Re: trim indicator

Are those two pictures of the same aircraft, from the same FS session, and also from the same flight? What aircraft is that? In general, some specialized 3rd party aircraft have non-standard gauges and panels, and as a result FS Force is unable to install it's custom gauge, so it falls back to displ...

No, that option needs to be off.

Re: FFB2 always under tension

For the most part, what you are seeing is normal behaviour. The only time that FS Force has any control over the joystick is when FS Force is running, and FS Force only runs when P3D runs. When you exit P3D, FS Force no longer has any control, and it is completely up to Windows and the joystick driv...

Re: FFB2 always under tension

Do you mean that the centering force is at 100% all the time? Please try to explain what is going wrong in more detail.

Re: Engine Vibrations

Check your null zone settings in FSX. They generally default to values that are larger than what you would probably want.

Re: Engine Vibrations

There are no engine vibrations during normal operation, except during the take-off run, but only if you have "Complex Vibs" or "Run-up vibs" selected under the Ground OPs tab of Profile Manager. Re: the Iris subfolder: the Setup program should have already copied that in, assumin...

Re: I broke auto start in p3d v4

Everything looks good in your .xml files. I'm not sure why it is not working for you. No one has ever reported a problem like this before. At least you can start FS Force from within the sim. Just so you know, you could also start it from the Start menu, or you could create a shortcut on your desktop.

Re: I broke auto start in p3d v4

Go into Profile Manager / Options, and set both Launch Options to "Don't Launch", and the set them both back to "Auto Launch".

If that doesn't work, try re-installing FS Force.

Re: Flight Sim World?

Well, I downloaded FSW yesterday and tried to get FS Force working with it, but had no luck. It doesn't seem to be reading the DLL.XML files, so my DLL is not getting loaded. I hadn't looked at FSW since May, and I'm pretty impressed at the number of updates since then. It seems DTG is pretty seriou...

Re: FS Force and P3D V4

Well, that definitely explains why your aircraft is pulling to the left. Your joystick may be defective. It is probably sending out a constant hard-left signal even though you are not twisting the handle. I think you said you already tried calibrating, but you might want to try it again, paying spec...

If you look in the external view, or the virtual cockpit, is the rudder hard left? I do not known what to look at. ⋅ Start a flight and just leave the aircraft sitting on the tarmac. ⋅ Make sure your FF stick is centered. ⋅ Look down in the virtual cockpit at the rudde...
