Thread: Microsoft sidewinder joystick wont work in msfs 2020

  1. Default Microsoft sidewinder joystick wont work in msfs 2020

    Bought the game for second time and it works. However, joystick shows up in MSFS 2020 but has a big question mark on the screen showing it recognizes it. Doesn't work. Windows recognized when plugged in and said ready to use. Anyway to get it to work or do I have to buy another joystick. If so any recommendations for a reasonably priced one. Thank You.

    Joystick: microsoft sidewinder precision pro. It's old but works on fsx and windows 8.1

    It works. Just manually set up your button and switch assignments.

    Thanks for your help. I cant figure out how to do that. I tried to configure in msfs controls menu. Is that where I need to be? Thanks soo much.

    I have one and it works fine. You just have read how to use the control setup UI. Go to the MSFS forum and do a search on how to do it.
