Saitek X-56 not working in Prepar3D V3

Recommended Posts

So, I've had the Saitek X-56 Rhino for a while, and it's worked without problems, until about a week ago. Neither the stick or trottle quadrant is working in P3D at the moment, but the wierd thing is it's working in the Saitek program. I've tried most of the usual stuff like changing USB port, I've also done a troubleshooting in Windows, with no results. I am using FSUIPC 4 and I have disabled my controllers in P3D. Very wierd problem, seems like it should be an easy fix.

 

Thanks in advance

/Fred

If you look in your fsuipc.ini file I think you'll find that the ID#'s have changed. Look for a program called JoyID - I beleive there is a link on the FSUIPC forum. This can help get it sorted.

Fred,  you say you have disabled controllers in P3D.
It can't work!

Or am I wrong?

Thanks for the fast response. I downloaded JoyID and it did not work, could possibly be me doing something wrong.. Do you by any chance have a link to that thread on the FSUIPC forums?

When using FSUIPC you should disable your controllers in P3D, otherwise P3D will override FSUIPC, at least that's what froogle said in his video

No, you have to remove buttons and keys assignments and let the controllers ON.

Now I feel a little stupid I must say, so do I have do delete the axis assignments in P3D to make them work in FSUIPC?

Well, fwiw, I have all my controls mapped through FSUIPC5 - SaitekX55 Rhino, CH Yoke, Ch Throttle Quadrant, CH Rudders and I have ALL joysticks disabled in P3Dv4 with no issues. Bewen running that way for years.

Fred, when you say JoyID didn't work - do you mean the program failed to run or you didn't see anything?

You might want to post your FSUIPC.INI file. Also what version of FSUIPC are you using?

No, it is always best to disable controllers. No need to delete any assignments whatsoever. FSUIPC assignments bypass all of the P3D joystick input code.

It sounds like the OP is using an older version of FSUIPC as earlier problems with both X-55 and X-56 were resolved a while back, as well JoyIDs. And he/she only needs to look at the About screen in FSUIPC Options, or on most any of the documentation, or in the place where he/she downloaded FSUIPC from, to find a link to my Support Forum, which is the best place to go for Support of FSUIPC, surprisingly.

:-)) Indeed!
I am using FSUIPC for almost a century (huh!) but didn't know that.
Thank you for your input Pete.

So Fred, you have the solution, get the latest FSUIPC and you'll use your X-56 flawlessly as I do.
FSUIPC + SPAD Next are doing a perfect job with P3D v3 and v4.

Well I did not see any change after downloading JoyID. I'm using FSUIPC version 4 in P3D V3, do you think it would be a good idea to change over to FSUIPC version 5?

Thanks for your response Pete, I saw yesterday that version 5 of FSUIPC is now availible on Simmarket, do you think that I should upgrade to that version instead of using version 4?

FSUIPC5 is the 64-bit version and only runs in Prepar3D version 4. FSUIPC4 is the 32-bit version and it remains the version for FSX, FSX-SE and all Prepar3D versions up to but not including 4.

The assignments in your INI file are a bit mixed up. With several devices you should be using Joy Letters (change the parameter in [JoyNames] so that they don't get misassigned.

Please post details of your X-56 problem in my Support Forum. That is where I do actually support FSUIPC. There are interim updates to FSUIPC 4.969 which might help but I need more information first.

Thank you very much for the answer I'll be sure to check out the FSUIPC forums next time, but if I may I'd just like you to clearify what exactly I need to do with the joy names? Do you want me to change the numbers in front of the controllers, or is it something else that I need to change, if so, what do I change it to?
