  1. you're right, I'm not using those assignments now Yes, last night went to sleep thinking about it and thought that must be the problem, not related to fsuipc but to the hotas Got it It can if not using the hotas software, if using it it seems it can't. Using the software they are combined into one device and appear in fsx as "combined". If not using it both throttle and joystick work independently and appear as 2 devices in fsx, Apologies, my name is Bruno I'd prefer to use it as It'll be easier to keep a backup of the profile and I'd like to use S4 as Pinky for further assigments. Seems I'll have to decide if I want independent reversers I'll have to go this way Will try it out and see how it goes. Thank you for your help Bruno Hands
  2. are you using the target software ? I am able to assign reversers as buttons in fsuipc if not using TARGET but not if TARGET is active
  3. Hello Stephen, did you assign the reversers to the throttles "off" position ? Because on my machine FSUIPC will only recognize it as keypress. thank you for your help
  4. I have tried logging but don't really understand what's there I have noticed though that activating reversers from the hotas the logging result is this 4040098 LogOptions changed, now 60000000 00000001 4043671 KEYDOWN: VK=16, Waiting=0, Repeat=N, Shifts=1 4043671 ..

I can send you the full log file if needed Sorry, I meant keypress as what is programmed in the hotas and when using keyboard to try keypresses, In Fsuipc I'm indeed assigning controls I understand now that it has got nothing to do with this problem I'm having, thought it might make a difference as the keypress function in the hotas is actually an extension of the throttles axis, ie, pushing throttle all the way back it stops at idle but throttle can be lifted and pushed back further thus activating the keypress Sorry for the confusion but I am finding this really confusing
  5. I just noticed that I had wrongly configured throttle dec in throttle one, instead of assigning "throttle 1 dec" I had assigned "Throttle Dec" which activates both reversers. I think I hadn't noticed this in the 747 as keypresses were actuating only in engine 1 and 2 Having assigned the correct command "Throttle 1 dec" and "throttle 2 dec" respectively I just noticed that reversers are not working properly also on FSX's default aircraft, ie.737 But if I press the combination in the keyboard it works perfectly. Combination I'm using is shift+F8 for left reverser and Shift+F9 for right one and pressing each one respectively or Shift+F8+F9 at same time in keyboard both reversers actuate. I also checked the hotas reversers through it's event tester and it seems to be working properly, I can see both keypresses in the tester and both come up at the same time. I think it might have to do with the way FSUIPC receives the commands from the hotas or sends both keypresses to fsx . I've tried rebuillding Fsuipc Ini file to no avail. I also tried assigning single keypress in hotas for each reverser and problem persists but I noticed that with only one key for each reverser and using the keyboard if both keys are pressed simultaneously both reversers actuate but if I press the keys with just a 1/4 of a second delay between keypresses only one reverser actuates, however if I press the keys with a couple of seconds or so delay between, both reversers work so I guess this is the problem, FSUIPC is not sending both keypresses simultaneously to FSX Needless to say this is quite impractical with dual throttles\reversers, more so in the warthog as I have to lift the throttles to move them backwards to activate the reversers. This happens both in "send to fs as normal axis" and direct to FSUIPC calibration mode. None of these key combinations are assigned in fsx. Can you please help me in solving this issue ? Best regards
  6. Sorry to bother again but although this system works with default 747 it won't work with airbus extended, I tried making a specific profile in fsuipc assigned right throttle to eng 2 dec but when I apply reversers engine nr 2 reverser only moves a fraction and won't apply reverser. But if I apply throttle one first and throttle 2 after throttle 1 being engaged it works perfectly, looks like it's not accepting input from both throttles at the same time, any idea idea what might be causing this ? Thank you.
  7. Thank you very much, problem solved :razz: For reference what I did was to add 2nd and forth line with the fs code for 2nd and 4th engine and key presses were shift+F8 for left engines and shift+F9 for right engines. It might help someone in the same situation. 5=119,9,65966,0 6=119,9,65971,0 7=120,9,65976,0 8=120,9,65981,0 Best regards
  8. Hi, I've got the Hotas Warthog which is dual throttle and i'm trying to setup reverser of each throttle to left and right engines respectively in FSX for 4 engines aircraft. I want to set the "off" buttons of the throttles instead of the axis to do this but haven't been able to, can you please help me ? I setup different keypresses in hotas's profiler both left and right throttle, with key press to activate and key release command with 3 seconds delay which gives enough time to fully activate reversers. Following FSUIPC manual, throttle axis are configured in FSUIPC to command 2 engines each and working correctly. In FSUIPC I assigned each of these keypresses in keypresses section to throttle 1 and 2 respectively and to each 1 I assigned throttle dec. I managed to get this working but the thing is it's only working on one engine respectively, I understand this command only works for any 1 of the four engines if I select eng dec 1,2,3 or 4, is it possible to assign each command to 2 engines so that each hotas throttle's keypress commands reverser on 2 engines ? I'm finding this a bit difficult to configure and so far this has been the closest I have gotten to get this working if there's another solution I'd appreciate if you could please let me know. Thank you. Edit. forgot to add, I have registered version of fsuipc and wide fs, if it matters.
  9. Hello, I'm trying to configure reverser on an X52 throttle, i'm following guide and have read several posts here but cannot get it to work. Throttle movements are detected on tab 1 of JS calibration in fsuipc (latest version) but when I try on tab 3 there's no input, IN and OUT are at 0, reverse -16380 Idle -512 and Max 16380, can someone please help me as I'm trying to configure it for eaglesoft's citation v2 Thank you Regards Bruno
