FSUIPC with saitek download software

Recommended Posts

I have all controls set through FSUIPC and not FSX. my question is i just downloaded the saitek profile editor software to assign keys from my keyboard to buttons on the saitek throttle. will this now conflict with my saitek yoke. because in that software its picking up the movement on my yoke.

Sorry, I don't know what the Saitek software does. I suppose you could try it and see?

It all seems working fine just worried it could conflict.

I'm using jetmax throttle its just the buttons i'm using to toggle GSX, Radar contact window etc and other assignments.

The reason i'm using saitek software is so it saves me using the keyboard for radar contact toggle window and GSX, instead i just use the buttons on the saitek throttle. I don't use the saitek throttle just the buttons.

Cheers

You do realise that you can assign keystrokes to buttons in FSUIPC as well, don't you?

Yeh i knew that but wasn't sure about GSX keystrokes, RC etc?

 

RC for certain okay. I don't see why not GSX too. It would actually be quicker for you to try it than send a message here and wait for a reply! ;-)

No problem but before i try it later on, what am i looking for? Will it say radar contact window toggle in fsuipc list?

 

No. You misunderstand completely I'm afraid. You assign your BUTTONs to whatever KEYSTROKE(s) you want. There are no "controls",  we are talking about making keypresses happen when you press buttons!!!

 

The keystroke assignments for RC are set in RC.

Ahh right, so you basically set the keystroke ie ctr + x to the button command in fsuipc?

 

Yes, the left hand side of the "Button & Switches" tab, where you assign keystrokes to button presses, exactly as documented in the User Guide. 

 

Oh, and it works for GSX too -- I use it for GSX.
