Hey all, Im new to the Mig and was trying to map the controls and some of them struck me as odd. Some controls, such as the flap controls are not able to be mapped. The column for my controls is light colored and the options to add on the bottom left are grey'd out. Any thoughts?

I think this is actually a bug at the moment. I have this too. The reason is that the entries are missing in the joystick input file.

 

The file is located here:

E:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\aircraft\MIG-21bis\Input\MiG-21\joystick\default.lua

 

In my file the section is empty but it shouldn't be empty:

The entries are specified in the keyboard section, that is why you see them only assignable for the keyboard:

E:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\aircraft\MIG-21bis\Input\MiG-21\keyboard\default.lua

 

The section looks like this:

These files determine which entries are there and assignable within DCS.

 

A while ago (Februar 2015) the joystick section looked like this:

If you manually add this to the empty section again it will work. But you need to repeat this every update since it got fixed. That's because an update will re-download the input file if you make changes.

Hi,

 

Left : 1.2.16

Right : 1.5

 

I guess in 1.5 they changed it to a "rotary" like the A10-C - but it isn`t working/selectable

F -> down, down, ...

LShift + F -> up, up, ...

 

In 1.12.16 there are three special joystick-entries for the flaps

Preventing this, after edit the file, go back to folder

 

Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\aircraft\MIG-21bis\Input\MiG-21\keyboard\default.lua

 

Select the "default.lua" (already edited) and Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V. Now you have:

 

default.lua

default-copy.lua

 

When came a update - if no changes are done in controls table - just delete the "default.lua" and rename "default-copy.lua" to "default.lua" (and make a new copy for use in future updates). ;)

 

If changes was done in Mig-21 controls* copy the edited part for the new downloaded "defaul.lua", case flaps assignments are't changed.

 

* What is expected, as the actual controls don't please neither the pit'builders (ON-OFF switches), or the Warthog owners (2-3 position switches) or the CH/Saitek HOTAS or "3-in-1" joystick owners (momentarily buttons only). :D

Or just follow Zabuza's instructions above. By the way, the L-39 module currently has the same problem in 1.5.
