I bought a used Saitek X52 Pro joystick. After configured it worked perfectly on FS2.
A few days later, I configured it to fly with Flight simulator (from Microsoft). Everything worked also correctly. However, the next day I flew back to FS2, I found an unexpected surprise: there is no way to fly correctly in this Sim. after configuring it for FSX. What continues, is exactly what happens:
A joystick that lets itself calibrate perfectly, that its axes respond linearly and progressively when they are slowly driven from the beginning to the end. Then it is configured in Controller setup in FS 2; it correctly accepts the assignment of functions to its three axes, and also to the control of acceleration (throttle).
Now the surprise comes:
1) .- When starting the movement slowly the stick on the axis "Y", this instead of responding to the displacement linearly as the stick slides, it passes instantaneously to the end of the stroke as soon as the movement of the joystick stick starts .
2) .- Exactly the same happens with the start of the displacement of the other two axes: "X" and "Z".
3) .- Not only that, but the three axes move simultaneously to the end, when starting the movement of any of the three axes.
4) .- The only assignment that works correctly, is the acceleration (throttle and is not affected by the movement of any of the other three axes of control.
The displacements seen in the configuration page of FS 2, when we configure and assign functions to the joystick, are seen in exactly the same way, by placing an airplane on the runway, and there we see the planes of control of the aircraft, they move from the beginning to the end of the tour instantly, as soon as we slowly start the joystick stick travel in any of its three axes.
I repeat: if in the calibration of the joystick, (page Controller Setup), we see that when starting very slowly, the displacement of any axis, on the screen we see the line of the axis moves synchronously with the stick of the joystick, how is it possible that after assigning a control function to one of the three axes, do not move in exactly the same way (linearly and progressively)?
This has happened to me with one of the best joysticks that many of you, know much better than me: the Saitek X52 Professional.
I have two other Joysticks, (one, Thrusmaster), which work correctly and have never presented any problems.
Once again, I need your experience and help
I find it hard to believe that in this forum, it has not occurred to someone to suggest something to get out of this situation.
One thing is obvious: there is some interference between FSX and FS2, because this has happened after configuring the Saitek X52 for FSX (which worked perfectly) and going back to FS2. When I went back to FS2, it did not work again, it does not even let itself be configured in FS2.
I have even admitted the possibility that there has been a defect in this Joystick, but it is extraordinarily unlikely that a day has passed for the next one.
That being the case, the anomaly is in the software. What is that anomaly? How to correct it?
