Hi all,

I've been playing A3 for a few years now and looking forward to at least a few more years playing.

Windows 10 64bit
Arma 3 installed on Steam stable. Latest version etc.
Logitech X56 Pro
Steam Controller
MFG Crosswind Pedals
TrackIR is still working

Anyway, up until about last weekend, all was fine. Last weekend all my controllers seemed to stop interfacing with Arma 3 one by on. Hotas, then the pedals. Now the Steam controller isn't interfacing as it did. Fortunately my TrackIR is still working

I have tried unplugging them, restarting Windows or the game. Also gone into A3 controllers and did the old "refresh" but they will not appear for A3. I can only see XBox controller as an option ... that has always been there.

I have also gone into Steam and ran a file integrity on the A3 files a couple of time.

The controllers all work fine in other games such as IL-2, DCS etc.

Any advice on what steps to take next?

I'm thinking about a new Arma 3 reinstall next. Can't think about what else to do.

hi i had the same problem. if you have not found a solution yet here you go. I found this on the BIS forums posted by user jjrmed:(https://forums.bohemia.net/forums/topic/204689-joystick-detection-problem/?tab=comments#comment-3189235) Post#4

jjrmed:
I might have found the problem and a solution. Nomylol, were you using steam's big picture for other games that need a controller? In my case I had a generic controller added to play rocket league. Turns out that turning off xbox, ps4 and generic controller support can lead to the Joystick being visible again for Arma 3.

I had done exactly that since I play rocket league. I went into Steam Big Picture Mode went to settings -> controller settings and unchecked Playstation configuration support and generic gamepad configuration support.
Basically I unchecked all except for "Guide button focuses steam"

after that just restart arma (I restarted Steam too just in case) and all my controllers showed up again.

hope this helps you too.
