I'm having some problems with my Warthog. i can't for the life of me figure out how to get the buttons and switches on the throttle's base to do anything. The buttons on the joystick and throttle itself work fine but none of the base switches work.
Trying to find a good tutorial on how to set this up for star citizen is like fininding a needle in a haystack, some videos are years old or just tell you to download someone's keybindings and then everything magically works. but I tried that and it doesn't. I've been trying to figure out the TARGET software but.. well, it's poop.
if anyone can give me some advice I'd really appreciate it!
I'm not exactly sure where to post this because its about hardware but the problem is more likely with software.
If it's wrong, mods feel free to move it;)
I just bought a Thrustmaster Warthog Hotas (yeah, I know.. I couldn't resist. so.. shiny..) and I'm having some problems getting it to function the way I want it to. My issue right now is that it doesn't pick up the throttle at all. I can move that thing up and down and nothing happens.
The lights are on and all the buttons are functioning but the throttle does nothing. I've tried following several setup guides (like Clifford aka Miku's on youtube (though its a few years old)), tried loading different profiles (like Solarfly's) and still nothing. Ive messed around with the settings in Star Citizen for a few hours but it still. wont. work.
I know nothing about computers but would like to play star citizen. My current PC is on it's last legs so I'm due for an upgrade anyways, though I'd like to avoid spending an absurd amount if possible. Where do I start?
Let me reemphasize: I know NOTHING about computers. Like zero aside from basic everyday use. So dumb it down please. Like you're talking to your grandma. Thanks.
