joystick buttons not being recognized

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

trying to assign button 5 but it doesn't register in the controls assignment panel...all other buttons are seen and button 5 works in other games.Also I have an X-55 which is a hotas...only half of the hotas is recognized(it has 2 parts therefor 2 usb connections) tried to assign key inputs to the rudder twist on the joystick via profile and that doesn't get recognized either.worked in 4.0.

What kind of a button is it?

Just a "press to signal" thing, or something analog, a switch, ...?

I just put the stick on another system with SB pro 4.0 and it sees joystick button 5 so the stick is good....gonna reinstall 4.0 on this system to see if its a driver issue or SB issue.

I had troubles with the drivers  windows 10 compatability and my X-55 and had to upgrade to an X-56.

These are Saitek sticks, right?

They were until Logitec bought them out.

I use the manufacturer's programming software (Saitek SD6 Profile Editor) with my X52. I'm not sure if they make a version for the X55 or X56 - mine doesn't list them. But if they do, I'd recommend using it. It gives you many more options in terms of assigning functions to the stick and throttle. For instance: I was able to set the throttle to control the speed of a vehicle. It took some doing but in the end, I was able to use it as a true HOTAS for SB.

problem is that SB doesn't recognize more than 1 controller...X-55 is two components( 2 usb connections) not one unlike the  X-52 which was all 1 unit ( 1 usb connection)

 

I managed to solve the rudder problem by switching from joystick to control handles and using the profile software. So I can steer using twist

Ok...so joystick doesn't recognize profiles but handles do...dunno why?..anyway it seems BOTH usb components work under this config.
