Thank you for your response Rudel. I found the TSH Manager and tried to use it. After figuring out how to make it accept changes (I had to change the settings in permissions to allow full control of files), I'm still not sure how to force my Z axis to be disabled, while setting throttle to keyboard control.
Is there a "TSH Manager tutorial" anywhere? In the "Controller Settings" tab at the top of the tool, I see an option for throttle and rudder settings. My options in the throttle pulldown is "use" none, Z2, or Z3. I tried all 3 and my Z axis is still primary and keyboard controls still have no effect.
Actually, setting it to use Z2 instead of Z1 disabled the z-axis throttle control, but the engines were going up and down on their own. And I did not have any way to control throttle on my keyboard.
Using Z3 instead of Z1 disabled z-axis as well, but the keyboard controls still didn't work. In fact there seemed to be no way to control throttle settings using this option as well.
In the F18addon.ini, I tried to manually adjust the "REPLACE_Z1=00" to other parameters. This didn't work either. I hate to sound stupid, but I have to admit, I have no idea how to use this tool. Do I need to do something in the "Other Axes" block or the "TDC Axes" block? Nothing I do here seems to make much difference. Do I use Z3 in the "throttle and rudder settings" and go somewhere else to set the proper keyboard throttle setting key commands? If so, how do I do that?
Again, I apologize for all the questions, but I do appreciate any help offered. Regards.
