  1. Didn't see that. Thanks So, it seems if I set that profile, reload the bootloader with the other profile, and re-set this one, it works and the throttle is configured. Didn't work the first time for some reason, but either way, this did sort it out. Bit confusing though.
  2. Ok, I'm sitting here and taking a look at it again. This is what is happening: I open file titled VPC_JOY_SETUP (vpc configurator) It instructs me to update the firmware I update the firmware successfully I go to "PROFILE" and select the M50 Base. I click "CREATE PROFILE" and the software tells me I cannot make a profile unless I also have a grip. I only have a throttle so this option is not possible. I press "IMPORT PROFILE FROM FILE" "LEGACY" folder I select the file "VPC Throttle_MT50 [PCBv07].cnfv07" I press "SAVE VPC DEVICE" I go to the "BUTTON" tab, and all my buttons are "inverted" and 4 of my buttons are registering as always activated, and button 37 is registering clicks every couple milliseconds If I go back and flash the prevous firmware and VPC configurator, the device works as expected, "out of the box".
  3. I can't try this tonight, but ill take a third look at this tomorrow after work!
  4. There is another gentleman who made a post about this on th eofficial Virpil forums. The new firmware reverses all the buttons and basically breaks stuff. The advice has been that it's because the user did not set the profile. Many users have tried including myself to either import a profile, set it back to factory, or reset it, and nothing fixes it. One guy got it working by manually going through all his buttons and setting them back up again, but this probably wouldn't work for me because my throttle on the new firmware keeps reporting a bunch of different buttons as being activated all the time. I just went back to 190109.
  5. haha, yea, that's my favourite part. Thanks for noticing!
  6. It's been a long while since I've been posting videos. Figured I should post something and luckily had a clip worth sharing. A nice fight between me and two 190s. Luckily for me the second one is dealt with by a friendly La-5. My only regret is my gunnery is rusty as f*ck in this video, he gave me a number of opportunities to kill him earlier but feels good to be flying in IL2 more often again! I've also synced it to Supermarine from the Dunkirk soundtrack, for extra coolness because that's how I roll. Werd up to your mother.
  7. It was just chocolate pudding if it makes you feel better.
  8. You are right to some degree, sure. There's a larger pot of people who simply feel the sim is imperfect (and I do think it's important to think of this as a sim and not a GAME; game implies balance). The problem with that is, and I have always told people this, that if you think the sim/dev team is wrong, it's no use for people to simply complain on a forum. No developer needs or wants to hear that. I mean I have a youtube channel, and sometimes people will comment "this video was awesome". That's nice. But other times people will say "this video sucks". It's like...how does this help me please you? It doesn't help you get better content and it doesn't help me make content you'd prefer to watch. They have to provide examples and sources to the dev team. I believe the reason the FW190 got fixed was because so many community members were dedicated to finding real, credible sources that demonstrated the dev team was wrong. I will also not disagree that a healthy degree of voting with your wallet is necessary. If 777 studios decided to become WarThunder, well people would just go play WarThunder. Jason says he and the team know what requires fixing so I'm going to assume if those kinds of things happen, they may already be working on a fix. If not, I'd suggest posting the video to forums. I'm not criticising people for criticizing the team's work, I'm more suggesting that many people complain unconstructively, and considering 777 is owned by Jason, I imagine he is not beholden to shareholders and has no actual obligation to sit and listen. I have seen other games where the community complains so much all the time the development team literally just stopped caring. MechWarrior Online being a good example.
  9. At least there's re-arm and resupply in real life though amirite?
  10. I think the issue is less that there's civil criticism and more that the criticism is never-ending. One of the hallmarks of the sim community, and what has been certainly evident to me over the 3 or 4 years I've been involved in the community is that there is a vocal group of users who wouldn't be satisfied even if you gave them a real plane, and sent them back to WW2. Furthermore, the dev team either delivers what they say they will, or over-delivers by a wide margin, so why some people in this forum who've been around as long as I have always show constant doubt that they know what they're doing puzzles me. As for the damage model, 80% of the issues I have with damage model are from Wings of Liberty being a potato server, and the other 20% are because the guy was Elanski and can take the wings off a fruitfly with a ford focus.
  11. Thanks for your feedback. I agree, turbo damage would be a good addition.
  12. Ok, I love the flying bathtub as much as the next person, and I'm sure the @Jason_Williams and the gang are busy trying to get the 262 to not explode the physics engine and various other incomplete things, but I humbly suggest that when the team gets some time, a damage system for the TSC be investigated. I say this because A) I was just generally disappointed that there doesn't seem to be any reason to learn to use it properly when the plane was released but also B) cruising through some P47 threads it seems there are a number of people who've found ways of getting artificial performance improvements out of it by doing things the plane's official training videos specifically state not to do (like move the throttle below the TSC, and not move the propellor in step with the throttle, and/or using only the TSC to modify performance at sea level). That is my opinion, and that is all. *Puts on fire-retardant suit*
  13. A defining characteristic of radials is that they suck at altitude without supplemental equipment. What issue are you referring to?
  14. I got it working man, thanks. Interesting technique...definitely increases the utility of the encoders.
  15. Hmmm. I tried to set it up as listed in the manual, and this didn't work for me. Can you post your settings?
