Greetings Sebastian!Somewhere else, either on AVSIM or on "the other site", somebody posted about this issue. It seems that Elite is not even considering making their hardware compatible with FS2004. In fact they asked that guy, after he emailed them about the issue: "What on earth gave you the idea that we would make our stuff compatible with FS2004?"Although it's a rather unpleasant way of reacting to a question by a paying customer, in a way they have a point: the Elite hardware was/is made and intended to cooperate with the Elite software... it was never made, nor meant, for MSFS anyway. Fair enough... but I for one will VERY certainly wait for GoFlight to come out with their throttle units!Jaap Verduijn.

Hello Sebastian,My Elite King Air Power Quadrant has worked with FS2K4 since day one. In fact it even worked before my GoFlight modules as I had to wait for GoFlight to issue their FS2K4 update.Here is what I did: I copied all the EliteFS files and folder from FS2K2 modules folder into FS2K4 modules folder. I think I did not copy the EliteFS.ini file and let Elite build it the first time I used it in FS2K4. Then I added the following lines in my FS9.cfg file (you'll find it in document and settings/"your user folder"/application data/microsoft/fs9:[OLDMODULES]EliteFS.dll=1By now, Elite's TQ is working fine together with my GoFlight console.JAAP,Do you happen to have a clue for the other thread you were mentioning. I might be able to help this guy with my solution.Cheers to both of you.J.J.JJ StruyfBraine-L'AlleudBelgiumhttp://jdtllc.com/images/RCsupporter.jpg

Hi JayJay!Actually I don't even remember if it was here, or on "the other site". I hop from here to there, and from there to here, y'know (grin)!However, that guy has kind of had it with Elite, on account of their ill-mannered and contemptious reactions to his email for help. At least that's what he said - I haven't seen their reactions with my own eyes, so I wouldn't truly know.Be well!Jaap Verduijn.

Sebastian,Did you add the following to your FS9.cfg file:[OLDMODULES]EliteFS.dll=1It also did happen to me (after a Windows Update session -I'm using Windows XP) that it did not recognize my FSUIPC 3. What I did is to temporarily remove the Elite files, delete the EliteFS.ini file, sart FS2K4, leave FS2K4, reinstall the Elite files in the modules folder and restart FS2K4 which then recognized the Elite Throttle quadrant.Which version of Windows do you use?J.J.JJ StruyfBraine-L'AlleudBelgiumhttp://jdtllc.com/images/RCsupporter.jpg

I received a different response from Elite, their tech support e-mailed me saying that it would be a couple of weeks before an update to make the king air throttle compatible w/ FS2004 is available. In the mean time I have followed the work around in this thread but am getting the same error message regarding the outdated version of fsuipc. However, the throttle is recognized and can be calibrated within the elite configuration menus; it just will not operate the throttle, prop & condition levers in the aircraft, which makes me think it may have something to do with fsuipc. Is there a work around to get it to recognize version 3 of fsuipc?

Are you using the serial or usb throttle quad? I am using the serial quad (serial driver also)with the Universal Control Interface 5 and fsuipc 3.0.4. Maybe that has something to do with the problem?

Can I ask which version of the KA throttle are you using (serial or usb)? Also, I have UCI 5 & the serial throttle, but can not get them to work even after following your work around. I keep getting an error message saying my fsuipc is an old version, even though I upgraded it to version 3.0.4 payware. The throttle is functioning in the elite config menus and can be calibrated, but it does not effect the throttle, prop & condition in the sim.Anyway, I'm glad to hear that you got it working, even if I have to wait a while for the "official" fix from elite! Thanks.

Hey guys, Elite is in fact updating the driver. I have a beta copy and payware FSUIPC and it does work well. Hang tight. They will have the final copy out very soon.

I hope someone is still monitoring this topic. I see it has been quiet since August. I just received a new King Air Power Quadrant. I can't get my PC to recognize it at all. No "New Hardware detected" I tried it with my old slower PC and it is recognized but when I try to calibrate it the Game Controller won't recognize it. I wrote to Elite. Waiting for a reply. In the meantime can anyone help? I have the USB model.PC Specs:Dell Dimension XPS P4, 3.0GHz1024 MB DDR SDRAM @ 400MHz128MB DDR ATI Radeon 9800 PRO200 GB hard drive @7200 RPMWindows XP Home SP2Using direct input to USB not through a hub. Is it possible that the drivers for whatever I used the port for previously has the port "blocked"? If so how do I clear it? I don't remember what I used it for previously. I don't have any "virgin" ports left on my 6 port USBs. Thanks in advance.

Guys, the driver on Elite has been available for awhile. I am using serial elite. Just go to the site. They have two different drivers. One for 2k2, and one for FS9. And they have them for both serial and USB.P4 2.81024 DDRAM800 Bus36 gig SATA hardrive80 gig harddriveATI Radeon 9700 ProCH yoke/pedalsElite Multi quadrant19" inch monitor-Soundblaster PCI 512Win XPCommercial ASEL Instrument -285 hoursAOPALawyerPilots Bar Association"Men without dreams are never free, twas thus this way and thus will ever be."

OOPS! I forgot to mention that I had downloaded the drivers and copied them to a CD. They don't do me any good if I can't get my PC to recognize the quadrant in the first place.
