View Full Version : 737 throttles go bezerk!

I flew from ESSB to ENGM today when after disengaging the AP I noticed I only had control of 1 throttle with the lever(I have an CH FS Yoke), no 2 did nothing. This used to happen in FS2K as well once in a while. Whats going on? Anybody know?

Never seen it in FS2K2 but did with FS2K using CH joystick. No idea why but hit E,1,2 to reconnect both engines to throttle.

This has happened to me as well and I have a Logitech Wingman Interceptor so I don't think it's got anything to do with the CH.
Another bug to report to MS I guess.
Another thing that annoys me is that I have 3 hat buttons (POW) and FS2002 can only use one. In FS2K I used all 3, 1 for pan view, 1 for look around and 1 for rudder, this is not possible in FS2K2.

LAST EDITED ON Jan-13-02 AT 10:22AM (EDT)[p]I know the answer to this one because the same thing happened to me. Ever notice how if you forget to unplug your CH yoke (and pedals if you got them) before restarting your computer, you end up with the game recognizing 2 yokes (and 2 rudder pedals if you got them)? For some reason, with the USB CH controls, you must unplug them before you restart your computer. This seems to send your earlier keymaps of your throttle levers into a tizzy.
To fix that, unplug your CH Product Yoke (and rudder pedals if you got them) from the USB ports and restart. When you plug them back in after that, it'll recognize just the CH Product controls that you have plugged in and the "phantom" controls will no longer be there.
So, you must reconfigure the thottle levers. And to do this, go under "controls" and "assignments" from the airplane view. Next, select your CH Product Yoke and switch the drop down to "joystick axis/axes". Scroll all the way to the bottom and you'll see a main axis for throttle, mixture, and prop. Microsoft was nice enough to include the ability to map those three axis levers individually to throttle 1, 2, and 3 for the people who can afford the larger, more expensive throttle quadrants. But if you're like me, this gets to be kind of tedious when switching back to the smaller aircraft with only one prop.
So...scroll down to the bottom and map your throttle lever to the master throttle axis and you'll be able to control the throttles of all the engines your plane may have to just one lever.

Yep its too bad they made the POV as one button, makes is less customizable. I had to customize my views so that my rudder trim now works as left/right/ahead view.
I´m swedish alright, I guess you are danish...? :-)

Hmm, I heard there's something called profiles, DOH :-D
Didn't know that it filled in my first and last name automatically tho.
Actually I was born in Denmark, but have lived in Sweden for 32 years, was only a baby when we moved here, hehe.
