Controls Wont Stay Mapped

This one had bugged me for years about this series. How come when you program your controls using the in game editor, they always reset. How can I stop this?

Hmmm never had this happen to me.

 

On win7 by default all key commands are stored here: C:\Users\<your login name>\Saved Games\DCS\Config\Input

 

So even if you uninstall & reinstall your key commands are unaffected.

 

Do you have an irregular PC setup that might affect this folder location?

Ah I have installed my sim to the D drive (my gaming drive) and the saved folder is on the C drive. However I had this happen before when playing LOMAC all ont he same drive. Do you think if I put it all on the same drive I will be ok?

No.. don't think that is your issue.

 

It should not matter where the game is installed. I have DCS on my C drive as its an SSD but i have FC2 on my E drive, and have no issue with it.

What are your procedures when you are mappings yours MT? Do you save it under another name? I will start the sim and my controls are there 90% of the time. Then some of them replicated to the other controls.

Do you mean controller profiles, i.e at the top of each section, (keyboard, joystick, trackir) where you can 'save as' and 'load'.

 

Personally i never use save as and load options.. i simply use the default profile and add or change the keyboard & HOTAS commands, remove the ones i don't want and click OK.

What I do is map them in the game options screen and press OK.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

I do the samething but then go back later and some have changed. Do you save it as a profile? Or just hit ok?

I saved every controller profile (except keyboard, mouse and TIR) to a specific file name. Once that was done I editted the files to remove any controls that I did not map.

 

I have been using the same profiles since v1.1.0.? I import them into every new install with no problems. Note, I use Target to map most of my stick and throttle.

 

EDIT: Before I import anything I clear every controller column (again excluding keyboard, mouse and TIR), both buttons and axis.

I click OK, never had a problem *touch wood* from 3 different sticks.

Win 7 64 bit. I have the UAC off. So that isnt it. Makes me mad because I do IT for a living now (still working for the USAF, I cant seem to get away) and I can not figure this one out.
