Programmed Buttons becoming reset after days of use


Recommended Posts

Hi; On more than one occasion I have experienced FSUIPC reset randomly buttons that were previously programmed. Any idea what might be causing this to happen?

Thanks.

Your settings are recorded in the FSUIPC INI file.  They cannot be changed without you visiting the assignments tabs in the Options and changing them, or by you or some other outside influence editing the file. Files simply do not change themselves and lose lines.

I suspect you are just using Profiles with different settings and have some otherwise similar aircraft registered in different profiles and you are thinking they should be the same. It really sounds like you need to tidy it all up if so.

Hi Pete, I fly only one aircraft Prosim737 (Flight Model). I'll program my eg: joystick (steering tiller) fly then when I come back in a day or two the joystick buttons that I programmed are gone (reset). I do have profiles for different airports which I use to load gate pos'n and radios tuned; do you mean that if I programmed a button/switch for a particular airport (profile) and then load another airport by profile that the buttons I just programmed for the other profile would not be there?

Regards,

Michael.

If the buttons are programmed generically -- i.e NOT whilst in a profile, or with the profile check mark off -- then the apply all the time unless overridden in a profile. But if you programmed then whilst in a profile and with the profile check mark on, then they ONLY apply to that profile.

That's the whole point in having profiles, so you can have different settings for flying different aircraft.

I've never heard of profile selection by airport -- I don't know how you'd do that. You normally use the Sim's scenarios for that. I think you maybe mixing up FSUIPC's profiles and the saved flights or scenarios you have? the latter are to do with the Sim, nothing to do with FSUIPC. FSUIPC's profiles are changed automatically depending on the aircraft you load.

Maybe you'd better show my your FSUIPC INI file (the one with the settings in) and tell me which button assignments keep "disappearning".

Yes Pete your are correct I mean scenarios and not profiles, I did mix them up. I actually don't use profiles in FSUIPC. At least not as far as I am aware.

I will send you the FSUIPC if you still want to have a look at it when nest I power up the sim.

Thanks,

Michael.
