Newbie Question about axis custom association


Stavka

Recommended Posts

Hello,

My MSFS default i have a TQS with this association:

Axis:

1 - Throttle 1

2 - Throttle 2

3 - Throttle 3

4 - Throttle 4

5 - Prop Pitch

6 - Mixture

---------

Then using the FSUPIC i did a custom aircraft specific association to be like:

1 - Throttle 1

2 - Throttle 2

3 - Prop 1

4 - Prop 2

5 - Mix 1

6 - Mix 2

-----------

The problem, when i move the axis 5 and 6 its merged with the old configuration. Like i move the axis 5 and it moves the mix 1 and also both props....

How do i correctly fix this without move the msfs default config to not mess with all my other aircraft that i not want to use fsuipc configs?

Thank You so much!!!!

In FSUIPC7, profiles can only be loaded for specific aircraft. This is not the case in MSFS - you have to manually switch profiles. So, if you are using MSFS to control your TQS for some aircraft, and are using FSUIPC7 for other aircraft, then you need to make sure that you do not have dual assignments, i.e. have an axis or button assigned in both FSUIPC7 and in MSFS.

To do this for axis, in FSUIIPC7 you can create an empty axis and axis calibration profile for the aircraft for which you are using MSFS assignments.
In MSFS, you will have to create a new empty profile for your TQS, and manually switch between this and your TQS default profile, depending on which aircraft you are using and if it is assigned in MSFS or FSUIPC.

I believe that having aircraft-specific controller profiles in MSFS is in the feature wishlist and is in the Planned stage. Not sure on the timescales for this to be developed/released though.

Hello John,

Sad that i still need to do a config change o msfs that will change the default one for all and config all on FSUIPC or for the specific one that i use FSUIPC i need to change the msfs profile all the time.

Maybe i go for the first solution, i not config at all the tqs on msfs and config on fsuipc. I noticed that the profile are saved by paint.... It can be saved by aircraft globally. Because if i change the livery i need to create another fsuipc profile???

Thank You!

That is normally what I would recommend...

You can edit the name of the aircraft in the FSUIPC7.ini under the [Profile.xxx] section to remove the livery name and yse a short as string as possible that matches the aircraft you want to use (e.g. "PMDG 737", "Cessna Skyhawk", "TBM 930", etc). There is also an ini parameter you can set that will match in the aircraft folder name instead id the title, which should catch all variants/liveries id the same aircraft:
    UseAirLocForProfiles=Yes
From the Advanced User guide (P6):

Quote

UseAirLocForProfiles: setting this ini parameter to Yes will change the profile matching from using the aircraft name to using the folder name of the folder under which the currently loaded aircraft's aircraft.cfg file is located. This can provided a better match for different versions of the same aircraft, such as when using different liveries. If using this option, it is also recommended to set ShortAircraftNameOk=No (see below).

Also see the User guide section Profile matching on aircraft with different liveries on page 21.

Note that if you change to use this. you will need to associate each aircraft back to its profile again (i.e. load the aircraft, open FSUIPC's axis assignment panel, check the profile-specific box and select the profile. After you have done this for the profiles you use, you can the clean-up your FSUIPC7.ini by removing the aircraft names from the Profile sections.

Hello John,

I added the:

UseAirLocForProfiles=Yes

ShortAircraftNameOk=No

on the General section of fsuipc.ini, but it ignored and removed the lines and still profiling the aircraft with his name and livery. Anyway, using your help i did what you told. I removed the livery part of the name and it nicelly works and detect the aircraft independantly of his livery. Also cleaning the msfs config now it works perfectly well

Now its all ok!!!! Working amazing but with aircraft name instead of folder name. IT WORKS and that is what matter, so my fsuipc buying and with your precious help is now perfect.

Thank You!

Thats strange - did you do this when FSUIPC7 was running? You need to make this change when FSUIPC7 is not running as these options will only be read at start-up.

Anyway, glad its working for you anyway without this.
