Two days ago I plugged in Airbus thrustmaster to play Microsoft flight simulator

Yesterday, I plugged in Logitech joystick and run EAW. I was surprised and found rare Problem I think no one faced.
In controls I cant' choose joystick and all control keys found they need to be assigned
My EAW.ini was ok
I am sure this bug was happened due to other joystick and I uninstalled the thrustmaster driver but still
I have the problem
All my eaw in my lap got the same problem even in different drivers
Need your kind help

In which version of EAW does this problem happen and what OS are you using?

Those are code group versions. Sorry, I'm not allowed to help you with that, best wait for one of it's creators. Good Luck!

I don't understand what do you mean by version. By the way you have sent
To me many EAW mods and patches
My EAW from pure CD and Installed to V1.2
This rare problem is very weird that eaw conflicts with joysticks

I mean there is a seperate group dealing with those addons. Yes that's pretty weird stuff with the sticks but not very rare. Windows will erase all stick entries when the hardware is unplugged, after all there is no longer any stick present.

This is a copy of another post that may be useful even though EAW1.2 and similar exes cannot use rudder pedals:

Setting your j/s as the preferred device (as in the last picture) may solve your problem. However, I do not run Windows 11 so I cannot be sure.

I've seen Windows change up the device IDs and USB order - and that confuses a lot of games. Especially going back and fourth with USB game controllers. Try to use the same USB port for each controller you have, and be sure the order of USB devices is plugged in in-sequence. One program I use for force USB ID and order is called DevJoy: https://github.com/briankendall/devreorder I have it set to load on startup globably for my Win10 machine. Took some config'ing as I have a lot of USB controllers that come and go depending on what sim I'm flying or driving, but well worth my sanity.
