FSUIPC 4 v4.929 Cannot activate Profile Specific joystick box


Recommended Posts

Gentlemen,

 

After installing FSUIPC4 v4.929 I was able to set up joystick calibration for two different aircraft using the Profile Specific box in the joystick tab.

I flew each aircraft and then shut down FSX.

today I am unable to activate the Profile Specifc box,  Is there something I am missing?  How can I correct this problem?

 

Thanks.

Can you be more specific, please?  I assume you mean the calibrations section?  Is it responding you your axis movements? Is the checkbox already checked? If so, you have already set a profile for the current aircraft.

 

Button and Key assignments have both specific and non-specific assignments, simultaneously, so the checkbox is used to look at each or change each. But axis assignments and joystick calibrations are only profile-specific or generic. Once you have assigned an aircraft the only way to un-assign it is to remove its name from the [Profile.<profilename>] section in the INI file.

 

If you think there is really a problem which is not now explained, please paste a copy of your INI file in a reply so I can see what you've set.

Pete,

I am referring to the Joystick calibration section.  FSUIPC is responding to all my axis movement.  I had the Aircraft specific box checked.  I first set a joystick profile for the default FSX Cessna 172 and checked the aircraft specific box.

I then did a second joystick profile for the default FSX Boeing 737-800, and then clicked OK.  I tested both in FSX and all was fine.  I shut down FSX.  When I started up FSX again, the Aircraft Specific box was grey.  I wanted to be able to pick

between the Cessna and Boeing, but was unable to do so.  Finally I went to the INI file and deleted the profiles for both aircraft.  Now the Aircraft Specific box looks active.

 

Questions:

1.  In the joystick calibration tab is it possible after shutting down FSX to start FSX up and then select from the various aircraft specific profiles previously entered?  How can this be done?

2.  To set profiles in the joystick calibration tab is it first required to set the AXIS tab for the XYZand R axis ?

 

Thank you.

Warren

You pick between Cessna and Boeing by loading the appropriate aircraft, not by clicking on the profile checkbox! It will be greyed out because once an aircraft is assigned to that profile, it cannot be unassigned (except by editing the INI file, as I said).

Yes, of course. You load an unassigned aircraft then select a profile for it, or make a new one. You can even make a new one based on an existing one. Please do peruse the user guide where it is all explained, with pictures to help!

No! Joystick calibration does NOT need any assignments whatsoever in FSUIPC. It only needs joysticks assigned somewhere, whether in FSUIPC or in FS. The calibration isn't on the axes directly, it is on the actual FS axis controls just before they are obeyed by FS.
