x-55 Rhino Vjoy/ujr WORKING SOLUTION

Post by hardcastle » Fri, 20. Jan 17, 17:34

Greetings

This post is for those of us who have multiple input devices such as the x-55. A current limitation of X3 is that it can only recognize a single device (like the x52 pro). Below is my confimation that Vjoy and UJR can be used to combine the x55 throttle and joystick into a virtual single device. The host sites where the applicaitons live have install and usage instructions so I won't repeat those here. Below are the configurations I've found that successfully give x55 functionality.

This solution is being developed on a windows 10 64bit i7 32gbRAM

Ive been working on various configurations for getting the Vjoy and Ujr working with the x-55 Rhino.

At present i have all axis buttons and throttle working.

The trick i found was not to enable all the options in the Vjoy configuration tool

as per the image below:

Then finally mapping the axis as follows

Then just go to the buttons tabs a map the buttons as required.


Vjoy lives here : http://vjoystick.sourceforge.net/joomla256.02/
UJR Lives here : http://evilc.com/joomla/articles/9-code ... k-remapper

One last thing, dont forget to add -ignorejoy 15 to the startup options; this will disable the continuous signal from the mode switch.

Happy flying, trading, galactic domination...what ever your creed :)

Best.

I fixed a few link and edit issues in the opening post.

This seems a great piece of advice that could benefit other X55 users. Would it be OK to include a link to this in an Egosoft FAQ if possible?

Added to the Egosoft FAQ under Technical Support -> Controllers: [FAQ] How can I use multiple control devices in X3TC/X3AP?.

For those using Thrustmaster products there is Target software, available from their products page.

The virtual joystick can only have 32 buttons mapped, due to a DX limitation.

@Terre
Is the configuration of this target software straight forward or is there anything to note when trying to configure it for multiple devices in X3TC/AP?

The game just sees the virtual device and should just map what ever type of switch the player selects, I've not tried the virtual joystick, which, in my case, is two Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS Joysticks, with any of the X games, maybe X4 will have a requirement for six degrees of freedom.

Thank you for the additional information. I added a short note and a link to the Thrustmaster T.A.R.G.E.T software website to the FAQ article.
