Title: Using HSFX 7.0.2 with SAS Buttons 10.5
Post by: Arthanas on May 07, 2021, 10:28:16 AM
Hello there, I've recently started playing IL-2 1946 and I've been using the HSFX 7.0.2 mod among others on the recommendation of a friend. I am playing on version 4.12.2m.
Now I'm trying to get into designing missions of my own, and I wanted to add some additional planes to my game. For some of these planes I noticed however that they require the SAS buttons file for their flight model.
My question here is whether I can use the SAS Buttons 10.5 file in tandem with HSFX 7.0.2, and if so, where to put it.

If I need to provide further information I'll gladly do so. Thanks in advance.

Kick me, beat me, but isn't 7.0.3 the latest HSFX version?
Why would you want to use an outdated 7.0.2?

Back to the future!  :D
Yes, the last one is 7.0.3!
Watch out for the 7.0.3 Expert version! It has many special features.

It is better to use external FMs rather than play with a hypothetically compatible "buttons".

Upon closer inspection I am indeed actually using version 7.0.3, I was mistaken earlier.

Yeah I'd love to use external flight models and I've used them for some of the planes I've installed so far. The problem here is that for some of the planes I'd like to add the flight model isn't included, rather I'm simply referred to download SAS buttons.

The buttons file in HSFX resides in the "Files/gui/game" folder.
I would not recommend to overwrite that file, rather create your own MODS subfolder and put the buttons file there, e.g. "MODS/SAS Buttons/gui/game".
