  1. Hi Pete May I ask you to please answer me precisely, specifically and directly according to my questions. Which of the following environments would you recommend me to calibrate my PMDG: 1. Send to FS as normal axis inside the FSUIPC environment? OR 2. Calibrate my axis entirely inside the P3Dv4 settings environment? Morten
  2. Hi Pete 1. In my specific situation I'm using PMDG 777 most often. However occasionally I use these other aircraft for VFR: 2. Standard P3Dv4 Mooney Bravo aircraft 3. Third party DC3 by Daniel Fuernkaess, Manfred Jahn, Alexander M. Metzger, Hans-Joerg Naegele, Mike Cyul, Warwick Carter, Jan Visser So in this particular situation of mine what would you advise me to do regarding calibration methods and profile systems for each aircraft? Regards, Morten PS. Actually my very least occasional problems is NOT with my rudder/brake pedals (occasionally the pedals are completely "dead" by start up a session. But immediately solved by simply replugging the USB connection with absolutely no further incidents whatsoever!) As I wrote to you my main problem is my 4 quadrant throttles and my yoke!
  3. Thanks indeed Pete for taking your time and getting back to me with a quick response... I'll look into your answer in depth and get back to you if any further questions. Regards, Morten
  4. Hi Thomas If this is really the case in relation to PMDG, this is very cruisel for me and my settings! However you were a bit fast in your answer, so please confirm if I got you right: Types of axis assignments as it shows up in your program: 1. Send direct to FSUIPC Calibration 2. Send to FS as normal axis 3. Send to FSUIPC Offset So what you are telling us is that we have to stick to No.2 "Send to FS as normal axis" in the case of PMDG. CORRECT? As it is my separate yoke, pedals and 4 quadrant throttles are all currently assigned to No.1 "Send direct to FSUIPC Calibration" AND I got problems with P3Dv4/PMDG 777! A. My yoke will occasionally go completely bananas/uncontrollable whenever I disconnect the autopilot on approach - then I have to set sim to pause and reconnect the USB yoke before it will work normal again. B. FSUIPC keeps to forget my separate throttles per engine Joystick Calibration. Which means that I have to recalibrate my throttles all over again when starting a new sim session. Obviously pretty annoying! NB. I have already disabled ALL my axis settings inside the P3Dv4 settings. Also I'm fully aware of that P3D occasionally tend to put them back again, so I have an eye on that. Nevertheless, problems as described above keeps on ruining my sims! Question is, if all this is because of using a wrong FSUIPC axis assignment type? Regards, Morten FSUIPC5.ini
  5. Hi there Thomas I much appreciate your interest for this subject. However I'm sorry to tell you that you unfortunately completely missed out the very obvious and straightforward point to the subject, which is simply to add a version number to the zip file. That's all! Cheers my friend
  6. Hello Pete Really now, that is not a reasonable argument: (Because) "That it has always been the case". Old men as we are, better be rational and keep evaluating according to development in our present time. In other words, plane and simple, naming a Zip file according to the relevant version number is what EVERY other developer does in these days, away from you! About detail properties for the "Install FSUIP5.exe": It says, file version which obviously gives no clue to the present FSUICP version 5.154 in this relevant case!
  7. Hi There On your site you kindly inform us about this: If you download a version which is not the same as displayed on this page, *please* empty your browser's cache or make sure you have specified the right download folder, thank you. Also try pressing Ctrl-F5 which should force a direct reload of the page in case your ISP is caching any links on this page. However unfortunately your download zips only show: "FSUIPC5.zip" without any version number whatsoever. If one after the extraction of the zip file then check the actual "Install FSUIP5.exe" one will only get the version of the installer version itself and NOT the actual FSUIPC version. So how would you expect us to verify that we actually have downloaded the most recent version? Cheers, Morten
  8. Come on Pete, what do you take me for! Of course I know all about that. But at the time parking brakes had already been released by me long time before this blocking occured. However as I wrote above, this issue has now been completely solved with help from John. Thanks Pete for that reminder!
