To help share the learnings arising from assembly troubleshooting I have created this forum and will kick it off with an example from my own experience. To date we have been doing this in Discord but good knowledge is easily lost and buried in that environment.
So this incident occurred today. I rebuilt a flight stick as well as a universal hub and wired it up for the first time. I plugged the stick into the hub and connected it to my PC then fired up the game controllers application (joy.cpl) to see that everything was working apart from the pitch (forward backward) axis. You can see that the X (roll) axis is displayed with the cross dead centre (I've already run a calibrate which is why its dead centre) but no Y (pitch) axis is showing. So the question is why? In this thread I'll take you through my testing plan and troubleshooting.
NB: If the Y axis was showing but not behaving correctly that would be a different scenario. The key thing here is that the Y axis is absent from the game controller.
By the way, if you don't know how to access this app, it's standard windows. Just type joy.cpl into the search bar.
