FSX: Steam Edition Support?

Post by fearlessfrog » Thu Dec 18, 2014 12:57 pm

Hi!

DoveTail games have repackaged and released Microsoft FSX on Steam. It's here (and on sale) now:

http://store.steampowered.com/app/314160/

I had no trouble with TrackIR5.2 and FSX (or my other sims) but I can't see to get it working with this Steam edition. Is this something you guys will add as a supported title, or something I can do in the interim to make it work. I can't fly without my TrackIR :)

Cheers!

Fearlessfrog,

Thank you for posting this, and looking into the solutions. I was working on this throughout the day and was pointed to a post you are familiar with.

I prefer the fix on page two of the discussion posted by Martin from Dovetail games. I would like to thank you personally for looking into this and putting together a guide to help us all out.

Regards,

You're welcome - and I'm glad we found a way, as I couldn't fly FSX without TrackIR!

I've updated to the Steam Guide to put the DTG recommended way up-front. Hopefully they can tweak their installer, and this will just be a release day blip.

Thanks,
FF

Thank you again! I can't fly without it anymore either. I'm glad that everyone was on this problem quickly and we were able to get it resolved.
