Joystick Diagrams 2.0 - Release

Posted: February 27, 2024

🥇 It’s here! 🥇

Today we’re releasing version 2 of Joystick Diagrams with a bunch of features that hopefully make it a bit easier to use.

A big thanks to everyone who has helped test this, and special thanks to those on Discord especially omfgkarlmarx, xilacnog, toastybank3nobi, drakehinst, tsudico, basox70, dutch, stu martin and blackwell. Extended thanks to those in the DCS Refugees who’ve also helped and anyone I’ve missed.


First some terminology Profiles - Version 2 works completely off Profiles which represent your game/tool configurations, some tools may have one Profile, others may have many (such as DCS with each profile being an aircraft)

What’s new?

  • Enhanced User Interface: Experience a completely revamped UI that provides unparalleled insights into your setup, offering a clearer, more intuitive approach to managing your configurations.
  • Flexible Plugin System: Plugin system for parsers, designed to support custom plugins. This feature opens the door for 3rd party game and tool authors, opening the tool to even more support!.
  • Native Modifier Support: With our native support, Modifiers can now be utilized directly, subject to the game or tool plugin’s compatibility.
  • Game-Specific Modifier Support: We are proud to announce that DCS World and Star Citizen now support Modifiers
  • Profile Preview and Device Binding: Preview your binds directly within the application, allowing you to easily navigate through the setup for each profile and its devices. This feature ensures that your configurations are always at your fingertips.
  • Profile Chaining: Combine profiles from different sources, such as Joystick Gremlin and DCS, into a single, cohesive diagram output for each device. This feature simplifies the process of managing complex setups.
  • Device-Specific Template Configuration: Templates are now configured on a per-device basis, eliminating the need for manual naming of template files. This change streamlines the template management process, making it more efficient and user-friendly.
  • Dynamic Template Verification: Templates are dynamically checked to ensure they include all the controls you need for your profile, eliminating the risk of missing buttons and ensuring a fully functional setup.
  • Customizable Export Locations: Choose where your exports are saved, allowing for a more personalized and flexible setup process. This feature provides the flexibility to organize your files according to your preferences.
  • More native template support More templates are now supported out of the box, with more available from the community.


A key part of the update has been removing the dependency to name templates correctly, which made it very hard to have a suite of templates for the same device.

  • 18-HUD Unit 1
  • 18-UFC Unit 1
