Post subject: FA system doesn't detect my new X52 joystick... Reply with quote
I've been trying to get FA to detect my new X52 joystick, I used to have a very old Satiek joystick of X (I forgot which number) that used to work with FA about 8 or 9 years ago.

I know its different now, and FA is far outdated, but however, I am wondering if any of you know any of way I could get FA to detect my new USB Satiek X52 joystick?

FA doesnt detect joysticks unless you have calibrated them through the control panel...

Have you installed all the control software and installed a profile and calibrated it?

RTFM!!! Its right there in front of you...

Yes I have already done that, and I got it working perfectly for Strike Fighter Project one and Il-2 FB+ACE+PF simulator, and same thing goes for Orbit simulator and old game known as Battelfield 1942 where I would drive these vehicles...

But I have not done anything with profile yet, and Im going to look into it.

Wouldn't the X52 be too "new" for FA? If I had it installed I would try it with my Logitech Extreme 3D Pro but I think it would be the same result. I remember having problems even with my 1996 Sidewinder 3D Pro when I had it but those resulted from it being knocked out of the control panel (it was gameport not USB). I think FAF should have some sort of driver support for these new, advanced sticks but that isn't possible is it?

I use CH F-16 Flight Stick as my selection for my X-45 and it worked also for my X-52 which I got rid of (I hate that stick! Mad )

Just profile the #*&$ thing! Slap

FA doesnt have much stick compatibility, so you simply have to rely on external profiles. It's not that much trouble.
