Setting CH Pedals to Joystick1 1

Recommended Posts

Hi,I have the CH Pro Pedals USB and the CH Yoke USB. The pedals are on game controller #1, while the yoke is on 2, which messes up some game's controls. How can I change this? Plugging the USB cord in and out doesn't do anything.Thanks a lot,

I have them too, just got them a few weeks ago. both USB and have them pluged into the 2 ports on the back of my system. While they work great for FS2002 they don't work in CFS2 or Crimson Skies.It's a pain getting to the back of the box to plug and unplug them so for now till my new system arrives next week with 2 front USB ports I just fly 2002. sure would like to use them in all the sims!Hope someone can come up with a solution.http://www.enter.net/photoalbum/data/reddog/905260.jpgSceenshots and Pics athttp://community.webshots.com/user/reddog18951USMC Retired

Hi!Hmmmmm, I have the same setup, rudder pedals in #1 and yoke in #2 and I have no problems at all, what controls are you having problems with?, did you install the CH Products Control Manager?, I need to know a little more about your setup in order to help you.If you installed the CH Products Control Manager you need to re-asign a lot of the controls in the yoke and rudder, it's very easy but I have no idea if this is what you need, so tell me more so we can get you up and running.Best of luck!

I have both of these products, and it seems easier to me to set them up if you plug the Yoke in first, get it set up then calibrated, then plug the pedals in set them up and calibrate them, shuldn't be a problem except making sure the proper axis for the pedals are set up in FS2002.If your OS is WinMe or XP the USB drivers are probably already installed, If its Win98 you may have to install the USB drivers. At any rate, remove the Yoke and Pedals by going to, StartSettingsControlPanelgaming Options. This is for WinMe, terminology may differ on XP or 98. Click the remove buttons. Before rebooting unplug your yoke and pedals, after rebooting plug in the Yoke first, calibrate, etc., then plug in the Pedals. I'll bet that this will make your life much easier.Once they are setup if you ever unplug them be sure and plug them back into the same USB connection.

Well unplugging them then plugging the yoke in first solved it. Thanks a lot! :-) Was having problems with some games not supporting two joysticks, so they should work now as they will only "see" the yoke.Cheers,

I'm pretty sure that it doesn't matter which USB port you plug devices into, it's the order you plug them in that determines which joystick ID they get assigned. I've read this on a tech forum somewhere (can't remember which) and my own experiments tend to confirm this.I have a Saitek X36 USB stick/throttle combo and CH USB Pro Pedals. Using them with Flight Sim has never been a problem because it's not restricted to using specific joystick ID's. Some other games, however, assume that there is only one joystick (or other gaming device) and it is ID#1.Try uninstalling all your gaming devices, then re-installing them in the order you want to be referenced as.

FYI:In Windows there's a function "Gaming Options" (Start - Setting - Control Panel).In Gaming Options there's a Tab Controllers Id's that lets you reassign the Id numbers (1 - ...) to each controller, no matter in which order you installed them.And important:- "old" games sometimes only support a controller with Id-1.- At least on WIndows98 (don't know about XP): controllers connected to the gameport MUST be set to Id-1 to ensure proper operation.Rob
