Windows 10 clearly supports and can see the VKB-Sim Gladiator Joystick with no issue.

 

World of Warplanes somethings identify some of the joystick buttons as belonging to the Gladiator but they do not work in-game. It seems that none of the joystick controls work.

 

In fact, WoWarplanes seems to have major issues recognizing certain Windows 10 certified joysticks such as the VKB-Sim Gladiator.

 

Is there a workaround or solution?

There was a post on the EU forum some time ago by someone who also has that stick. But I think his problem was the axis ...

I know some people might like a different joystick, but I have had no problems with the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro. It seems to work best with this game although I will admit it's not the nicest. And it is cheap at around 35.00 US dollars.

Just saying if you can't get yours to work correctly.

I'll second that, goose.  I'm about to get my second.  I know there are some players who just use them and up and replace them.  They're actually pretty good for the price so the "disposable" approach ain't that bad for $45 Cdn plus tax at Best Buy online.

I used to buy two, with warranties. Always had an extra. Now I am trying out a TM 1600 M. Too touchy and not worth the extra money. Plus, for some reason, after my last Winblows 10 update, I have to re-calibrate the (insert name of a favored deity here) danged thing in Winblows every 5 flights.  :izmena:

Thanks for that, I actually learned some things outta this. Have been wanting to get back to learning the stick. Makes it a totally different experience. Frustrating but fun, like a lot of things in life.

 

The least of which is what plane to fly. Good luck out there.

I might be able to help a little here. 

 

I don't run VKB kit but I am running Virpil stick, rudder pedals and throttle.

The stick worked straight out the box, implementing the rudder pedals and throttle to "play nice" with World of Warplanes took a little configuration in Virpils software because indeed the game did not recognise various axes correctly. 

 

I don't know the VKB software at all, but it may allow you to change axis ID's etc. (always make a "default" backup if this involves a firmware flash of the hardware as Virpil does)

 

Alternative methods include using either Joystick Gremlin or Universal Control Remapper alongside vJoy. Very powerful tools that allow you to reconfigure most of your functions. 

For testing this vJoy monitor and DIView are also very useful.

The TM 1600 M turned out to be a nightmare. Bought in late December , failed in early March. Thrustmaster Customer Service Hoovered a large wing wang, then stalled until manufacturer's warranty was "void". Luckily I had purchased a Squaretrade warranty and they paid me the money cause they won't even warranty the stupid things anymore.
