Cannot delete CH Pro Pedals Axis and have it work in FSUIPC


Recommended Posts

I have read the faq and searched for this the best i can but I cannot find this exact issue.

I hvae a Saitek Pro Pilot Yoke and throttles. I also have the CH pro pedals.

This issue cropped up on the last install of windows 7 (UAC off) running FS9 as admin etc.

I am also using the latest version of FSUIPC 3.99(something 2) registered version of course.

i want to put all my settings for fs9 into FSUIPC except for the hat button on the Saitek Yoke.

The thing is this worked before.

The problem i am having is in the FS9 settings panel the CH Pro Pedals keep coming back in Axis assignments. The settings are also the reverse of what I need to. So the brakes are full on when I start up FS9.

Thinking I might have a computer issue I just FULLY reinstalled windows 7 64 bit (and ran all the service packs and updates)

then installed a FRESH copy of fs9 ran the patch. Installed FSUIPC. registered both that and widefs.

I went into the FS9 assigments and deleted every keypress and every axis assignment.

then it happed again!

I exited.. and lo and behold CH pro Pedals Axis assignments are back!!!

so I delete them again. I close out of FS9. I reopen fs9..

the CH pro pedals axis assignments are back for rudder and toe brakes.

Now I know tha if I configure fsuipc to do all the button presses and axis that CH pro pedals assigment in fs9 will conflict with fsuipc.

How do I get that CH pro pedals FS9 assigments deletion to stick?

I've never had this problem until I updated fsupic 3.99 recently. (I know fsuipc and those settings arent related)

the weird thing is that it followed me through a 100% vanilla install of fs9 and fsuipc. i CANNOT rid myself of the CH pro pedals assigmment.

Any help would be appreciated. Ive searched and I might not be searching for the right thing or calling it the right thing in my search but I cannot find this issue.

Which is strange because from what I have seen with a fresh install this should be REALLY commong.

Not easy, because FS has a habit of re-assigning things unless you stop it altogether. Why can't you assign everything in one place or the other?

The problem i am having is in the FS9 settings panel the CH Pro Pedals keep coming back in Axis assignments.

FS will always automatically assign to those joysticks it thinks have been newly connected. So it sounds like your CH pedals keep disconnecting and reconnecting?

There is absolutely no way that any version of FSUIPC can make FS assign things automatically!! It just isn't possible. FS will always automatically assign anything it thinks you just connected, so it sounds like a connection problem.

the weird thing is that it followed me through a 100% vanilla install of fs9 and fsuipc. i CANNOT rid myself of the CH pro pedals assigmment.

Because it it nothing to do with the installation of either, or even of Windows. It is to do with that device and its USB connection.

Not really. Most devices stay connected unless you physically disconnect them. Maybe you are connecting them through an unpowered hub, or have Windows USB power management set to switch them off?

Anyway, it is better to assign everything, incuding the hat, in one or the other.

OK I am going to go check where my Pro Pedals are attached to. I read enough of the threads to figure out the install of FSUIPC doesnt affect fs9 joystick configuration. I will investigate and edit this thread if i solve it.

Thanks

Okay. If all else fails there is one other solution which ma work, but it is a little more drastic.

FS gets information about how to assign device axes and so on from a file called DEVICES.CFG (also in some versions DEVICES2.CFG), which you'll find in the main FS folder. You could try renaming that, or even finding the relevant CH entry in it and editing just that section. It's a text file --- edit it with Notepad, not Wordpad.
