    Joystick and Throttle nolonger detectabl by most games


    I have a Saitek X-55 Rhino HOTAS Joystick and Throttle which used to work on my system. Now however, the vast majority of my games do not detect either device at all when they are plugged in. I have the correct and updated drivers for the joysticks.


    Under windows, ALL trouble shooting steps result in no problems. According to windows both the joystick and throttle are functioning correctly, windows can see both, I can bring up their settings, properties, and verify the functionality of all button and axes of control.


    However, most of my games can no-longer see the controllers, it is as if they do not exist at all. Games, that used to be able to see both. If it was just a single game, I would suspect a bug in the specific game, but since its multiple unrelated games, from multiple developers all with the exact same issue. It has to be something else.


    There have been several updates to windows between the time when the games could detect the joystick and throttle, and when I noticed they were nolonger being detected by the majority of my games.


    Running Windows 10 Pro, 64bit, Version 1709 Build 16299.547

    AMD FX 8350 Eight-Core Processor, 16gb RAM

    Throttle moving fast back and forth when joystick throttle is idle


    Hi,

    I have this Logitech Extreme 3D Pro joystick that I use for flight simulators and that won't stay at the throttle setting I set.

    In flight the problem is not all that big except when the throttle is set close to afterburner (since then the afterburner may kick in and out all the time), but when on idle this is a major issue since the engine is given power all the time...

    In this picture you can see the approximate throttle position and the area where it will wander inside when at idle... Sometimes it is stationary for a few secs, other times it moves fast several times a sec.

    I've tried the following:

    Use a different computer
    Disconnect and connect the joystick USB
    Calibrating using devices settings in Windows 10
    Reinstalled the Extreme 3D Pro joystick driver

    No attempt seems to fix the problem, so I was wondering if you had any suggestions?

    Joystick suggestions.

    Hi guys, I am looking for a new joystick but not sure which to go for, since I love this place I figured suggestions wouldn't go amiss here.

    Problems are, I need a left handed joystick, or something which fits very comfy in the left hand and has access to the buttons, throttle control with seperate throttle if possible so I can move the throttle away and pedals (for yaw) but I've not seen many joystick with these. money isn't much of an issue but the cheaper the better. Cheers.
