    Weird throttle calibration problem

    excellent, thanks for info. Glad it could be sorted out ! A plane needing that full range and a Sync user, probably a rare combination :-). I'll post some instructions in the FSLabs forum after the new versions are out. Thanks and keep up the great work ! Mike

    Weird throttle calibration problem

    Both ! But that's only in the A320, axis logging in flight mode works in all other planes including the PMDG 777. Seems FSLabs has suppressed the logging ? that´s fine, I also don't have that much time until the weekend. For now I have just copied the 777 sync line to the A320, that gives the best results so far. There are some threads in the FSLabs forum currently left at "FSUIPC calibration' doesn't work". Besides my setup, would be also nice to post a solution/instruction there maybe 1-3% was a bit optimistic, I looked at it again, over the range it's also around 5-6% occasionally. But thanks for info, I didn't know that, always thought real throttles are perfectly synchronous. Anyway, the idea came up after seeing a 'levers not in sync' message in the A320 display. Apparently one lever was in the detend already, the other not. Unfortunately my throttle doesn't have physical detends, so I thought I try the Sync function. Of course one can widen the detend zones in the A320 config, but I didn't want to do that too much. And the Sync function works REALLY well, in the PMDG 777 it's great ! Ok, will do that !

    Weird throttle calibration problem

    I have enabled Axis logging, and Console window, but I do not see any values appearing in the console window when I move the throttles. Do I have to set anything additionally ? Anyway, have updated to 5.122 now and started again. So I press SET for both throttle1 and 2 in the Idle and Max position. I can observe IN and OUT changing more or less simultaneusly over my entire range -16213 to 16317. Looks good. Now with both throttle 1 and 2 in Idle Position I press sync. This time it writes 0/129 in the file, not 12/23. From then on OUT is in disorder, doesn't make sense to store anymore Sync values. Just an update. With any other planes the Axis logging works, I see the values in the Console Window. But not with the A320.

    Weird throttle calibration problem

    Hi Pete, >> Well, what is the point of moving only one throttle? just for testing purpose and to make the behaviour more clear. After each sync click I look in the ini-file again Throttle 1 and 2 at idle. Sync stores 12/23. Now I move only throttle 2 and would expect to see the second value increase. It doesn't, up to the medium position I still get 12/23. During all that IN and Out values change symmetrical. So four Sync clicks while moving the throttle from idle to medium gets four times 12/23. If, again for testing purpose, I keep throttle 2 at idle and move throttle 1 up to medium position, I get 12/23, 34/23, 54/23, 76/23 It is somewhat beyond me why Throttle 1 should behave differently then Throttle2. If without Sync they increase thrust simultaneously ? Anyway, will check the Axis logging as you describe it.

    Weird throttle calibration problem

    It really puzzles me. I have both levers in Idle position and sync reads 12/23.Just for testing, then I move only Throttle 2 up to the medium position and Sync still reads 12/23. Then above the medium position up to the max position it begins to increase up to 12/128. If I do the same with Throttle1, Sync values increase linear over the entire range. Even with Airbus specialities in mind or FSLabs custom stuff, it still doesn't make sense. I'll double check the throttles are deactivated, not only unassigned in P3D Mike

    Weird throttle calibration problem

    Hi Pete, yes, works fine in the PMDG over the entire range. No erratic behaviour at all. Now, in the FSLabs, if I remove the Sync line, it works over the entire range as well, of course with the levers out oy sync discrepancies. But no erratic movements. For me it looks like the sync function introduces the problem. If you look at the Sync values for the A320, for the first four values covering the range from idle to approx. middle position, the value remains at 23 for throttle2. From medium to full you see big increments to finally catch up with throttle 1 at max. position. Such as if Throttle2 would be still in the 0 to 16383 range, and Throttle 1 in -16383 to 16384 range. Yes, so far I have only assigned throttle and tiller in FSUIPC. Both are disabled in P3D. For the other axes I have Brunner FFB equipment, they feed directly into P3D via their own driver. So aileron, elevator, etc. are disabled in P3D and not used in FSUIPC. Ok, will update this evening.

