That's a good sign!

Are there any other USB axes despite the throttles that don't reach full max and full minimum?

Only the right toe brake. It will go from -763 to 930. Maybe the pot is going bad on that one. I just happened to notice it and I am sure it wasn't that bad when I had the toe brake issue. I can't check the PFC yoke right now because, for some reason, my computer is not recognizing the USB device as a PFC yoke. I'll have to deal with PFC later. I have problems stacked up in holding patterns.

I mean are there any other USB axes that can't reach their extremes with the help of an increased neutral zone.

Your toe brake problem at -763 can be fixed by a neutral zone of 250. These toe brakes should make no problems anymore; they have been fixed in PSX 10.0.9a.

I guess I'll have to apply this trick to all other sliders, including the speedbrake lever.

Yes. The flaps do not indicate 25 when they are in the 25 detent. I can't seem to get them to work correctly no matter what null setting I use. They will indicate 25 just prior to dropping down into the 25 detent (extending), but once they fall into the detent they indicate flaps 30. It's only a difference of about 3/16 of an inch but nothing I do with the null zone will get them to work correctly.

In the next PSX update (10.15) there will be a new concept for the neutral zone of sliders:

The neutral value won't set range steps anymore. It will only set neutral zones at the two outer extremes of a slider. And it will scale the signal so that there won't be a jump at the neutral zone border.

For example:

Say, the slider signal range is -955 to +966.
The worst extreme is the -955 end.
There are 45 units to go to -1000.
Round this up a little; set a neutral zone of 50.

Result:

When the signal is at -950, PSX gets -1000. And when it is at +950, PSX gets +1000.
Peaks beyond -950 or +950 will not exceed -1000 and +1000 in PSX.

In the worst case, when a slider signal provides a range of just -500 to +500, and 500 is set for neutral, the signal is scaled such that -500 will be -1000 in PSX (and +500 will be +1000). There will be no jumps as the scale factor is applied continuously, of course.


I'm pretty sure this will fix all problems.

(As usual, -1000/+1000 are always the reference limits for all sliders: throttles, reversers, speedbrake, flaps, toe brakes.)

I can patch it over to your 76 if you want.      :)
