1946 crashes!
« on: March 28, 2019, 09:00:22 pm »
S!
Hello, Dogs!

I'm set up in Phoenix and most things work, but my 1946 doesn't see my rudders, stick, or throttle and crashes to black screen when I try to quit game.

I have to unplug/plug the monitor to get screen back.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Agile

Hi Agile,
Glad you all sorted.
It may be that your config file is corrupted.
Do the controllers work on other sims? If not the USB controller might be knackered.

If you want I can jump on TS early tonight and maybe help.

Cheers

Windows assigns device numbers to controllers.
In your HOTAS section for controls in 1946, you can see what device # the game assigns to each controller.
The device is also tied to the port where it is plugged in.
If you switch the device cables between the ports where they are plugged in, 1946 does not recognize the devices as the same device number any more, and since the game only supports 4 devices total, the devices cannot be recognized.
Everyone should label their device cables and draw a diagram of the ports on the back of their computers showing what is plugged into which port so they don't get the devices confused if/when they unplug stuff to do service or move their computer.
Hope this helps.

Have you tried a different video setting in the game's conf.ini since setting up the system in the new place?
The crashing to a black screen and only coming back after unplugging and plugging in the monitor is a new piece of the puzzle. Are you running the monitor (or is it a TV) from a digital or HDMI feed? Have you set up the TV (if that's what it is) to show it is being used with a PC signal?
Just trying to troubleshoot here. It's possible the problem lies within the monitor settings instead of the controllers, but once you get the new files set up, that should help pinpoint the problem. If the problem persists with the controllers, look at the monitor settings and conf.ini settings instead.
