Mapping a Joystick button for PTT (Networked)

Recommended Posts

Okay, so my goal has been to run as much of my "accessories" on a networked computer, leaving my FSX computer "clean" for better performance. I finally waded through the SimConnect process and got vPilot working on a networked computer. My only concern now is how to map my joystick trigger for use as the PTT button.

 

Is it possible?

 

When I try to [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ign a PTT button/key, it will not recognize anything other than my networked NON-FSX computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Fly Safe! Have Fun!

G'day Craig,

 

If you haven't already done so, you will need to also install vPilot on the FSX computer. Once installed you run the program "Traffic Proxy". With Traffic Proxy running press CTRL+S which will allow you to choose a PTT key/button which will work over the network. Traffic Proxy will need to be running on the FSX computer whenever you run vPilot over a network. This also helps with traffic smoothness issues.
