Is it possible to assign the axis the function of a button?

Recommended Posts

 

MOVED FROM FAQ SUBFORUM (one of the main reference subforums)

 

Hello, I am new here in the forum and I have little experience with FSUIPC, so if I am creating a topic in the wrong place I ask the moderators to move to the appropriate area, thank you in advance!
Well, I mock with FS9, and with FSUIPC registered version 3,999, my joystick is actually a PlayStation control, my question is the following; is it possible to make the Axis of my joystick / Playstation control behave for example, like the F3 key on the keyboard that when pressed works as throttle increase? I have tried to assign this function in the FSUIPC to my joy but without success, whenever I push the lever of my control up the power levers until they rise for maximum power, but when releasing the lever the levers return to iddle since the tendency of the levers of the joystick / Playstation control is to move to the center when no force is applied to it. I want it when I push the lever of my joystick up, the power levers are at the maximum and not that they come back to iddle when I release the lever and it moves to the center, I want it to only reduce the power when I push the lever down. Any help is very welcome and sorry for my bad English!

If you had perused the place you would have seen that this, like mst of the other little subforums, are reference places, not Support Forums (the exception being the one on the .NET DLL of Paul Henty). The main forum, where the vast majority of pasts are, is where support questions are asked. The problem with posting in reference subforums is that they are unlikely to be noticed until someone refers to them to find some answers not questions), but in the even of the post being from someone new, only the moderators would be able to see such a post.

Hence the many hours you've been left waiting for an answer. You are lucky. Often it is so long since the post was made that it is simply deleted as probably or no current re;evance.

Yes, assign on the right-hand side or the axis assignments tab to the Throttle Incr, set the range for the whole axis movement, and tick the UP option and the repeat whilst in range. Do similarly for Down assigning to Throttle Decr.

All this is described in the User Guide, in the chapter of Axis Assignment, about 2-3 pages in.

Hello Pete, I did not really read so I created a topic in the wrong place. I'm very grateful to receive an answer from you. Thank you!
