Controllers keep being dropped

  • It happens to me sometimes using an old Saitek joystick. If I change to another sim it is working. I restart FS 2 a couple of times and it comes back. Pulling the usb lead out does not help.

    With me it's mostly the opposite, although on some occasions I experienced this when starting Aerofly FS 2, most of the time what happens when I end a session in Aerofly FS 2 and then start one in FSX:SE ( both Steam platform ) is that I don't have controllers in FSX:SE and sometimes even have to reboot the system.

    Main Simulation Rig:

    Ryzen 5600x, 32GB RAM, Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti, 1 TB & 500 GB M.2 nvme drives, Win11.

    Lenovo TB310FU 9,5" Tablet for Navigraph and some available external FMCs or AVITABs

  • I brought up this hardware recognition problem in the bug list (see topic).

    i confirm that this problem is all present and has never been treated by ipacs support,
    neither solved by the developpers.

    What happens: every second or third time the sim is launched, hardware is not recognized.

  • I had this problem, and it is pai in the ******, especially when I am using VR. Of course with joystick dropping I am loosing keyboard as well. So I have to turn off the game and on again, the I have to be lucky enough to have my joy working (even if detected and recognised in game).

  • I had my joystick connected to an older USB hub which was faulty / didn't work well on USB 3.0 and that caused temporary loss in control for about 1 to 2 seconds. The mistake was a driver issue in the end, I also had problems with a freezing mouse when I connected it to the usb hub.
    Maybe try another USB port?
