Bios update maybe?

GA-EX58-UD3R (rev. 1.0) - GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - BIOS

Did you read your motherboard manual to see if you can find anything that might cause the problem?

Mines Rev 1.0......- SLI

Bios are good, I just upgraded from RC1 to bought copy, 2 months ago, and I flashed and got the latest of every driver available at the time. From SSD FW's to Lan software. Adding DX 9 was a new idea, figured DX11 was backward compatible....................................

Dx 11 is backward compatible as they say, but you can still update dx9c component, as you have done. You also need a dx11 compatible video card to run dx11 compatible games - either ati 5000 series or the nvidia gforce 400 series.

Vid cards are DX11, but Fighter Ace is only at DX8.1 or 9.

Have you tried the latest nvidia drivers? download from Guru3D.com

Have you tried running the games in compatbility mode with xp - try with xpsp2 and others.

To run a program in compatibility mode - right click a short-cut to the program, or find the program in program files and do likewise - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with vista/xp etc - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start the program.

You might even reinstall it in compatibility mode, but try that lastly.

Got a good test of stuff and still have balking issue with the momentary. Seems to only do it when I'm closing in on someone and I take the shot. When I'm just flying it never balks. Only thing left to do is run new wire. Swapped out everything else.
grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Sorry this is off topic. I'm not into gaming AT ALL because well...it just doesn't interest me. However, I freaked out when I saw that joystick! Do you mean to tell me you can go online, and dogfight others like your flying a plane? If that's so, I would most definately be interested in something like that. Any info on how to get involved in that would be appreciated.

Yes I do fly online with it,
If your at all mechanically inclined, and you already have the tools, saws, screw guns, solder tool and such. I can tell you where to get basic parts. Cost you $100 to $200. You would pay $200+ for a Saitek X-52 ?????
Depends on what grade of pots you buy, and the type of materials you use. I scavenged most of the materials and chair. Stick pictured is the second generation effort.
