TDC control binding blocks and Flare Dispenser are muted.

So I've found the controls to slew the TDC and I am trying to bind them to my Warthog HOTAS, however, the boxes are "Grey" and the TDC will not slew in flight. Only the UP control works. My Flare dispenser seems to have quit working and that bloc is muted as well. Thanks for reading.

 

 

Cheers.

Yes sir. I'm using the "Throttle Designate Control" (whatever that means) and the master arm is on. They are the only Grey boxes in the setup menu. In flight, my system does not recognize the inputs. Thanks for the reply tho.

Your .diff.lua files may be incompatible with the current version. Try temporarily deleting (moving from folder) them in the saved games directory, input, joystick & keyboard to see if the controls are reset without gray boxes.

Are you looking at the ones on Axis Commands (mouse)? If so you cannot designate it.

 

On the All page, there are some more bindings that will work with the warthog nipple. I had exactly the same yesterday.

 

Also double check that some random control has not changed since the last update and that when you need to use the dispenser, the dispenser switch is still in middle position, the countermeasures system is armed and the correct mode you want to use is selected. Might be you are enabling it all and something else is switching it back off.

As for radar Tdc slew, do you still have the diamond in the top right corner of the DDI?

WOW! That worked!!! This community is awesome!!! Thanks SO much for your help. I am not a programmer and I am TERRIFIED of messing with the files and stuff so I dare not tinker with them if I don't know what I'm doing.

 

I opened the program this morning, the boxes in the "ALL" menu were still muted, I closed the program, opened the INPUTS folder under HORNET, and dragged the KEYBOARD file onto my desktop then re-started the game...and BAM! The muted boxes were gone! (Some other boxes were had the same muted condition, but I don't use them.) I flew my F18 A2A training mission and I can now slew my TDC and lock targets as advertised.

 

Side Note: When I Alt + Tab to check the INPUTS folder, the KEYBOARD file had been "magically" replaced. That was SIERRA HOTEL advice Frederf!!! Kick ass!!!
