Two joysticks, throttle not working...

Recommended Posts

I got a new computer, installed Windows 8 Pro x64, updated it, installed latest drivers from AMD and I was having lots of problems. First, I found that FSX was crashing because of the new 13.9 AMD drivers so I installed the old 13.5 and it doesn't crash anymore. That fixed all crash problems.

 

The other problem is the joystick throttle wasn't working...

In the USB Game Controllers panel, everything moves, every joystick button work except the Slider, which is the axis used by the throttle in FSX. I tried it with another joystick and the slider still doesn't move. Then I tried it in another PC which also has a freshly installed Windows 8 and again, no slider.

 

Could this be a new windows update that messed up old joysticks? Is anyone having this issue? It was working really well before and now I installed windows again and it isn't.

 

When I calibrate the joystick, the Slider moves!! But after the calibration it doesn't move anymore...

 

Joysticks:

Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback II

Thrustmaster Top Gun II

The joystick problems in this forums are not the problems I have. In my case, the joystick doesn't disconnect. Only the throttle isn't working.
