Connect controller after P3D start

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I just had to break off a flight in P3D on Vatsim, because my rudder pedals somehow disconnected. After replugging them, I lost all the controls in P3d (Saitek yoke and throttle quadrant). I'm wondering if there is a simple option to let P3D recognize the controls after they are plugged in, while the sim is already running. At the moment I'm quite annoyed. I do not have much time for simming, so when I finally have the NGX setup and everything, and than have to break off the flight because my rudder pedals somehow unplugged is really irritating. Not enough time to start the flight over again....

 

I'm using FSUIPC for my controls. The controllers do show up in the Windows settings, but neither P3D nor FSUIPC recognize them.

Is there any way to work around this?

 

My system is Windows 8.1, Intel 4790K and Geforce 780.

 

Thanks in advance!

I have this too.

Apparently this is a windows 8.1 problem with P3D.

At least, in other games it doens't happen for me.

 

I found no way to fix it, not even FSUIPC would see my controller while it shows in windows are detected.

Had to land using keyboard/mouse :mellow:

Thanks for your reply.

Well, it seems I just have to live with it and double check that all my controls are connected before starting a flight in P3D.

 

BTW kudos to you for landing the plane using mouse and keyboard!

Another reason for a careful pre-flight  ;)
