How to copy FSUIPC assignments to new install.

Recommended Posts

I asked this at Pete's forum but not much luck yet.I copied my FSUIPC.ini file over and it worked for my throttle quads except they were reversed.No problem,I just flipped them.My keyboard assignments did not copy.Any thoughts?Thanks,Ron

The assignments relate to the GUID which is assigned by the system. No way your old ini file contains GUIDs that match your new system. I'd start looking there first.

FSUIPC Key Assignments that apply to all aircraft, should be in the [Keys] section of the fsuipc.ini and should copy over, if you copy over a valid ini.

 

Remember that when you install FSUIPC it creates a new ini, (even if you already kept the old one in your modules folder), so you must install FSUIPC first, then it's a good idea to launch FSX, then close it, and then copy in your old ini.

 

Alternatively, if you assigned the key commands for individual aircraft only, they should still be in the ini file, but in their own section for that aircraft.

 

Eg.... here is my entry, for some specific key assignments for the Just Flight DC-6

 

[Profile.JF DC-6B]
1=JF_DouglasDC6BP
 
[Keys.JF DC-6B]
2=90,8,65580,0
4=72,8,65725,0
6=78,8,65729,0
8=75,8,65726,0
10=219,8,65880,0
12=221,8,65879,0
14=57,8,65662,0
16=48,8,65663,0
 
The other possibility is maybe that your key assignments were via LUA or MCRO (Macro) files? ... (there are many ways to achieve the same goal in FSUIPC! :smile:)....... now those two methods don't live in the ini files, as they have their own separate files (eg .... Airbus_X.lua or 767.mcro) within the modules folder of FSX.

Vic is correct.

I just recently did this and and it worked a treat.

If you have

[JoyNames]
AutoAssignLetters=Yes

It should be pretty stright forward.

As Vic mentioned, there is now way the the system assingned GUID's will be the same.

Briefley what I did was copy all the sections from my old FSUIPC4.INI file EXCEPT the [JoyNames] section, we need the new GUID's, into the new FSUIPC4.INI file.

Then I had to adjust the letters to match the rest of the file.

For example:

This is from the .ini file from the new install of FSUIPC4
[JoyNames]
AutoAssignLetters=Yes
0=Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals
0.GUID={56D2A0C0-3781-11E3-8002-444553540000}
1=Saitek Pro Flight Yoke
1.GUID={56D2A0C0-3781-11E3-8003-444553540000}
2=BU0836X Interface
2.GUID={8C0259C0-3781-11E3-8001-444553540000}
3=BU0836X Interface
3.GUID={9F9D1E70-3781-11E3-8002-444553540000}
A=Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals
A.GUID={56D2A0C0-3781-11E3-8002-444553540000}
B=Saitek Pro Flight Yoke
B.GUID={56D2A0C0-3781-11E3-8003-444553540000}
C=BU0836X Interface
C.GUID={8C0259C0-3781-11E3-8001-444553540000}
D=BU0836X Interface
D.GUID={9F9D1E70-3781-11E3-8002-444553540000}
 
I had to change it thus. (Spot the difference.)
[JoyNames]
AutoAssignLetters=Yes
0=Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals
0.GUID={56D2A0C0-3781-11E3-8002-444553540000}
1=Saitek Pro Flight Yoke
1.GUID={56D2A0C0-3781-11E3-8003-444553540000}
2=BU0836X Interface
2.GUID={8C0259C0-3781-11E3-8001-444553540000}
3=BU0836X Interface
3.GUID={9F9D1E70-3781-11E3-8002-444553540000}
C=Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals
C.GUID={56D2A0C0-3781-11E3-8002-444553540000}
B=Saitek Pro Flight Yoke
B.GUID={56D2A0C0-3781-11E3-8003-444553540000}
D=BU0836X Interface
D.GUID={8C0259C0-3781-11E3-8001-444553540000}
A=BU0836X Interface
A.GUID={9F9D1E70-3781-11E3-8002-444553540000}
 
As you can see, I have four controlers, Saitek Rudders, Saitek Yoke and two BU0836X cards.

If you look at the [buttons] section,(below), it's not too hard to figure out which controler needs which letter.

(Make sure you change the letterd for both the name and the GUID together. Don't mix them up, and as usual, make copies of everything before you start so if you do make a mistake you can go back to the begining.)

As you can see in the sample below...

30=RB,32,C65734,0 ;    Pan_Up

The first letter after the '=' sign in this case 'R' tells us 'Repeat'. This could also be: 'P', 'Pulse'; 'H', 'Hold' or 'U' (Un)Pulse'

The next letter, 'B', refers to device 'B' (B=Saitek Pro Flight Yoke)

and

50=PA,0,C66056,0 ;       Pannel Lights On

Here the 'A' referes to device 'A' (A=BU0836X Interface)

Hope this helps and is not too confusing,
Chris.

Thanks for the reply.I seem to somehow have everything working.The throttle quadrants were reversed.Would this have anything to do with which USB ports I plugged them into?Just curious.I just switched them physically on my real desktop.Thanks for the info which I will save for future reference.Ron

Don't know. I tried to recreate this myself with two controllers of the same type. Didn't bother them.

 

Anyway, I'm pleased you're up and running.

 

Regards,

Chris.
