Additional axes request

Recommended Posts

Hi Pete and John,
I have a registered FSUIPC, version 6.0.10 and am running P3Dv4 Pro Plus version 4.5.14.34698.
In the FSUIPC Documents folder is Controls List for P3D4 Build 34698 text that I reference quite a lot.
This document refers to two controls - 67298 = HOTAS_SLEW_AXIS_X and 67299 = HOTAS_SLEW_AXIS_Y.
I have a control stick that I use to move the Targeting Pod (supplied with P3D Pro Plus) cursor around when selecting targets.
The only way I can get this to work at the moment is to assign the analogues in the stick via P3D Controls>Axis Assignments but this means Enabling the controller/s which I would prefer not to do.
I would much prefer to run everything via FSUIPC however I am unable to find a reference to these two axes in FSUIPC>Axis Assignment drop down list, even though my control stick X and Y analogues are detected by FSUIPC.
I'm unable to find an offset for these either.
I can continue to Enable Controllers but I'd rather not.
Are you able to assist me?
Regards,
Rod Dale

Yes, I should be able to add them so that they can be assigned, but only as 'Send to FS as normal axis'.  There will be no calibration or offset area for these axes.
These must be newer controls that aren't yet flagged in FSUIPC as axes controls.

I'll look at this in the coming days and post an updated version of FSUIPC6 for you to try/test.

@f-111sim Hi Rod,

sorry for the delay, there were a few added complications...

Please try the attached dll. I've cleaned-up the recognition of axes controls and added several new axis controls, including the ones you requested.
The axes are functioning in that they are being sent to the FS, although I cannot confirm if working correctly or not as I'm not sure what those axes are supposed to do...!

Please let me know if this is working for you. I have a few other updates (mainly documentation) to add and once done I'll release this version officially.

John
