Buttons stopped working


Recommended Posts

Strangest thing happened before and not sure what I did. All my switches stopped working in the sim. They all work as normal in the options menu and in Windows game controllers and Helios but when I launch a mission nothing moves!!! Any ideas? Tnanks

This is a silly suggestion but it's happened to me =\


Make sure you didn't Alt-Tab by accident. I have two monitors, so if I click outside the window of DCS, my buttons no longer work in the sim until I click back inside the window.

I have the same issue with the letter "T" .


I used to use "T" for takeoff trim , suddenly it stopped working , so I went into the options and took a look ..... "T" was still programed for takeoff trim , but wont work anymore . Did a reinstall , but "T" wont work for TOT anymore ?

yea, I believe I've been experience this same issue for a month or so now. I start a free-flight or really anything and i can use my joystick and keyboard, but no interaction w/ the mouse. My only solution so far is [Alt. + Tab] out of the game and then re-open it up.

This only happened to me when I had "Disable Aero Interface" ticked; untick that and the mouse doesn't lose focus.
