...but it's really difficult for me to pick up the right codes to send. I'm just not a gamer and I'm only doing this to blow off steam, but my wrists don't allow me to use the keyboard as this game is designed.
One of the first tricks is to get xpadder, which I found more accurate than the normal X52 profile editor. Some codes expect the throttle to be in a certain position before they will work, and most buttons don't register at all.
I would have thought that sending keyboard commands would be a lot easier.
