Throttle/Stick/Rudder Pedals etc. Not Responding - Fix Without Re-mapping or Re-installing

Recommended Posts

Hi there.

I found a way to solve this without having to re-install anything or re-map any keys.

I noticed a few people had this problem. It occurred after I had reinstalled windows 10.

I had my game on a second hard drive so I did not have to re-install it. However when I went to play the game, all my controllers were not recognized by the game.

I went into:

 

D:\IL-2 Sturmovik Great Battles\data\input

 

Inside the input folder is a file called "devices"

 

I opened that and saw that all my input devices were doubled, like this:

 

configId,guid,model|
0,%221a238430-e3ae-11e8-0000545345440680%22,Joystick%20-%20HOTAS%20Warthog|
1,%221a25f530-e3ae-11e8-0000545345440f80%22,Throttle%20-%20HOTAS%20Warthog|
2,%221a25f530-e3ae-11e8-0000545345441080%22,Logitech%20Extreme%203D|
3,%221a25f530-e3ae-11e8-0000545345441180%22,Mad%20Catz%20Pro%20Flight%20Combat%20Rudder%20Pedals|
4,%223ed907b0-f27b-11e8-0000545345440680%22,Joystick%20-%20HOTAS%20Warthog|
5,%223ed907b0-f27b-11e8-0000545345440f80%22,Throttle%20-%20HOTAS%20Warthog|
6,%223ed907b0-f27b-11e8-0000545345441080%22,Logitech%20Extreme%203D%20Pro%20USB|
7,%223ed907b0-f27b-11e8-0000545345441180%22,Mad%20Catz%20Pro%20Flight%20Combat%20Rudder%20Pedals
 
I remembered from when I was setting key bindings that my stick was device 0 and throttle was 1, so I deleted all the lines below my devices that were repeated, to get this:
 
configId,guid,model|
0,%221a238430-e3ae-11e8-0000545345440680%22,Joystick%20-%20HOTAS%20Warthog|
1,%221a25f530-e3ae-11e8-0000545345440f80%22,Throttle%20-%20HOTAS%20Warthog|
2,%221a25f530-e3ae-11e8-0000545345441080%22,Logitech%20Extreme%203D|
3,%221a25f530-e3ae-11e8-0000545345441180%22,Mad%20Catz%20Pro%20Flight%20Combat%20Rudder%20Pedals|
 
When I restarted the game I got a message I had never seen before. said something like, "New input devices detected, to use key bindings from an old device to use with the new device, select and proceed" I highlighted each one by one and clicked proceed and when the game started, all inputs were recognized and all bindings/mapping was not changed.
 
Hope this can help someone else. No re-mapping keys or re-installing anything.

Found your link to this thread regarding my issue. I checked the file and no double entries.  My controls only stop responding when I try to load the game with the thrustmaster target software running otherwise it works fine.   It worked without issue before the recent update.

You are trying to use a TARGET profile with the joystick and throttle combined?

 

That should be the only device. Also in joy.cpl that should be the only device (while TARGET profile is active).

I have never found the need for target software. So unless you need it, just run game without it.

It's useful if you know how to use it.

 

I use similar software, I can fire a flare and put the gun away again with a single press of a button.

That could be handy. Multiple actions in one key. This is possible without the software in some instances. You can also fire a flare without having to take out the flare gun or opening the canopy. Best part is there are infinite flares that way!

You can also do that with “cover me” and “patrol the area” single keybinds. At least I’m doing it and I think it works! 😜
