Question about Profiles.

Recommended Posts

I only just read this entry. There is no way a new aircraft (one with a different name) can ever be "automatically" added to a profile. It can only be done by user selection. Apart from the profile assigned, if any, to the current aircraft, none of the profile names are even known to FSUIPC until you use the selection facility in the options.

I think I have to emphasise what has now been said at least twice. delete the line assigning the aircraft to the cessna profile. I'm afraid FSUIPC does not currently offer an option to do this via the Options tabs -- I thought it an infrequent need and resources better spent elsewhere.

Regards,

Pete

I Apologyze for my bad english, but I hav'nt created manually this line.

I've reassign the axis with the fa18 loaded in FSX, but in the profile of cessna... :( fiirst mistake

I've done the mistake too, If I'm right, to have assign two time the axis, in general and in the cessna profile. Is is true ?

The best I have to do, I think is to delete and recrate the cessna profile with a cessna, and afterthat, if I can crate a profile for the fa18 with the fa 18 loaded, but only with the axins the buttum not already asigned !

I know. The line is created by assigning the aircraft to that profile via the Options checkbox and selection. When you load a new aircraft (one without a Profile assigned), and click on "Profile Specific", you get a list of the profiles which exist, and an entry to create a new one. You must have simply selected the Cessna one unintentionally. Too quick with the mouse button perhaps?

After deleting the line for this? So you've repeated the original mistake!

No. If the Cessna profile is okay, just remove the line that Andy and I pointed out, the one assigning your FA18 to the Cessna profile. THEN load FS and load the FA18, and create a new profile with whatever name you like. Do NOT click on "Cessna" again!

Thanks a lot for all ! Pete and Andy !

I've done that you tell me so deleting the line about the FA18 in the cessna profile and I've been able to create a new profile with the FA18.

It's Ok now.

Thanks again ;)

It's impossible to assign the brakes left ans right and it's impossible to calibrate : any value changes !

Sorry, but you'll need to explain a little more. I've no idea what you are talking about. I really can't help unless you say exactrly what you are doing and what you are trying to do, and what you think is not correct.

I tried to assign in "axis assignment" the axis of the brakes of my saitek rudder.

And it's impossible to calibrate any axis : joystick or rudder.

So you assigned these items okay? Where, in FS or in FSUIPC? And to which specific controls -- FS controls or Direct to Calibration?

What do you really mean by "impossible to calibrate"? Please explain. I cannot see what you see, you must tell me.

Did you never have anything assigned and calibrated before? Have you only just got these controls?

I assigned the axis in fsuipc in "send to fs as normal axis"

In calibration any values don't change when I move the joystic or the rudder,

I meet no problem with the cessna or the 747 pmdg. I assigned and calibrated those aircratf with the same options

Okay. That's the same as using FS for assignment. Please tell me the names of the controls you assigned -- there are several variants, each suited to different needs -- and some need different settings.

You would generally find it much less confusing and, in fact, more efficient, to assign "direct to fSUIPC calibation" unless you do not want to calibrate for some reason.

In calibration any values don't change when I move the joystic or the rudder,

Perhaps you need to show me the INI file too. But please concentrate on my comments above first.

I meet no problem with the cessna or the 747 pmdg. I assigned and calibrated those aircratf with the same options

Since it makes no difference to FSUIPC, this is exactly why I think you are still confusing yourself, as you did before. Let me see the INI file as you have it now.

If you only ever assign to FS controls, and use the same controls for every aircraft, you would probably find it much easier to assign in FS itself. You can still calibrate in FSUIPC. I've no idea why you are trying to make things more complex. Do you need different controls for each aircraft? If you use the same controls for each, why are you assigning the axes "profile specific"? You would be better assigning them once and for all, non-specific, don't you think?

You have these default assignments, to your yoke only by the look of it:

Why two axes both for ailerons?

And you have default calibrations and mappings for those and a lot more. How?

The Cessna assignments seem to be a mixture of FS controls and direct controls. why mixed? Also there are assignments for a non-existent device 2.

The 747 controls even more so, but with some real oddities: You appear to have selected the older axes not the current "Axis ..." controls. Also it has assignments for a device 2 which doesn't appewar to exist according to the scanned device list!

[Axes.74710]

0=0X,256,F,65695,0,0,0 Aileron set (this is the older control, not the current FS "Axis" control)

1=0Y,256,F,65694,0,0,0 elevator set (")

2=0Z,256,D,22,0,0,0

3=0U,256,D,4,0,0,0

6=1Y,256,D,8,0,0,0

7=1R,256,F,65696,0,0,0 Rudder Set (this is the older control, not the current FS control)

8=2X,256,F,65697,0,0,0 Throttle Set (")

9=2Y,256,F,65767,0,0,0 Prop pitch set (for a 747? Huh?)

10=2R,256,F,65773,0,0,0 Mixture Set (?)

The FA18 assignments are all to FS controls:

[Axes.FA18]

0=0X,256,F,65763,0,0,0 Ailerons

1=0Y,256,F,65762,0,0,0 Elevator

2=0Z,256,F,65765,0,0,0 Throttle

3=0U,256,F,65762,0,0,0 Elevator

4=0V,256,F,65763,0,0,0 Ailerons

5=1R,256,F,65764,0,0,0 Rudder

Seems you have two ailerons and two elevators, but no brakes assigned. I think you've made a bit of a mess, do you see? Without assigning "direct to FSUIPC" you won't be getting FSUIPC to arbitrate between the pairs of controls, so they will conflict. I expect this is your problem.

Quite honestly, you seem to be making more and more of a mess. Perhaps you could epxlain what it is you are trying to do. Why all these differing assignments? How many control devices do you have -- only two seem to be connected, so what it the problem with doing basic assignments just the once and use them for all aircraft?

In the end I suspect you'd be better off deleting your INI file and starting again.

Pete

I've one joystick noname and one yoke saitek with a thottle saitek and a throttle propeler mixture saitek and witch are not connected at this moment

I will retart properly with a new ini file, it will be better !

The best way is "send to fsuipc calibration" ?

No rudder really then?

If you don't leave them all connected, then it will be best, BEFORE assigning anything, to select the joy letter mode of identifying devices -- there's a chapter on this in the User Guide. If you don't do this then things will certainly go wrong at times -- the numbers used are assigned by Windows and are only fixed whilst the device is connected.

The best way is "send to fsuipc calibration" ?

Yes, it is easier, less confusing, and more efficient. The FS controls are supported because there are some add-on aircraft which need them.

Best to make a default set of assignments suited to your devices, and ONLY make profile-specific assignments if really necessary. This is usually when switching from, for example, prop controls (with mixture and prop pitch lervers) to jets (with extra throttle controls or things like steering tiller, reversers and spoiler), or to helicopter controls (completely different) or maybe yoke for Boeing airliners and joystick for Airbus. Set the defaults initially to suit the aircraft type you fly mostly.

Pete
