Currently by default the unit comes as a USB HID Joystick Controller This will work perfectly fine for any game and will require mapping to be done in most games.
PLEASE NOTE This unit will not show up in Game controllers in Windows 8 or 10. The until will be detected by games as a joystick but windows doesn’t show it.
Whilst in Joystick mode, you may turn the backlighting on or of by Holding CLEAR and pressing ENTER, this toggles them on or off.
If you are already using or wish to use DCSBIOS you can switch the unit to DCSBIOS mode by holding CLEAR and pushing N+E. The unit will flash and then function through DCSBIOS. It is up to you to know how to use and install DCSBIOS. In DCSBIOS mode the lights will work.
Whilst in DCSBIOS mode the Backlit Brightness is controlled by the INST Panel in game!
When you want to switch to USB HID Joystick mode, Hold CLEAR and push S/W Rate. Again the unit will flash and it will present as a Joystick.
