I am tearing out what’s left of my hair over this and would appreciate some advice.
It often takes more than three attempts, sometimes including a reboot and/or much switching my TM HOTAS devices on and off, to get the joystick recognised once I’m in the cockpit. I load the profile into TARGET, that goes fine and in the sim’s control interface I load to right profiles into the Virtual Device and keyboard columns. The problem is that after most attempts, the joystick input is dead and I have to get out of the sim, stop the TARGET profile, and start the whole process again. Eventually it works.
I have disabled “Allow the Computer to Turn off This Device” in all Windows 10-connected USB devices. I know I have to do this after every update. As I said, I often disconnect and then reconnect all three TM devices before activating the TARGET profile, which creates the Virtual Device.
I could just make my own profile for the separate devices in the sim’s Control interface but I really like this user-made TARGET profile, some scripting aspects of which cannot be replicated within DCS.
Can anybody give me some tips and tricks that might help me out here? Many thanks.
