[RESOLVED] The joystick no longer works

Postby bravodeltafr » Mon Apr 22, 2019 2:50 pm

Hello,

With my almost new P3D, I have a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro joystick, and its hat switch can look in all directions.
I then installed A2A Cessna 172. I started my tests to know it, and from the cockpit or outside view, the hat switch worked without problems.

When opening P3D yesterday, the hat switch only allows me to look a little up and forward, not down, not right or left, while it is well set as "View (pan)". The control of its setting in the system shows that this hat switch works normally in all directions.
I tested with a native plane (the Maulé), same problem.
I tested with 2 other joysticks (another Logitech Extreme, and Hotas), nothing to do!
I uninstalled the Logitech in the system devices, turned off the computer, and then reinstalled the Logitech.
By going back to P3D, no better.

What do you recommend ?
Put everything in the trash directly?
Uninstall and re-install the C172?
Uninstall and re-install P3D?

Thanks for your advices !

I found the issue and tell you how to resolve it.
In Controls / Other / Input method, put Directinput and not Raw Input.
Have a niece day !
