Gaming key board advice needed

Recommended Posts

HiI have the PMDG 747 and was thinking of buying the Logitech G15 Gamingkey board-the normal key board does not have enough bottons toassign.Could you please tell me if anyone uses this board and if you can assign the extra buttons to the PMDG assignment options.I am interested in using the lefthand buttons for the speed,heading and altitude settings.Or could you recommend another gamingboard.I have radar contact4 and fs2crew PMDG.Looking forward to your advice.Qas

As long as the extra buttons on the keyboard are programmable to other keystrokes, then yes it will work. What you'd have to do is set whatever functions you want to use to specific keystrokes in the PMDG menu, then map those keystrokes to the keyboard's buttons using its software. We do not natively support the G15 like some games do...

Hi Qas,I have the G15 keyboard and use it with great pleasure, it works fine with FS and PMDG. In fact, you have 54 extra buttons to program. It works just like Ryan said : map the functions to a specific key combination in FS or PMDG, then map this key combination to one of the 54 extra buttons via the program software, witch is very straidforward.One very negative point (for me) is that it has a "qwerty"-keyboard and where i live we have "azerty". So that makes that i use this keyboard only for FS, and a second keyboard for "work" ...


Regards,

William Vrielynck
