Crash
Hello

I didn't find any answer in the FAQ, so to sum up my problem:
I can't play with my joystick. When I launch a mission, a campaign, a training, or even a free flight, it does not work. The game shows the debrieffing, as if my flight was over.
But is works perfectly when my joystick is not connected to my computer, but flying with arrows is not that great ^^

Do someone have an idea abou how to fix it ?

Thanks in advance, :)

Which make/model of stick is it? Plus OS info (i.e. Win7 x64 etc?).
MisterVince Feb 6 @ 12:12pm 
My stick is a Saitek Cyborg Evo Force, and my OS is Windows 8

Does it help to disable force feedback in the options? Plus a similar issue here that was resolved by reseting:

Sorry I don't have a lot of free time, I will test it as soon as possible, and then I will write here if it works or not.

Thank you very much for your help !

I will test for you since I am having the EXACT same issue with the EXACT same stick/OS

at the end of that link it walks through a registry deletion... THAT WORKS! leave FFB enabled and just delete that registry and the game launches fine ::VERFIED::

It says:
"Try this when logged in to account, where it it crashes:

With regedit, browse to key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER
System
CurrentControlSet
Control
Me​diaProperties
PrivateProperties
Joystick
OEM

and delete all keys starting ​"VID_06A3​". Of course you can backup (export) these keys before you delete them... "

I don't understand what "redegit" means/is (I am not English), and which account I have to log to (Steam, or ED account, or an ingame account ?) I tried to create an ED account but I can't because the website think I am a spammer.C

Wherever I look in my Programm files, in the DCS datas, I don't find any "HKEY_CURRENT_USER
System
CurrentControlSet
Control
Me​diaProperties
PrivateProperties
Joystick
OEM"

So I think there is something in the "with regedit, browse to key" that I don't understand.

Hi MisterVince,

'regedit' is a program that comes with Windows to change your windows configuration. Here's a guide on how to use it:

http://www.wikihow.com/Use-Regedit

Plus a video guide:

So from the guide, step 4 would be 'navigating' (sort of like folders) and then deleting those keys starting with VID_06A3. Make sure you follow the step 1 of backing things up first, just in-case.
