Joysticks were blocking as soon as prepar3D starts

Postby SimStar » Tue Sep 17, 2019 9:37 am

Hey guys, I have a very strange problem here. Dont know if its windows or prepar3D or maybe FSUIPC.

I have installed latest widows 10 version build 10.0.18362.
I have installed latest prepar3D version 4.5.
I have installed latest FSUIPC version 5.152.

Description:

Starting up windows and go to game controler settings (windows) to test all joysticks are working fine.
Now starting prepar3D and go again to game controler settings (windows) all joysticks are blocked.
Cant test joystick in game controler settings. Moving the joysticks nothing happens.
Going to FSUIPC configuration within prepar3D menu and moving the joysticks they are working fine.
Open prepar3D controls page and try to test joystick there, nothing happens again.
Closing prepar3D and go again to game controler settings (windows) to test joystick all joysticks are working again fine.


Does anybody know where problem could be located?

Thanks for your help

I had an issue like that a couple of days ago. I rebooted the computer, and everything worked again.

Hi SimStar,

Can you try changing the Control API from Raw Input to DirectInput? This can be done via Settings > Options > Controls > Other > Controls API.

Thanks.
