  1. nicoma, could you please link full article from TechNet. EDIT: disregard
  2. Turning off live tiles didnt make much sense anyway. We'll just have to wait.
  3. Well ofcourse its related to win8, didnt you read my post? Its how FSX communicates with directx and controller management. In win8 controller management is different but it doesnt mean its completely broken. FS9 and and lots of other games/sims work just fine. Its FSX and few others that are coded in the way that was suitable for previous OSs but are having problem with new controller managemen in win8.
  4. Thing is that how windows 8 handles controllers is different from win7. There are many cooperative layers for controllers and fsx is using controllers in foreground mode which will release controllers when focus is shifted.
  5. Have anyone tried windows 8.1 yet? Any improvements?
  6. Guess its just something that we cant fix by ourselves. MS needs to act and do it now.
  7. Hello Nico, I experience controller loss when FSX window loses focus. For example I bring up AS2012 to check metar, or ServInfo to check up on things. When I return to FSX then controller is gone. I can manage to get it back by going full screen and then back to window mode. I have noticed (maybe just blacebo effect), but losing controller and getting it back gets progressively worse as the flight time passes. Its also harder to get it back in FSX as flight time passes. Also There are no W8 drivers released for my MOBO, so I use ones from W7. BIOS should be latest but Ill check. Thanks, Raimo
  8. What have I done so far to resolve this: Adjust best performance of: Backround services Have unchecked all "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" boxes under HID and USB controllers. Most of them are blanked by the way and only few were ticked. USB Selective Suspending Setting: Disabled Anything else I could try?
  9. None of the above seems to work for me :( Weird thing is that it only happens on FSX. On FS9 I never have this problem.
  10. Oh my ... My mind is wandering so much at the moment. Thanks for pointing me at the right direction
  11. And from there I should go adjust for best appearance right?
  12. Wait, now where exactly can I change this performance/backround thingy?
