Hi all! Having trouble with my MSFFB losing FFB when I switch to desktop(for setting adjustments), then back to game. Have to restart to get the FFB back...pain in the arss if you ask me, especially when on a server. Is there a way to eliminate this problem...I've seen this posted before, but couldn't find. Plz help...Thnx in advance!

alt tabbing in this game doesnt work as well as it does in microsoft games (cfs), also it messes up your resolution and screen settings sometimes

You don't have to entirely quit the game, after finishing mission just go to main menu and back again - works for me at least.

No solution to online-servers I'm afraid http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

USE THAT X45 STICK AS A BUTTON BAY!

The Win key does the same. You have to "refly" then to get FFB back. I just wait for the moment when it's beeing fixed. Even the buggy Lomac doesn't have this problem...

What I hate about the Win key is that I sometimes hit it... this kicks me out of the game when I just want to switch to the gunsight view http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. ****ing key...

The next time I'm going to buy a keyb I'll try sticking a penny below that key first http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif. That was a nice trick to disable that key on my old MS Internet Keyboard. I don't want to disable it completely because I often use it for Windows hotkeys like Win + E for Explorer.

Yup just hit refly. I am also forced to keep my desktop at the same resolution as the game otherwise Alt Tab messes it up and it goes to 60 Hz. I have to Alt Tab because for some reason Team Speak sets the microphone volume to zero when I launch the game and I have to alt tab to get it back up.

Strange. I have a MSFFB stick and I Alt-tab all the time and the FF and everything keeps going. This might be a MEMORY problem, I used to have a lot of alt-tab difficulties until I went to 1gig.

There is one weird effect I get in that once I go back to FB my list of aircraft on the server key won`t work. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Yeah, i'm adding another 512 here soon, so hopefully that will help...still looses FFB even when I use the win key. Could be an OS issue as well...dunno, but im runnin XPhome. Thnx all again for your input!
