can I calibrate a Logitech extreme 3d pro in windows 8?

J1nxst3r asked on

I'd like to calibrate my Logitech extreme 3d pro in windows 8, as when I use it in flight sims, the pitch is off centre and I am forced to push the joystick down just to maintain level flight.  There used to be a function within Win7 that you could re-calibrate a game controller but this seems to be lacking in Win8. 

 

Why make live HARDER for customers?

In Win8 Start Page, type "joystick" and search.  On the right column, click on "Settings" and then click on "Set Up USB Controllers".

If you don't see the joystick listed, then unplug and plug it in again.  The calibration window opens after that when you click on "Properties", then follow the onscreen instructions.

I ACTUALLY FOUND THE SOLUTION FOR THIS!
After mashing buttons for a bit bring up the "Game Controllers" window.  and before you click on properties.  Press and HOLD the CTRL key and the SHIFT key.  Then click on Properties.
You will see this following window
Happy calibration!
