The joystick is working again
!!! I don't know what happened but it is now working.
I will try to explain what occurred prior to my noticing the joystick working again.
I read through the information that Norby
First I attached the joystick (xbox controller
) to another computer to rule out hardware issues. The joystick worked fine on that machine.
So I had a thought....I went back to the laptop where this issue started and, because I have several commanders
saved; each with different ship types, commander names and missions assigned to each, I reattached the joystick and opened the game, selected a different
commander from the list and started the game. The joystick worked fine with that commander.
So I closed and reopened Oolite, selected the commander that I originally had the issue with and the joystick was working again!
Although, none of the original joystick settings that I applied held. I had to go into the menu and reapply the 'stick settings. But it is working again.
I did not apply any of the suggestions from the information provided by Norby
because the joystick was working. Although, there is some great information there and I will keep it for future reference.
Thank you Norby, for your help.
And Cody, for catching the information I left out in my original post. (Oolite version)
With much gratitude.
