    Angry frustration

    I am getting so frustrated with my phidgets 8/8/8 board. I am new to this cockpit building but have been using flight sim for about nine years now. I purchased the 8/8/8 and some of the sliding potentiometers and downloaded the phidgets 21 manager and fs2phighets and I am trying to use it with FSX. I have purchased FSuIPC 4 and right now im trying to get the sliders to work because I am intending to build a cessna 172 simulator please help me!!!

    If you haven't already, try eliminating those axis assignments in FS. There may be a conflict.

    ?

    I think what he is saying is make sure you setup the assignments for the pots which you are using with the 8/8/8 thru FSUIPC and delete the identical assignments in FSX, that might be whats causing the conflict. It would be in your best interest to configure your yoke and rudder pedals thru FSUIPC also.

    Page 37

    There is more to it then a basic explanation but on page 37 of the FSUIPC *.PDF it goes into detail on how to set it up.

    Also the official Peter Dowson forum can help with your specific setup.

    Hopefully that helps

    Check with Alan Dyer on this website.
    He will need your:
    Phidgets version,
    Library version,
    OS (Windows, Mac whatever...)
    And a copy of your log file.

    download

    sorry for time lapse I downloaded it from the phidgets website. now when I try to run fs2phidgets it says its configuring the libraries and then it runs through the setup and comes up with and error message that just has an error symbol and an ok button but no text and when I push ok the progress bar goes down and the entire process restarts.
