    Is DirectX FFB support being added? I see it mentioned in the new firmware.


    Yes update the firmware and download the usb tool


    Get this when running the USB tool. Looks like it’s looking for a folder this doesn’t exist.

    Hi Naaman

    Please try this version:
    Run it with the batch file “Log Debug Messages.bat” and upload the log file after you’re done.



    This one works, though when I first activated DX mode the tool said there were no supported devices and I had to update firmware (I am on the latest). Closed the program and reopened and they were there in DX mode and I was about the test them in the Configure and Test tab.

    thanks a lot Diego! That seems to work pretty well. I’ve tried multiple effects and everything seems to work as expected.
    The only issue I see is when stoping an effect and trying to start it again, some times that gets ignored. I get that from time to time also in IL-2. There might be some kind of timing issue.

    The easiest way I know to reproduce this is to open the ForceTest.exe file and run it. Start the spring effect, then click on start and stop some other effects and you’ll see it being ignored randomly


    I updated the firmware for rudder and stick to 642. Getting this error every time I try to run BrunnerUsbConfigTool:

    I have a CLS-P

    I managed to get Brunner USB working.

    In IL2 I get force in pitch, but in roll the stick just wants to pull hard full left or right and stay there. Any ideas?


    Hi @moespeeds, would you mind posting how you get passed that error (“Could not load file or assembly ‘SlimDX.dll’…”)? I’m seeing the same thing.


    I have USB Config tool ver 1.7. The program crashes ever since changing to directx mode. So, I cannot change from DX mode to the default CLS Sim mode. In Direct X mode, I am not getting FFB responses. Instead I ctd with the attached error. I’m stuck not being able to use the Clssim2 software in default mode since I can’t turn it off.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
