Author Topic: Longbow2 hat switch not working!

posted 08-18-2000 05:09 AM       Edit/Delete Post   Reply With Quote
I have played lb2 for many years and it's still the best one!
I have a Thrustmaster "Topgun" Flightstick with 1 hat switch on. I had no problems when playing in win95 but it seems that after upgrading to win98, the hat switch does not work anymore. No problem with the rest of the youstick, can I do anything to get the hat switch to work again?
I have installed the latest patches to LB2.
Thank in advance!!!
And I dont think that I can programmed the hat switch either!

You need to program it.

My MS PPro also had this issue.

I simply programed it for the view that I wanted. Give that a try.

Thanks very much for the advice, but I dont know if my flightstick is programable (Can you say that?). Can you programe every flightstick and what programmes do I use and how????
Where can I find these programs, I did not get any when I bought the flightstick!
Thanks in advance!

Hello wingman10:

After a little research I think you have a Top Gun Fox 2 Pro. This joystick is programmable, go to and find the ThrustMapper 3.0 software. I don't know if the hat is programmable (I am never use it, I got a awful programming software who came with my F22 Pro), but You have nothing to lose.
