I couldn't see this issue referenced in the forum.
I am using Profiles, for the first time, they're cool! I am running FSUIPC v4.60a, registered. My thoughts were to create an FSX generic profile for single props, dual props, twin jets. Then make specific profiles for variations of -say- twin jets, for the likes of Level D's B763, which has the opportunity to do more with custom key assignments (more than the generic FSX stuff).
I created so far my generic single prop and dual jet, and am now trying to assign a new profile to the Level D B763 twin jet for the "Axis Assignment" tab. However, the checkbox for "Profile Specific?" is already checked and grayed out. The axis assignments appear to be the same as I set for the generic jet twin. (However, I am able to access the same checkbox on the "Buttons + Switches" tab.)
Is FSUIPC seeing somehow that the Level D B763 is a "twin jet", and so just grabbing the predefined assignment for "twin jet"? With no ability to cancel out of it and then create a customized dual jet one?
I hope I'm making sense here. If not, let me try again. :)
Edit: I just tried the PMDG MD11, and am still getting the same issue above, where the FSUIPC Axis Assignment "Profile Specific" checkbox is checked and grayed out. Once again, the axis appears to be the twin jet one (just going by the mapping between my joystick (2) levers and the functions they are controlling. Is there perhaps a larger class of "jet" (regardless of engines) at play here perhaps? I will need to find a way to re-assign my joystick levers for the Tri-jet. Obviously, going back to a string of aircraft specific settings will work too. Thanks, Bruce.
