can anyone tell me how to get my Xbox 360 controller to work on my Microsoft flight simulator x?
the 360 controller is installed on my laptop but cannot find it in the controller settings in the actual game.
I have the 360 controller wired up via the USB wire.
the only option I can see in the game is mouse yoke or mouse look.
Certainly, getting the Xbox 360 controller to function with Microsoft Flight Simulator X (FSX) can sometimes be a bit tricky, but it's absolutely doable. Let me guide you through a comprehensive troubleshooting process.
Step 1: Confirm Windows Recognition
Step 2: Update Drivers
Step 3: FSX Settings
Step 4: Configuration within FSX
Step 5: Consider External Tools
Additionally, I'd like to mention that Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 and X-Plane 12 both offer robust native support for controllers, including the Xbox 360 controller. If you ever decide to transition to these platforms, it will likely be more straightforward.
However, if you still face challenges or have more specific questions regarding setup, do let us know. The beauty of flight simulation is the community that stands ready to help and share their knowledge.
