So, now that DFM is out, I'm trying to get a working, worthwhile profile going for my TM Cougar. ATM, mouse has a huge advantage with gimbal'd weaponry.

Now, I'm a complete noob to programming these things, so, how would one
1. Set buttons up to emulate the KB buttons?
2. Set the microstick up to emulate mouse for gimbal aiming?

As much as I would love to dig into the many manuals out there and learn everything there is to know, I'm going through RL AF pilot training, and simply dont have time lol

Is there a pretty simple, straight forward way to do those two things? I figure if I can get those set up, I can worry about axis perfection at a later time (unless it must be done simultaneously).

Running CCP 3.01 and Foxy 4.2 beta

EDIT: I actually just ran through the wizards... that made it pretty dang easy. Now all I have to do is test it

Update:
I've successfully made a profile for my Cougar to emulate everything, including mouse on the microstick. Though mouse on microstick still isn't nearly as good as mouse frown

You can download them here:

This is my first attempt ever at programming my Cougar and using Foxy, I'll likely still be tweaking it for a while

I'd suggest starting out with XML file editing so you're using native DirectInput controls, particularly the axes.

You might still need keyboard emulation for some things, such as Ctrl-KP8/2/4/6/5 for shield redistribution and the arrow keys and Enter for HUD management. Still trying to figure this out myself.

I'll give that a shot, just to see how it compares smile I've since gotten my foxy profile working quite well, aside from still being unable to swap my MIX and MIY.

Here's my thread at RSI, I don't have the very latest profile updated on google docs yet, but will probably get it up there tonight
