Saitek X52 Pro Mode Switch

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've a question on how to get the mode system to work for the Siatke X52 Pro Joystick. The mode selector switch (a rotary knob) on the top right corner of the joystick is not seen/detected by FSUIPC; meaning that as i switch from mode 1 to 2 to 3, there is no joystick action registered in the "Button + Switches" tab in FSUIPC. 

However, the mode switches work with default windows game controller properties as three red tabs that light up as you switch the modes. The mode switch also works with Saitek ST Programming software and it allows be different functions to be set on the same key with different modes.

For reference, I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, and X52 Pro driver version is 7.0.53.6, and ST Programming software version is also 7.0.53.6; and FSX:Acceleration

Here is what I would like to do, I have a few mouse macros in FSUIPC and want to assign them to my X52 joystick buttons with mode 2. Those joystick buttons are already taken in mode 1. So, I want to assign 2 different functions to 1 joystick key using 2 modes. Mode 1, joy#1,btn#1 will perform X action, and Y action when in Mode 2.

Can this be done? Anyone here has experience with the X52 controllers and modes with FSUIPC?

Sorry, but it is outside the range of button numbers (1-32 or 0-31 in FSUIPC) which FSUIPC handles. You can program it using a Lua plug-in which reads the HID values itself, but that isn't straight-forward and requires a bit of nifty programming.

Also I think LINDA can probably handle it (but I'm not sure -- best to check).