  9. Yes! The "Direct to FSUIPC" choice solved the blocked foot brakes after landing! Thanks John!!! (Pedals regarding to steering is however still chosen to be "Direct to FS", as it was the only way to solve my PMDG 777 steering problems - strange...but whatever it takes!) Cheers, Morten
  10. Oh dear...not quite, actually. By disabling P3Dv4.4s own joystick controllers and sending everything through FSUIPC - including the brake on my pedals: "to FS as normal axis" I get an allround perfect and steering setup - EXCEPT for the fact that brakes now seems to block 100% whenever I start taxing and after landing. When taxing I have to hit the food brake in order to release brakes which I haven't touched in the first place at all! Upon landing, it's not enough to hit the food brake twice (as in the good old FSX days). The only way I can release brakes here is when turning the Autobrake button off and on several times, otherwise I'm completely stuck in the middle of the runway with ruined tires! Unfortunately, as I wrote before, to enable P3Dv4.4s own controls only for the pedals is NOT an option for me - Because I'm not allowed to mix my sims controls with FSUIPC as it is. Otherwise my yoke suddenly becomes uncontrollable and go bananas! Frustrating because the sims own controller has an option to define null zones for the brakes which FSUIPC unfortunately don't have (at least to my knowledge). In other words, according to this link, the missing Null zones is what causes exactly this issue: https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/512544-777-prepar3d-v4-ils-parked-and-blown-brakes-on-landing/?do=findComment&comment=3662099 Any idea to sort this problem out, strictly, within the FSUIPC environment, please?
  11. Fully agree - hate those beeps, not knowing what the heck is going on...
  12. Ahhh okay.... I'm afraid that you misunderstood me using the term "sensitive" - I'm not literally referring to the joysticks as the being sensitive. They are working perfect now in EVERY sense! What I was referring to was what was my experience with the newest version of P3Dv4.4 being ultra sensitive/intolerant to mixes between buttons assigned directly under the options of P3Dv4.4 and axis assigned under FSUIPC - with the result of joysticks going bananas! Although not a purely correct mix - anyway at least tolerated in P3D versions up to v 4.4. All according to what I wrote earlier: So, in other words, trough your effective advice, to disable controls completely in P3D and do all calibration and assignments within the FSUIPC environment is what made everything perfect to all my joysticks in P3Dv4.4. So for now: - Everything works perfect! - Happy ending! - Morten being happy! - End of troubles! Cheers, Morten
  13. What?? "all the fuss" .......? I was struggling my arms off in order to get things right here - I finally ended up with succes, as you well know partly through your advice to disable P3D controls, and partly through my own experiment of letting pedals axes go through "Send to FS as normal axis". So no more "fuss", just happiness. But you asked me about some analytic questions, which I answered. Nothing more to it. 😃 Yes indeed, I'm off flying! Cheers, Morten
  14. Throttles: "direct to FSUIPC calibration" Spoilers: "direct to FSUIPC calibration" PropPitch: "direct to FSUIPC calibration" Mixture: "direct to FSUIPC calibration" Yoke: all axes: "direct to FSUIPC calibration" Hat switch on yoke: "Send to FS as normal axis" (NEW assignment) Pedals, rudder: "Send to FS as normal axis" (fairly NEW assignment. Solved front wheel steering problems ) Pedals, brakes: "Send to FS as normal axis" (fairly NEW assignment) P3D "Use Controllers": Disabled (fairly NEW assignment. Solved throttles unable to be calibrated correctly and yoke going bananas after disabling autopilot) ALL buttons assigned through FSUIPC (NEW assignment) ______________________________________________________________ "Calibrating?" Yes of course! "Check in the P3D support forum". No way Pete, check yourself if you like. For my part I'm just happy now that everything works again! /Morten
  15. Yes I'm sure. All the sim hardware including throttles, yoke and pedals has been exactly the same all the time. All I have changed is new monitors and according to those I changed resolutions and the fullscreen setup. Also installed MS Office. And of course I can't tell whether any MS update could have had any influence here. /Morten
