Instructions for the F18 IFEI Controller V2 (April 2023 Onwards with purple controller)
This unit requires DCSBIOS to be installed for the displays and the buttons and toggles to work, there is no mode changing for the inputs to avoid performance issues.
By default the unit is loaded with support the HUB Version of dcsbios, you need to follow the instructions here to install it.
Once this is installed you will need to go to open the DCSBIOS Web page and go to Plugins and in the installation url below paste in https://github.com/tekcreations/TekF18V2 and hit Install
Once this is done you will see the below
Please make sure you also go Tick and Delete the module-fa-18c-hornet Plugin
Also you will need to go to the export.lua file which is in $HOME\Saved Games\DCS\Scripts\Export.lua and ensure that the DCSBIOS line is at the very TOP
If you are successful when you load into DCS and are ready on the ramp, if you alt tab to the DCSBIOS Dashboard webpage the Virtual Cockpit connection should be green, as see below it is not, so there is an issue with the install of DCSBIOS
