About every 3 battles my controls disconnect and usually stay disconnected. It is so bad I do a preflight before every battle to see if my joystick is working by going to settings to check if I have any signal input/output.
I have checked the drivers for the joystick and everything is up-to-date and working.
In battle sometimes unplugging and plugging them in fixes it, most of the time it doesn't.
Sometimes going to my device manager and clicking on the joystick's file works, but mostly it doesn't.
Same goes for hitting escape and trying the settings.
The only fix that routinely works is exiting the game and re-starting it. (I tried just disconnecting from the server, but it doesn't work.) It is pretty impractical to have to constantly quit and start the game every three battles or so, so if anybody has any ideas, I am curious to hear them.
