AutoAssignLetters=Yes - not working

Recommended Posts

Hello,

without changing the hardware it happened permanently that the devices were changing the number. So i Set AutoAssignLetters to YES. But it does not help. The INI file section looks like:

Maybe someone would help you if you quit using that stupid, pretentious ILLEGIBLE, script font.

...

How many devices called "FLOOD" have you actually got connected? 12?

 

The letters are probably changing because there is something drastically wrong with that device. They are registering themselves differently each time scanned.

 

They all appear to be different because the GUIDs are all unique: To check that I had to sort them into order to make comparisons easy:

 5.GUID={27253C80-B460-11E5-8001-444553540000}
 7.GUID={27253C80-B460-11E5-8002-444553540000}
11.GUID={272B5700-B460-11E5-8003-444553540000}
 9.GUID={272B5700-B460-11E5-8004-444553540000}
 8.GUID={27312360-B460-11E5-8006-444553540000}
12.GUID={60C43D40-B4B2-11E5-8001-444553540000}
13.GUID={60C43D40-B4B2-11E5-8002-444553540000}
14.GUID={60C43D40-B4B2-11E5-8003-444553540000}
 4.GUID={60C43D40-B4B2-11E5-8004-444553540000}
 6.GUID={C00D8130-B24B-11E5-8001-444553540000}
15.GUID={C00E1D70-B24B-11E5-8002-444553540000}
10.GUID={C00E92A0-B24B-11E5-8003-444553540000}
 3.GUID={C00E92A0-B24B-11E5-8004-444553540000}
 1.GUID={D6D9F770-B243-11E5-8001-444553540000}
 2.GUID={EA683F60-CAB5-11E5-8001-444553540000}
Now, I don't know how Windows assigns GUIDs, but I would assume that if it sees many devices all looking identical it is pot luck which is assigned where.
 
With "AutoAssignLetters", once letters are assigned it is best to change the option to "No" in any case. I don't know if that would help when Windows appears to be changing things, but it might. FSUIPC only assigns letters to things which appear newly scanned.
 
The title you've given this thread is plain wrong andmisleading. The AutoAssignLetters is probably working well -- you have no evidence otherwise.

Okay, thank you.

I have 12 Arcaze USB-Interfaces connected and the first one is named "FLOOD".

 

Will try to find out more about the ongoing registration changes!

Only 1 out of 12 named "FLOOD".? If so then something most certainly is confusing Windows.

 

Good luck in finding out what is happening. Please post any progress here too. Let me know especially if changing AutoAssignLetters to No helps at all.

Hello,

Now I found out, that one of the Arcazes seems to not functioning correctly (continual USB -registering and unregistering) and I replaced it with another one. Since then I have no more changes of board-numbers. And I hope that will remain..

Finally it looks like a hardware-problem, thank you for helping!

Best regards

Hi there,

 

I add my problem here because it's a littlebit similar to Gunters problem (which is now solved you know).

 

I use also ArcazeUSB-Interfaces for my P3D-Setup. They appear as gamepads, unfortunately all with the name "New" due to the firmware on the Arcaze board. But everything goes fine with Windos and FSUIPC until I add a new ArcazeUSB (also as gamepad known as "New").

 

This is my fsuipc.ini before adding a new board:

All unique GUIDs, all fine. All buttons, encoders and axes are working as they should. Now I add another Arcaze board. FSUIPC adds the board as letter "J" and number 11:

Now things are starting to get weird. Some encoders and buttons changed their assignments and the buttons on the freshly added Arcaze board use assignments of some of the "old" boards. E.g. one encoder was E6, now it's J2. One button on the new Arcaze board uses C0, which was assigned to another board as gear down button before.

 

Any help why FSUIPC not just add the new board and give me the "J" button range and let the "old" boards their assignmend?

 

Thanks a lot and best regards,

Chris

It sounds identical to the previous problem. The Arcaze board is probably re-registering itself.  Haven't you used that utility mentioned by Reinhard to check what is happening? FSUIPC can only react to what Windows tells it.

 

Arcaze boards seem very problematic to me.
