FSUIPC 3.X cfg file in FSUIPC 4.X

Recommended Posts

I searched this to no avail. Can I move my FS9 FSUIPC Config File into my FSX Fsuipc?

Yes. some of the [General] parameters won't apply, but they won't do any harm.

What if the USB device addresses are different? Or do you recommend I just reprogram all the switches..

Certainly, because FSUIPC4 uses DirectInput for Axis Assignment, the axis identities may change. X and Y are always okay, but the others are often assigned slightly differently. But I wouldn't recommend ditching and re-programming. The differences should be quickly determined, if indeed you get any.

Actual joystick numbers for USB devices only usually get changed when you unplug them and re-pug them in differently, OR when you change the version of Windows (eg XP to Vista). That sort of thing would affect FSUIP3 and FSUIPC4 alike. To get around that both FSUIPC3 and FSUIPC4 have new facilities in the updated versions these last two months or so to identify joysticks be an assign letter (A-Z) and assign the letters to numbers via the joystick name known to Windows. Details of all that are in the CHANGES documentation in the Updates announcement.
