TM Cougar HOTAS problems

Recommended Posts

Cross posted from the hardware forum ('cause it's probably a software problem :-hah ) Also posted on the Cougar's World forums. Someone's gotta have a clue!!Ahhhh ... nothin' like a new toy to keep you busy Just picked up a Thrustmaster Cougar HOTAS stick. Very cool. Lotsa buttons, lotsa hats, 2-stage trigger, micro-stick ... yeah baby!!However ...I've configured FS2002 to use the throttle's Z-axis for "Throttle", XR-axis for "Prop Control" and S1-axis for "Mixture Control". FS2002 recognizes the axes, but can't get the controls to thier highest and lowest settings (F4 and F1 equivilent) using the throttle's controls. All engine controls seem to top out around 85% and bottom out around 15%. In the C182S max throttle gives me 23" and idle gives me 1200 RPM.The calibration utility shows full range on all axes. Using a standalone DX8 analyzer shows full range on all axes. Throttle works fine with Falcon 4.0 SP3 and IL2 (my other sims).I was looking at FS2002's devices.cfg in case the generic stick's settings are wrong ... but haven't got a clue as to what I'm looking at there Any help appreciated!!!
