[P3Dv4.5] FSUIPC6 not recognizing Honeycomb Yoke


Recommended Posts

Hii, Recently I got the Honeycomb Alpha yoke to replace the stick of the saitek hotas. For some reason tho it seems that all the funtions, including the axis, of the honeycomb yoke are not recognized in FSUIPC6. I've been trying to figure out why but so far got no relevant information about it.
According to the Joyscan.csv file, the yoke is recognized 

Idk if someone can help me with my problem?

And according to your FSUIPC6.ini:

Quote

[JoyNames]
AutoAssignLetters=No
0=Alpha Flight Controls
0.GUID={FB3177A0-6E0F-11EB-8014-444553540000}

And you also have assignments to the yoke...well, to device 0, which is now your yoke but looked like it was previously your throttle.
You should really have set AutoAssignLetters=Yes in your [JoyNames] section before removing and attaching new devices...

Is your HOTAS throttle still connected? I think so, but it does not show in your FSUIPC7.ini file, presumably because it has the same id assigned as your Alpha.
However, I cannot tell for sure as you have attached a continuation log, not a full log. I really need to see a full log (ie. do NOT start a New Log - never use this feature when generating log files for support, I always need to see the full log).

Can you please:
   - disconnect the alpha (keep your throttle connected, if using that)
   - change your [JoyNames] section (shown above) to just:

Quote

[JoyNames]
AutoAssignLetters=Yes

- run P3D/FSUIPC6 - just load an aircraft and then exit
- show me your FSUIPC6.ini, FSUIPC6.log and FSUIPC6.JoyScan.csv files

Then connect your Alpha, start P3D/FSUIPC6 again, load an aircraft and then exit, and show me those 3 (updated) files again.

Yes it is, as I have no other throttle quadrant yet to replace it. Basically still deciding between the Honeycomb Bravo or one of the two thrust master throttle quadrants.. but that is besides the point.

Below are the files after step 1 through 4

And here are the files of step 5

for some reason the forum is saying the files are passing a max total size limit of 11.53 kB so that is why I share it like this
EDIT: I figured out how to fix the upload size limit for now, so the zip file will be in the attachment instead of through a link

I have uninstalled the Hotas software and unplugged the hotas throttle. Funny enough the Yoke is being recognized by the axis assignment and button & switches tab in the FSUIPC control panel.

 

EDIT: forgot to mention but I did NOT uninstall the drivers of the hotas throttle. I'll provide the log files when I'm home later today

The problem seems to be that both devices are Registered with the same ID, as indicated by this error message in the Log:

      219    WARNING: Joystick ID 1 is duplicated in Registry

So, first thing to try is changing this part of the INI file

[JoyNames]
AutoAssignLetters=Yes
0=Alpha Flight Controls
0.GUID={FB3177A0-6E0F-11EB-8014-444553540000}
A=X56 H.O.T.A.S. Throttle << MISSING JOYSTICK >>
A.GUID={FB3177A0-6E0F-11EB-8014-444553540000}
B=Alpha Flight Controls
B.GUID={FB3177A0-6E0F-11EB-8014-444553540000}

To this:

JoyNames]
AutoAssignLetters=Yes
0=X56 H.O.T.A.S. Throttle
0.GUID={FB3177A0-6E0F-11EB-8014-444553540000}
3=Alpha Flight Controls
3.GUID={FB3177A0-6E0F-11EB-8014-444553540000}
A=X56 H.O.T.A.S. Throttle
A.GUID={FB3177A0-6E0F-11EB-8014-444553540000}
B=Alpha Flight Controls
B.GUID={FB3177A0-6E0F-11EB-8014-444553540000}

Also there are unwanted assignments in the [Axes.Twin-jet] section:

4=2X,256,D,1,0,0,0    -{ DIRECT: Aileron }-
5=2Y,256,D,2,0,0,0    -{ DIRECT: Elevator }-
6=2R,256,D,3,0,0,0    -{ DIRECT: Rudder }-

Remove those as you no longer have a device with ID 2.

Let me know how that goes when you have both devices connected (same files again please). If there's still a clash we may need to look at editing the Registry. (Ugh).

Please do, and let windows install the default driver - disconnect your devices first and reboot before reconnecting. Show us your files afterwards...
After you have done this, Pete's advise may not be relevant, not sure - he can advise {maybe}, but also not an issue if already done.

Note I am on holiday now until the 18th - Pete may help you before this if you still have issues, otherwise I may take another look if i get a chance...

IT WORKED, It freaking worked haha!! Both the yoke and the hotas throttle do not interfere with each other from what I notice and it seems that all the axis' and buttons/switches are being recognized separately from each other.

I'll post the files just in case you still wanna take a look at it.

Thank you so much for all the help and support in this!!

Oh, easier than I thought. The Log still shows this error:

    172    WARNING: Joystick ID 1 is duplicated in Registry
But it seems that this doesn't adversely affect the outcome.  I think the "other" device ID 1 must be the data channel on the X56, used (I think) only for firmware updates.

Good flying!
