I thought I would post the bottom half of the text files WOFFKeys.xca and WOTRKeys.xca for both WOTR, which I made them to be identical.
In other words, I copied these exact lines (the bottom half of the former file) and used it to replace the bottom half of the latter file.

I did this for the first boot up of WOTR (I already had WOFF UE working properly).
And then my TM HOTAS setup worked fine.
My 3 Controllers are TM Warthog throttle, TM Warthog stick, CH Pro Pedals rudder.
All axis on these controllers work perfectly (these sims do not use toebrakes, so of course those do not work).
Both POV hats (one on the throttle, one on the stick) work fine.
And you can then program the controller buttons as you choose inside the sims' Workshop page.

Notice on the CH pedals section, it has a line near the top for "Throttle Action", but the rudder pedals are referenced "Yaw Control (Rudder)" instead of a 'Throttle'.
This is proper and correct.

Thanks Crow I am sure it will help others.

It may be seen better if I move it to the FAQ section.or you can copy and post it there too.

Cheers

I have found another issue with WOTR controller setup (i.e. the remap keys and controller screen in Workshop), the problem is if you have 2 controllers that are the same make and model.
(For instance I plugged in 2 CH Quads because they each have 12 handy buttons all in a row).
In WOTR controller setup you will see 2 of CH THROTTLE QUADRANT in the Select Controller drop down menu, just like you would expect.
But if you make any changes to axis or buttons in BOTH throttle quad sections, then WOTR will only make the changes for ONE of them, not both of them.
In other words if you for instance unbind the X Roll axis in BOTH CH Throttle Quadrant sections, it will actually only unbind in ONE of the two quad sections in the WOTRKeys.xca file.
The axis will still be bound in that other controller, even though you did unbind it in the Workshop.

So, you have to do the editing of buttons or axis for the second (Identically named) controller by manually editing the WOTRKeys.xca file.
You cannot make any changes to it in the Workshop!

This problem only occurs where two controllers are identically named in the Workshop dropdown list of controllers, if you have two or more throttles that are different models, then this problem does not occur.

Thanks, to be fair that is a pretty rare situation but thanks for reporting that one.Obviously the name being the same can be a problem.
At least there's a manual way to edit it.

Yes, probably rare, might be more common when multi-engine planes are available.
I have dual Saitek/MadCatz/ Logitech throttle Quadrants.
Both have the same name in the Game Controller panel.
Both with same name show up in WOTR Keys.
But I have only one Section in the .xca file.
I tried manually adding another and WOTR continues to use only the first one.
Resulting in BOTH Quadrants working identically in WOTR.

I have updated to the latest 64 bit drivers I could find - did not change anything.
