How many devices?

Recommended Posts

How many HID Devices can i uses with FSUIPC and FSX? Its possible to use more then 10 HID Devices without problems?

Yes, certainly. As far as I know there's no specific limits for FSX. With FSUIPC assignments and button scanning only 16 joystick-type devices are handled (numbered 0 to 15), as its implementation is based on the original Windows joystick API (as used in earlier versions of FS, before DirectInput). This doesn't include Go-Flight modules which aren't part of those 16 as far as FSUIPC is concerned. Nor does it include devices connected to WideFS networked PCs, each of which can have a further 16 joystick type devices supplying button presses.

There's also no imposed limit on HID devices which can be handled by Lua plug-ins using the COM library.
