CH Yoke and the assigned PTT


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Just wondering whether anyone else has experienced the following issue;

Everytime I press the assigned PTT on my CH yoke, FS9 and all programs associated with it crash. I can use the keyboard assigned PTT, but if I use the CH Yoke one I have the problem.

It seems to be happening after installing the latest version of FSUIPC, but this may only be a co-incidence. I have reset the PTT assigned button within FSUIPC and SB3 but still have the problem.

Hoping someone else may have had this issue, as it would be good to use the button on the yoke.

Thanks,

Sean

And how, exactly, are you programming this PTT? Have you made sure the button isn't also assigned in FS?

What programs outside FS are associated with it and crash?

What do you mean by "the latest version of FSUIPC" please? Everyone says that, but it is meaningless really as they mean "the latest one I saw" -- sometimes it has been a year or more old! :-(

Tell me about assigning buttons in SB3 please -- if SB3 can read PTT buttons directly, why are you using FSUIPC?

Regards

Pete

Hi Pete,

Thanks for the quick response.

I have been doing some detective work this morning (Oz time) and found that in FS9 I had my button 2 assigned to F10 (Open Kneeboard), in SB3 my PTT is keyboard '\' and in FSUIPC I had button 2 assigned to '\'.

I would say this is causing my problem with some sort of conflict.

FSUIPC v3.60 registered

FS9 with MS update

I have AS6, ACARS, SB3 and FS9 all running when it dies. Anyway problem now fixed, so I do thank you for your reply Pete. I'm sure that this problem was in no way associated with FSUIPC.

in SB3 my PTT is keyboard '\' and in FSUIPC I had button 2 assigned to '\'.

Please assign the button to the PTT on/off controls in the FSUIPC dropdown -- "on" when pressed, "off" when released. These controls (called PTT Transmit On (SB3,RW,AVC) and PTT Transmit Off (SB3,RW,AVC)) do not use keystrokes but direct commands to SB and they will be mucvh more reliable and efficient. They will also work across to WideFS clients without any additional work or parameters. For SB3 there's also controls for Private Voice PTT.

Regards,

Pete
