I'm planning to add axis support to the interface in the new year. I assumed most people had and would use FSUIPC so didn't bother including support for axis in the initial release.
Do you have FSUIPC?
All you need to do is enable the TQ6 support in the Interface, this will automatically assign all the buttons and reverse thrusters.
In FSUIPC you need to assign the spoiler, throttles and flaps axis. Do you know how to do this?
I'm curious if there is any information on how to assign the spoiler, throttles and flaps axis via FSUIPC? I've owned the registered version of FSUIPC for years but must admit I've only used some features and have never setup any controllers.
Any info available on how to accomplish this?
Steveo38, That would be incredible. Thank you very much.
I've created the step by step guide. You can find it here:
Steve, Thank you so very much.
This is perfect.
I've just remembered that you must ensure the axis have not been assigned in FSX or there will be a conflict and it won't work as expected. You can do this in FSX by going into Options, Settings and then Controls ...
If all of your joysticks, yokes and throttles are configured in FSUIPC, the simplist thing to do is just untick "Enable Controller(s)".
If you can't do that, click on the "CONTROL AXES" tab, select the "GF-TQ6 Throttle System" in the "Controller type" combo box and delete the assignments in the Assignment list. Keep an eye on this though, as FSX tends to add them back later on, so its best to move everything over to FSUIPC as soon as you can and then disable all the Controllers in FSX.
I'll update the document this evening with this information.
I downloaded your new PMDG driver. I was wondering, when I double click on the PMDG exe, should I disconnet from the GF config that I am connected to?
GFConfig profiles are compatiable with the PMDG driver. However the rules are:
- Create different profiles for FSX default aircraft and the NGX.
- Don't assign commands to specific device controls in both the PMDG driver and the GFConfig NGX Profile.
- Ensure the MCP PRO and EFIS devices are set to compatiable add-on in GFConfig
- Ensure the MCP Advanced is set to Level-D in GFConfig.
