Hi!

I am a total newbie in this game and I would need a little
assistance.
Ive got the CH HOTAS. (Fighterstick, throttle and pedals)
The problem is... I dont have any good idea of how to use
it the best way there is.
Can someone share with me his or her CH HOTAS profile?
I would appreciate it a lot!

:-)

Check out this website: http://chmaps-spidey.freeservers.com/maps.html

There's some great information and a IL-2FB map for you.

I don't have the pedals but I think I can help you with the others.

Have you loaded the CH Control Manager?
If not, then you must load it and then you can program the buttons/hats.
When you have programmed them you must save the file and then you press the "download" button from the CH Control Manager menu and this way you activate the new mapping.
You must load/activate it each time you boot your PC. You can also do this automatically if you use a small program that is given in the http://chproducts.com official product site (though I don't use it).

For anything else, I'll be glad to help.

Tnx, but I know how to use the programming interface. Its just that Im a bit lazy to find out what is the best configuration for FB. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I use my CH HOTAS just for Aces High at the moment but will try
this game out.

Seems like "Spidey" could do with a little less plagirism. His site is nothing more than a complete ripoff of

http://home.fuse.net/mmz/index.htm written by Mark Zaw. Mark's page is actually referenced linked right off o the chproducts.com tech support page and is the real author of those maps. Spidey should have at least given credit where it was due. He even took the same gifs too....what a putz.

Of course there is also the possibility that Spidey is in fact Mark. And that CH hasn't updated their site with my new link.

I do this stuff on my own with my own time and I get called a Putz. Great stuff.

Hello,

Got the CH Thottle and Pedals but not the stick. I'll share if you ask. Good luck Sir!

I have a similar setup to yours, and I've mapped out a six axis, 32 button profile that assigns the throttle hat as my POV, and the stick hat as the last four of my 30 asigned buttons. I use the four way hat on the stick for cycling my views(F1, Shift F1, Ctl D, Ctl F1), reassigned the pinky button to button 5 (Toggle Radiator), Button 5 to Button 4, and assigned the lower 4-way hat on the throttle to Field of View size plus looking straight up, and the upper 4-way hat to forward & back upper views(upper left fwd, upper right fwd, upper left back, & upper right back). The front 4-way hat and the handle buttons are used for engine management. I assigned the throttle quadrant on the stick to flaps, and one of the toe sliders to brakes. I use the stick hat for elevator and rudder trim settings.

As long as I don't use the Complex Engine Management and I don't have TrackIR or Newview, I find the most important skill to develop is keeping an eye on the target AND my instrument panel. This kind of setup helps me do that.
