Rudder pedals v FSUIPC?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello Peter

Can you help please?

I'm using FS9 + Prosim Jetstream 737 + Saitek Combat Pedals.

The rudder pedals don't work for the first time after starting FS. If I open FSUIPC/Joystick calibration and operate the pedals they are seen and they work after doing this but not before.

This applies to whether I'm on the ground or in the air. (Yes not a very straight run when in the take off roll.

This maybe nothing to do with FSUIPC, but as I said it is always ok after I have checked the setting in FSUIPC?!! I hope that makes sense?

I've checked in FS own assignments and there are no cross controls. I also use a tiller and this is calibrated through FSUIPC too.

If you have any thoughts on this-thank you in advance.

Regards

A W

Sounds like they are asleep. All going into FSUIPC options will do is re-scan all connections, just as it will be doing in any case when you first start FS. You should find they 'wake up' if you waggle them several times before starting. But also check the Windows power management on all the USB hub devices in Windows Device Manager. By default Windows limits the power to devices making them unresponsive.

And only with that one aircraft, or all aircraft?

How and where you ASSIGN rather than calibrate is more important. And do you have joysticks turned OFF in FS, or only de-assigned?
