Joystick question

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a question about joystick assigned button layout in FSX. As I am living in a different country now, my main FSX computer is laptop and I don't carry my joystick with me. I am using Logitech Attack 3 but now I have to buy a new joystick which is Logitech Extreme 3D Pro. My question is I have assigned key to my other joystick so when I get the new joystick, can I still use the same button or do I need to assign again? If I have to assign, will I lost previously assigned button? Thanks

Hi!

It seems FS creates entries for every single joystick you connect to the computer. Your new joystick will generatew its own config section, so you may have to re-assign buttons (axes generally work right away) for the new one (Extreme 3D). Your old one should not disconfigure next time you plug it in. Once you configure the new one, it should all be automatic (no more reconfig) provided you plug them in to the same USB port every time...
