Ch multi function pad


Recommended Posts

Bin using my CH MFP with its own software to program diffrent buttones but not all are available, and i want to set up some mouse macros, but FSUIPC does not seem to recognize the buttons on the MFP when i push them, is there a way i can program them using FSUIPC and not the actual software.

thanks

Does Windows see it as a "game controller"? Does FS? FSUIPC only scans and uses joystick type devices (plua GoFlight buttons and switches, through their DLL).

If it is a joystick type device it will appear in FSUIPC's joystick scan -- look at its Log file.

Maybe it is a joystick type device but you still have its own CH driver running and that prevents its buttons being seen?

The MFP is just a bunch of buttons that i can assign a comand (for ex. Button 1 > shift a ) if i dont load the software it wont even funcion but i will try and play around with it im not to knowladgable about programing  and stuff but i will try,

So it's a specialised HID device, like the Goflight button/switch es like GF-P8 and GF-T8. Even for FSUIPC to see them a Goflight-supplied DLL is needed,though you can program them directly using Lua plug-ins. Even your device can probably be programmed that way, you just need to do a bit of detective work to decode the data you receive.

It is very unusual for a simply button device to have its own unique protocol so it has to have its maker's software.
