So I have both the pinky switch and the dogfight switch to change modes? I'm afraid to ask, but how many 'buttons' can the Cougar have in all (including all modes)?

Stick:
16 four four-way hats on the stick
2 triggerstages
3 switches (excluding the pinky switch)
__+
21

Throttle:
4 four-way radio switch
2 airbrake switch
1 switch on rangeknob
1 switch on cursorstick
4 if you program the cursorstick as a hat
__+
12 (excluding the mode swicth)

Total:
21
12
__+
33

With two shiftstates and 3 modes that makes 2 * 3 * 33 = 198 'buttons'

And if you get into programming using logical variables you could increase that a bit more.

Owie! How do you remember what all those button does though? Is there some nice graphic that I can print out and write on to help me remember?

I can't download it, the link is broken. Can anyone upload it for me? Or even an image of the button maps... thanks!

Foxy has a button for a graphical layout.

What also helps is make "themed" modes.
For example: Air to air, nav and air to ground.

Apologies. I didn't know the link was broken. PM your email and I'll forward the profile.

Ice you can check other files.

You can download "Lomac Flaming Cliffs 1.12" from Thomas AV8R Spann.
It's a full package.
Just extract files to

Program Files\Foxy\Files folder and start Foxy.Then you will have access to graphical layout.

Thanks guys! I think I have enough info now... next thing to do is to have a few A-10 test flights to see what buttons need to be mapped and where. I'd like to have 'themes' to the buttons themselves as well... like this button being the fire button, this button being the cycle weapons button, etc.

Starting to do my own programming now, coz I figure a profile I create will 'make more sense' than having to 'learn' someone else's profile.

One question - is it possible to map the mouse (and mouse view) to the T1 stick on the throttle? How?

Is there a programming guru here willing to give me a crash course and a few examples?

Thanks!
