Joystick disconnect fsx se

Recommended Posts

Hi Simmers

When my default flight loads it does so with the the joystick disconnected. Going in to controls I see the 'enable controller box" is unticked. Once I tick it everything is OK again but I need to do this every time a fire up the sim.

It only started yesterday and its win 7 system.

Anybody now why this sudden development?

Can't think why it would suddenly start, but most times when settings don't "stick" after closing the program it's to do with administrative rights. Make sure that when you start FSX you use the "Run as administrator" option.

If you find out how this is happening, please tell me, because I have the opposite problem:

I use FSUIPC to assign my devices, sometimes just a joystick, sometimes yoke/quadrant/rudder/trimwheel, but if I start FSX with no controllers connected, it enables the checkbox.

believe it or not you just solved my problem . When you mentioned FSUIPC it suddenly popped into my head that I use a launcher called sim starter that has a controls section. Had I look in there and of course that was switched to the off postion so I turned it back on and problem solved

However I also use FSUIPC, but I still check the controls box in fsx but just remove all the control axis in fsx as well so no conflict.
