Setting the throttle on my Logitech ExtremePro 3D


Recommended Posts

I have installed and registered a copy of FSUIPC4 for use with an Eaglesoft Citation X product. I am trying to configure the throttle settings in FSUIPC4 but the application does not recognize the slider throttle even though it recognizes the joystick itself an all the buttons on it.

Help please :)

Does FSX recoginse the slider? Does Windows' own Game controllers recognise it? FSUIPC4 uses exactly the same Windows facilities to read these things as both of those.

Maybe you have installed some Logitech software which intercepts the slider to program it for itself. Have you checked?

Yes. It works fine in FSX and MS Flight

Yes it does.

The Logitech software for calibration is installed and working but has posed no issues before the install of the recent add'on's (Eaglesoft Citation X and Beechjet 400A and FSUIPC). By way of troubleshooting, I tried flying a plane I know works (stock FSX King Air) and the throttle works as it should.

Everything is now working. To get FSUIPC4 to recognize the throttle slider, I ended up re-installing drivers from Logitech's website. This worked although I am not sure why as the joystick worked fine in Flight and with a stock FSX aircraft.

Indeed a puzzle considering the functions used to read the axis values are identical between FSX and FSUIPC4. Not sure about "Flight" though. That's a different matter.

But it certainly did sound like a driver issue.
