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...

Very impressive! Hopefully that will motivate more people to build their own yoke.

"Back Aileron" : Most people in the aviation industry refer to that as the elevator. That would by your Y-axis.

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...

Additional Aircraft Locations

FS Force v2.12 has just been released which has the ability to recognize the presence of additional add-on aircraft that are not in the default locations. This involves making special entries into FSForce.cfg. For instance, consider the following example: [ExtraSimObjects.FSX-SE] C:\Program Files (x...

I know you said you calibrated your joystick, but we need to make sure the physical joystick is sending correct signals to the simulator. Please follow these steps: ⋅ Start a flight and just leave the aircraft sitting on the tarmac. ⋅ Make sure your FF stick is centered. ⋅&n...

Re: Error in routine AirEffect.ProgramForces???

According to the .cfg file you posted, it looks like you're using the X-axis for a trimwheel?? Are you sure that is what you wanted? And you don't have anything programmed for trim up/down via buttons? Please go into Profile Manger / Controller Assignments and review your settings.

Re: Error in routine AirEffect.ProgramForces???

Those type of errors generally indicate a faulty joystick. What is the history of your joystick? Have you used it successfully with any other FS sim? Try downloading my ForceTest program from the support page and test out the various functions to make sure it is working fully. Also, please post the ...

Yes, I've considered something like that. Just need to allocate some time to actually make the necessary changes.
