Thrustmaster Captain Pack couple of issues? Require some assistance once again?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Apologises for starting a another new topic on this again, butI'm just having few issues still that I cant resolve? I don't seem to have the issue with the throttles like I do with A330?

 

1) I was trying to set the Flaps / Spoliers by using the following guide, but have not been uccessful. I'm not to sure if its due to missing a couple of things within the Axis Assignbments.

I've attached the following image below whic you can see I'm missing the Assignments in P3D but have no idea why and how to rectify this?

 

2) My second issue involves the A330, When I advance the throttles and then return them to Idle its not going fully back into Idle as you can see from the second image.

 

3) I did read about setting up the Parking Brake & Landing Gear using buttons 21 but again I'm unable to ge tthis working

 

4) Sometimes I'm noticing the reversers sometimes keep coming up when I'm down on idle power but don't think this is a major problem

 

Apologises for the rather long post, but I have tried to follow the indivual guides but still haveinjg my issues and I'm not very good when it comes to mapping controls to various things within P3D.

 

Thanks

 

Jason

Hi Simware,

 

Thanks for your reply, I had selected both those options it says for the Quadrant, I've not put anything in the option for Sidestick as this wasn't mentioned in the two guides? Do I need to open the A3xx configurator and put a tick in the sidestick box?

 

The issue with A330 problem seems to be sorted that shows in the picture above.

 

The only thing I'm struggling with still is the below. issues with setting up still Spoilers , Flaps , Autobrake, Landing Gear & Parking Brake Also can assign the Autobrake option on the Quadrant 

3) I did read about setting up the Parking Brake & Landing Gear using buttons 21 but again I'm unable to get this working

 

On your Spoiler & Flaps Guide in the picture it does show Flaps Assignment Z Axis & Spoiler Assignment Rz Axis but in my picture on the setting this isn't showing anything its just blank. Is this why I'm not able to configure the Flaps & Spoiler? If so how do I rectify this?

 

Thanks

 

Jason

Hi, 

 

No. This could cause some conflict in the throttle and reverse management as the sidestick has 

a built-in throttle lever.

Just wanted to make sure it was not the case here.

As for the spoilers and flaps, you need to assign the axes yourself.

They won't be assigned automatically. 

 

Do you see what I mean ?

 

Thank you.

Hi,

I'm aware they aren't assigned automatically, and I presume you mean just by going into the Options > Axis assignment and then doing it that was as it shows in this guide (How to configure the TCA Flaps & Spoiler). If so this is what I've been trying to do but am unable to get it to work.

 

These are the the steps I've been doing:-

 

1) Start P3D > Goto Options - Axis Assignment > Make sure controller is set to TCA Eng 1&2

2) Select Flaps > Press New > This brings up the new box to move the flap lever so it assigns it?

 

I do apologies for asking for help, but I'm not very good when it comes to sorting things out like this, but am grateful for your assistance you are providing.

 

Many Thanks

 

Jason

Hi,

 

No problem on asking for help, that is what we are here for.

So you mean that, in the axis detection process in P3D, the flaps and spoiler  axes of the TCA are not detected ?

 

If so, can you please first check if the unit si correctly working at the Windows level ?

Please follow this tutorial: 

Thank you.

Hi,

I've followed those instructions and used a different computer, but unable to use a different USB Cable. Again able to move the Throttles , Engine Staret Buttons and Engine Mode selector but nothing showed up whilst moving Spolier & Flap Lever. This was the results on the other computer and they seemed to stay the same when restarting.

 

X Axis - 49060 > 65535

Y Axis - 49683 > 65535

Z Axis - ?????? > 65535

 

When I load up P3D and go into Options>Axis Assignment for EngineThrottles show 127 for the Sensitivity. I have enclosed some more pics showing some things nd also showing the Calibration Info for the Quadrant & A320 joystick not sure if it helps?

 

Is it worth me pressing Reset Defaults for both the Quadrant & joystick for both Key Assignments & Axis Assignments?

 

Thanks

Jason

Hi Jason,

Do you mean the red bars in the Windows Calibration utility move for the throttles but NOT for the flaps and spoilers ?

If this is indeed what happens, please check the two following points


1 - Check that the two SATA cable underneath the unit are connected 
2 - On the front side of the unit, there is a small dip-switch showing "ENG 1&2  3&4"
      ->Please disconnect the unit, set the switch to 3&4 and try again.


Best regards.

Hi,

I've swapped that switch over to 3&4,but not sure what you wanted me to do next? Again there is nothing showing in the Axis Assignments for Spoilers or Flaps.

 

I really don't know what's causing this because no-one else seems to have problems like this? Have you any idea what the issue could be?

 

Jason
