Drivers for Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog

Recommended Posts

So I was finally excited when my wife let me buy the 500$ joystick HOTA rig and to my surprise Thrustmaster.com has been down since the 17th.   Does anyone have the drivers for the joystick that can put up for download?   You would make my day!!   I have profiles for X plane, MS SIM and IR2 but profiles don't do me much good with windows 10 64 default drivers for them :(   

 

Thank you so much in advance!!!

I  would suggest either checking with the P3D forums or whatever sim you use. Or check in the Hardware Forums. The Library does not have drivers within the downloadable files.

I don't use that software at all , just map the buttons like you would with any other joystick. The software "combined" device is a hassle and will screw you up especially in DCS. Also X-Plane and P3D will recognise the controllers already. No need for an extra layer of software really , even if you have a profile you will still have to change settings in the sim.

Thanks so much for posting this!  I just ordered a TM Warthog HOTAS today (to replace my tired Saitek X53) and I was getting concerned about not being able to get the drivers I needed,

I was a day 1 purchase of the HOTAS, it's an excellent set of hardware and can stand up to daily use for years and years. You won't regret it. The TARGET software is good for games that don't for instance support more than 1 controller or have fixed controls where you need to assign a specific keypress. Most games nowadays adhere to windows standards and are fully configurable within the game itself, but not all.

IMO if the game devs are too lazy to properly implement good controller support I probably won't be playing it long. 

 

OP if you really want it then here is the TARGET

I've  had my HOTAS since 2011 and used target only a few times, warning I don't recommend it as it installs a completely different set of drivers then you are forced to make a profile AND setup to match that profile within the game...big waste of time.
