X-52Pro A-10C Tutorial (basic use)

1. Installing it

You downloaded DEC 0111 SAITEK X52 DCS A-10C PROFILE BY TOM WEISS : http://www.lockonfil...ick-profile-v1/ ,


extract it to your desktop

this profile was made for the X-52Pro, but it works also for the X-52

before doing anything else do this:

Installing it:


this mod includes two files that you need to add or the profile won't work , the mission in the video and the Saitek X-52/52 Pro profile.


Place AN_ALE40V_params.lua in:

...:\DCS A-10C\Scripts\Aircrafts\A-10C\Cockpit\AN_ALE40V\device\

or simply paste the folder in the Eagle Dynamics folder


Place Saitek X52 Pro Flight Controller.lua in

...:\Users\\Saved Games\DCS Warthog\Config\Input Joysticks\

*** IF YOU HAVE AN X-52, rename this file as Saitek X52 Flight Controller.lua or like the one you have already there


Place X52 A-10C v1.pr0 in

...:\Users\Public\Documents\Saitek SD6 Profiles\


Place Mission 1.miz in

...:\Users\\Saved Games\DCS Warthog\Missions

if you are having problems with step 3:

the profile X52 A-10C v1.pro must be added to the folder where all profiles go - how to do this:

open the folder you extracted, CLICK ON THE FILE

X52 A-10C v1.pro

AND COPY IT so that you can paste it

To add the profile - click on the Joystick Icon


select Profile Editor

the Saitek window will open

click on Programming

click on the Folder Icon - a window will open


now, PASTE THE FILE X52 A-10C v1.pro THERE

the profile is installed in-game an in the Saitek Folder.

Good job Tom. I'm occupied with BS2 right now, but certainly will use when I'm back on A-10C.

Hi Tom, thanks for the great X52Pro setup, just wanted to let you know I tried it on DCS World and the locations changed from DCS A10C, they are easily found but just in case anyone needed:

<DIR>\DCS World\Mods\aircrafts\A-10C\Cockpit\Scripts\AN_ALE40V\device\AN_ALE40V_params.lua

<DIR>\Users\..\Saved Games\DCS\Config\Input Joysticks\Saitek X52 Pro Flight Controller.lua

<DIR>\Users\..\Saved Games\DCS\Missions\Mission 1.miz

Looking forward to getting up to speed with DCS World and the A10C with this to help.
