CH Flight Sim Yoke USB is detected by the system & is properly calibrated. All axis & buttons function in other games including FSX. In FS2020 the Flight Sim Yoke USB is detected but inputs are not working for actual game play. When I hit the “Sensitivity” button in-game, the axis inputs all appear to function (see attached). However, when in the controls mapping dialog, the inputs are properly mapped but no motion of the yoke or throttles is detected. During gameplay, no control surfaces move & throttle, prop & mixture actions do not function.
When I attempt to manually select the known/correct axis for flight control surfaces I get an error that says “Warning: selected axis is not recommended for this action.” (see attached)
When I validate the choice, despite the warning, there is no change & the axis inputs do not function. Only when I go back to the “sensitivity” dialog, do the inputs appear to work, never in the control mapping dialog & never for actual game play.
In this example I’m attempting to configure the “Aileron Axis”, but the outcome is the same for which ever axis I try to configure.
By default, in the controller mapping dialog, the Aileron Axis is defined as “Joystick L-Axis X” & as mentioned I get no input. When I move the yoke, the slider indicator in the control mapping table remains centered and does not move (again, analog motion is only ever detected in the “sensitivity” dialog) (see attachments).
If I select “Aileron Axis” & choose the option to detect an input by clicking in the “search” field. Then I move the yoke handle to the left and the game detects that action as “Joystick L-Axis X-”. When I validate the choice, the analog slider is gone and movement of the analog yoke axis is detected as a button press, on or off only, not as analog input. (see attached)
In FSX, & X-Plane, the CH Flight Sim Yoke works perfectly. The Windows 10 Joystick calibration utility (joy.cpl) detects and calibrates successfully every time. I also tried using the CH Products calibration utility and that also works perfectly. This is definitely a software issue with FS2020.
Again, analog motion is only ever detected in the “Sensitivity” Dialog & nowhere else. The same is true for all analog axis on the CH Flight Sim Yoke.
For good measure I tested with a Saitek Pacific AV8R Joystick & analog axis do function correctly in FS2020 with that device.
I made a video of all this to demonstrate, but apparently “new users cant upload attachments” (FML)
I would very much prefer to use the Flight Sim Yoke, since it very clearly works everywhere else.
Please advise & Thanks!
