FSUIPC4: Joysticks not detected on startup


Recommended Posts

I have an issue that has got me beat. When I load P3D V3 the joysticks that I have assigned and calibrated within FSUIPC 4.976 (I think, Jan 21 version anyhow) do not become "active". My work around is to go into FSUIPC, click on Axis Assignment, click on Joystick Calibration, click on Axis Assignment again and then exit out of FSUIPC and everything is working. When I first go into Axis Assignment, there is no input/output reading until I then click on Joystick Calibration and then return to Axis Assignment. My setup has worked fine previously but not any longer.

I have all axis assignments set to direct FSUIPC Calibration, controllers are off in P3D and there are no assignments set in P3D itself.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have tried everything that I can think of.

Regards

Glenn

It sounds like you have Windows power management enabled on the relevant USB sockets. To fix that run Device Manager (enter that in the start/run box in the task bar), then look at each of the "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" Properties for those with Power Management tabs and uncheck the option "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".
