CH rudder pedals and brakes change other axes in FSUIPC


Recommended Posts

I've recently downloaded FSUIPC and started to calibrate my CH Yoke and CH Pro pedals. The yoke calibration went well, but the rudder pedals didn't.

Moving the pedals makes no change in the values displayed in the Rudder section of FSUIPC's display, but change the values in the Throttle section.

The left toe brake changes values in the Aileron section, the right brake changes values in the Elevator section. 

I am at a complete loss as to what to do. 

Help would be appreciated.

As well as what Thomas days, please note that you do also need to actually assign the axes to the correct actions, not leave it to pot luck. If you are assigning in FS make sure the FS assignments are correct, because obviously they are not. If you want to assign them in FSUIPC, take care first to disable controllers altogether in FS or there will be conflicts!

No assignments in FS have been changed, both yoke and pedals worked without me changing anything - which I wouldn't know how to do anyway. 

The Joystick in FS2004 is disabled, so I don't see how assignments in FS are relevant.  You say controllers, plural.  What others are there?

I'm totally confused.

How can I erase everything I've done in FSUIPC and start again?

So, you have the yoke and pedals assigned in FS, but then you have disabled them -- both of them? So where are they now assigned, and what to?

You tell me. You say there are at least two -- yoke and pedals. I don't know what else you have, you haven't told me and I can't see your system from here! By "disable controllers" in FS, I mean the option shown in the settings menu for controllers -- there's just the one option to enable/disable all controllers.

Evidently, because you are not making sense I'm afraid. We can help, but we need to know what you've actually done.

Just delete the FSUIPC4.INI file ("configuration settings") which you'll find in the Modules folder of FS. Or alternatively you may wish to paste itrs contents into a message here so I can see what you've done, exactly (at least in FSUIPC -- it won't tell me what you've done in FS).

I can see only one enable/disable tick box in FS Settings, it's called Enable Joystick.  (There's a similar facility in the FS flight window under Options.) In the Assignments and the Sensitivities tabs there is a drop down box in which to select either the yoke or the pedals. 

If I tick the Enable Joystick box and then click on Calibrate Joystick, a window Called Game Controllers opens up.  There's a Controller column listing two items; the yoke and the pedals, and a Status column with OK for both items.  I see no way of enabling or disabling either one separately. 

If the Enable Joystick is not ticked, the Calibrate Joystick option is greyed out. 

In the Assignments tab I haven't touched anything; both the yoke and pedals work with default settings. 

I have FSUIPC3 by the way.

Ah, sounds like you are still using FS2004 or before? That's called Controllers in FSx and later. It's the same one though. If you are assigning in FS you need that ticked, if in FSUIPC it must be unticked.

Yes, but that's all to do with FS and Windows. None of that is anything whatsoever to do with FSUIPC.

Yes, it would be, obviously.

But you are not using it for anything? I don't understand why you are posting here at all. If you aren't assigning or calibrating in FSUIPC, why post here at all?

I am trying to use FSUIPC3 in FS2004. 

Okay. Assuming you don't need to swap controls over for different aircraft (for example, joystick for fighter jets, yoke for airliners and GA) then it is much simpler leaving all your axes assigned in FS.

Just make sure they all work in FS first, then you can look at calibrating in FSUIPC if you wish. But please do follow the instructions in the Joystick Calibration section of the FSUIPC User Guide.

The FSUIPC Calibration tabs don't operate on the hardware axes at all, but intercept the values being sent to the FS flight control engine and work on those. They just identfy which control it is based on your assignments, no matter where yu made them.

Thank you Pete for your time and patience.

I started again and used FSUIPC solely for calibration.  That's working fine.

Many decades ago I clocked 20-odd hours of lessons in a Cessna 150 but simply couldn't afford to continue.  For the time being I am satisfied with the Cessna 172 in FS.  I find it harder to fly that the real life 150.  No intention of exploring more exotic craft yet.
