Annoying problem with Saitek ProFlight Rudder Pedals when not flying

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Whenever I'm not flying and I'm playing certain games, the game will recognize the pedals as a controller. Some games that I have don't have an option to turn off controllers, so I'm stuck with leaving it on.

 

For most of my games, this isn't a problem. But for certain games like Sleeping Dogs, the game recognizes the pedals as a controller, and for some reason, the way the pedals are set makes the game think that I'm trying to control everything with the pedals. The game thinks I'm depressing the pedals, when in fact they're just standing on the default position. To stop the game from thinking this, I have to depress the pedals (Both of them) half-way, and then the game thinks I'm no longer pressing on them. 

 

Does anyone have any ideas how to stop this?

Thanks

I hate to be Capt. Obvious, here, but unplugging any controllers that you don't want a particular game to recognize should fix your problem.  The problem does not lie with your rudder pedals.  If there's no setting within the game to select/calibrate/etc. individual controllers then your best bet is to unplug whatever you're not using.

That does work, but.... I fly every day, and I play games every day. I'd have to unplug and replug every day. And it's not convenient because it's connected to the back of my computer, which is on a platform. So yeah.

Why not try a 1m usb extension cable so as you can disconnect in front of the PC  (thats what I do)... or you could buy a 2m cable and stay in the chair but heh  some exercise is beneficial

Well I need both front ports too, for my headset and for my external drive (both have short cables).

 

This is really annoying, though.

Think Rob ment an extension that you can plug into the back, and bring the cable to the front so you dont have to reach round the back of the PC to disconnect it.
