Majestic Q400 Pro 125Hz Controls Config Tool

Majestic Q400 Pro 125Hz Controls Config Tool
After buying the pro version of the Q400, I found it a bit of a faff to setup the 125Hz controls which make the controls smoother. So I decided to create a small config tool to help others!

Requirements and Prerequisites
Before you can use the tool you will need the following:
Microsoft Windows Vista, 7, 8 or 10.
Majestic Q400 Pro edition
Microsoft Flight Simulator X (Service Pack 2 or Acceleration) or Lockheed Martin Prepar3D.
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1 or later (free)

Download and install
Download the latest version here.
Open the zip file and open MJQ400125.exe, you must "Run as Admin".

Instructions
Using the tool is pretty self explanatory:


Section 1
The program will try to locate your mjc84.ini file. If it can't you will be asked to find this yourself. It is normally located in [FSX Folder]\SimObjects\Airplanes\mjc8q400\ini

Section 2
Here you can backup and restore your ini file. It is recommended to do this before you begin.

Section 3
If you are unsure of which joystick axis is which you can find out here.
Simply select the joystick you want to test and then move the axis on your controller. Work your way though the list of available axis and once you find one where the values change you have found the axis letter assigned to your joystick.

Section 4
Select which joystick and axis you would like to assign to each control surface, and if you need to invert the axis tick the box next to the control surface.

Support
If you find any bugs, or have any comments or suggestions then Intercity pilots can reply below, or non Intercity pilots can contact me here

Excellent work Chris. Must admit this has been something I wanted to do but was put off by the technical intricacies. Will defo try this out.

Hello Chris,


Does this also works for the PILOT PRO version?

Majestic Pilot edition does not support 125 Hz controls, so this tool will not work. This is a Majestic restriction.

Wow what a difference, brilliant tool! Majestic really should have it as part of their pro package.
