Saitek yoke, EZDok and hat switch question

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm using the Saitek yoke and I have EZdok. I have been using both for several years, but I reinstalled everything on a new system recently (don't have the old one anymore).

 

I set up the a, s, shift a, shift s (or whatever the instructions said to do) and I removed the hat assignment fro FSX.

 

The hat switch works fine in the VC, but in spot/locked spot, I can only move left or right. I cannot move up and down. On my old system, I didn't have this issue.

 

I want to experiment with reassigning it in FSX, but I can't figure out what to assign it to. What control do I need to assign the hat switch to in FSX?

 

I do have a pretty good backup from my old install but I cannot find any assignment for the hat switch in the controls.xml. Is this the right place to look?

 

Any other ideas on how I can fix this? 

 

Thanks!

I had that too the last time I installed Ezdok. I could only move left and right. I was certain that I had set up the shift-A, shift-S, etc, and wasted a lot of time trying to figure it out. However, it turned out that I had forgotten to delete at least one of those commands from the FSX assignments.

Thanks for the quick responses.

 

The program is fully registered, not copied from a previous install. ECZA cfg has been run.

 

I looked through all of the assignments and a, s, shift a, shift s are not assigned in normal or slew mode. As a second check, I tried to assign them to a control. All are listed as available.

I know this is a little late, but I thought I would share the solution just in case someone else has an issue.

 

I think I misread instructions somewhere.

 

Do delete a, s, shift-a and shift-s assignments in FSX. Do not delete the "view (pan)" hat switch assignment for FSX.
