Could someone who ***actually knows***please explane to me why..when I change the pilots name to another name then go into the game my joystick settings no longer work....Then, if I change back to the original name, the joystick settings work again.

how exactly do I copy,cut,paste or whatever..into what or where to get the second name to work just like the first name..so I can switch back & forth between names without completely resetting each individule setting in the "input" area of the game.

I have the Saitek X-45 joystick.

Look in folder Users, for each Name there is a subfolder there.
Each folder holds it's own file settings.ini
That's where the stick settings are recorded.
Copy settings.ini from the folder of the first to the folder of the second name.
(For this reason I've given up using more names. I'm just Doe...)
