Win10 Updates,,, again.
« on: March 02, 2019, 05:01:49 PM »
~S~ Yup, it did it again. Windows updated and blew my game control settings out of the water. nothing works. All my settings are gone. My Saitek throttle drivers trashed and nonfunctional.  :unhappy-059:
Im currently re-downloading the Saitek software and drivers. Lets hope this will fix it.

Thats wierd. I've had 10 for a year now and aside from one major update last April or so that reset some sound settings, its been totally painless for me. Some crashes in other games I used to get are gone with 10 too.  :thinking-008:

The BIG problem I having now is I cant get my stick nor throttle to zero. Nor will they max out. Its like they need to be calibrated, but,I cant get them to do that.
Atleast I hoping that its a Windows Update issue. Around the same time. My power went out,,, hard. I thought my frig was going to blow up from all the noises it made.
My servers and PC's APC went nuts. "FLASH POP FLASH POP FLASH FLASH BANG!!!" then I was in the dark for about two hours. The servers seem to be ok. I THOUGHT my PC was fine, but, soon
after that. MS pushed down another update which afterwords I decided to check everything out. THATS when I noticed my problems. I swear I feel like I live in a 3rd world country here.

S~

 Won't help now until you're settled again, but once you're back in order you can turn the update service off in the services section via the task manager.  Then when you're properly braced and in the mood for a skirmish,  at you leisure, enable the service and check for updates..maybe make a restore point just before  updating.  Then you'll at least feel like you've got some control over when the bad things are going to happen - aside from random power outages  and whatnot.. no UPS on that server rack?  :surprised-027:

 

At that awkward age where your brain has gone from " Probably shouldn't say that" to
"What the hell, let's see what happens"?  Me too.
