FSUIPC Toggle Primer 1 & 2 not working after re-boot


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I have a issue with my "Primer 1" & "Primer 2" toggle switches in my Manfred Jahn's C-47.

 

I'm not sure if it's the aircraft that is causing the issue or FSUIPC.

 

I assigned two of my Saitek toggle switches, one for primer 1 and one for primer 2, I made them profile specific for my C47 and they worked fine.

 

When I exit out of FSX and go back in they work fine also, but when I shut my simulator computer down, re-start and launch FSX with a flight in the C47, the toggle switches stop working. 

 

I opened FSUIPC and checked the assignments, they're still there but they're not working?

 

I also assigned the starter buttons on two of my other Saitek toggle switches and they're fine and never lose their assignments after a re-boot of the computer.

 

any info, or help would be greatly appreciated,

Sam

 

(Please note, I'm using the latest FSUIPC version 4.945)

Hi Guys,

FSUIPC cannot lose assignments. They are stored in the FSUIPC4.INI file and, as you see, reloaded each time.

 

Are you using Profiles? Perhaps you are using more than one livery for the aircraft and have not used the same profile for all?

 

You can use FSUIPC's logging (button logging, event logging) to see what happens in FSUIPC when you operate the buttons.  If you need more help I'll need to see your FSUIPC4.INI file, and if necessary the result of the logging.

 

You also need to be sure that those switches are working in the aircraft model.

 

Note that after today I'm away till October 4th.

Hi Pete,

 

Thanks for checking in, yes as I said above, I'm using profiles and yes I have about five liveries for the same plane...

 

I'll post the INI file in a minute....

 

Like I said, I don't lose the info in the profile or the ini, it's only when I re-boot the computer they stop working, and like I said why would all the other assigned switches work and not stop working?

I just added the "Douglas C47 profile" to all my C47 liveries, you were right they didn't work in the other ones, so maybe that was the issue, here's my ini file after I added the profile to the others:

ok so I did some testing this morning and found that if I started a flight with a C47 livery (Douglas C-47 – Alaska Airlines) which is not the main model (Douglas C-47 VMJ-253 Margie) after a re-boot of the computer the toggle switches didn't function, but if I end the flight and change to the main model livery (Douglas C-47 VMJ-253 Margie) it works fine after a re-boot of the computer and if I then switch to my other livery (Douglas C-47 – Alaska Airlines) it also is now working fine. 

 

Strange, so I guess I need to start with the (Douglas C-47 VMJ-253 Margie) livery and then switch to any of the other ones if I want it to work right after a re-boot or start up of the computer.
