JoyNames confusion

Recommended Posts

OK, I have my JoyNames:

[JoyNames]
AutoAssignLetters=No
0=Saitek X45 Flight Controller
1=CH Pro Pedals USB
2=Saitek Pro Flight Yoke
3=Saitek Pro Flight Quadrant

so is the idea that I edit these such as

[JoyNames]
AutoAssignLetters=No
S=Saitek X45 Flight Controller
R=CH Pro Pedals USB
Y=Saitek Pro Flight Yoke
Q=Saitek Pro Flight Quadrant

or do I append these these lines to this section?

Then for my existing assignments, I edit them all accordingly

1=R2,20,C65966,0 to 
1=RY,20,C65966,0
and
0=2Z,256,F,65765,0,0,0 to
0=YZ,256,F,65765,0,0,0

?

The latter is better. Both will work provided the numbers don't change before you next load FS.

Sorry, I now see it isn't clear in my update notes. I will have to expand upon that when it gets into the documentation. Maybe I'll edit it now.

The numerical "assignment" lines are provided to show you the current setup in Windows. That might change if you unplug things and move them around, and they disappear if you load FS with one of the entries unplugged. The letter assignments do not disappear, however, and you would simply get a warning appended at the end of the unplugged line saying there was no joystick. Next time you loaded FS with it plugged in, the numeric line would reappear and the warning cleared. This works even if the number is then different.

Then for my existing assignments, I edit them all accordingly

No, you don't need to do that. It will be done for you automatically using the numeric assigns to translate. That's why you don't realy want to delete them.

Regards

Pete
