View Full Version : Need Help with adjusting sensitivity

07-22-2005, 11:19 AM
Hey all,
Got a weird problem. Just hooked up my new CH HOTAS and PF recognizes all 3 devices. HOWEVER, when I go into the input section to adjust the sliders, I only get pitch and roll choices to adjust. No YAW. This is weird since I can use my rudders in flight and even use the toe brakes - however the sensitivity is just too much. Got any ideas why PF is not showing me YAW? It sees my rudders as ID3, my throttle as ID2 and stick as ID1. If I go into the ini file and find the settings for the rudders, will changing the values there impact the rudders even if they dont show in the controller screen?

Anyone else have this problem?

Thanks in advance!

Everybody is having this problem ... that is ... everybody using more than one controller of which sensitivities need to be adjusted.

PF can only change sensitivity for the first controller.

But there is a solution: Read Tully's guide on sticks (http://www.airwarfare.com/tech/sticks.htm).(Especially the part on 'I added a second controller ...')
Or wait a while, I am working on a tool that could help 'solve' this problem ... it's currently in it's testing stage ...

Have fun!

go to the ch forum and DL the CH Manager:
Also DL the tutorial for the CH manager.

it takes a little while to get the feel of the manager, but it will allow all your CH gear to be seen as one device, and you can adjust sensitivities through it while leaving game settings on default. Also has maps for buttons and trim, etc you can DL. Just don't expect to have it all running in 5 minutes, it took a good hour or two to get mine the way I like it.
But if you do your research on the CH forum you'll be amazed how much you can program into your hotas.

Thanks guys. So my alternatives are to either edit the ini or use my CH manager to make it look like I have only one device. Hmm, decisions, decisions. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

I'll have to think on this one a bit. My gut reaction is to edit the ini but I may be better off in the long run making it look like one device as I plan on having multiple installs of PF.

Thanks for the advice,

Or you could become an official beta-tester of IL2-Sticks!

PM me yer Email address and I'll send you the thing! (As an alternative to 'edit the ini')

(But, having the CH stuff act as one controller could work even better, or, well, just as good!)

Have Fun!

Start with CH-Manager, that should sort you out. My article is a useful read anyway, so have a look at the "Joysticks..." link under my sig picture.
