for the sake of automation, and in favor of the “Get Notified” button available at VKBcontrollers.com’s various product pages, I have decided to discontinue the newsletter mailing list effectively immediately.
Instead, the “Get Notified” option (see example below) will send you an automated email once the desired product is back in stock, including a link to the respective product page with purchase options.
This is a lot more efficient than having to manually generate an email each time a product is back in stock using a third-party mailing list.
Other Gunfighter ‘Space Combat Edition’ variants, including the Pro with extension kit, or with Kosmosima non-Premium grips, will follow a little while later for a staggered release.
Those of you who are waiting for the Gunfighter Mk.II ‘Modern Combat Edition’ or ‘WWII Combat Edition’ will have to be a little more patient, as VKB HQ’s current focus is getting the ‘Space Combat Edition’ release rolling
Once I learn more about subsequent Gunfighter release dates, I will send out newsletters to let everyone know.
VKB HQ provided firmware to enable Kosmosima support for Gladiator Pro Mk.II, and I made it available on our Downloads page.
Remember, when installing a new grip, you will have to flash the Gladiator Pro’s MCU (Micro-processing Unit) to recognize the new grip; if you only install the grip without flashing, the grip will not work, and the grip won’t be recognized in VKBdevCfg either.
VKB HQ provided firmware to enable Kosmosima support for Gunfighter (Mk.I/II), and a new VKBdevCfg version that supports Kosmosima’s features. I made them available on our Downloads page.
Remember, when installing a new grip, you will have to flash the Gunfighter’s Blackbox to recognize the new grip; if you only install the grip without flashing, the grip will not work, the Blackbox ‘Stick LED’ will blink red, and the grip won’t show up in VKBdevCfg either.
Please follow the instructions in the Gunfighter Quick Guide (pg. 9-11) for flashing/resetting after installing your new Kosmosima grip onto your Gunfighter.
Until next time,
PS: Once VKB HQ releases the firmware to enable Kosmosima support for Gladiator Pro Mk.II, I will let everyone know.
just a heads-up: knowing that VKB HQ initially estimated Kosmosima grips to start shipping 5-7 days after ordering, here’s a quick update from Daisy over at VKB HQ; she said that they are a little behind with the production of PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards) for the grips, so they expect Kosmosima grip orders to start shipping by the end of next week.
Once VKB HQ provides me with tracking numbers, I will update your orders accordingly.
