Saitek FIP's stopping FSUIPC 4.927a under Win 8.1


Recommended Posts

I have no doubt that this is not an FSUIPC4 v 4.927a problem but maybe you could point me in the right direction.  I have been attempting to load FSX/wAcc in my new 8.1 build for days now.  I have sorted thru everything, I thought, until this problem popped up.

I am using 23 Saitek devices and all but the Flight Information Panels (FIP's) were finally up and running today without problems, believe me this was a challenge.

If I load the FIP panels which calls this section of the exe.xml file, and will not run without it,
        <Launch.Addon>
            <Name>Saitek DirectOutput RadioStack</Name>
            <Disabled>False</Disabled>
            <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\Saitek\DirectOutput\SaiFlightSimX.exe</Path>
            <CommandLine>-run</CommandLine>
        </Launch.Addon>

the panels load and run just fine until there is any little hiccup in the system.  By that I mean if one of the FIP's needs to reload for some reason it locks up FSUIPC and my controls.  If I open FSUIPC it will not find any devices.  And, when I exit FSX I find that the Enable Joysticks, which had been showing JOYSTICKS=0 in the FSX.cfg is now missing and FSX loads with it enabled?  As I said, it ran fine unitil I started trying to install the FIP's which calls the Saitek program.

As long as the FIP's are loaded prior to selecting a flight , they work perfectly; if loaded after the flight is loaded, I have the described problem.

Could you please point me in a direction?

Well, it appaers all I had to do for the DRIVER crash problem was read the FSUIPC4 Advanced Users Guide; voila ther it was, and it worked.  Now, what is putting the CONTROLS=0 back into the FSX.CFG?

 

AutoScanDevices: This is normally set to 'Yes', to make FSUIPC4 automatically re-scan all connected DirectInput devices each time the Options dialogue is entered. This makes sure devices newly connected are seen. If you don't want this to occur, set it to 'No'. The devices will then only be re-scanned if you press the 'reload' button in either the Axes or Button assignments tabs. I

 

f you never want it to rescan devices (for example, in Windows 8 there seems to be problems doing this), then set this parameter to 'Never' instead.

 

Note that unless disabled here, FSUIPC4 automatically re-scans connections each time it detects any HID USB device connecting. This may help get over problems some folks have with badly behaving devices or USB ports, albeit with a noticeable pause or hesitation (which actually occurs even without any action by FSUIPC to re-connect). A message is logged when this occurs. Note that this doesn't go so far as to allow reconnecting to different USB ports during flight modes.

 

Hope this helps others.

Yes Joysticks, bad case of O.L.D., sorry.  It has happened to me several times today; not sure I remember or even realized it ever happening before?  I just have to make sure and check it before loading a flight or I get a fight between FSX and FSUIPC4 for control.

 

Thanks for a great program.

Rick S.
