CH Products USB Pedals Question

Recommended Posts

Hello,I have the (USB) CH Products Yoke and Pedals. I am just using the drivers not one created the virtual device that the CH Products Device Manager.The Yoke Driver seems to work fine. But with the Pedals won't save the sensitivities. See attached Control Dialogs: The last image is when I return to that dialog and it reverted back to Simple...Any Ideas?Barry

If I go out and come back to that dialog, it is able to set the Yoke to advanced but not the pedals...I set them, and when I return it looks like the last image in my original post... My sensitivities are totally wacked or set to the simple which I don't want..Thanks!Barry

Yep thats how it works for me but if you then click on the advanced tab it should show the settings as you put them. Any howwhen in the sim my pedals aren't near as senitive as they were before so I asume that the settings work.One way you might check it out is to set all your sensitives to default, fire up the sim go to the top down view and then go into slew mode (Y key)using the pedals turn it left and right. get out of the sim do your sensitivity thing and go back in to sim and do the same thing, the rotation shuld be slowed down. I have all my senitivities set real low and in slew mode the a/c hardly moves, in any of the directions.http://www.enter.net/photoalbum/data/reddog/905260.jpgSceenshots and Pics athttp://community.webshots.com/user/reddog18951USMC Retired

I can tell it is not saving it...Because there is no difference in the responsivnes... It careens like crazy!When you go back into the sensitivity dialog and select CH USB Pro Pedals, does it display that the setting advanced is selected and are all you settings you saved?My settings are there as far as the axis Brake and rudder, but it de-selects the advanced radio button and reverts it back to simple when I select CH USB Pro Pedals..In other words, does your CH USB Pro Pedals stay set on advanced?That is the problem...Barry

Maybe your fs2002 cofiguration file is write protected? If so then FS2002 cannot rewrite the new settings when you close FS.I DON'T have your problem because I DO use CH control manager: porque eso, no problemo. :) There is no need to actually reprogram the yoke or pedals in CH CM, a blank map of the yoke and pedals mapped together with all default settings works fine. One must one time only calibrate both yoke and pedals in CH CM. And then one time only use the boxes in CH CM to set the sensitivity, gain, and null zone, and one time only save the file xxx.map. If the CH file CMStart.exe is then dropped into C:WindowsStart MenuProgramsStartUp (FS98SE) then everytime you reboot the computer those same sensitivities, gains, and nulls all come back at full automatic. :)EDIT: See thread "Adjusting rudder pedal sensitivity has no effect" for a nifty solution by rcbarend using FSUIPC.dll.== WHK ==

Same Problem...If I use the CM, it creates two virtual devices.One has Aileron, Elevator, THROTTLE, Rudder, BUT NO BRAKES?????The other has Aileron, Elevator, THROTTLE which makes NO SENSE!HAS ANYBODY BEEN ABLE TO GET THESE Drivers whether CH Native or Virtual USB Drivers to work?AND HOW (See image of devices CM sets up??????????)PLEASE HELP!!Barry

A) The guy at stickworks who created CH control manager usually is happy to answer any questions by email, he did for me :) stickworks@worldnet.att.net:( The latest version of CH Control Manager is on CH website:http://www.chproducts.com/retail/tech_support_usb.htmlC) "If I use the CM, it creates two virtual devices. One has Aileron, Elevator, THROTTLE, Rudder, BUT NO BRAKES?????The other has Aileron, Elevator, THROTTLE which makes NO SENSE!"I had _exact_ same problem. The solution (given to me from stickworks guy above) was to remind me the CH readme says to never calibrate CH virtual devices in Windows Control Panel, but to calibrate only in CH Control Manager) and to remind me I may have installed the CH controlers more then once without first completely removing the old installation completely. Doing either of these two things might require completely removing and reinstalling CH Control Manager. And then making brand new maps instead of using the old ones.A normal Uninstall of Control Manger through Windows Control Panel is NOT enough because Windows still retains the bad calibrations for the virtual devices in the registry. I know of two utilities which do this complete registry erasing safely (I had to do this when I had your exact probelem).For deleting all calibrations for all devices in Windows Control panel games aplet:1) Logitech clrcalib.exe at: http://www.wingmanteam.com/latest_software/gadgets.htmFor complete removal of registry references to only the CH branded devices:2) CH DELETE at: http://www.chproducts.com/retail/tech_support_usb.htmlI used 1) (not 2) reinstalled Control Manager and have had zero problems creating maps for FS2002, CFS2, CFS3, Janes WWII, MS Trainsim, etc. for many months now. Control Manager is a great piece of software, in my opinion.== WHK ==

Hi Barry,From your previous post, this is likely part of the problem:>> CH Contol Manager Device 1 contain the following Axis Names:>>>> Aileron>> Elevator>> Throttle>> Rudder (NO BRAKES)>>>>>> CH Contol Manager Device 2>>>> Aileron>> Elevator>> ThrottleIn the Control Manager 1 device, you need to clear the assignment for the rudder. In the Control Manager 2 device you need to clear all three assignments. Once that's done, you need to go assign the X and Y axes to toe brakes and the Z axis to Rudder on Control Manager Device 2.The way the above is set up, both your toe brakes and your yoke are controlling the elevators and ailerons, the yoke throttle and the ProPedals rudder axis is controlling the throttle, and your Prop lever is probably controlling your rudders. FS will try to follow them all, it just takes the data from whichever axis moved last.>> From my previous post, Why does it set up CH Contol Manager Aux 1 Device and CH Contol Manager Aux 2 Device? <http://www.stickworks.com
