Hey all, not a fix for joystick users but while randomly smashing keys and buttons after getting shot down I discovered that if you hold the right or left mouse key while pressing the "A" or "D" key you can actually get your plane to roll. Again not a fix but at least you can use the roll to direct your plane into the ground instead of flying around aimless for minutes on end and hopefully get your joystick controls reset upon respawn  :facepalm:.

 

  You'll have to have the "A" and "D" keys still configured to in your control settings of course, maybe it's just my setup but can any other joystick users confirm this ?

The other option is to pay for premium account, you will still get the bug but at least you will still win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

6 battles tonight and every one I had this bug, usually after my first respawn and just before the squal line...of course and when it matters most!

 

I don't have premium account, but the one day I did, I still had the bug but I wont 8/10 battles regardless!

 

So any incentive for WG....does any one still know how to do Math???????????

We could start a go fund me account to get someone on the dev team a joystick.

At this point I dont think they care.

I had an odd variation of the problem today where my trigger button died instead of my joystick controls.  The trigger got stuck "on" at one point on the first sortie, causing guns to stay overheated and ineffective, and then on respawn the trigger was completely dead "off".  On the NEXT respawn joystick controls were dead.  Weirdness.

I was deadstick over and over again yesterday. A very, very bad day. I deleted the game this morning and have had zero problems after reloading it.  About 12 battles so far.

I use the button for 'sniper view' to do that ; when you go into sniper view you get control for a very short time, enough to direct the plane into the nearest obstacle ...

I have a premium account but sure don't win every time.....and I don't think they will fix this until the event is over....maybe they think that will fix it.

Me too.  Started slowly and gradually increased to every re-spawn.  I tried to switch to mouse in-flight.  Most of the time the mouse wasn't functioning for control either.  

 

Did you try clearing the cache before you reinstalled?

Of course and also check and repair tool.  No help there.

I too have a premium account, it sure does not guarantee victory!  I am using a Logitech 3D Pro Joystick and about every other match have the locked (or frozen) stick.  My only resolution is to do a quick control alt delete and restart computer, restart game and when I get to hanger it loads game up automatically and if game is still running I enter with a operational Control stick.  Hope this helps!

In over 12k battles pre 2.Ohcrap I managed over 50% as well, now I am lucky to maintain 45%.

Just meant to say that the one day I had premium, even with the bug when I restarted game and got back in, I still won 8/10 before I called it for the night.

So ya I have done the math.

 

I wonder how many these days even know what long division is, or pencil and paper...:coin:

I cleared the cache and the joystick locked up the first time games.  I reinstalled the game then flew the entire night without incident - with the joystick anyway :).

 

Thanks for the help.  Not a good fix but I am back in the game.

There are quicker ways ... you can quit the battle by going to hangar and hope next game the bug doesn't bite, it's completely random. You can also go to 'sniper view' (button 2 on my 3D Pro) push stick forward to dive & crash.

Of course both 'solutions' are bad for your score and bad for your team (1 man down) ... but hey, the bug is only more than 2 weeks old !!

And like I said in other threads, it looks as if not using Battle! button but always let it count down to start automatically, alleviates the problem a bit.

It appears that the problem is related to the in game chat system.  Be it actual chatting (typing), or being able to click on the map (ping or select start point).  If you can keep away from using any of those, you have a better chance not to get bugged out.

Wow. I didn't know about this.

You would think that there would be some mention of this somewhere on the forums.
