weird throttle issues

Recommended Posts

It happened as a result of my doing something stupid: during a flight, I lost control of the aircraft and crashed. While FSX was trying to  reset itself, I closed the program.

Now all aircrafts have the throttles malfunctioning: they are stuck in reverse, and the movement is very erratic, full of wild swings. Essentially, they are not usable.

I've done everything possible:

1. deleted registry files

2. recalibrated with and without fsuipc. Incidentally, calibration looks normal. The throttles move very nicely.

3. replaced controls.xml


In sum, the joystick works normally in the calibration window, both in Windows and FSX. In FSX, all aircrafts starts with the throttles in reverse, and they all swing wildly when I push them forward.

Flaps and trim work fine.


Any clues?

3. replaced controls.xml

You mean standard.xml in the Fsx/Controls folder? Or is this a file from some type of addon? If you recalibrated and then replaced this file, you might need to recalibrate it again. Never heard of this file being replaced though. Don't think the standard.xml can be replaced (like deleted, restart FSX and let the standard.xml rebuild?). Don't think that is possible.
