    Default How to get controller to work with FSX?

    Hey guys, so I bought a new laptop yesterday and immediately installed FSX on steam, but I can't get my old Xbox 360 type controller to work with it. I've tried updating drivers for it and resetting defaults for the controller which shows up on FSX and shows as being connected to my laptop, but it hasn't worked at all. Is there any way to enable the controller to work?

    Have you set axis and button assignments and sensitivities to this controller in FSX? I never liked the default FSX assignments.
    Best regards,
    Luis Hern√°ndez

    No. Buy a simple cheap joystick to use with fsx. For example the logitech 3D.

    Are you sure about that? I've used this controller on another laptop with FSX and it worked fine

    I've reset them to default but how do you go about setting them? I've also tried connecting it through steam but it hasn't helped at all

    Does the controller show up in the Windows Device Manager? Are you using a wired or wireless controller?

    Try starting Steam and change these settings. Make sure FSX is closed. In the top left of the Steam panel, go to Steam->Settings->Controller->General Controller Settings. Make a note of the current settings for future reference then deselect everything and close out. Restart FSX and see if your controller is detected.

    I've tried changing settings on steam and identifying the controller and so on but it doesn't work, the controller won't even be identified, it just shows up as unregistered

    It's a wired controller and yep it shows up but it doesn't make a difference in the game except I can move the joystick on the controller within the cockpit and certain views etc

    Given the situation as mentioned above, is there any other way to solve this issue?
