302: Commands Assigned to FIP Not Working

What a coincidence of receiving a few emails in the past two weeks asking why the commands (such as the barometric settings — KOHLSMAN_DEC and KOHLSMAN_INC) assigned to the rotation knobs and buttons on the FIPs are not working any more.   After checking their SaiFlightSimX.xml files, I found another coincidence that the <X52Pro> section in the beginning of their files was somehow removed.

Yeah.  I do remember as they reported that the SaiFlightSimX.xml file worked properly without the <X52Pro> section before.   I once was using the file without it as well.   Not sure since when (probably after some driver versions updated) the <X52Pro> section became necessary in order to have the knobs and buttons to function correctly.

Anyway, to play safe, just make sure the <X52Pro> section is intact in the SaiFlightSimX.xml file whether you have the game controller or not.

SaiFlightSimX_Content

Sure, there could be other causes to the malfunctioning of the knobs and buttons on the FIP.

      1. Hi Tom, thank you. But this doesn’t work and I am sorry but do not understand the whole concept. It seems that you need to read the numbers which are displayed from a image to show it on the FIP. also the difference between in HG and hPA is, that hPA is a 4 digit number with standard at 1013, vs. in HG which is 29.92 – actually two digit with two decimals.
        I tried for hours but really cannot figure it out. The above mentioned settings are within 3 places in your gauge XML.

      2. Hi Tom,
        thank you.
        it is the C172_ALT_130815.

        I guess this is the part

        (A:Kohlsman setting MB,mbar) %

        (A:Kohlsman setting MB,mbar) (A:Kohlsman setting MB,mbar) % – 100 * %

        So if the display on the altimeter are ABCD (2992) then I guess the first part are the digits AB and the 2nd CD.
        But not able to figure it…

      3. Tom,
        not at all. I did’t expect you to fix it for me. I was just wondering if this is an easy task or not. I will figure it someday.

  1. Hey Tom, did clean install of windows, FSX, and latest Saitek Drivers. So far, no issues to report, I do like the fix on the instrument assignments. Stock guages suck, when do you think you will have a mod done?
