LINDA is the best - a "MUST HAVE" for FSX!

9 posts in this topic

Hats Off to Linda!The finest add on since FSUIPC! If you have a set of controllers with mulitple buttons (Joysticks, Throttles, Etc) you want to TRY OUT LINDA!It's the best! Why? Simple to set up and use, easy to debug (if needed) and GREAT online support!My Thrustmaster Hotas is 2x as good because LINDA offers Assignable SHIFT controls, local and entire device. So I can "Shift" the buttons just on my Throttle and the ones on the Joystick are left undisturbed. Thus the 22 buttons on the throttle become 44.In my case I use the shifted throttle buttons to kill Engines 1 and 2 on my 737NGX. Thus I cannot 'accidentally' kill an engine while in flight!It's great to be able to assign toggle switches to put the HUGS up and down, and I use the grey slide lever on the right side of throttle plate to control the PMDG Flaps - works a treat. Other buttons allow quick set of CRSE, ALT and HEADING. Landing Lights (Main) Landing Lights (Taxi) Landing Lights (Runway Turnoff) are all on separate switches on the throttle console. Parking brake, Altimeter reset, Spoilers, and so on.What does this mean to you?The TM HOTAS Warthog can provide a level of immersion that is several notches above the plain vanilla controllers on the market, and at a lot lower price point than the upper-end hardware from PFC and GoFlight.I highly recommend you try LINDA. I am going to donate to them!

HI, great info, I saw in another topic your tips how to set up TM Warthog with FSX using FSUIPC and Linda, I did most of it but i still have problem with two things: 1. Switches with 3 state and How to config in FSUIPC the hotas throttle reverse in FSX its a key press, also how to config the afterburner stage.

Is this for the 777?

Simplest way would be to assign keystroke F2 (reverse thrust) with "repeat while held" checked to one of the Warthog's throttle lift up extreme rear position switches (best to have the two throttles physically linked together). Assign F1 (idle thrust) to the same switch for "on release".

 

You need to somehow use the "on release" option in FSUICP to get those Warthog 3 position/2 switch switches to do three things.
