FSUIPC4 problem

Recommended Posts



I seem to be having an issue with FSUIPC4.  It loads up in game. Is visible in my addons file.  I've watched a couple of tutorials and have loaded in some button and axis commands which seem to take and save in my user created "Superbug" profile. But when I go back in game none of the commands are working.  I did uncheck the enable controls or commands in FSX. I tried getting rid of the dll file and even deleting and reinstalling with the same result. It was also not the first time I'm running FSX so that shouldn't be an issue.  Here's my log:

Any ideas?  I would love to be able to use this for controlling my VRS superbug thanks!

Using the exact same aircraft? Obviously, if youchoose an aircraft which is not yet assigned to a profile, they won't be loaded.

Normally it is best to do all your default assignments, calibrations, etc, without using a profile, then just create profiles for when you decide you need things done differently for different classes of aircraft. For 90% of users things aren't that complicated and profiles aren't needed or used.

Er, why? Removing FSUIPC will simply stop it loading so nothing will work!

and even deleting and reinstalling with the same result.

Reinstalling the same software should do the same thing, as it won't change between installs, obviously?

Here's my log:

The log is fine. The log is not the important thing here, it is your settings. Please show me the FSUIPC4.INI file, which is where they are stored.

Do you disconnect and reconnect your joystick controls between sessions, or are they always left connected? Windows 8 and 10 both have the habit of losing or changing the joystick ID numbers if you do that. I suspect they may do it even if you do not disconnect/reconnect -- Win 7 was better in this area. Best to ask FSUIPC to use joystick letters for assignments so it can keep track. There's a chapter about that in the User Guide.

You never fly anything else? If so, why a Profile just for one aircraft?

Note that if you normally want to fly a specific aircraft each time you load FS, you'd be better off (speedier loading,etc), saving your normal starting flight "as default". Currently you are loading FS with this flight:

E:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\flights\other\FLTSIM.FLT

and this aircraft:

E:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes\Aircreation_582SL\Aircreation_582SL.air

That's the install default for FSX-SE. Best to save your own default, saves a lot of FS messing at the start.
