Joystick button programming

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm using FSX and FSUIPC 4.927a (registred), with a Saitek X52 and have programmed some buttons, works fine.

That means I could programm commands with the 'key presses' option.

 

But if I want to select a joystick-button with the option 'buttons+switches' , there is no way to
have a reaction of a button which I want to programm.

In other words: if I press a button on my X52, no reaction in FSUIPC windows.

 

What could be wrong?

 

Thanks in advance

It sounds like you have a Saitek driver running which is receiving the buttons presses and allowing you to see them as keypresses. FSUIPC only sees standard joystick buttons via DirectInput, as seen in Windows game controllers, and then only a maximum of 16 32 per joystick.

–  and then only a maximum of 16 per joystick.

just a little correction, it should be 16 joystick devices; 32 buttons per joystick.

Hi,

Thanks for information.

I will try to load an 'actual' driver for X52 and to see what will happen.

Otherwise, I will let it be. :neutral:

Ok interesting, was doing some testing and it does the same thing using the keyboard to fly. The plane just goes in circles to the left, I see the ailerons functioning, very strange.
