I found this over on the 242 Sqd site. http://www.242sqn.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3423&sid=eaffcabc5e76131884b3452ce5fa19a3

 

It doesn't give you differential braking, but you can use both toes to activate the brakes. This excerpt is from post #6. It's a good option for those who don't have programmable rudder pedals.

 

You can simulate that here already. Go to your IL2 folder and go to Users>Doe>Settings. When you open up the folder' date=' scroll down to this section:

 

[b'][HotKey move]

AXE_RX JoystickDevice1=trimelevator

AXE_RY JoystickDevice1=trimaileron

AXE_RZ JoystickDevice2=rudder

AXE_RZ JoystickDevice1=trimrudder

AXE_U JoystickDevice1=pitch

AXE_U JoystickDevice0=-radiator

AXE_Y JoystickDevice2=brakes

AXE_X JoystickDevice0=aileron

AXE_Y JoystickDevice0=elevator

AXE_Z JoystickDevice1=-power [/b]

 

Note the section highlighted in red. In your file that will either be AXE_X JoystickDevice2=brakes or AXE_X JoystickDevice2=brakes or whatever device your brakes are on your setup.. If the line in your file says X then copy that line and add Y if it says Y copy the line and add X so that you will end up with something like this:

 

[HotKey move]

AXE_RX JoystickDevice1=trimelevator

AXE_RY JoystickDevice1=trimaileron

AXE_RZ JoystickDevice2=rudder

AXE_RZ JoystickDevice1=trimrudder

AXE_U JoystickDevice1=pitch

AXE_U JoystickDevice0=-radiator

AXE_X JoystickDevice2=brakes

AXE_Y JoystickDevice2=brakes

AXE_X JoystickDevice0=aileron

AXE_Y JoystickDevice0=elevator

AXE_Z JoystickDevice1=-power

 

Save that file. Then.. and this is important.. Change the properties on that file to read only.

 

The reason why you have to change that is because if you don't as soon as you launch the sim and go into the controls menu it will reset to the default the same as the screen resolution setting do in the config file if you open up il2 setup. When you go into the Hardware> inputs screen in the sim and look at the Axes you will notice that there will be two lines for brakes and you can adjust the sliders for each one accordingly. This can be done even in the stock IL2 with no mods at all.
