  1. Thank you Sir! Look forward to trying this out!!
  2. Well, I never said it was a show stopper, but more of an inconvenience, having to switch joysticks to play this one game. Also, the fact that the X-56 worked just fine before I patched it to the latest release. Which was the main reason I brought it to their attention. The last update to the X-56 Drivers was over 3 years ago: X56 Space/Flight H.O.T.A.S. Software Installs drivers and software allowing you to program your X56 H.O.T.A.S. Why Update? Added deadzone adjustment for mini sticks (accessed through Game Controllers in Windows) Added to DirectOutput SDK, so game developers can now address the RGB LEDs Added optional Analytics 64bit Software Version: Last Update: 2018-09-24 OS: Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows 10 File Size: 31.17 MB
  3. Sorry, but not to sound quirky. I posted this originally in March via email threads with you. Then this post started in June and on June 7th, I provided our previous email conversation again. So I had already provided it twice.
  4. Yes, see attached. I've also worked with Nils "Ssnake" Hinrichsen Director under multiple threads. He was to go check with the Developers .. but never heard anything back 😕 " Nils Hinrichsen <Ssnake@esimgames.com> Sun, Mar 28, 8:13 AM to me Hello Paul, Saturday, March 27, 2021, you wrote: PH> I did try in Safe mode.. no dice. PH> I have a Logitech 3D Extreme Pro and it recognizes that, but once PH> I go back to the Saitek X56.. dead stick ;-/ Now, that's an important clue (aside from the obvious workaround). To me it suggests that Steel Beasts, "in principle" isn't broken with respect to its joystick support, as limited as its implementation may be. But the Saitek stick might deliver the signal in a form that Steel Beasts doesn't recognize. The most likely reason for that is a configuration in the Saitek driver. Unfortunately I'm not familiar with them, so I can't give you a direct clue where to look for. But the stick is programmable, so maybe there's a profile selected that isn't suitable for Steel Beasts, or the mini joysticks are interfering with the axis assignment (there seem to be a row of them on this model). I admit that I'm guessing as much as you do at this point, but my gut feeling tells me to look for trouble on the driver software side.

  5. I take it that this has dropped off the radar since no response as of June..lol. Not sure what has changed, but before the last patch in 4.1.. My X56 worked just fine. Since updating to 4.265 .. not even detected and i just have the joystick connected with the Throttle unplugged. Still not recognized in game. I hate to have to switch joysticks to my Saitek 3D Pro when I want to play 😕
  6. Hi Snnake, Actually, you and I have conversed in the recent past via email on this topic: I've tried just having the Stick and disconnecting the Throttle stick.. same issue. I unplug and plug in the 3D Pro.. works just fine 😕
  7. Yes, 100% positive. I use the X56 mostly for my DCS flight sim games, but it works fine with other games (Arma III, Enemy Engaged, Flight Sim 2020, etc.). SB will not detect any axis movements or buttons. So now i'm stumped.
  8. Hi Gibsonm, yes I tried that as well. It does show my controller as preferred device. Tried with just the stick and not the throttle as well, no change 😕
  9. Hi everyone, I am having an issue with getting the game to recognize my HOTAS (X56). I have a Logitech 3D Pro, and if I connect that, it works fine. However, my Saitek X56 is not recognized on the key binding. I sees the device, but none of the buttons will map in the controller setup up screen. The only other option I have not tried is to map all the keys with the Saitek Programming software. Any ideas you can throw my way to try.