    Weird throttle calibration problem

    Hi Pete, bit too early celebration. Now with UseAxisControlsForNRZ=Yes I get the full range -16384 to 16383. Just the Sync function leads to weird results. I just do the same syncronous lever movement and Press Sync at various positions. When I do the same in the PMDG 777 and in the FSLabs A320 I get this : PMDG 777: SyncSlopeThrottle2=9/10,21/22,36/36,53/54,68/68,80/80,92/91,105/104,116/116,127/128 FSLabs A320 : SyncSlopeThrottle2=12/23,34/23,54/23,76/23,90/52,105/83,127/128 Without FSUIPC calibration, moving the thrust levers simulaneously leads to thrust discrepancy around 1-3%. Now it is huge, maybe there is something interfering the Sync results in the A320 ? The obvious solution, copy over the PMDG 777 line to the A320 block. Anyway, I attach the fsuipc.ini Mike FSUIPC5.ini

    Sorry, I am not that language perfect, occasionally need a bit longer to understand english manual text. Thanks for making it more clearer ! I was not aware I could store it aircraft specific. Good to learn how powerful FSUIPC is ! Anyway, works fine now !

    Hi Pete, ouch, sorry, I typed the previous message not from my FS PC, so I forgot the ini file. It's attached now. Thanks again for the info, also regarding the resolution. So probably I should define the detends now and check how it handles during flight. I'm a little bit lost after reading the manual excerpt you posted, but will try to understand it. That way, would it also then take the Sync values into account ? Mike FSUIPC5.ini

    Weird throttle calibration problem

    Hi Pete, first of all thanks for the insight. I think I have understood the problem now it's the FSLabs A320. They have their own calibration tool to define the detend zones. They also have a range display. Without FSUIPC calibration, apparently with the standard -16384 to 16383 range, I see the range between -1.000 (idle) and 1.000 (max). Between this range the detend zones are defined. Now if I use the FSUIPC calibration (I understood I have to to get the Sync functionality), I get a range of 0 to 16383, as you mentioned. Now in the FSLabs tool I see the range between 0 and 1.000. Consequently the levers in the plane are in the middle and not at idle. I understand I can now redefine the detend zones, set the Idle range from now between -1.00 and -0.97 to 0.00 to 0.03. I am just wondering, if I won't loose half of the resolution for that now. From -1.00 to 1.00 gives a Delta of 2.00. From 0 to 1.00 gives a delta of just 1.00. So I think in that case the Addon would need -16384 to 16383 for the idle to max range. I hope it is understandable with my "German" english. Mike

    Weird throttle calibration problem

    But now if my hardware thrust levers are in idle position, the levers in the airplanes are at 50% forward thrust. That is not intended. I just want the full range -16200 (levers at idle) to 16200 (max) to stay like that in the plane. My hardware levers at idle and levers in the plane at idle. How can I achieve that and still use the Sync functionality ? Mike
  12. Hi, I have a strange problem when calibrating my Throttletek 737 Throttle. The levers are not really synchronous, so I wanted to use the Sync function in FSUIPC. So I removed axis assignments in P3D and assigned in FSUIPC, and used 'send direct to FSUIPC calibration'. On the Calibration page (with no reverse zone) I just click Set for both Idle and Max position. Values from -16200 to 16200. Then I moved both levers synchronously and repeatedly pressed the Sync button. So far so good. Now if I move the levers (that's what I also see in the Sim) all is well for the Max position. The calibration page displays In at around 16200, Out at around 16200. But at Idle it shows In -16200 and Out it shows zero (0). See attached screenshot. So the entire range from 0 to -16200 is missing or got lost. What am i doing wrong ? Mike

    6.0a Communicator problem

    Thanks for your information ! In the meantime all is working . The confusing error message at the start of P3D is not from MyTraffic. I found out, it comes from EZDOK. Apparently they have a 50 seconds timeout when P3D is still not active with Simconnect. With My Traffic now P3D needs longer than 50 seconds to start. So all OK now, sorry to bother you. Mike
  14. Hi, I'm a new MT User and have a strange problem with the Communicator. I went to through all the necessary steps, but when starting P3D 3.1, I get an error saying sinconnect.cfg not found after 50 seconds and instructs me to enter the path again. Which I have done already several times. If I open Communicator, the path to P3D 3.1 is empty. If I click Manage Prepar3D V2/V3, it enters the correct path automatically. If I click OK, I get 'Settings saved'. Below that, manage simobjects.cfg is active and comes up correctly. I can store it and when I open again, it says the entry is already there. So the path looks OK. Now, no matter if I do the second step at this time or not, if I close Communicator and open it, the path to P3D is empty again. I have set MyTraffic_communicator.exe already to "Run as Administrator", but this did not help. Operating System is Windows 8.1. UAC is disabled. P3D 3.1 and My Traffic are both installed outside the Program Files folder. Where exactly does the folder info get stored ? What am I doing wrong ? Mike
