Hat switch settings - Someone please share!

Recommended Posts

Hello Team!After much tinkering, I still can't get my hat switch to operate as it should. I can get the forward, back, left, and right views programmed but I have not been able to program the quarter views yet. I'd like to respectfully request that if there's a good soul out there that has been succesful at programming their hat switch to operate as it should, please share your assignments/settings.Thanks a million!Dennis D. Mullert


Sincerely,

Dennis D. Müllert

In 3D command view you can simply pan around in the 3D cockpit: Set hat switch to " (fast) rotate up /down" and "(fast) pan left / right". If you set up another button to 3D command view you can return to forward view quickly.Try that.

I am following the steps but find X-Plane is not remembering left vs right hatswitch setting - its very odd and could be a bug. I set fast up / down in Buttons Advanced ... General ... but in 3D command the hat switch is messed up - go back into settings and right is assigned to Left ... !

It caught me off guard at first but you need to press the button (on your joystick) you want to assign, then click the associated radio button (ie click the command).What you might be doing is clicking the function then clicking the button on your joystick. It will be bassackwards... lol I still think it's more intuitive to select the function you want to assign, then click the joystick button to complete the assignment, but hey.

It´s also necessary that you HOLD the joystick-button while you assign a command to it.Afterwards you can check the assignment by pressing the button: The selected command should be highlighted / flash then.Takes a while to get into this and imho it´s not the smartest way for button assignment - but usually it works.Don´t give in!

No its not, the last button to be pressed AND released is the button that with have the function assigned to it.The biggest oversight in XP10 even after all these versions is that you cannot assign a different command to the release of the button. I have panels with lots of latching switches on them and you need to be able to assign one command when the switch is pressed (example gear up) and another when the switch is released (example gear down) to make them even remotely useful, otherwise you have to turn the switch on and off twice to a toggle function.

Cheers, Andy.
