axis assignment of Saitek levers

Recommended Posts

Hello Pete,

 

I am helping a friend to get on his way with FSX. He recently bought a Saitek Yoke set and FSUIPC,

When assigning the different axis, one I cannot get to work properly. I am a bit desparate and am therefore seeking your help.

The mixture goes from -16380 to 0 and no further, whatever I try. The other axis work fine. 

I have the fsuipc4 file enclosed. I have used my own file as a basis.

Could you please help.

Hi Pete

I am steadily going round the bend trying to get FSUIPC to work with my FS9!  I have browsed through all the forums I can find and nothing seems to work.  I am running FS9 on Windows 7 with a registered copy of FSUIPC 3.999z5. I have a Saitek Pro Flight yoke and three axis quadrant and the aircraft I am trying to programme is a 737 with a Kreuzer panel.  I have downloaded the SimSamurai tutorial and tried to follow it but that seems to be for CH multi-throttle. I have tried setting the axes as specified but the throttles jump up and down and so do the flaps.  Could you please direct me to where I can find specific info on programming for this set up.  I should be most grateful

Thank you,

Malcolm

Well, to start with you have conflicting assignments:

 

[Axes.Twin engine piston aircraft]

0=0X,256,D,7,0,0,0 Left brake

1=0Y,256,D,8,0,0,0 right brake

2=0Z,256,D,14,0,0,0 Mixture 2

3=0R,256,F,65696,0,0,0 Rudder Set

4=1X,33,F,65695,0,0,0 Aileron Set

5=1Y,1,F,65694,0,0,0 Elevator Set

6=1Z,256,D,4,0,0,0 Throttle

7=1U,256,D,5,0,0,0 Prop Pitch

8=1V,256,D,6,0,0,0 Mixture

9=1P,0,F,66416,0,0,0  Pan view

10=2X,256,F,65820,0,0,0 Throttle1 Set

11=2Y,256,F,65821,0,0,0 Throttle 2 Set

12=2Z,256,D,17,0,0,0 Proppitch1

13=2R,256,F,65764,0,0,0 Axis Rudder Set

14=3X,256,F,65924,0,0,0 PropPitch2 Set

15=3Y,256,F,65919,0,0,0 Mixture1 Set

16=3Z,1,D,14,0,0,0 Mixture 2

 

You have 4 Mixture assignments -- a generic one controlling all engines, two direct ones for engine 2 and an indirect one (i.e. FS control) for engine 1. So both mixture settings will be affected by 2 axes each!

Similarly for PropPitch and Throttle. Also worrying are two different assignment methods for Rudder. That would give problems too.

 

When you say "the mixture goes from -16380 to 0 and no further" that makes no sense in any case. Where are you seeing this, in assignments or in calibration?

 

I think before you go any further you need to sort out the mish mash of axis assignments. Maybe delete them all and start again, mught be easier that way.

That's a sign either of very bad equipment, or more likely multiple conflicting assignments. You could also try just using FS9 assignments first, because if you can't get that far there's really no point going further.

The User Manual for FSUIPC is always the best place. Try that.

 

Additionally you should be using the currently supported version of FSUIPC for FS9 -- 3.999z8.

 

Regards

Pete
