I have identical issue with my Saitek x52 (regular, not pro).

Game setup recognize it but it is not working in the game.
It worked several updates ago.

Hi,
The most recent fixes are out in public beta (switching instructions https://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=392992) so anyone who's not afraid can test them;)

I also have something I'd like those with joystick issues to try.
Open a console and do (note it's lower case L and not upper case i):
Quote:
ls -lL /dev/input/by-id/

You'll get something like this:

crw-r--r-- 1 root root 13, 2 May 12 16:53 usb-©Microsoft_Corporation_Controller_0957272-joystick

You'll likely see your joystick twice, once with -event-joystick and another just -joystick.
In the example the event-joystick one doesn't have read permissions for anyone other than root. Then the simple (albeit annoying) workaround is to just do:
Quote:
sudo chmod o+r /dev/input/by-id/usb-©Microsoft_Corporation_Controller_0957272-event-joystick


It does not help.

Regarding Avaricia's issue on page 42:

I fixed this by downloading the current zlib source code (1.2.11) from their website and making a slight edit to it. It was very easy.

Just extract whatever archive you download from the zlib site (.zip, .tar.gz, w/e) somewhere, then open up the main header file (zlib.h) in whatever your preferred text editor is. Then change the version number to 1.2.9 (from 1.2.11); it will be easy to locate, near the top and in a #define. Then just (in a terminal in the directory) run ./configure followed by make. Locate the new zlib you've compiled (libz.so.1.2.9), copy it into your X3 libs and rename it to libz.so.1 and you should be good to go.

Sorry if I was too detailed, but I wanted to make sure you knew exactly what I did Smile

Edit: Oh, I see there were other solutions posted already. Well, no harm in listing another. I'm new to this old-school forum interface.

Solved zlib issue by downloading 1.2.9 version from https://zlib.net/fossils/, compiling it and placing into game lib folder

Yesterday Steam updated and after the update I found no games installed. Now I have to download 7.3 GB again???

This Steam thing look like junkware, any way to run the game alone ON Linux?

Thanks Smile

Do you just mean that you can't find them listed in your Steam Library, or that all the game file folders are physically missing from Drive:\Steam\steamapps\common ?

I have not checked if the files was there.
On the help online I read Steam installer should have recognised the installation files already present on the hd, skipping the download. But anyway Steam downloaded the whole game again.
