Controller & Mouse Functions Stop Working When....

Recommended Posts

Do not think the issue is the system or PMDG T777. Current BIOS and Drivers. Been noticing when parked at any gate out side view the controller becomes disabled the check inside of controller settings is un checked. In order to enable the controller have to place a check back in the controller settings for FSX. This does not happen with other PMDG aircraft or other complicated aircraft.

 

Started a long flight 14 hours + from LSFO to RJAA. after 7 hours into the flight started making adjustments to the weather radar with Active Sky Next enabled. After 15 minutes started making a final adjustment and lost the mouse and controller functions FSX is still running. Do not think the issue is with the T777.

 

Have read in the T777 manual not to adjust the controller thru FSX. Previous to installing the T777 made controller adjustments thru FSX and the Software for the controller. Where is the controller, key board and mouse functions stored inside of FSX? FSX root folder or APPDATA FSX config? Can the App be delete in order for FSX to write a new file? Then make proper adjustments to the controller, keyboard and mouse. Think this is the issue from what have read in the manual not 100 percent sure.

 

Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

 

Thank You and Have a Great Day

Please read that section in the Introduction again, its recommendations are very different. Hopefully, you are not using Win8 where USB power problems are well known.  If a setting in FSX is not sticking, or changing without input, then the problem cannot be any aircraft add-on. The most common suggestion to this type of inquiry is to make sure you run FSX as administrator.

Did not find the installation instructions different than the way have FSX installed. Have been reading back thru the manual. Did not need to make any changes to FSX. Followed a very strict guide concerning the OS installation and FSX. OS is  Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Have full administration with UAC disabled. The issue may be a driver conflict  or the controller will do further testing and narrow it down.  

 

Dan, Thank You and have a Great Day
