fsuipc not reading joystick buttons

Recommended Posts

hello iam using fsuipc v6.1.9 for P3D v5 and suddenly it is not reading the buttons in the joystick 

throttle axis and buttons ok , also rudder axis and joystick axis all ok , only buttons in the joystick are the problem

using HOTAS X-56 , and win 11

P3D reads the buttons in the joystick normally 

any solution ?

thank you

Why suddenly - what has changed?

Your ini only shows a throttle - in fact, the throttle is registered twice with different GUIDs:


0=X56 H.O.T.A.S. Throttle
2=X56 H.O.T.A.S. Throttle

And you only have assignments to the second, with JoyID of 2. There are no other devices recognised or assigned, including your rudder which you sat is assigned and working...

Check that you are not using either the software or the drivers provided by Saitek. If so, uninstall them and use the windows default drivers.
Also, please change the AutoAssignLetters parameter (shown above) to Yes - this will prevent issues if/when the joystick Ids change, which can happen quite easily.

If you still have issues, please provide a fuller explanation, and also attach your FSUIPC6.log file as well as your FSUIPC6.ini file.

Your log shows a couple of issues. First, you have installed FSUIPC under your Documents folder.  This can cause issues, and I recommend that you re-install into a different folder, e.g. C:\FSUIPC6 or C:\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons\FSUIPC6. You can skip registration, and after you re-install copy across your FSUIPC6.key, FSUIPC6,ini and your *.mcro files.

The second issue is a problem with the registry entries for your devices, To correct this, please disconnect your rudder, stick and throttle, open the windows regedit program and take a back-up of your registry and exit. Next download and run (i.e. double-click in Windows Explorer) the attached .reg file - this will remove the current registry entries for your devices.
Then reboot your PC and then re-connect your devices. Then start P3Dv5, load an aircraft and then exit. Then show me your updated FSUIPC6.log and FSUIPC6.ini files.
