Controls setup profile

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have different joysticks and throttle quads that I use for different aircraft. Will sim starter profile allow me to keep all controls plugged in and just load the one I chose for a particular profile without having to go into p3d options/settings/controls and deleting all the inputs of the controls I'm not using every time I want to change aircraft?

Thx Lee

Fsuipc allows custom control profiles per aircraft automatically loaded when you select the aircraft.

Amazes me that there are still folks out there  not using this feature.

Simstarter NG will allow different fsuipc setups for each Simstarter profile, but really Fsuipc is all you need for this type of task

I don't have P3D, so perhaps this won't apply, but in FSX.cfg the user can specify which Control.xml file to use.  

 

The control.xml file is where FSX keeps the controller and keyboard commands.  The filename can be included in a SIMstarter ConfigSet file under the [Controls] section. 

 

I currently have several versions of my control.xml file, named differently, that I use with certain aircraft.

 

FSUIPC profiles is still the way to go for yokes, joysticks, etc., but the control.xml option is available for SIMstarter users who prefer it.
