X55 Joystick Not Supported

Recommended Posts

bojackh

Running Windows 10 with a Saitek X55, which works well in other games (DCS World, Arma 3, Star Citizen etc etc).

Neither buttons nor axes work regardless of what i set as my "preferred device" in game controllers.

There have been similar posts going back to 2010. Any chance of this being resolved or is this a lost cause?

Edit: Oops, this was supposed to go into Community Support (Windows).

I had problems with x55 and Windows 7.

I eventually got it working after some tricks. If i remember correctly i switched prferred device and managed to detect the controllers one by one.

Sadly it's not working for me :/

I've also tried running it in Windows XP and Windows 7 compatibility mode but have had no success.

Did you install the Saitek software for the stick?

I have a solution.

I've used a program called JoyID and moved the stick and throttle around to positions 2 and 3.

And in the second post I found an interesting comment (from a developer of the Team Fusion mod for IL2 Cliffs of Dover) which may well explain why I've been having issues:

This tool has an effect only with games using the (old, deprecated) Win32_API for joysticks. Newer games (starting at least with IL-2 1946) probably use the DirectInput API which unfortunately ignores these IDs completely.
