Buttons on Saitech flight yoke

Recommended Posts

Evening. I've got a Saitech flight yoke and have been attempting (for quite some time now) to get FS2C to recognize the button presses. Windows reports them as buttons 7 & 8 and FSUIPC reports them as 6 & 7. Of course, I think FSUIPC starts at 0 instead of 1 like Windows. Now, I've used BOTH combinations in FS2C but it will not recognize them at all. The are not defined at all via FSUIPC, so there's no conflict there. In my FS9 767 version of FS2C, it does ok, but that's probably because of the assigning actual keypresses to them (marker beacon etc). FS2C is not catching the direct interrupts for these 2 buttons. I looked at the panel files and it IS updating the information in there. Regular ADD/SUBTRACT buttons work fine. Any ideas?-Rick

Yup. That seemed to work. FSUIPC let me assign my joystick button to emulate a keypress, so I was able to by-pass it that way. Thanx for the tip. BTW, has anyone reported a problem with the new updated version of the Airbus v1 & v2 causing Vista 64 to crash when trying to load? I had to go back to the old version to get it to work.-Rick

This one is a FS2C update error. All I get out of the viewer is:Faulting application fs9.exe, version 9.1.0.40901, time stamp 0x4135a208, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, time stamp 0x00000000, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x00800080, process id 0xd5c, application start time 0x01c9bc8afea6a26cwhich doesn't tell me squat. I DO know that if I disable FS2C in FS9, I don't get the crash. Reactivate it, and FS9 crashes. Weird stuff-Rick
