Auto Brake set up with rotary switch


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I have a rotary switch wired x6 and have configured through fsuip all went well ! (BUO836X)

 

However when I run FS9 and switch the autobrake max 1,2 and 3 work, however as soon as I switch to off or rto the flaps start changing erraticlly as does the landing gear, the checklist/ help page also pops up!

 

Have I done something wrong?

 

Thanks

Sounds exactly like conflicting assignments. Either the same switch/buttons are assigned in FS (perhaps automatically if you have not disabled controllers in FS), or you have multiple assignments in FSUIPC. You can use Button logging to see what action the buttons are inducing in FSUIPC, and event logging to see the events they cause -- see the Logging tab in FSUIPC options. The log is written to the Modules folder.

Hi Pete

 

And thanks for that

 

I disabled the joystick controller in FS and the autobrake switch works fine. silly question but I have no joystick working now, did I delete the right controller and if so how do I get the joystick working again ?

 

Go easy on me ! I am a newbie !!!!!!!

You either need to assign everything in FSUIPC instead of in FS, or you need to be very careful to ensure there are no conflicting assignments. If you enable joysticks in FS you would need to go through every button and axis assignment to delete those which you want to assign in FSUIPC.

 

Even then, FS has a nasty habit of automatically re-assigning things behind your back -- it especially will do this if it thinks the device is newly connected, or you have unplugged it and plugged it in again. It can even do so at other times too, usually if the device "goes to sleep" and is re-awoken by use.

 

Generally it is better to assign everything in one place or the other. Makes life more predictable!

 

Regards

Pete
