Trying to map HOTAS Warthog stick causes black screen

Recommended Posts

Just as in the title. Says everything. Usually I fly with the FFB2 instead and I never had problems configuring my controls. Now I wanted to try the WH instead cause I suspect my FFB2 + TIR to cause stutters (I have stutters since 2.5 OB, but I noticed it's completely fluid with no controllers and TIR plugged when playing back tracks), but as soon as I map controls to the stick and press OK, the screen blacks out completely. Background music keeps running. Just tried in the menu yet, I'll check if I can do this "in sim".


Edit: I could map it "in sim", but not having any FFB device plugged didn't kill the stutters which is a relief. This is a prominent issue in another flight sim engine that's been used for WWI and WWII sims and I've also seen it in 1.x already some years ago for a while, I had fears it came back...
