Finn Posted January 29, 2011 Share Posted January 29, 2011 Do not do any of this if you do not have problems. 99 out of 100 users will not have to do this ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is a detailed description on how to setup non standard controllers for use with Huey X. The Huey X comes with a custom coded module that greatly enhances helicopter specific flight behaviour. For this to work it is important that all joystick axis are assigned within FSX' own controller setup menu. The first part of this walkthrough is mandatory for all users. Both those without FSUIPC and those with FSUIPC. The FSUIPC part of this walktthrough will end up with a configuration where You don´t need to rename files or assign/unassign axis' Neither in FSX's own controller menu, nor in FSUIPC. The FSUIPC part IS ONLY REQUIRED if You use FSUIPC as the sole means of assigning and calibrating Your controllers. Read each and every step !! It might seem complicated, but read through the steps before You actually do something, and I´m sure that You will find that it is relative easy. START OF WALKTHROUGH: 1. Ensure that Your controllers are connected and functional Use the Windows Control panel -> Gaming devices option to ensure proper calibration and function. 2. Ensure that no other than those controller necessary for FSX are plugged in (especially un supported gaming devices normally used for Xbox etc.) 4. Start FSX 5. Inside FSX select Settings -> Controls -> Control axes 6. Now assign the various axis' (note these screenshots show setups for CH Flightstich Pro, CH Throttlequadrant and CH Rudder pedals) 7. Once all axis are assigned click the OK button 8. Important !! Ensure that ALL Nullzones are as small as possible i.e 0% sliders fully Left and that sensivities are at max ie. 100% sliders fully Right. 9. MOST IMPORTANT !!! Close down FSX !! 10. To check that You just saved the controller setup, look in this directory: Win XP: C:\Documents and Settings\..user name..\Application Data\Microsoft\FSX\Controls\ Vista & Win 7: C:\Users\..user name..\AppData\Microsoft\FSX\Controls\ A file called Standard.xml should be present with a timestamp reflecting the time You clicked on the OK button in the FSX Controller Axes menu END OF THE PART FOR NON FSUIPC USERS (Or those who does NOT use FSUIPC for controller assignment and calibration) FSUIPC Part: After having gone through step 1-9 continue here... 11. Start FSX and select Free flight with the Huey X Bundeswehr version loaded 12. In the ADD-On´s menu on the top menubar of FSX -> Select FSUIPC 13. Select the FSUIPC Axis assignment tab 14. Set a checkmark in the "Aircraft Specific" checkmark box 15. Unassign all relevant axis' and set them as "Send to FS as normal axis" 16. Click the "OK" button to save and exit FSUIPC 17. Shut down FSX 18. Find \..\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Modules\ folder and open up the FSUIPC.ini file with notepad 19. In the FSUIPC.ini file, find this line and set it to "yes": ShortAircraftNameOk=Yes 20. Now scroll down almost to the end of the file and find the section starting with: [JoystickCalibration.UH-1D Bundeswehr] AllowSuppressForPFCquad=Yes ExcludeThrottleSet=Yes ExcludeMixtureSet=Yes ExcludePropPitchSet=Yes SepRevsJetsOnly=No .. Change to: [JoystickCalibration.UH-1D] 21. Also change this section from: [Axes.UH-1D Bundeswehr] 0=0X,1,D,7,0,0,0 1=0Y,1,D,8,0,0,0 2=2Z,1,D,17,0,0,0 To: [Axes.UH-1D] 0=0X,1,D,7,0,0,0 1=0Y,1,D,8,0,0,0 2=2Z,1,D,17,0,0,0 22. Copy the entire content of these two sections and rename "UH-1D" to "205": [JoystickCalibration.205] AllowSuppressForPFCquad=Yes ExcludeThrottleSet=Yes ExcludeMixtureSet=Yes ExcludePropPitchSet=Yes SepRevsJetsOnly=No ApplyHeloTrim=No UseAxisControlsForNRZ=No FlapsSetControl=0 FlapDetents=No ReverserControl=66292 Reverser1Control=66422 Reverser2Control=66425 Reverser3Control=66428 Reverser4Control=66431 MaxThrottleForReverser=256 AileronTrimControl=66731 RudderTrimControl=66732 CowlFlaps1Control=66162 CowlFlaps2Control=66163 CowlFlaps3Control=66164 CowlFlaps4Control=66165 SteeringTillerControl=0 MaxSteerSpeed=60 Aileron=-16123,0,0,16128 Elevator=-16384,0,0,16128 Rudder=-16253,0,0,16256 LeftBrake=-8192,16384/16 RightBrake=-8448,16384/16 Throttle1=-16384,-13263,-12873,16383/16 Throttle2=-16384,-13523,-12743,16383 Mixture1=-16384,0,0,15104 Mixture2=-16384,0,0,15093 PropPitch1=-16384,-15733,-15733,16383 PropPitch2=-16384,-15733,-15733,16383 SyncSlopePropPitch2=127/128 [Axes.205] 0=0X,1,D,7,0,0,0 1=0Y,1,D,8,0,0,0 2=2Z,1,D,17,0,0,0 23. Save the FSUIPC.ini file 24. Start FSX and ensure that all controls are funtioning with the Huey X Making a separat startup config for FSX inorder to revert Your normal FSUIPC assignments for other default/addon aircraft i.e unassign Axis' in FSX. 25. Locate the Standard.xml : Win XP: C:\Documents and Settings\..user name..\Application Data\Microsoft\FSX\Controls\ Vista & Win 7: C:\Users\..user name..\AppData\Microsoft\FSX\Controls\ 26. Make a copy of the Standard.xml and rename it to HueyX.xml 27. Copy Your FSX.cfg file found here: Win XP: C:\Documents and Settings\..user name..\Application Data\Microsoft\FSX/ Vista & Win 7: C:\Users\..user name..\AppData\Microsoft\FSX\ And paste it into Your \..\Microsoft Flight Simluator X\ main folder 28. Rename that FSX.cfg wich into Huey.cfg 29. Open Huey.cfg with notepad and find these lines: [CONTROLS] Controls_Current=Standard Controls_Default=Standard Change them to read: [CONTROLS] Controls_Current=HueyX Controls_Default=HueyX 30. Save the file 31. Make a copy of You FSX desktop shortcut named "Microsoft Flight Simulator X "and rename it to "FSX-Huey" 32. Right click the new shortcut and select "Properties": 33. Add to the 'target' path: /CFG:Huey.cfg like this: 34. Click "OK" or "Apply" 35. Start FSX with Your normal shortcut "Microsoft Flight Simulator X" and go into Settings - > Controllers -> Controller Axes and unassign all axis again and remember to click Ok to save You settings. You now have two FSX shortcuts... Your old one, named "Microsoft Flight Simulator X", wich will start FSX and have it setup exactly like before when You only used FSUIPC for axis' assignment and calibration. And a new one called "FSX-Huey", wich will start FSX with the required axis' for the Huey X assigned via FSX Voila No further need to make changes in FSX's or FSUIPC's controller assignment, nor to rename files i.e END OF WALKTHROUGH Finn Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
