Hi, sorry to impose like this. I just picked up a G940 as a replacement for my MSFFB2 that died more than a year ago (anything with force feedback is hard ot find nowadays, it seems). Naturally, my mind is blown, but I'm wondering: how do you toggle the LED colors for the buttons on the throttle?
I've poked around the software a good bit, hoping for a way to manually set it, along with the controls in games like IL-2 Sturmovik, etc., but I havent' seen it yet. Having it turn from green to red to show my throttle is lowered would be very nice, though I'd settle for having them toggle red after hitting them once, and returning back to green the next time. Am I missing something obvious? Or would I have to use other software to create a game controller profile?
Solved! Go to Solution.

D:\x64\program files 64\Logitech\Gaming Software then the zipfile called JoystickSDK. Its a simple program that will let you set the colors. Good luck and if you find out how to get the game to change the colors let me know.
Or the x86 if your 32 bit OS.

Ah, thanks. I'd been looking on the CD the whole time, when I should have just been looking in the installed files.
After poking around a great deal, has anyone actually been able to do things like toggle color switches for the buttons? No luck here thusfar, but I'm very inexperienced in this field.

JoystickSDKDemo is nice, but as the name says it's just a demo!
For example, if you restart the pc the chosen colors disappear and all buttons are green again...
What about a way to set up the colors "for real"?
I'm not talking about programs to make the games interactively change the colors; just something to get a result similar to what I had previously in my X-52 Pro, a real "color setup" enbedded for example in the HOTAS control panel...

The throttle panel buttton lighting control is designed to be set by external commands from games. Since G940 is new, there isn't any direct game software support yet. We expect to have a program for Flight Simulator X support shortly, followed by other simulations as they are updated and released.
As mentioned, the joystick SDK shows what is possible. each button can be assigned a vaue of red, green, amber or off.

Understood, but all the buttons return to green once the pc is restarted.
Is it not possible to implement an option in the next driver release to set up the colors and "fix" them, no matter if the system is rebooted or if there's an eventual external program to interactively control them?
It shouldn't be too complicated!

ok... i see it's not possible to asign colors to the gears status (at this moment), but can we change the color of the button when we press a button or change the mode? how to make this(if it is possible)
