That is frustrating. Have you tried testing your hat stick in windows Game Controllers. Type joy.cpl in the search box and hit enter. Then select your joystick from the list and press the Properties button. When I move my POV hat stick to the upper left, for example, I see a corresponding red marker on the POV hat stick graphic in that location.

Yes I do if I set it to fallback but it still doesn't work.

Sorry to hear that :(

Not a deal breaker and it seems to me there must be a way. I just haven't found it.

The fourteenth video in this series is now live on YouTube. In this video I focus on Quickstart Mission #4: Opportunity for the Axis?. This mission places you in a Bf109 attacking a squadron of B-17s with no "Little Friends" helping them out. Can you succeed - I know I can't?

I need some help with this one. Can anyone beat this mission? Can you give me some tips on how to improve my fighter skills?

At long last I'm back!!!! Sorry for the long delay, it's been over a month since I published my last video.

The fifteenth video in this series is now live on YouTube. This video is the second of six Fighter Schools, aimed at teaching you the basics of each fighter aircraft in the game. In this video I cover the P-47 Thunderbolt, affectionately known as the Mighty "Jug".

I feel I owe you a little explanation of the delay, which shouldn't happen again, in getting this video published.

It started off with me deciding to upgrade my PC which meant that I spent a lot of time doing research on the latest PC components, selecting those I wanted, buying, installing and testing them. I had to reinstall Windows and my many programs around five times before I finally got a stable system which took far too many days to do. At long last it all came together and I now have a much faster PC than I did before. This will hopefully mean that the issues I was getting of dropped frames and out of sync audio in my videos will be far less likely.

I then had a load of research on the P-47 to do as well as a lot of testing of this fighter in the game. I kept discovering issues and a few bugs in the game with the P-47 and also found that I was useless at landing it. While I finally managed to edit this video down from 1h 45m to 1h 17m, there were around 5 hours of other wasted footage due to errors and mistakes I kept making. As I only get an opportunity to record in peace and quiet an hour or two a day it took me nearly two weeks to finally get this video completed. I can now only hope that it meets your expectations and I very much hope that it is useful. Enjoy!!!

Holy carp, you're on subsim!

I picked up B-17 II cheap on Steam, because I loved the original one. Tried it out and couldn't really figure it out. Then I found your tutorials, and I've been slowly working through them. Thanks so much for this.
:salute:

Yep they've been very helpful to me. I'm still having fun being Tailgun Charlie although I'm starting to think the Me262 AI pilots are idiots.

Really glad you're enjoying the videos and that they're helpful.
