TM Hotas Cougar profile for DCS C-101EB, version 1.0
Profile tested with DCS World 1.5; driver Thrustmaster 2007_HCO_Vista_64_RC1; Foxy 4.2. Instructions for installing these softwares are here: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=181049
After downloading the Profile into the Cougar memory, make sure that on the Cougar Control Panel the mode "Button & Axis emulation" is ON (green).
Where to put the Files:
Put the four files of this Profile, on the folder Program Files (x86)\HOTAS\Files.
This Profile is designed to be used with TrackIR. It has no buttons setup for view control.
Since I dont have Rudder pedals, I've designed this profile so that the ANT rotary can be assigned as Rudder, since it's easy to control using your thumb. Assign the Axis on Option-Controls within DCS.
Special Functions of this Profile:
1) The "Dog Fight" button is used as a cabin selector: "UP" = Aft cockpit; "DOWN" = Forward cockpit.
2) The Throttle is divided on three "zones":
0-15% : Engines Off
15-22% : Engines at Iddle
22-100% : Engines on normal range.
Put the Throttle on the Idle zone and press the S3 button to move the plane´s throttle from zero to idle. Press it again to return the plane's throttle back to zero.
On my Cougar, the Iddle range goes from 15 to 22% ... it's possible that you may need to adjust these values to cater for your own Cougars. Use the app ThrottleRange.exe located on the folder of the HOTAS software, this will perform a brief calibration to determine the % at iddle and also the % at afterburner ... not used on this Profile since the C101 doesnt have an afterburner.
3) Press simultaneously the buttons TG2, S3 and S4 of the Joystick, during half a second, to initiate the Eject sequence.
4) The "Speed Brake" button on the Throttle, has dual function:
4.1 Pull back, to extend the Flaps to its next position
4.2 Pull back while pressing S3, to retract the Flaps to its previous position.
4.3 Push forward, to extend the airbrakes, the button holds that position. Returning the lever to the central position retracts the airbrakes.
5) The throtle's Microstick is used to move the Mouse.
6) The RNG rotary is used as a View Zoom Control rather than a Zoom Axis. Pressing down on the rotary, resets the Zoom to normal.
