4.023 joystick failure
« on: October 14, 2018, 06:47:33 AM »
Installed 4.023 today after uninstalling (using Windows 10 Add/Remove) previous version. Now I'm unable to use or map joystick buttons. I start a scenario and I'm in the TC seat, looking strait down and spinning rapidly in a circle.

So frustrating...

I feel your pain. Maybe the TC forgot to take his morning meds.

After the Dogs of War are let slip, let us smoke the Pipes Of Peace.

beef i had that its a simple fix

you have to go to

Device and printers- right click on you controller- controller settings then you will see (select a device to work with older programs then you selected whats required) and it will have an OK next to it

further on that one what happens is the throttle or your rudder pedals default as an input device and thats why you have to go via the above information.
for me it was my throttle as SB Pro is seen as an older software via win 10

Like Wilso said. It is an axis input from a controller.  :gamer

I have Windows 10 Home

Edit: Here is what I did do...Settings > Devices > under "related settings" on the right side of window clicked on "Devices and printers" > right clicked my joystick and then clicked the "Advanced" button and selected the joystick as the "select the device you want to use with older programs." then clicked "OK", and then "OK" again.

Open up SB Pro 4.023 and select controls and, for example, click on LASE then "Select hot key" flashes in read. I have to press the left control key to make the flashing red letters go away. Selecting the joystick button I want to use for lasing does nothing, red letters keep flashing.

I have dozens of games for which the joystick (stick, throttle, and pedals) work perfectly well with or do not interfere with--EXCEPT SteelBeasts Pro. I don't dare post on their forum as I'm sure they'll tell me it is my fault and not their antiquated discombobulated 1980s software.

Game is deleted from my system. Can't be bothered with fitting a square peg into a round hole...

I'm not able to that. I have Windows 10 Home and there is no "Device and Printers" and no ability to right-click the controller.
You can access Devices and Printers by going to the Start menu and looking under the Windows System folder for the Control Panel.
I ride inside Steel Beasts.
