Foxy Profile for Thrustmaster HOTAS Cougar for the DCS F/A-18C
Version 2

1.- Software:
Profile tested with DCS World 2.5; driver Thrustmaster 2007_HCO_Vista_64_RC1; Foxy 4.2

2.- Cougar Mode:
After downloading the Profile into the Cougar memory, make sure that on the Cougar Control Panel the mode "Button & Axis emulation" is ON (green).

3.- Where to put the Files:
Put the four files of this Profile, on the folder  Program Files (x86)\HOTAS\Files.

4.- Headtracking
This Profile is designed to be used with a Headtracking device. It has no buttons setup for view control, except for Snapviews.

5.- Communications
The Throttle Hat has been configured for Simple Radio PTT, Discord PTT, SR Sel ect Next Radio, COM1 PTT and COM2 PTT.

6.- Rudder Pedals
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.

7.- Radar Elevation:
The top rotary is used to control Radar Elevation ... it's not an axis, so return to neutral once the desired elevation has been attained.

8.- DCS Simple Radio keybindings:

Define the following keybindings on DCS SR:

SR_Select_Next_Radio = {LCTL 0}

9.- Discord keybindings:

Define the following keybindings on Discord:

Discord_PTT = {LCTL 4}

10.- Headtracking & Custom Views:

Define the following keybindings on your headtracking software:

Headtracking_ON-OFF = {RCTL F9}

Define the following snapviews on DCS F/A-18:

KP8 = Closeup view of UFC
KP6 = Closeup View of Right DDI
KP4 = Closeup view of Left DDI
KP2 = Closeup view of MFCD

The snapviews are toggles, so press them again to exit the Snapview ... DON'T go from one Snapview directly to another, always toogle out before changing to another Snapview.

11.- DCS Joystick bindings:

To have a smoother operation of the Speedbrake, on Option-Controls within DCS, assign the following Binding to the Cougar

Speed Brake Switch - EXTEND = JOY_BTN25

11.- Target Designation Cursor:

The TDC can be moved, on the radar screen, using either the Microstick, or the HAT3 (shifted with S3) ... this is on purpose, so the player can use whichever hand he prefers ... however, the TDC Depress action is only binded to the button press on the Microstick.

Thanks to Jack, fr om Hungary, for the gorgeous screenshot.
