I decided to fire up RoF today after a long absence, however my new X52 Pro joystick is not being recognised.

 

When I go into "response" the throttle axis is there, however none of the joystick ones are.

 

It all works just fine in my other flight sims, so does anybody have any suggestions as to how to overcome this issue?

 

Thanks.

This could be it maybe? Check Options -> General -> Control mode and make sure you have joystick, not mouse, enabled.

So, when you say "none of the joysticks are ther", you mean that when configuring left aileron, for instance, if you move the joystick it is not detected. Is that it? Weird.

Yes, that's exactly it - the throttle axis is recognised, however roll / yaw / pitch are not.

Do you have it connected all the time since you power on and start up the game? Some people suggest that.

Others solved it by installing the latest (beta in 2016) drivers: https://steamcommuni...92224232598871/

 

I believe the most updated drivers are here: https://support.logi...ight-H-O-T-A-S-

Uh... why do you mention the Response menu, when it should be the Controls menu? In the Responses menu you calibrate if your axis works linearly or follows another pattern. Sorry if this seems basic, I have no idea how much your remember of ROF.
