Steering tile calibration

Recommended Posts

Hello Pete and everyone,

For a long time now I use a rotary switch of my X52 with the function of a steering tiler and for that I use the FSUIPC internal assignment. All other axis are assigned directly via P3D. Although it works nicely there seems to be a calibration issue (or maybe initialization issue would be the best wording) because every time I start the simulator I have to turn the rotary to the full left/full right a few times in order for it to work flawlessly. If I don't perform this it will act erratically and not center the nosewheel when the rotary is right in the central position.

Thence I'd like to ask if there is a procedure or something that would prevent me from having to make this "initialization" and make it precise right from beginning.

Thanks!

Is the rotary acting as an axis? FSUIPC doesn't know the position of your rotary when it starts, and will only receive the axis position and sent the relevant event/control with the position once it has moved. You shouldn't have to  "turn the rotary to the full left/full right a few times in order for it to work" though. Maybe you can try activating logging for 'Axis Controls' and generate a short log file of your start-up procedure to see what is being sent. Post/attach this, together with your ini file.

Cheers,

John
