New Joystick causing new problems

Recommended Posts

I have now got my new Thrustmaster T 16000M joystick set up and working. (I installed the driver that came with it).

However, it has had some unforeseen and unwanted consequences.

Firstly, the Mouse scroll wheel didn't work anymore. I resolved that by enabling advanced mouse controls in the Other Controls box.

The other problem is that I now have a selection to choose from in the boxes where you set buttons and axes.

Whereas it used only to show my old Logitech 3d Pro as the only controller, it now shows: 0 -Mouse yoke, 1-Mouse look, 0- Mouse drag pan and 1 -T.16000M.

I can't see a way to set a default joystick.

How can I get it to show only the T.16000M? I tried unticking the Advanced mouse controls but then I can't scroll again, and it made no difference to the menu..

I am stumped.

I had 2 of those over the years and they always gave problems. ( The VelocityOne flightstick is much much better ) 

Have you tried to un-install all the thrustmaster drivers,  but at your own risk in the regedit registry? Also you could try connecting into different USB hubs and see if that helps.

Funny enough after I had them I went back to the Logitech 3D Pro ( Not that you really want to hear that) 

Hope you can get it sorted out, these problems drive us mad I know it.

Just to let you know, I have now resolved the problem, (almost).

To be sure, I uninstalled everything then reinstalled the TM driver, re booted and then plugged in the TM USB. Using a USB v2 port.

The extra joystick choices are still there but at least the Thrustmaster is now permanently recognised and working perfectly.

What was happening with the disconnect problem was in the Power options, where a setting hidden deep inside was shutting off power to the USB hub. (This was separate from the usual Device manager USB settings where you turn off the option to shut down a USB).

So, all good, which is just as well as the Logitech is completely out of stock at all local retailers.

That one is 6 times the price of a Logitech and 3 times the price of the TM. (Locally, that is).

Euro 104.99 here in Holland. T16000M Euro 63.99 and the Logitech Euro 60.00.....but of course you have postage on top of that.

Ian, how have you implemented the reverse thrust? Is it the button approach or some other method or do you not use it since you have a separate throttle add-on?

Just curious. I am considering replacing my X52Pro. T16000 may be a replacement.

No separate throttle. I use one of the buttons. The one I allocated to " decrease throttle quickly" or something like that. It has  15 buttons, just a question of remembering which is which, once allocated.

It is a very solid Joystick, and having got it working flawlessly, I am very pleased, even though it is quite pricey.
