Mapping Accuforce button box buttons to teasmspeak

I am wondering if there are any instructions on how to map Accuforce button box buttons to teamspeak push to talk. I used to have it working at one time, but the functionality was lost when I moved my wheel to a new  computer. I have tried using JoytToKey, but it does not recognize the Accuforce buttons. I also tried looking at what appears to be a button mapping function within Sim Commander 4, but how that works is totally unclear.  Is there anything to help with this question?

I don't use TeamSpeak or Joy2Key so I can't comment on those specifically.

The buttons on the AccuForce conform to the DirectInput standards. They are the same as any button on any brand of wheel. so your issue probably isn't AccuForce specific.

I will put together a little tutorial on the Joystick Commander feature of Sim Commander. It basically allows you to do what Joy2Key does but much more. Once we have the tutorial I'll update this post.

One other thing to think about is that many apps wont accept inputs unless they have focus. You might try clicking on TeamSpeak with your mouse to bring it into focus to see if it works for you then. If it always works when in focus and doesnt when not in focus, that will be a good clue.

Thanks Bernard. Having installed an update to the control plugin for Teamspeak 3, I can map my G25 Gearshift button box buttons to the Team Speak 3 P-to-T, but still not any of the Accuforce buttons. There are many online reports of folks being unable to connect joysticks to Teamspeak 3, starting a couple of years ago, but I have not seen a definitive solution. The key observation reported seems in many of those cases to be that Teamspeak 3 accepts the button press, but not the button release. I am not sure in my experience that Teamspeak 3 is accepting either in some instances. However I have observed in some instances Teamspeak 3 accepting the press, but not the release.
