For turbo props I have purchased 2 x new Saitek throttles and want to be able to swap throttles over depending on what plane I want to fly. Is there a way to do this so that my "ini" file is not changed when I unplug and plug in new throttles?
Normally it is best to plug everything in, and use FSUIPC to assign only those devices you want in each profile. If you unplug and re-plugin devices into the same USB port, then they will get assigned the same Windows ID, so it gets confusing.
If the devices have different GUIDs (strange long number/letter mixes) then what might work is the use of FSUIPC's Joy Letters facility. You tell FSUIPC to assign letters to the devices instead of using Windows numerical IDs. Please see the Joy Letter chapter in the FSUIPC User Guide (see the contents list, about 2nd page).
If the devices are always connected then you could swap aircraft and device use "on the fly", without reloading FS, but I suspect you will need to restart FS each time you want to change over if your devices use the same USB socket. This is because ultimately FSUIPC does have to use the ID number.
Surely you have another USB socket you can use, rather than sharing one?
