Praise God, halleluiah, thank you Jesus, after MUCH trial and error and many hours of frustration,I finaly have everything working the way I want it. All the buttons and axis on my G940 work correctly and the FFB is even pretty close, and I got my TrackIR 5 working right also. So I had my first fully operational flight this morning, buzzing up the Deschutes River Canyon in central Oregon in my Lotus L-39 and man was it great. Mike from Lotus, if you read this, great job on the L-39! Having spent several hours flight hours in an L-39, I can tell you that this is about as close as you can get, especially with the FFB and TrackIR.
Now I just need to figure out the overheating and blue/grey/tan SOD issues with my laptop. With all the USB and HDMI plugged in, it runs very warm and will occasionally lock up. I think the best solution is to upgrade the desk top and have as much cooling as I want.
