Losing joystick (P3D v2.0 Win 8.1) Will FSUIPC help?


Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

Apologies if this topic has been raised before, but many users (me included) are suffering random  joystick disconnects in Prepar3d v 2.0/ Win8 or 8.1. Lockheed Martin are aware of the problem and are working on a fix for 2.1 but this could take a while and for me the sim is unusable asis (disconnects on changing planes mid flight, going to a new airport, loading a flight etc).

 

A number of posters have reported that assigning joystick controls through FSUIPC solves the problem, but this doesn't work for everybody apparently.

 

Is there a definitive answer? I would happily register FPUIC if this would definitely solve the problem.

 

Help much appreciated

Sorry, no, there is no definitive answer. I don't know if it would help or not. All you can go by is the experience and reports of others. I wouldn't want you to waste your money on something you otherwise have no use for (though it does surprise me that you'd feel FSUIPC wasn't worthwhile for a multitude of other reasons).

 

Regards

Pete
