OK- I'm asking for some help. First, my hat is off and my wallet is about to open (to donate) to LINDA Developers! GREAT program, far better than the drivel that Logitech provides ("T.A.R.G.E.T.") or FSUIPC alone. As a budding PMDG 737NGX pilot I have been steadily climbing the hardware acquisitions ladder. At present Linda is joyfully controlling my 737NGX via my Logitech HOTAS Warthog Throttle and Joystick Combo. As an aside, I would love to have LINDA be able to fully recognize and implement the quite inexpensive Logitech G13 Gamepad. The G13 has 22 G-buttons and 3 Shift modes, that means about 66 buttons in total, plus an LED READOUT! and a mini-joystick. Linda "sees" this as a 1-button 0-hat device (wrong!). If it could be added to the list of supported gamepads for LINDA, I would personally donate $50 to Linda developers! How fair is that?I think LINDA is a very fine product and a HUGE addition to FSX.All encouragement to the developer team - and please add full support for the G13 as you have for the Warthog!Robert
Please donate today!

Robert,I believe Logitech G13 Gamepad is a keyboard-type HID-device, not a joystick. Keyboards have little different logic than joysticks and LINDA doesn't work with them. There were several requests about supporting additional keyboards in LINDA, but it will require a huge amount of investigation, time and work (I'm not a pro in making this staff). Sorry, but not possible right now.

wow, who could believe that hardware decissions would be made if its compatible to LINDA http://forum.avsim.n...tyle_emoticons/default/LOL.gifWhat an honour! thanks!
I will be returning the G13. If it doesn't work with Linda, it's not practical for my flight deck.

Ever since I discovered LINDA, I'm loving FSX and feel my immersion has gone up 3 or 4 levels. Being able to flip a toggle and have the HUGS come down is cool, and same thing with Landing and Taxi Lights. NO MORE KEYBOARD! Well, I still need the keyboard "a little".
