125hz Joystick #8 not usable
Came across an interesting bug (or feature?) this evening while setting up my Q400 sim for its first flight in a while. I'm building a sim, so at the moment I have 10 different joysticks plugged in. Some BBI-64, some Bodnar BU0836X, a generic card, a throttle quadrant, CH Products rudder pedals and a Honeycomb Alpha yoke.
The way I have my joysticks setup, the Honeycomb Alpha yoke was "joystick 8" in the windows order (J8 in the ini file) when I was assigning axis's in my mjc84.ini file. I could not get the ailerons or elevators to move in the Q400 with the Honeycomb Alpha as Joystick #8 (J8). I eventually unplugged all of my joysticks, and plugged them back in. This time my CH Products rudder pedals were in joystick #8 and the Honeycomb Yoke found itself as J2. The ailerons and elevator moved, but now the rudder pedals stopped working. I unplugged everything once again, and got both the rudder pedals and yoke out of joystick #8 (J8) and they are now in J2 and J7, respectively.
So this leads me to believe that 125hz controls configured via the mjc84.ini will not work when you are trying to use a joystick in position #8 (J8). Is this by design or something that needs to be ironed out?
