I am trying to use my Saitek X52 joystick set with world of warplanes, but the game will not recognize any controls that are proportional. ex. sliders, joystick x,y,and z axis, and throttle.  Has any one found the problem.  I have already tried reinstaling the game and restart my computer, they didn't work. please help

do you have the latest drivers?
and you can do some adjusting in the options and fine turn it with the slider

First, does Windows or what ever OS your using recognized the joystick??  Like if you go to the Controller setup (in Windows) and check to see if it reads the X, Y, Z axis.

I'm running Win 7 with my X52 and I've had no issues.

Same. I just plugged my X52 in and it worked. Well, it recognized the pitch, roll and yaw inputs, but I had to map the throttle.

Up until 3 patches ago, I had this problem a lot. Windows would suddenly lose track of my joystick as a device. I would be forced to unplug it, and plug it back in again. Interesting that I have used this joystick for years, without issue, in a LOT of games. Windows brain farts only started with WoWP installation. Submitted a ticket, which WP rejected as being a software issue. But, after a few upgrade patches, the problem suddenly disappeared, so draw you own conclusions...
EDIT: Spoke too soon. Just went in to play for the first time, after this most recent patch, and guess what was missing from devices, in my control panel?

very true in fact as I remember on the 3d pro you had to revers the setting by checking  that option for it to work right.

Having same problem with the saitek x52 as OP. I have two computers both playing WoWp, both have the same saitek x52, and the throttles wont map correctly (Axis 2). When i use the axis to map it, the game detects axis 2, but it will not allow the throttles to manipulate the throttle control in game or in the adjustment window. same for both computers. OS recongnizes joystick in control panel, other flying games utilize the throttels perfectly. Just not this game. Any ideas?

Haven't been able to remap the throttle as it keeps reverting back to the thumb slider.

Btw, roll seems to get really wonky at extreme pitch, mainly when I'm pulling back.  Sensitivity goes up at the top and bottom edge of the joysticks' range of motion is is circular, not square.
