  1. I did try that first - perhaps I did it wrong, as my physical throttle detent does not match the in game position, see above. I set AB to come on when the detent is reached. Will check later
  2. OK< thanks, I have run out of time to do this as now wont be back at my sim PC until next week, as going away for a small trip.......will see how I get on then. Thanks for the advice.
  3. Redkites guide is very useful, however, I am not seeing what he sees ....for example, ataround 2.15 into his guide, when he has moved his throttle to the physical detent position, in my options screen, when I do that, both squares move down to bottom left most point of the graph, whereas in his, they move to the right of the line approx another 10% ..... see screen grab I have this before, which is as he shows: And this is where my throttle is at max mil power: I place the throttle to the detent and this happens: So what’s going on there?

  4. HI, I am trying to set up my new winwing throttle and am having trouble figuring out when exactly in the sim, the AB kicks in....given there are several indications, these being the visual condition of teh engine , nozzle position, fuel flow and RPM percentage..... I would expect that to get it working " Properly" we need a way to get it to match the in jet RPM percentage and nozzle positions? Does anyone know what the "correct" figures are for nozzle position, fuel flow and RPM percentage when AB kicks in ? And does the sim accurately portray this? From looking at in the sim, my current max throttle opening shows nozzle position 45, fuel flow of 68,000 lbs and RPM percentage of 102%. My other question is how can know when AB kicks in from looking visually? Of course, you get the cone effect, but looking directly into the engine, there is certainly a period of time before this happens when the engine is bright red inside. This happens at Nozzle 10%, fuel 18,000 and RPM 102%. Is this the true start of AB? Obviously, I cant set it correctly unless I know when AB is kicking in in the sim...... The other way to judge would be maybe to look at where DCS have marked AB in the controls position indicator widget? If I use this, fule flow is approx 12,000, nozzles zero & RPM 102%. ( It never seems to go beyond 102% though....) So which is the correct way? Thanks
  5. Hey Max, can you give some pointers? I tried but its not working.....So, with the values reset, and with user curve and slider options ticked, idle is at the bottom left of the slope and the AB detent is at the top right. Pushing the throttle past the detent has no further effect on the black and red squares as they are at the limit of the window - does this mean that with the Viper, pushing past the detent into the last 20% range of travel is purely cosmetic and has no effect in the sim? I would expect that to get it working " Properly" we need a way to get it to match the in jet RPM percentage and nozzle positions?

I am going to ask the above in the Viper section as well...... EDIT: Meantime, I have tried again using the controls indicator red line as the point. Both times, I get a value of 50, which gives me a set of values I have inputted. However, the physical point at which my throttle "should" reach AB is still miles away from the physical stop on the winwing frame.....I maybe missing something here, but unless you can adjust the point in the sim at which it judges AB to start ( like you can in BMS) how can this be adjusted?
  6. Here is my solution, works great Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Anyone got a method to do this? Currently, the jet goes into AB when my throttle is at about 75% of travel inside the normal range.....I have tried Mustangs guide but it plainly does not apply to this grip rather the older F-18 throttle Thanks!
  8. Its finally arrived, and I have it installed.....the throttle is great, but there were missing nuts etc to assemble the frame.....when I did, it was too wobbly and I did not like it, so made a wooden frame which is much stiffer and also doubles up as a base which it needs to switch out of the mount for the F-18 throttle on my chair:
  9. Perfect, thanks Zildac! Where does the .lua file go?
  10. Can you be a bit more specific please? I cant see any options or drop downs or choices in anything in the ME that has to do with triggers?
  11. Sorry, I have looked but cant find how to load the script within the mission editor? It has to be loaded manually into every mission you want the new effects in, is that correct?
