential braking even without toe brakes on your rudder pedals. The control mappings differ from the Foxy profile to some extent, but this is because I no longer have to shoehorn every function onto a hat switch. The use of context sensitive switches, TEMPO commands, and the MFDs mean that I can make a more logical layout and actually increase the functionality of the profile. Here is the HOTAS Cougar layout: Here is the Warthog layout: Finally, the MFD inserts: Obviously, I have many more MFD buttons I can use, and since I've utilized all default positions for which there is a hotkey, I'm open to suggestions on how to fill the rest of the space. Future development plans include the ability to use the Cougar MFD controller for the individual buttons while zoomed into a display. This is doable in TARGET, but currently doesn't work well with upconverted display resolutions (e.g. 800x600 expanded to 1920x1080 via Glide wrapper). I look forward to your feedback; any information that will help me improve this profile is greatly appreciated.
Hot on the heels of my Total Air War profile, and inspired by Magic Mikew's recent EF2000 renaissance, I have put together a beta TARGET profile which is now included in EF2000 Reloaded. While the profile can be used with the HOTAS alone, use of the MFDs are recommended, because the MFDs allow for discrete states of the radar, allow MFD functionality from the cockpit mode for buttons with hotkey assignments, and now allows use of the MFD buttons to press any MFD button while zoomed in! Features of this profile include: Fully funtional MFDs when zoomed in, and partially functional MFDs while in cockpit view. Context sensitive command mapping to switches emulate discrete settings as much as possible. CommState routine allows for the selection of 1 through 8 with Hats 2 and 3 while the COMM switch is pressed. More precisely-mapped throttle allows linear function below afterburner detent, with throttle frozen at “MIL” while within limits of the afterburner detent. Afterburner is engaged above the AB detent, and disengaged halfway between the AB detent boundaries. Autopilot routine that can be discretely engaged or disengaged from any mode, with context sensitive S1 employment based on the current autopilot mode. LED indications for autopilot, autothrottle, airbrake, landing gear, refueling mode, CommSwitch, and Teamspeak3 PTT. Compatible with VAC. HAT1 can be POV or Trim, but always slews TIALD when zoomed into MFD2. HOTAS mappings set to thematically match F-16C and MFDs to in-game EF2000 as closely as possible. Intelligent Radar functions allow flexibility and logic with cycling and discretely selecting options. Refueling mode dampens controller respopnse for operations around the tanker. Optional differential braking even without toe brakes on your rudder pedals. As with the TAW profile, the toe brake features have yet to be implemented. Here is the graphic layout of the HOTAS controller: And the MFDs: I look forward to your feedback. Any input to improve the profile is greatly appreciated.
EDIT: This file has been superseded by a TARGET script with similar functionality and additional features. All development on this Foxy profile is suspended. I have just uploaded my Flaming Cliffs 3 Cougar profile to my Mediafire site. It is now available for download. http://www.mediafire...zbzm2ipxkhhenob Even though it is v2.0, this is the first public release, and the first version polished enough to use the same profile for all FC3 jets, even with differing functionality. Included in this profile are: Special optional cannon logic for Russian fighters Throttle logic, including user-defined curves and engine start/stop with idle detent (don't worry, there are safeguards against inadvertent engine shutdown) Integration with Cougar MFDs Here are the graphics of the HOTAS and MFD profiles respectively. This is a limited distribution at this point because I would like to get your feedback. I haven't fully tested the functionality in the Su-25, nor have I tested the profiles as they pertain to each aircraft to a great extent. I'm relying on you guys to provide me with constructive criticism on how I can improve the profile before distribution to a wider audience. Please provide your feedback in this thread. Also, be sure to read the readme file. Its content is critical to getting the profile working.
