  1. Healthy New Year Thanks John, the solution of my problem was solved by reinstalling the Saitek drivers. As long as I am not forced to do, I am NOT installing the datagrabber WIN10.
  2. Hi Pete and John, I have a very strange behaviour of my Saitek yoke. System Info: WIN7, Saitek Yoke with Quadrant, FSX, FSUIPC 4, runs without problems since 3 years. The problem started when the yoke was suddenly fully on the left side during flight after disabling the autopilot. Moving to the right side started in the middle (zero) position and goes properly to the right side. But moving to the left jumps from zero to -16384. This happens to all aircrafts. The Windows Game Controller APP shows values of the Yoke, which were completly ok. I totally deinstalled FSX, ch
  3. Oh, I didnt know. Was it announced somewhere. I fully understand you to end development , cause I was a developer also in my early times. Nevertheless, it's bad news for our new function "Ignore" in FSX. I tested the minor update successfully ! Thanks again. best regards Alhard PS: send me a PM if you have a work around idea.
  4. P.S. Its 'Dowson' not 'Dawson'! Sorry for the typo. Cheers Alhard
  5. Hi John, IT WORKS PERFECT with P3D. Thanks! Now I need it also for FSX FSUIPC V4, as the group flies with FSX mainly and often P3D. Is it impertinent or ungrateful to ask for again?
  6. Great, John, thanks for the quick implementation. I will test it tomorrow and I will report.
  7. This is bad and good news!! Bad, cause I would miss you very very much Pete, It was great "talking" and developing over the past 12 years with you. I hope you will stay here in the forum. Good, cause the brilliant tool FSUIPC stays in Dawson family hands. John, welcome again from my side. BTW.: 2 years ago I intended to ask you Pete, who will be your follower? But I didn't dare. Now I got the answer!! Best regards, Alhard (13 years FSUIPC user)
  8. Hi dear Dawsons, thanks for your understanding and proposed help. May I ask Pete: who is John? Your new developing partner? He is very welcome!
  9. Hi Pete, as I am the moderator and group leader of about 8 simulator pilots, we have joint meetings every 4 weeks on two simulators at my home for 8 hours, and also intermediate meetings. For preparation and during my sessions, I configure the flights for new actions on different airplanes, different weather conditions, different airfields. Therefore the FSUIPC calibration and configuration could change very often. I am using profiles from begin on, as we fly gliders, single propeller, twin propeller, commercial airliners (A320), helicopters, etc. Beside the profiles, I sto
  10. Hi Pete, I did not assign any of these "open" axis. What troubles me is the following: When I start my flight and want to change e.g. the calibration of one of my assigned axis, I CAN NOT , due to jittering continuously one of these "open" axis. An access to the correct axis is not possible, as long as I do not click on "ignore axis". The reason for having "open" axis is that some of the input sensors of my micro controller is OPEN. No hardware connected. Does it make sense to send you the log file?
  11. I am using this button 'ignore' each time when I start to fly. And I have to do this for 4 axis! Next time I have to do it again and again, cause this axis ignore is not stored. So I still think this function is missing.
  12. Thanks, this would be fine. I have an USB microcontroller with a lot of buttons and no axis, which send axis information to FSUIPC, though there is no axis installed. And this confuses the FSUIPC configuration with the other real axis.
  13. Hi Pete, I found in the documentation the parameter IgnoreThese= j.b, j.b, ... , but I need ignore axis. I understood it's for buttons only. How can I implement this function ignore axis ?
  14. This is very good information and advise. Thanks. Now I know better what happens. I pressed the key for New_View and I found the corresponding control 65825 (see below). 249835 LogOptions changed, now 60000000 0000001D 249991 Ready Flags: Ready-To-Fly=Y, In Menu=N, In Dlg=N 251489 KEYDOWN: VK=219, Waiting=0, Repeat=N, Shifts=0 251489 .. Key not programmed -- passed on to FS 251489 *** EVENT: Cntrl= 65825 (0x00010121), Param= 0 (0x00000000) NEW_VIEW 251785 KEYUP: VK=219, Waiting=0 25537
