  1. I ran the 4.97a installer and all is well. My original settings all preserved. Remarkably so, in fact, as for whatever reason FSX hasburst into life with '3-D' perspective I never had before! Thanks again, as always, Pete. You never fail!
  2. Until today, that was the last time I flew FSX-SE. I've lost all my FSUIPC settings too! No newer file. C:\Users\Howard\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent has the same file with today's date in Explorer, but still 30/4/2020 in the log.
  3. I run FSX-SE on one HDD, and P3Dv4.5 on another. Windows 10. When I flew FSX-SE today, after a few month's gap, the FSUIPC options did not show on the top in window mode. I've attached the log file. I am not running the beta version from Steam, although I might once this is sorted. I'd be grateful for advice. FSUIPC4.log
  4. Thanks, Pete. FSUIPC.ini attached. I agree that it could be caused by an addon. I have very few of these as FSX-SE has been newly installed on its own HDD on this PC. It could be hardware too, of course. It could be Steam related too I suppose. I have FSX boxed on a separate drive, so I can test the yoke, throttle quad, and rudder pedals in that sim. Regards, John FSUIPC4.ini
  5. This time, she did it all - uncommanded Spot view, Gear Down, Brakes set whilst on autopilot, totally hands off. . Log attached. Regards, John FSUIPC4.log
  6. Hmm. How interesting! The Gear Down/Up action was unrelated to my use of the elevator trim buttons on the yoke. Yes, it can happen hands off. I began to use the Offset SWord setting because it gave me finer iterations with some plane which I flew in the distant past, probably in FS2002. I just kept using that way of setting up trim with each new simulator that came along. I never had trouble with it. It just worked fine, so why change? I have changed now and it'll be interesting to see if using the normal FS control via FSUIPC will solve the problem. The antiskid brakes thing is a total mystery. Even if I wanted to I have no idea how to set that up. I couldn't find a switch or lever for cockpit activation. I'll run that particular problem past the C-47/DC3 chaps. Some test flying to do before I report back. Thanks again. John
  7. Thanks. The FSX controllers are all disabled. This time, (only the second occasion it's done this) when I landed the plane the brakes appeared to come on full without command from me. Whatever way this worked it stopped the plane dead in its tracks as if it landed on glue. Had I done this myself with differential brakes, I'd have tipped the old girl over on her nose and spoiled her day. Log attached with button/key and events log as requested. Seems some problem with toggle engine failure. John FSUIPC4.log

  9. I am running v. 4.974 in FSX-SE. Whn flying in the cruise the landing gear lowers itself - uncommanded by me. At exactly the same time the cockpit view switches itself to locked spot view. This happens with several different aircraft when flying on autopilot. I am completely hands off when it happens. All FSX controls have been checked umpteen times for both axes and buttons in normal and slew modes. There is nothing assigned to FSX control as far as I can see.. I use an FSUIPC axis setting for the HAT view. It works perfectly. Saitek pedals, CH Eclipse Yoke and GF-TQ6. I am at a loss to know as to what is causing this. It is very irritating although easily remedied. It seems only to happen once during a flight although I rarely fly longer than a couple of hours. I wonder if it could be time related. Whatever it is, I've not come across anything similar in 50 years of flightsimming! Regards, John
  10. Obscene frame rate indeed! It was a new install so I hadn't got round to checking that. Now, set to a more leisurely 28 fps. Applied Kosta's tweaks, extensive tests today with default scenery and aircraft and all is well, no more twitching control surfaces. Thanks again. You never fail!
  11. Thanks, Pete, I was doing my homework in the FAQ section. Disabling all the controllers in FSX-SE seems to have done the job. Although the yoke and rudder now respond correctly, the yoke movement in the VC is jerky, and similarly the elevators and ailerons in spot view. I was flying the default Cessna Skylane. It doesn't look good and in the past it has always meant problems. Anyways, so far so good. Thanks again. John
  12. MOVED FROM FAQ REFERENCE SUBFORUM! I have installed FSX-SE on a new HDD. I have P3DV4 on a separate HDD on the same PC. I have been using FSUIPC for years and like the many options and controls it provides. This is my set up: CH Eclipse yoke, GoFlight GF-TQ6 quadrant, Saitek rudder pedals. These have all been calibrated, and appear stable in W10 calibration. When I delete the FSX-SE axes and button controls for my three game controllers I can sometimes set the controls in FSUIPC normally. In flight though, either the yoke or the rudder, not usually the throttle controls, fail to obey instructions. Checking back to the FSX-SE default controls, I find that many of these have reinstalled - button and axis commands. I've rebooted and restarted FSX-SE each time deleting the defaullt commands till I am blue in the face. But the problem persists. The log file is below and I've attached the JoyScan.csv. I'd be grateful for advice.

  13. Thanks a bunch to you both. I do read the manual but not always closely enough I have to confess! Your encouragement is very welcome.
  14. Thanks. Problem was Windows calibration. Wonky. Not sure how it became wonky as I checked it along the way. I changed USB power management to off as advised. Now, I am mostly sorted. Not sure how to calibrate 5 flap detentes in the Maule with the non-detented axis lever. As it stands the flaps do a full up or down cycle using only half the available lever run. Thanks again for your help, Pete. John
  15. I've used FSUIPC in various iterations for years with FS2002 onwards. This is a new install of P3DV4.5 in Windows 10. The GF quadrant is not properly recognised. Of the 6 axes, only 5, 6 going left to right are seen at all. I can assign these to Mixture set and Flaps set, but the assignment is quickly 'forgotten'. Axes 1-4 are not recognised at all. The Ch Eclipse Yoke and Saitek rudder pedals are recognised and can be assigned in the usual way. I have attached the Joyscan.csv and the log file follows. I'd be grateful for advice. ********* FSUIPC5, Version 5.155 (27th March 2020) by Pete & John Dowson ********* Running inside Prepar3D v4 Module base=7FFCE3910000 Windows 10 Home 64 Bit reported as Build 18362, Release ID: 1903 (OS 10.0) Prepar3D.exe version = 4.5.13.32097 Reading options from "D:\Prepar3D v4\Modules\FSUIPC5.ini" Checking the Registrations now ...
