Two Controllers for more Realism

Recommended Posts

 Hi,
In order to make the flight experience more realistic I have (or will have) flight controls for Boeing aircraft (from Honeycomb - Yoke and Throttle Quadrant) as well as Airbus aircraft (from ThrustMaster - Sidestick and Throttle Quadrant).
Now the problem arises that ChasePlane only recognizes one control unit to assign buttons to, so at the moment I use a ThrustMaster joystick to control views (inside / outside) and a hatswitch for pan. If I fly a Boeing aircraft I use the joystick/sidestick to control ChasePlane and a Honeycomb Alpha Flight Yoke to control the aircraft.
There is a post "2 hat switches in Chase Plane", but no end results.
Has anyone solved this problem?

Thank you very much for your response

Both controller's wwill default standard setting and control so this will lead to 'out of control' problems. You cannot us a joystick AND a Flight Yoke. Period.

I don't think it should be so much a PERIOD to that suggestion. I can do the same being requested with the default camera system. Why not with this paid product? Why would it be out of the realm to request such a feature?

Hi,

I have solved my problem - two hat switches in ChasePlane.

You need a paid version of FSUIP.

Program both controller hat switches as buttons and assign a key press. The typical buttons are 32=0deg, 34=90deg, 36=180deg and 38=360. Than look at your FSUIPC.ini file and you will see sequential numbers for the buttons you just programmed. Now there are buttons for a diagonal movement: 33=45deg; 35=135deg; 37=225deg and 39=315deg. These buttons I copied/ pasted and edited in the FSUIPC.ini file, e.g. 45 degree movement or button # 33: is button press 32 and 34 simultaneous and that's why there are two entries in the .ini file.

Here is the pertinant info of my FSUIPC.ini:

[Buttons]
PollInterval=25
ButtonRepeat=20,10
0=R2,32,K68,10     -{Key press: ctl+D}-
1=R2,33,K68,10     -{Key press: ctl+D}-
2=R2,33,K72,10     -{Key press: ctl+H}-
3=R2,34,K72,10     -{Key press: ctl+H}-
4=R2,35,K72,10     -{Key press: ctl+H}-
5=R2,35,K75,10     -{Key press: ctl+K}-
6=R2,36,K75,10     -{Key press: ctl+K}-
7=R2,37,K75,10     -{Key press: ctl+K}-
8=R2,37,K70,10     -{Key press: ctl+F}-
9=R2,38,K70,10     -{Key press: ctl+F}-
10=R2,39,K70,10     -{Key press: ctl+F}-
11=R2,39,K68,10     -{Key press: ctl+D}-
12=R3,32,K68,10     -{Key press: ctl+D}-
13=R3,34,K72,10     -{Key press: ctl+H}-
14=R3,36,K75,10     -{Key press: ctl+K}-
15=R3,38,K70,10     -{Key press: ctl+F}-
16=R3,33,K68,10     -{Key press: ctl+D}-
17=R3,33,K72,10     -{Key press: ctl+H}-
18=R3,35,K72,10     -{Key press: ctl+H}-
19=R3,35,K75,10     -{Key press: ctl+K}-
20=R3,37,K75,10     -{Key press: ctl+K}-
21=R3,37,K70,10     -{Key press: ctl+F}-
22=R3,39,K70,10     -{Key press: ctl+F}-
23=R3,39,K68,10     -{Key press: ctl+D}-
24=P3,4,K51,26     -{Key press: alt+ctl+3}-
25=P3,9,K50,26     -{Key press: alt+ctl+2}-
26=P2,2,K49,26     -{Key press: alt+ctl+1}-
27=P2,1,K51,26     -{Key press: alt+ctl+3}-
28=P2,0,K50,26     -{Key press: alt+ctl+2}-
29=P3,2,K49,26     -{Key press: alt+ctl+1}-

R2 is a Honeycomb Alpha Yoke and R3 is TM Airbus Side stick. Ctl+D/H/K/F are hat switch commands to ChasePlane. Alt+1/2/3 from both controllers I use for "toggle view in/out", previous view and next view in ChasePlane. It all works very well and is not hard to program.

I hope this helps
