Will pov buttons work with fsuipc and FS 2002/2004


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have installed a registrated version of FSUIPC and I am very pleased what that program can do. It's really worth every penny I spend on the registerated version.

I hacked 2 joysticks and have about 20 programmble buttons.

I hacked only one pov hat switch per joystick because in fs 2002/2004 only one function can be attributed to the pov's of a joystick.

I've read the explanation in the FSUIPC user guide but it's not clear to me if I can use all the pov switches and attribute them to different function using fsuipc. If this is the case I could even have more programmble buttons.

Is this possible??

Since my joysticks are dismanteled and hacked I can't try this right away , I have to solder. So it would be nice to know before I start working on this if it will work.

Thanks,

Didier

POV hats either have 4 or 8 positions. If the POV is genuinely supported as a POV in Windows (see Game Controllers), then those 4 or 8 positions will be seen and encoded separately by FSUIPC.

Like FS2000 used to do, FSUIPC encodes the 8 positions with button numbers ranging from 32 to 39. If the POV only has 4 positions you will get alternate numbers. It is only since FS changed to using Direct Input that it has restricted the assignment of POVs to a single function.

Regards,

Pete
