I am using the VRinsight ship console, but I can't obtain functionality with Bridge Command.
After much trial & error, and editing the %appdata%/Bridge Command/5.0/bc5.ini, I can access the rudder control but not the throttles (still only activated by the keyboard). The Win 10 64 bit OS can see & calibrate the console, but not Bridge Command.

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Hi, Mr. Packer has a nice little tool for Joystick inputs to edit the INI file for VR Insight console. I have it on a Facebook page in the download section. If you email him he can probably send it to you or you can download it from Ship Simulation in a Sea Cadet Environment Facebook Page.

I had the same problem. rudder control is ok, but throttles have no response in bridge command.

The JoystickState.exe is useful to detect the channel number for rudder control(6), left throttle ( 8 ) and right throttle(7). In addition, the INI file has been configured according the channel number.

Do you solve this problem?

Thank you!

Note: Edited by forum_admin as the ( 8 ) was converted into (8).

Just as an update, the problems with the Ship Console should be fixed since version 5.4.3.

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