I just updated Xplane 9 and haven't used the program in several years. I can't get it to detect either of my joysticks. One of them is an old Microsoft precision pro and the other is a Logitec Wingman Extreme. Both of them are very old but used to work. Do these things eventually become incompatible as newer iterations of Xplane are created? Thank you,

Hi Tim,

the question is, does your operating system recognize these joysticks? Check in your windows control panel (devices), if they are recognized and work.

X-Plane does not care about the type or manufacture of your joystick, it´s just about wether a valid "axis" signal is provided by the operating system.

If all else fails, get X-Plane 10, it´s on sale right now and soooo much better than X-Plane 9.

Good luck, Jan
