View Full Version : IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 Problem !

02-28-2011, 07:36 PM
Hi, I recently bought Sturmovik 1946 off steam a couple weeks ago. I have my joystick set up and use the trigger for 1+2 Guns but just yesterday I started up this game and now I have to press the trigger VERY hard to shoot and the guns don't shoot and when they do they "stutter". Can anyone PLEASE help me !

If you go into the Game Controllers->Properties screen for your joystick device in Control Panel, do you also see this behaviour? If so, it's probably your joystick rather than the game.

I checked it and it seems to be working properly and the trigger itself seems to be the exact same way it used to be working...weird

Hmmm...maybe worth investigating the soldering in the joystick if it happens again, but if it's working now I'd say leave it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

EDIT: by the time I posted, you guys got past the stick switch?

See how the trigger works by re-assigning it in the IL2 Controls page.

No i meant it still wasn't working after after all that. and there seems to be nothing wrong with the actual button and i reassigned it and still nothing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Windows sees it and IL2 does not, but just the trigger?

It could be your stick software, do you have it assigning the trigger to a key or anything?

If you have other controllers, IL2 only sees so many but then it wouldn't see your stick at all.

Which joystick?

how do you get it to use 1 and 2 guns together? and it could be your sound card drivers making it seem like its the guns but its the sound i had exactly the same thing and it went away when i took my soundblaster out and used a usb headset,even the incockpit sound etc is correct now when it was never before make sure you have at least 16 bit sound in settings

Assign a key to Weapon 1+2 in the controls section and it will fire both when pressed.
