Recently I received the Logitech x52 Professional HOTAS as a Christmas present. However, when I got on the play X-Plane with the joystick, throttle, and MFD already connected, I realized that the joystick is not compatible with X-Plane. And I thought "Oh, that's fine, I'll just calibrate it and assign the keys myself" but then I saw this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7MftbseKyY), where it actually SHOWS the picture AND (I'm not sure if he assigned the buttons before the video) but the buttons were automatically assigned. Is this an issue? Is the Saitek and Logitech version different? What can I do?
In comparison to my screen...:
I'm not sure if you have sorted this out yet but here is my solution:
I am using Windows 10 Home Edition Version 1903.I went to my Device Manager in Windows and saw that in the Human Interface Devices that my X52 was recognised as "X52 Professional H.O.T.A.S."Next I went to the Xplane/Resouces/joystick configs folder and edited in Notepad the file called Saitek X52 Pro Flight Control System - Win.joy. I then edited the line (about 6 lines down) to read "Name: X52 Professional H.O.T.A.S.". Then ran Xplane 11 and in the joystick settings the pictures now appear.
