• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

SimConnect_MapInputEventToClientEvent() - SDK description error.

In the SimConnect SDK for SimConnect_MapInputEventToClientEvent(), the following is stated:

"If joystick axis, rotation or slider events are requested, then an event is transmitted for these six times per second whether the joystick is actually moved or not, unless the value for these is zero, in which case events are not transmitted until the joystick is moved from this position."

This appears to be incorrect. I get no notifications once the stick has stopped moving, regardless of what position it is held in, (not just zero position.)

It would be good if it worked as described because when an aircraft is loaded, the gauges for throttle, mixtures, etc. do not have any awareness of current axis positions until it is moved so cannot be set to the current position of the axes upon started and may confuse the user.

i.e. User's throttle may be at max, but unscreen representation will show zero. So when engine is started, it runs off down the runway of its own accord.
