Win 8, I've had a gut full; Win 10 anyone?

Recommended Posts

I've had a gutful of Windows 8. Twice tonight I was on finals and both times I lost the yoke on finals. Yes, I have the yoke configured in FSUIPC with the controls turned off in FSX.

 

I don't want to go back to Windows 7. Can anyone recommend Windows 10? I have heard that you do not suffer the dreaded joystick disconnect with it.

 

Also, does anyone know if you can just keep updating it until the final build?

 

Thanks

 

John

Win 10 has no problem with Joysticks for me. I'm planning a complete reinstall based on windows 10 preview builds as I read somewhere that you can update it to the final release version.

If the EnhancedPowerManagementEnabled registry setting doesn't preexist in the registry for your device, then this workaround is not applicable to you. You probably have some other issue.

Most USB hubs do not have this setting in the registry. If one has a hub with this setting it's worth a try.

I installed windows 10 over a brand new MSI gaming laptop with windows  8.1 already installed last January and its under gone 4 windows  updates mine is version  10.0.10061 I believe is 10.0.10074 and is already trying to autoupdate. As i work on remote Barrow island the intenet is a little slow so i expect it to be uploaded any day. this is an auto process .

 

 I have had no yokedisconnections whatsoever. Took a gamble as i got sick of disconnections. so far the gamble has payed off.

 

I Have pmdg 777 & 737 ngx on FSX:SE. its been interesting as Steam has been updating and windows as well only down side is after each windows update i have to reenter the  reactivate serial number. 

 

I can get 14 hour flights on qantas virtual airlines and frame rates are 24 to 40 FPS.  

 

I have mentioned this before. :rolleyes:

I have been using Win10 since the first Technical Preview, upgrading on each successive build as it is released.  FSX, FSX-SE, and P3D 2.5 all run just fine.  Stable with zero issues, and NO joystick disconnects!

 

As with any "preview" software there's always a risk, so go into this with your eyes wide open.  I don't believe you'll be disappointed, though... Win10 really is quite good.

with windows 10 with each windows update you dont need to reinstall drivers for graphics cards. As Doug said there is always risk with preview software. Its stable in the fact the pillars of the operating system work over P3D, FSX :Se, FSX with no yoke disconnects thats a plus.

 

theres a lot of mention outside the sim community that they like the new windows  interface or dont like the new windows interface etc etc.  which doesnt really matter as long as your on final and suddenly  you dont loose yokeand or rudder/throttle function which WAS a pain......
