PFCFXS quadrant problem


Recommended Posts

PFCFSX 3991, FSUIPC4 registered. Baron Style config. Fs9 Ini renamed correctly. Prop controls do not work in any FSX aircraft. Fine in Fs9. Throttle and Mixtures are OK. Keyboard control normal. What have I missed?

The PFC driver doesn't treat any axes differently from any others. Have you checked them in the PFC quadrant calibration dialogue?

I'll try to re-check them here -- I normally fly jets -- and get back tyo you.

Okay, I managed to rig up my quadrant with the Baron style twin prop quadrant, and tested it with the FSX Baron, and all the levers operated the correct controls just fine.

There's really very little difference between the FS9 and FSX versions of the PFC DLL -- just the interfacing to FSUIPC has changed, and FSUIPC4 handling the menu call itself to save PFCFSX being dependent directly upon SimConnect.

All I can suggest is that you Zip up your PFCFSX.INI file so I can try exactly the same here.

I should add that only the Throttle Levers work, Movement of both Prop and Mixture levers does nothing at all. All move correctly in PFC itself and the opening test confirms that all is well. I am using the DC-3 but the problem is identical in other aircraft. AutoMixture is disabled.

I have not, as yet, redid the .ini from scratch.

Attached are PFC and FSUIPC .ini and .log files which may help.

Aha! Here is the reason:

********* FSUIPC4, Version 4.00 by Pete Dowson *********

Version 4.00 was only available for a few hours because it was discovered that SimMarket were issuing keys with invalid expry dates, due to mistake in the new automation system.

By then they'd issued rather a lot of such keys, so rather than ask them to re-issue new ones I modified FSUIPC4 and got it out on the website by on the release Saturday afternoon. That was version 4.01. I put announcements here for folks to re-download it.

Since then 4.02 has been released, nearly a week ago, and yesterday 4.022 was made available here, in the FSX bits and bobs above.

Please please, whenever you get any sort of problem, please first see if there are later versions available!

In case you aren't sure there are always announcements here telling you which versions are current and supported.

Regards

Pete
