View Full Version : My best X-4 tip so far involves an X-45 Joystick (or similar)

On the throttle of the X-45 is the minimouse button. I use that to guide the X-4. Here is how.

The X-4 is guided by the bombsight keys.
For my keyboard setup I have the bomb site setup as follows. (All these keys are on the numpad.) 7=UP 1=DOWN 4=LEFT and 6=RIGHT.

Now using the Saitek profiling software I have made the MINIMOUSE do those key presses. Starting with this on the Profiling software.

NOTE; On my profile I have first selected MODE 3, then selected the mouse cursor button (on the X-45 throttle unit), then right clicked on the button to tell it to function as a 4 position button. Then you just apply the key presses to it and your ready for some killin'!

So far it is the best method I have found.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I did it like this on my Saitek EVO:

When Shift is pressed, trigger fires the rocket and hat switches from mouse emulation to gunsight controls for guiding the missiles. I'm having loads of fun with them.

Hint: 2 of those can sink torpedo boats =)

Anyone notice the folder lables "NOT shemale vids guys" lol
waldo yer a riot.

I did basically the same thing only inside il-2 i don't even use the x-45 softwear. and the x-45 stick is only hooked up so i can use the throttle w/ my Wingman ffb.

Going to make bomding a royle b*tch, but for now i'll just use that for the x-4's.
but i may change it around and try to hat track with the throttle.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
