I'm ashamed at having to ask this (I'm a IT manager for god sake!) but I cannot get my x45 to map the darn push to talk in ts! I want to assign the "mouse fire" button (the tiny one on the throttle behind the "mouse stick" - I've assigned the left alt key in ts as the ptt and have tried to use the Saitek programming software to map the "mouse fire" button to the left alt - it does'nt take. I've tried looking through the controls section in il2 to see if there is some assignment I'm missing - no joy. I even uninstalled and reinstalled the Saitek software incase I forgot to load a portion of it. ??? Can I set this in config somehow?

you might try a different key than the alt button. I don't think it's supposed to be used alone. I use F11.

Sorry you are kind of vague, not clear on what you've tried, but this works.

Start profile editor.
File
Open choose "your profile"
Click on the throttle in the picture of the profile editor and then on the button you want to modify/assign.

When the button is highlighted, on the right hand panel right click it and choose "new Key Press"

Assign the key stroke.
then click on the little green check mark to finalize it.

Then File save as... and that should be it.

Ciao!

I've followed those steps Waldo and for some reason ts is not acknowledgeing the key. If I assign left ALT in ts it works just fine. If I try to map left ALT in Saitek and save it shows that is the key assigned - but when I hit the button ts does not indicate an open mic. I'm going to the Saitek forum now http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Ok,

Have you confirmed that in TS PTT button is enabled to the same key command. Failing that go for voice activation it works well with the voice activation setting set up to a natural level for your voice

Sounds stupid but do you know you have to "activate" the profile before the settings start to work?

I continue to be confounded by this stupic little issue. I have created new profiles, saved them, and opened them with all kinds of combination of keys and macros. I've tried different key assignemnts for the ptt and can get everything else to work but that! ughh...

I use LCTRL.. in fact I use that black button for SHIFT,CTRL & ALT in modes 1,2 & 3. Woprks great and expands my keystrokes quite a bit.

Once you have assigned your button in the joystick profile, you still need to assign it in TeamSpeak.

First, open TS

Click Settings then Sound Input/Output Settings

Tick the Push to Talk

Then click the Set box, assign your key and you should be good to go.

I use the Scroll Lock key and it works just fine. I think you may run into trouble with the Alt key. Meanig inadvertent control inputs. The Alt key is used in combination with a lot of other keys for this purpose. So, you may end up hitting combos and not realizing it.

Hope this helps,

Hi p-11.cAce

Keep your cool http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif most of these things have something obvious but only when you find out what it is http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Freelancer-1 has a point about the alt key use I have enabled the F10 button to do this but there are 2 settings in TS toggle on/off and full ptt to hold down

But to confirm the basics

What key is allocated to TS activation in

a) your X45 profile
b) TS toggle
c) TS ptt hold down
d) do these clash with any IL2 keys you have configured

Sorry if you have covered this just trying to debug over a forum

Also does the X45 button work for other functions eg flaps down If not then maybe a duff switch on the X45

Cheers
