Lost mixture control


Recommended Posts

I am using FSUIP on a Homebuilt computer using an AMD 64 3400 chip with Windows XP Home, FS9, and the latest version of FSUIP. I have the CH Yoke USB, Pedals USB, and just added the CH Throttle Quadrant. I was using FSUIP to calibrate the throttles and suddenly lost the Engine 1 mixture control. It now doesn't provide any information in FSUIP. I've used the calibration tool from CH (CH Manager) and it shows everything working and in FS9 assignments the mixture control shows up and seems to work.

Any help? I'll be glad to provide more information.

I'm using the registered version of FSUIP.

It's actually FSUIPC, and you should always report the version number please. If it isn't the latest (3.53 or later at present), then update it first.

Calibrating throttles will not affect the mixture. It sounds like you've calibrated the Reverser, which, as documented, uses the Mixture control by default -- though not the "Engine 1 Mixture Control" but the generic Mixture control, for all engines. If you fly props as well as jets you need to ensure that the option to have the reverser activated for jets only is selected.

The only other possibility, which is nothing to do with FSUIPC at all, is that you have the Sensitivity in FS turned right down on that axis. Make sure the slider to well to the right.

By the way, if you get yourself in a muddle with FSUIPC options and settings you only have to delete the FSUIPC.INI file, or edit it and delete just the Joystick calibration sections, and start again.
