I have just installed FS2K2 and am using a MS Joystick FF 2. Intially all was well but suddenly I seem to have a permanant L rudder input.

I have tried uninstalling both FS2K2 & the joystick software and re-installing after removing any leftover registery entries (W98SE) and any files in Explorer but I still have the problem.

I have deleted the joystick rudder axis in the FS2K2 settings and re-allocated it to Z rotation and looking at the Joystick settings through the Sidewinder software shows the 'stick is calibrated correctly, so...... Any solutions?

If you are flying single props, its natural. It's called P-factor. Its really a long explinaton, but ill just leave it as the way the air circulates off the prop and around the aircraft.
You can actually turn it off in the realisim settings. Try it and see if it works for you.

If you look at your a/c via the spotter plane view you can see the rudder is actually hard over to the left. All a/c are affected.

In that case it is NOT callibrated correctly...
Also check FSUIPC and the Windows callibration...

A frechly installed stick is hardly ever callibrated correctly, just because the driver says it can see the stick doesn't mean it's been callibrated...



I wish I were flying

When I go the the properties page for the stick in Windows it shows the rudder centred and twisting the stick shows full and equal range L & R. There is also full and equal range on the 'X' & 'Y' axis.

Selecting 'calibrate' through FS2K2 takes you to the same windows page as above.

Happened to me all the time in FS2002 and NASCAR 2003, but with a Logitech Wingman. I had to completely turn off my PC and then back on, and it worked.

Hey,
Yeah, had the same thing happen to me with a Logitech Wingman. There is a temporary fix when you look in assignments, there is a all centered rudder assignment, which I have forgotten now, but do that. Also, if your autorudder is not turned on in the data file for joysticks, that would cause it. If you need more info on where to put the "1" in the data file, just respond. Good Luck.

Sincerely,
no1racer

Call up microsoft. There are 2 files which need to be renamed ever so often to ensure correct operation. I can't remember off hand what they are. If you email me I can look through my papers and tell you exactly what to do.  Smile

Eh, safe yourself a lot of trouble and just go into FSUIPC and to the Technical Tab. Check the boxes called "Eliminate Elevator Spike", "Eliminate Rudder Spike" & "Eliminate Aileron Spike". That's the most common error.
