Etienne The fact that you are getting forces with the virtual aircraft is a good sign. Note that the trim wheel on the aircraft control panel is NOT supposed to move when you make trim changes. FS Force completely bypasses the MSFS trim system. There is a section in my docs about that. If you haven'...

Dreaman,

Does that error happen all the time when MSFS and Profile Manager are running at the same time, or was it just once?

FaxCap,

I'm a little suspicious of your joystick. Either that or it could be a Win2k issue. I've emailed you a little FF utility that comes with the DirectX SDK. You can use it to see if your stick is actually working.

Try going into Control Panel > Game Controllers > Properties. Usually there is a page there to test the forces on your joystick. You click different buttons and it plays various sample forces. Do you get forces there? Sometimes I've seen that "unstick" a situation like this. You're running W2K, righ...

Try to see if you can get some forces in the Profile Manager. Shut down MSFS, start up Profile Manager, go to the second page and select a profile ("Light GA" for example). Click on Edit Profile, and throttle up the Virtual Aircraft. You should get some pavement grooves and centering forces. If not,...

Good question. I've often wonder that myself! :) I've never flown a real helicopter, so I have no idea how the controls should feel. Is there a centering force? Does it vary with airspeed? Are the controls very loose, or stiff? Do helicopters have trim mechanisms? In reality, it shouldn't matter, be...
