XBox1 controller on PC

Recommended Posts

The Sim doesn't seem to recognize my USB XBox1 controller but the controller works fine in other games.

 

Thoughts please?

SB uses the primary game controller (only)...so maybe that is the issue?

Okay so I will try unplugging my x65 controller and see if SB then sees the XB1 controller.

What version of windows do you use?

As what device does the XBox controller show up under windows?

Do you have any other controllers/Joysticks connected?

Windows 10 Pro

MS xbox controller

When I disconnect other controller, still no go

 

Does anyone here use such a controller successfully with this sim?

I don't think it's the controller per se, but the question is which one is registered under Windows as the "preferred device".

For Windows 10: Hit the Windows key once, type in "Gamecontr" to start the Gamecontroller app. There you'll see the list of devices registered as a game controller (e.g. in my case, it's ALSO listing the mouse, which may be counterintuitive). Click the button "advanced properties..." or whatever it's called in English Windows versions (mine is German, sorry), then select the joystick that you want to use with SB Pro.

 

If you don't want to use a gamecontroller at all: In Steel Beasts you can open the "Controls" dialog from the main menu (or hit Alt+C at pretty much any time). In the upper left corner there are radio buttons to select either Joystick, or Control Handle input; below them is a box to "Disable Joystick input".
