Can anyone help me with this problem please?


I switched the PC on yesterday to be greeted with a message stating that Steam was updating... this in itself seemed a normal thing to happen but when I started the game I found that my joystick was no longer working although the mouse was. The stick was ticked to be used in the relevant box and the mouse was not. Although I am not familiar with the inner complexities of this game I also checked all other settings that I felt were relevant to using the joystick.... all to no avail.


As far as I can tell I should have a working joystick but I haven't.... does anyone have any ideas or suggestions please and could they be in very simple terms for a nugget to understand?


Many thanks in anticipation.

Have you tried to remap the joystick to the pitch and roll axis?

sorry, need more information to diagnose problem.


Enjoyed reading of your predicament. Your writing has style. Brandy? Have a crumpet. With the Marmalade, it's very good.


Try unplugging the old stick and then plugging it back in.

Win X should tell you if it has loaded the drivers. or not...


Try a different USB socket.


What is your stick?


Then find your sticks diagnostic software and see it it's tiny little silicon heart is still beating.

I have a Logitech 3d pro and I can test it in the "devices and printers" part of the rather annoying windows 7 gadgets dept of the O.S.  ( it's all balderdash...)


More details would be nice. Other chaps here like details too. some are real sticklers...

It is in the manual. Check out the section named "OPTIONS, SETTINGS, AND AIRCRAFT CUSTOMIZATIONS" and using the controls tab starts at the end of page 23.

Kiaora Mate,



First, your controller must be plugged in BEFORE you launch RoF. This might fix the problem.


Also, whats happened to me before is I had more then one controller plugged in during launch up of RoF. The problem with that was that the game saw 2 controllers and named them controller 1 and controller 2.

If your controller is seen as controller 2 but the settings are looking for controller 1 it wont work.


Sorry, None of this really made sense.
