Input settings, controls.ini file code list and descriptions & vJoy binding hints

Post by melodrama » Mon May 11, 2020 11:35 am

Hello, I'm using the programs Joystick Gremlin and vJoy to bind my controls. (I can bind one or more buttons as mode selector with Joystick Gremlin that is not possible with Condor's own binding system)

Binding itself was/is quite tricky because system identifies and bind the actual control instead of vJoy.

I ended up bind most of the axis and buttons manually and make the required modifications into controls.ini file directly. controls.ini file is quite cryptic, it contains weird-looking control device id codes (keyboard and control id's are between braces) and list of number-type codes how Condor input commands are linked to input control devices, codes on the left are Condor side codes and right ones are the connected control device codes for axis, hats and buttons.

I made lot's of testings and I found what these left side codes means. List is here:
controls.ini code : Description
0 : Bank axis
1 : Pitch axis
2 : Rudder axis
3 : Air brake axis

Most of these Condor side codes are bind into keyboard as default and they are listed under keyboard device id code. List above is useful when binding controls manually. You can bind vJoy device via Condor Assign window also if you find a way how to send vJoy axis-, HAT- or specific button activation information without pressing the actual control button at the same time. Some of the vJoy axis can be found when the actual controls are not connected to PC, but not all. Then I founded that I can use Joystick Gremlin macro feature; I can add 2-3 second delay before actual vJoy command (button Press and Release commands, for example) => I can activate the control bind command outside the Condor assign window and then activate the actual assign cell/field before vJoy sends the command. This works well with the button assign, I didn't find proper way (yet) how this could work with axis (I found the missing axis just by trying different code alternatives)..

controls.ini is located under *\Documents\Condor\Pilots\* (*=your own computer and Condor installation specific folder names)

Nice job
However you might have saved yourself all that testing time if you had searched the forum :roll: :roll:

Yep, I saw that => most of the codes were available from Condor side but not all (codes 1-6, and 2005 and newest adding 3080 were missing from CMD.txt file)..
