Trim Wheel

As you will have gathered from the rather verbose posts I made on your forum, I have a Saitek trim wheel. Excellent companion for FS Force. There is a flaw either in the wheel itself or the driver, that causes the controller to drop out on first use, when Windows is started. If I remember to roll th...

Update

Greetings, I understand that you are looking at an update to the software. It really should be a paid upgrade. We've been getting off free for quite awhile, with the exception of the P3D upgrade, which was almost free. I do have 2 suggestions for the new version. In a previous post, you viewed my ha...

Re: Trim Gauge Again

Happy New Year to Russ and Everyone, As you are no doubt painfully aware, I have been thrashing around, quite unsuccessfully, with the software inconsistency issue. I have been hovering around a solution and of course, much of it has to do with my own "duh" moment. I noticed that if I removed all jo...

Re: Trim Gauge Again

Thanks for the reply, I uninstalled and reinstalled FS-Force. No trim gauge showing for Default C172 (imported from FSX), A2A C172 or Dodosim. I should point out that on the first reinstall, I could not test the forces. I had to run the install routine again; and was able to test the forces. Here is...

Trim Gauge Again

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year, I am sorry to keep nagging you about the trim gauge. I seems to be very inconsistent. I looked in several aircraft, and there was an entry for FS Force. Here is the entry for the A2A C172: [Window Titles] Window17=FSForce Trim Gauge [Window17] Position=8 Size_mm=61,23 ...

Re: Trim Gauge

Well...I caught the problem. It was staring me in the face and I didn't notice it. There were 2 entries for FS Force in panel.cfg; stuck together. One under [Default] and one under [window15].

I should add that removing the [Default] entry got my trim gauge in the C182

Thanks,
Graham

Re: Trim Gauge

Greetings, Just a follow up. As I pointed out in the edit, I have the gauge in the A2A C172. No gauge in the A2A C182. Can you give me a template to use? I want to see if the entry in the panel.cfg file is correct. The reason I say this is at the top of the file, the entry for FS Force is Window15. ...

Re: Trim Gauge

I loaded the default c172 from FSX. I got the trim gauge. It hides behind the taskbar in Windows 7. Have to move it to expose it. The trim gauge shows in both 1920 x 1080 and 2715 x 1527. Loaded the A2A 182. No trim gauge. Loaded the A2A 172. No trim gauge. I then loaded the default c172 and changed...

Trim Gauge

Greetings, I have migrated to P3D...currently version 2.4. I have the P3D version of FS Force and it is working as expected, except the trim gauge very rarely shows on the screen. I ran the profile manager a couple of times, but no joy. The program is alerting me when new aircraft are installed to r...

It appears I'm talking to myself :) Scratch the last post. I did the overfly in Friday Harbour and got FS Force trim when I didn't want it. Everything still good from the ground.

Trim

Just a follow up. I deleted the trim assignment in FSX for R2. That took care of the issue. Even when I start in the air, if trim is set to FSX, FS Force does not trim the plane. FYI

Trim

I reinstalled FSForce to start fresh. Without any custom profiles, my test was the same as yours. I ran the Medium GA with trim set to FSForce and then FSX. I then created a new profile and assigned the Beech to it. Same deal. Worked ok. I based it on the default profile. I then created a new profil...

Thanks for the reply. I noticed it on the Aircrations ultralite and the Airbus. I set up separate profiles for each. I'll do the test and report back.
