FSUIPC and USB 3


Recommended Posts

Hi all:

I just moved up to a new Dell portable, mem speed 1333 mhz, 16,343 mb memory, cpu speed 1806 mhz, i7 cpu, q840 @ 1.87 ghz, windows 7 home prem 64 bit. This runs FSX real good.

OK, just purchased CH products....yoke, pro pedals, throttle quad and installed the CH Control v4.51.

If I run FSX without the CH Control Manager, the yoke and pedals will work fine in the mission I tested this out in.

I have the yoke plugged into a USB 2, the pedals plugged into a USB 3, and the quad plugged into a USB 3.

When I go into the control manager, the yoke calibrates ok, the test/cal does not see the pedals in USB 3, and the test/cal does not see the quad in USB 3.

The support at CH told me to run direct with FSX without using the control manager.....ridiculous solution. How would I use the products the way I want to use them ?

I am not getting much help from AVSIM.....I think the control manager software is the problem with the USB 3 because the pedals work good when direct to FSX and also if I move them to the USB 2, they work under the control manager.

My question is this.....if I purchase FSUIPC and throw away the CH Control Manager, will the FSUIPC work with these products plugged into the USB 3 ports.

I know that the USB 3 ports are working because the mouse works in every one of them as does a storage stick.

How strange. USB 3 is backwards compatible with USB 2 and USB 1. Are you sure the USB 3 facilities aren't disabled in your PC's BIOS settings?

Oh, right. So they've got some USB incompatibility in the Control Manager? I have no idea how they managed that. They must be taking some short cuts and not following the correct protocols.

If FS can see them, so will FSUIPC, because it uses the Windows joystick interfaces. It does not use any USB interface directly. It cannot even distinguish between a Game Port joystick and a USB joystick, let alone USB's 1, 2 and 3.
