Title: VRInsight Console and Bridge Command 5.x on Windows
Post by: forum_admin on January 10, 2020, 09:58:07 PM
Hi, I'm aware various people have been having problems with the VRInsight console and Bridge Command 5.x. Irrlicht (the game engine used) was only checking the first 6 joystick axes on windows. I've changed this and recompiled the Irrlicht dll.

I think that I have a fix for this problem, and I'd appreciate any testing.

Instructions:

Download the updated Irrlicht.dll from https://github.com/bridgecommand/bc/raw/53ce73607349fea17b0a2e60a2563a62923a04d3/Irrlicht.dll and replace the Irrlicht.dll in your installation.

Use the settings editor to make the following settings

port_throttle_channel=3
stbd_throttle_channel=2
rudder_channel=1

Any feedback if this is working would be much appreciated.

Hi,
I am not a user of bridgecommand yet.
In case I download bridgecommand and buy the console for a more realistic control, would there still be these issues to sort out?
Is there any other ship console that works better?
Thanks
Sven

I haven't heard of any issues with the VRInsight console after this fix.

I'm not aware of anyone else making another equivalent console, but it's relatively simple if you want to set up your own: https://www.bridgecommand.co.uk/Doc/makethrottle.php

Just as an update, this is now included in main Bridge Command release, so you don't need to download the updated dll.

Based on reports from users, one of the following settings should work:

port_throttle_channel=8
stbd_throttle_channel=7
rudder_channel=6

or

port_throttle_channel=3
stbd_throttle_channel=2
rudder_channel=1

Ship console users - please let me know what works for you!
