Ruahrc Posted April 21, 2006 Report Share Posted April 21, 2006 I just got a CH yoke, pedals, and throttle (whopee!) and am trying to get them all calibrated up in FS. I am using the latest FSUIPC 3.558. What is happening is that I can't seem to be able to set the elevator axis using the "Joystick Calibration" dialog. Here's what I'm doing; Go to the "axis assignments" tab. Move the Yoke forward/back, until it is detected. Select "send direct to FSUIPC calibration" Check the first box, and select "Elevator" from there I go to the Joystick Calibration tab: Press "Set" under the Elevator heading Here is where I run into trouble. Instead of setting it up straightforward like I was able to do with the Ailerons, Rudder, Brakes, etc.- I run into problems. I try to set a center null zone first using the centre "set" buttons. That works okay. Then I pull the stick all the way back, and press the "min" set button. The "IN" box reads 254 or 255, like it should. I press the min "set" button and instead of assigning the value of 254 to the min box, it puts the value 254 into each the Min, and both Centre boxes. I then push the stick all the way forward and the "IN" box reads 5 (or whatever), and if I try to press the max "set" button, there is no effect. I can press the reset button and try this again using different ordering (set the min first, or set the max first, etc) but eventually I press one of the "set" buttons and it overwrites my center values, throwing the calibration off. The "out" box is recording correct (but unusable, if that makes any sense) values according to the listed min/centre/max values, but since those are messed up it pegs at either 0 or 16384 or -16384. I was having the exact same type of problem using my old version of FSUIPC (3.5.3) but it was happening with both the elevator and aileron axis. I was able to do the aileron axis okay this time with 3.558 but the elevator is messed up. Do you have any ideas what is going on? I'm using the USB versions of the control devices btw. I am just using the buillt-in WinXP drivers for these devices (plug'n'play, autodetect) and have not installed CH's control software (I would prefer to do it all in FS and FSUIPC) Ruahrc PS, I plan on making some custom button/lever assignments for different aircraft that I own. Naturally I would take advantage of the "aircraft specific" feature for this. My question is, is this tied to the "title=" entry in the aircraft.cfg? And would I be able to manually manipulate the fsuipc.ini file to be able to copy/paste these assignments for multiple aircraft titles? I ask because for example if I have a particular aircraft that has 5 liveries, each would have a unique title and would thus require me to set FSUIPC up with each livery, unless I could manually copy/paste previously defined assignments and just change around the "title=" part or something in fsuipc.ini. But this may be the subject of a new topic just to keep things orderly (and once I get past this current problem) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
