  1. Pete, allow me to be the first to ask the inevitable question... =) Is the most recent FSUIPC compatible with 4.3? (I withdraw the question if you've not been given the chance by LM to pre-test). - Bill
  2. Hi Pete, I can't seem to capture AXIS_THROTTLEn_SET events in my SimConnect client. I can capture every other axis, like AXIS_RUDDER_SET, AXIS_ELEVATOR_SET, etc. This only seems to occur when I run my throttle axes through FSUIPC... Any idea? Thanks, - Bill
  3. Argh, was my mistake, had a typo in my Keys section: no wonder it wasn't matching! =( Sorry for the false alarm: I confirm that all tabs are matching as expected. Many thanks, - Bill
  4. Thanks Pete, am just finding time now to test out the fix... The Buttons tab now works correctly. Unfortunately, the Keys tab still exhibits the same behavior: shows full name in title bar, and writes to the wrong Keys section. Thanks, - Bill
  5. I'm asbolutely sure the behavior did not exist at one point in time... would have driven me crazy. =) But with which prior version, I am not sure. Sorry I cannot be more specific, Pete. =( However, prior to these recent JS41 changes, the last time I made any changes to my FSUIPC4.INI file was around the time I bought the PMDG MD-11... which is definitely well before 4.50. So... the theory that it may be due to the Profile changes seems at least likely. Thanks, - Bill
  6. Pete, After some more experimentation, this appears to be changed behavior... 1) Tried a longer substring... same changed behavior (in every respect). 2) Tried with other aircraft, where I am absolutely sure this behavior did not exist before... same changed behavior (in every respect). However: I took a look at, and enabled, the "Profile" mechanism. Interestingly, everything works when this is enabled (i.e. FSUIPC is matching and displaying "41" in the title bars, and writing to the correct sections)! Please let me know if there is anything more you need from me. Thanks! - Bill
  7. Correct. Yeah, I would have definitely seen this before. So, either the behavior is new, or your suspicion about the short substring is correct. "41" is definitely the shortest substring I've ever used... (due to some inconsistent aircraft naming on PMDG's part!) I'll try a longer substring and see if that helps. Ack! I'm so sorry to hear that Pete, I hope that everything works out okay!! Thanks, - Bill
  8. I am quite familiar with the general vs "aircraft specific" concept (been a FSUIPC user for many years now). But, just to ensure I didn't do something stupid, I double checked everything for you. =) The behavior definitely occurs when I select "aircraft specific" prior to making any changes. In addition, when I click "aircraft specific", the full aircraft name is being displayed, not just "41". Some other observations: 1) The full aircraft name is also displayed in the "Axis Assignment" page... and yet any changes here get correctly saved to [Axes.41]. 2) The short aircraft name (i.e. "41") is displayed in the "Joystick Calibration" page. So... pretty inconsistent across the three pages! =) I have not had a look at the new "Profile" mechanism yet... do you intend on dropping support for the "old way"? If so, I had better learn more! Thanks, - Bill
  9. Hi Pete, Ran into a wee bug recently w.r.t. "ShortAircraftNameOk=Substring", and thought I'd pass it along. I have the following sections setup for my new Jetstream 41: [Axes.41] [JoystickCalibration.41] [Buttons.41] Now, if I go into FSUIPC settings and try to change a mapping for some button, the [buttons.41] section does not get updated. Instead, a new section is added. For example: [Buttons.PMDG Jetstream 41 US Airways Express] Notes: [*:2qhx2gkq]The Axes and JoystickCalibration sections are not affected by this: when I make changes there, the changes are written to the correct section.[*:2qhx2gkq]Not sure about the Keys section: I don't have any keys mapped. So it may or may not have the same bug.[*:2qhx2gkq]Running version 4.548 (the latest, I believe) Thanks! - Bill
  10. Oh wow, that is very cool!! 8) Thanks for pointing that out, Pete, going to play around with it... - Bill
  11. Dave, a couple of comments. 1) I too had the same behavior in the air. When I switched the axis to use "Direct to FSUIPC", it works properly now. 2) Where in the world did you get (or figure out) those macros for the PMDG DLL?? Thanks, - Bill
  12. For the PMDG? So now it is impossible to see if anything in the PMDG code is responsible, or contributing. Don't you ever use other aircraft? Results from a default aircraft would have been far more relevant and interesting. Sorry, I should have mentioned: I used the default 747-400 for this, not PMDG. Yes, I do use other aircraft, but started from a complete reinstall recently. Well, simply put: I use different axes for different purposes on other aircraft. Okay Pete, thanks for all of the feedback on this. As I mentioned at the very beginning, this is nothing more than an annoyance - I can live with it. - Bill
  13. No apparent change in behavior, after changing to Direct. I removed the section entirely, and here is the section: 0=0X,256,D,22,0,0,0 1=0Y,256,D,9,0,0,0 2=0Z,256,D,10,0,0,0 3=0R,256,D,11,0,0,0 4=0U,256,D,23,0,0,0 5=0V,256,D,12,0,0,0 6=1X,256,D,1,0,0,0 7=1Y,256,D,2,0,0,0 8=1V,256 9=1V,B,-16384,-10012,66080,0 10=1V,B,10496,16383,66079,0 11=1P,0,F,66416,0,0,0 12=2X,256,D,7,0,0,0 13=2Y,256,D,8,0,0,0 14=2Z,256,D,3,0,0,0 Here is the log.
