Problem Logitech G13 and FSUIPC


Recommended Posts

Hello all I apologize if my English is not perfect because I'm Italian. I recently purchased the Logitech g13 gamepad for use with flight simulator. But I have this problem: the gamepad is recognized as a keyboard from the program FSUIPC and not as a joystick and therefore will not let me to use the function "button+ keypress" which for me is essential to use the gamepad how can I fix this? Any advice is welcome, thank you all in advance

If it is seen by Windows as a keyboard, it will be seen by everything, including FSUIPC as a keyboard. Program it in the Key assignment tab of FSUIPC.

I use the key assignement but with aircraft like the pmdg737 I do not work as I do?

Whether you assign controls to keys or to buttons makes no different to what actual controls you have at your disposal. The PMDG 737NGX is rather different from default FSX aircraft and has its own controls for almost every aspect of its operation.

You can assign keys to the special control numbers used in the PMDG 737NGX. You need to refer to the ".h" file provided in the PMDG 737NGX SDK for the appropriate control numbers. And you need to use a recent version of FSUIPC -- version 4.86 is now the earliest supported and was released today.

in essence, how can I assign them to my logitech? sorry but I can not understand

When you used the information in PMDG's ".h" file to work out the number for the control you want to use, you assign it to watever keypress from your GamePad you want to use, within the drop-down list in the jey assignments tab in FSUIPC. You'll see the item at the top of the list, it is entitled "<custom control>". select that and enter the control number.

If you are still confused I suggest you ask over in the PMDG support foruum. I don't use the PMDG aircraft myself. I can answer questions about FSUIPC but not a lot about PMDG add-ons.

ok because I did not understand how I do I try to ask the PMDG?

Er, sorry, ask "the PMDG" what? Please re-phrase this question as it makes no sense to me.

I do not understand why the program can not recognize him as a joystick.

Keyboards are NOT the same as Joysticks! If your device behaves as a keyboard how can it be seen as a joystick? You make no sense!

Would be much easier :)

Why would it be easier? assigning the special PMDG controls to key presses or to buttons is IDENTICAL! There is no difference! One cannot be easier than the other, why do you think this?

Hi Pete,

I have the same problem and even bigger one ,every time I use G13 with FS it deletes. All modules and restarts fsx to an older date with most modules deleted and some aircraft missing. My keyboard freezes , and only couple of the G13 keys are operational .(GSX control)

I have tried programming with FSUIPC but frankly couldn't . It is recognized by W7 64 and by Fsx. Could please guide me on how to program via FSUIPC .
