PLEASE ALWAYS POST SUPPORT QUESTIONS IN THE SUPPORT FORUM!

So, I've had the Saitek X-56 Rhino for a while, and it's worked without problems, until about a week ago. Neither the stick or trottle quadrant is working in P3D at the moment, but the wierd thing is it's working in the Saitek program. I've tried most of the usual stuff like changing USB port, I've also done a troubleshooting in Windows, with no results. I am using FSUIPC 4 and I have disabled my controllers in P3D. I've been told you can change the JoyNames in the fsuipc.ini file, but to what, and what numbers to change? Very wierd problem, seems like it should be an easy fix.

 

Thanks in advance

PLEASE ALWAYS POST SUPPORT QUESTIONS TO THE SUPPORT FORUM!!!

Main thing to do is change the 

AutoAssignLetters=No

to Yes, so that letters are used in assignments, not numerical IDs which can change.

I also see that the Throttle has two IDs associated with it:

0=Saitek Pro Flight X-56 Rhino Throttle
0.GUID={35FAD9F0-E63B-11E6-8004-444553540000}
3=Saitek Pro Flight X-56 Rhino Throttle
3.GUID={35FA3DB0-E63B-11E6-8003-444553540000}

yet the Stick is missing. This looks like one of the usual Registry muck ups which occur a lot with Saitek devices, especially if you install their software which seems to often make such a mess.

Can you please do this:

1. Download and install the current interim FSUIPC4 update, 4.969d, from the Download Links subforum

2. Add these lines to the [General] section of the FSUIPC4.INI file:

Debug=Please
LogExtras=x200000

Then run P3d. Keep it brief. After clsoing it down, show me the FSUIPC5.LOG file (always more important than the INI file), and the FSUIPC4.Joyscan.csv file, both from the modules folder.

I'll check those files to see if there's anything FSUIPC can do automatically, but it might be a good idea anyway to uninstall the X-56 completely, unplug both parts, uninstall it in the Windows Device Manager (including drivers), and plug them back in and re-boot the system so they install properly as normal devices.

Thanks Pete,

I've now got my Joystick working, I changed the ID on JpyID from #2 to #11, but there's another problem, now my throttle is not working. I tried it in the PMDG 777 and the problem is that when i go fully backwards the throttle in-game goes into idle reverse and i can't get it put of that mode without clicking the reversers. I've got controllers disabled in P3D and the throttles mapped in FSUIPC as throttle 1 and 2, both are calibrated. It does not work in the aerosoft airbus either, so it's not aircraft related it seems.

Thanks in advance

You are wrong there. Just test with a default aircraft to check.

Neither of those aircraft like reverse mapped on the throttles. You should have the "no reverse zone" option checked on the calibration tab.

Also, according to many accounts, none of the PMDG aircraft like any sort of calibration made by FSUIPC on the throttles, and instead need them assigning to the "axis throttteN set" controls. Otherwise, so I understand, you are likely to get conflicts.

For all I know the same applies to your Airbus.

Thanks for the fast response Pete, I tried turning on the "no reverse zone", but as far as I can see it caused another problem, now that I push my throttle with just the slightest millimeter forward the simulator pushes the throttle to about 50% N1, seems like an easy fix, you got any ideas?

You need to re-calibrate after any option change! The range you are sending to the sim is now different!

I calibrated it in FSUIPC again, but it did no difference, it seems that when the throttle is all the way back it's at about -16300 but when I push it just a little bit it goes up to 0 and then continues up to around 16000, at least that's what I can see in the FSUIPC calibration.

The IN range will be the standard -16383 or close to +16383 or close. That's the standard range for all joystick axes when not used in RAW mode.  Assignment in the Sim would be the same as assignment in FSUIPC. No difference.

The value of 0 for the INput should be reasonable near the middle of the movement. If it isn't then you either have a faulty unit, or, more likely, its registry entries are screwed up.

The calibration stage can do anything you like to affect the OUT value. That's the whole point of calibration, which you seem to misunderstand!  If necessary you can calibrate the 0 area as the "minimum" and your 16000 or so as the maximum. That would get over the anomaly in the unit itself, or its registry entries.

However, it would be a lot better to re-install the unit altogether.

If you are using Saitek software that will probably interfere, so uninstall that.

Then go to the Windows Device Manager, find BOTH units there, and and right-click them to uninstall (including driver when the option is presented). Then unplug them. Re-boot the system then plug them back in so they get the correct Registration.

Pete
