I have found a method to assign joystick buttons to controls within the cockpit that can normally only be operated with the mouse. The P40 only has a few.

First for an explanation on how this works see this thread in the P47 Accusim section, its long so thats why im not repeating it!

viewtopic.php?f=55&t=19524

For the P51 use the Macros below and create a file as per the P47 explanation. Call it 3P40.MCRO

The 3 will mean that these controls are near the front of the list ( I have used 1,2 and 4 for other planes).

[MACROS]
1=L:PropellerSwitchMode=SET
2=L:PropellerSwitchVis=SET
3=L:PropellerSwitchCircut=SET
4=L:CompassLight=SET
5=L:GunSightSwitchOff=SET
6=L:GunCharge1=SET
7=L:GunCharge2=SET
8=L:GunCharge3=SET
9=L:GunCharge4=SET
10=L:GunCharge5=SET
11=L:GunCharge6=SET
12=L:HydrHandPump=SET
13=L:CabinVent=SET
14=L:GunSightCoverClosed=SET
15=L:PrestoneTest=SET
16=L:KlaxonTest=SET
17=L:OilDilute0=SET
18=L:FuelGageLight=SET
19=L:TriggerModeP40=SET
20=L:OxyAltSet=SET


Most have parameters of 0,1. OxyAltSet is 0-100 as is Cabin vent.

I have only experimented a little with the first three commands, the propellor set ones but havent got them working quite right. Try combinations of parameters 0,1 and 2

Enjoy!

I have written an explanation on how to create your own macro files for any aircraft or amend this one.
