ELITE can also be used with third-party hardware devices which are listed as “Game Devices”.
This image shows the ELITE game controller dialog with three game controllers listed. This dialog appears when:
- ELITE is started the first time when one or more game controllers are detected
- you go to the Configuration Page (ALT +G) and select Computer (SET) > Game Controller
By clicking on the according Game controller and then on Select for either the Main Flight Control or the Rudder, you can assign the associated role to the game device. When you click on Configure, you can configure the axis, levers and buttons of the device. Further Information on how to configure your device can be found in this article.
ELITE Pilot supports up to two game devices, e.g. one joystick and one set of pedals.
In the example above you could select the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro and assign it as “Main Flight Control” and select the Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals and assign it to “Rudder”. It is not possible though to additionally assign e.g. the Saitek Pro Flight Cessna Trim Wheel without removing the assignment of either the Logitech Extreme or the Saitek Rudder Pedals.
