Any chance we might ever see full multiperipheral HOTAS support? Would love to use my pedals. I love all the new updates, and the cockpits are amazing! Keep up this amazing work guys!

Unfortunately I don't think so.

That said, rudder pedals are supported, you just need the pedals to be the fourth axle (some kit such as the Thrustmaster FCS use a manager to configure it on a per-game basis, it can do that)

I've had a blast these past few months using a combination of "ultimate joystick remapper" (even though it's old) and "antimicro". I can't quite recall why I needed both, because nowadays I have it set to start both automatically before the game and I don't even have to think about it. Seems to work no matter which USB ports I use, which is a bonus!

I'm using a thrustmaster throttle and a KBsim flight stick, and it's made the handling so much less unwieldy than my xbox controller..!

HOTAS for me works with vJoy and Joystick Gremlin, just mixed some things together and it's been treating me extremely well!

Now if only I could beat the first mission without knocking it down to easy...

Which mission do you mean? The first training mission?

So I have all the axis mapped out, but I cannot map any of the buttons to the actual stick. I have a Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS with pedals and the config tool always puts the buttons on the throttle. Changing the preferred device does not change anything. What am I doing wrong?

Okay, had to get a profile set up with Target, which apparently I am bad at....
