Not recognizing Joystick PTT


Recommended Posts

I am using the Saitek X52 with Windows 7 and have not had any issues with previous clients. I am able to use the mouse at anytime on the stick and the computer is recognizing the inputs. I have reinstalled the joystick drivers, run vPilot as an admin and reinstalled with no luck. When I go to set my PTT vPilot doesn't pick it up.

 

Anyone else having this issue with a fix?

The X52 has a built in mouse that functions just as your mouse would. I can click the screen, everything works etc. However when I click the PTT button on the joystick vPilot doesn't recognize that anything is going on. So long story short I can't set it

How did you make it work with SB? To my knowledge it does not support joystick buttons for PTT, only keyboard keys. Did you use a piece of software (such as FSUIPC) which maps the joystick button to a keyboard key?

 

 

I didn't touch anything to make it work with SB...I only used it twice to get onto the network with P3D then took Marcs advice and waited for this client.

 

 

If anyone could walk me thru mapping as a work around (or what may be something that I think is an issue which isn't) that'd be great

Got me stumped ... I don't know how you possibly got it working with SB without doing any mapping.

 

I'm not familiar with the Saitek ... is it possible that it has driver software that does the mapping for you, and thus the buttons don't appear to vPilot as regular joystick button presses?

Ahh ... I'm sensing a pattern here.

 

Not sure why the Saitek doesn't show up as a regular USB joystick device for vPilot. Could you try using FSUIPC to map the joystick button to a keypress, then configure that key as PTT in vPilot, and let me know if that works?

Ok, with the Saitek X52 Pro, [Mod - Happy Thoughts]igning a keyboard key to the PTT in vPilot and then using FSUIPC to [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ign the desired X52 button to this keyboard key does the trick...

 

But it would be nice to figure out why it doesn't work "natively".

 

Otherwise, very cool piece of software !

 

It's bye bye FSInn for me

 

One suggestion: could you make, like FSInn had that possibility, a "minified" version to keep on top of the FSX screen instead of the full interface, which takes up quite some real estate.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

Same here X-52 Pro, but that is not the reason I am posting, just to make a clarification about SB PTT configured with a button.

 

SB PTT would work via FSUIPC PTT FS Commands, without the need to configure anything else neither in SB or FSInn for that matter.

 

X-52 is seen by windows as a regular USB game controller with it's own driver it is recognized by FS without any issues.

 

Regards,

Jose
