I have found a method to assign joystick buttons to controls within the cockpit that can normally only be operated with the mouse. The P51 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 4P51D.MCRO

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

[MACROS]
1=L:DropTank1Switch=SET
2=L:DropTank2Switch=SET
3=L:OilDilute1=SET
4=L:SwitchPrimer1=SET
5=L:GunSightSwitchOn=SET
6=L:CabinVent=SET
7=L:EmergencyGearLever=SET
8=L:ArmRest1=SET


Most of the controls have parameters of 0 and 1. Cabin vent is 0-100 and the two drop tank switch commands are 0,1,2

Enjoy!

Hi,
Quick question. Should one of the DropTank lines be DropTank1Switch=SET instead of both being DropTank2Switch?
Regards,

Yes, probably a typo from me when cutting and pasting, Sorry!

Have edited the post now and it reads correct.

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

here is a linky: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=19751

Thank you Mate (Aussie FRIEND), you have made my day - The Starter switch on the P-51 was driving me crazy.
