I just today had installed E again (on Steam) and wanted to play the game using the T16000M I used before multiple times. Where normally the game instantly recognises the hotas, now it didn't. Not even a sign of it in the controls options. Everything relevant is up to date and in Windows the peripherals are recognised, customisable and testable. I already put up a ticket, but maybe I can get the answer here quicker to why the game doesn't recognise my hotas.
