FSPUIC assignment problem


Recommended Posts

I run FS9. Recently I updated to FSUIPC3.74 (registered) and decided it was a good time to change some of my assignments. I removed all previous assignments, and made new assignments of buttons and axes using "Send to FS as normal axis".

All button assignments are OK; flaps etc. work. Axes assigned #1 Throttle, aileron, elevator, mixture, prop; #0 rudder, differential brakes. When I go into Joystick calibration, the numbers remain static; and none of the controls work on the plane. When I tried to see what might be the problem, I found that Sensitivity had reverted to low, although I had set to maximum. There appears to be no way it will remain at maximum unless I assign the axis in FS itself.

I have read though Assignment and Calibration many times, and there does not seem to be anything that I have missed. I also tried Map to 4 throttles in Calibration but again there was no response. While I am happy to revert to direct FS assignment, I note on p. 35 "the best way forward is to....program all buttons and axes in FSUIPC".

Any help would be appreciated. John

Neither sensitivity/null zone sliders nor assignments in FS are at all relevant to FSUIPC's axis assignments. If you elect to send the axis values to FS as normal FS controls it bypasses all of that. In fact you should really disable the FS joystick to be sure of no interference.

While I am happy to revert to direct FS assignment, I note on p. 35 "the best way forward is to....program all buttons and axes in FSUIPC".

I find it hard to imagine what you could be doing wrong. What EXACT controls are you actually assigning? Care to show your INI files [Axes] section so I can see? The equivalent to the FS assignments are those called "Axis .... set" in the drop down list.

There is also the "direct to FSUIPC" option which uses no FS controls whatsoever. Either will work fine, but the latter would bypass some of the more advanced cockpits which may need them, especially Airbus panels providing fly-by-wire.

Thanks Pete for your reply. The INI file had no [Axes]. Your reference to "Axis..set" in dropdown list made me realize that I had taken the change in axis input against the appropriate axis X, Y, R etc as setting it. I had bypassed the illustration on p.37 by misunderstanding it as being only for more than one axis on a control. I have now calibrated, [Axes] are in INI, and the controls are working.

With regard to sensitivity, it was what I had done using earlier versions and the reference on p.41 that it was useful to set maximum sensitivity to get maximum benefit. Once again, thanks for jogging my aging grey matter.

John.
