Even though I was burned by Logitech Gaming Software once before (while my G930 headset and G15v1 keyboard are supported, my G700 mouse is not), I still chose to buy a Logitech product while shopping for an inexpensive new joystick to use with simulators. I even did my research ahead of time, determining that yes, the Extreme 3D Pro Joystick works with Logitech Gaming Software.
Ultimately I bought the E3DP over the Thrustmaster, even though the Thrustmaster had more features. I wanted to integrate my driver software, not add more programs sitting in memory. The E3DP arrived in the mail today, and when I plugged it in, the Logitech Gaming Software won't recognize it. The disk in the box is for a (much) older version dated 5.x, so I wasn't about to try that. Google searches haven't uncovered anything, because people rarely mention version numbers, just "Yeah, it works with Logitech Gaming Software." Only, it seems, not.
Is it possible that the E3DP works ONLY with the older version of LGS? That seems patently ridiculous, but after the Setpoint/G700 debacle, I'm not quite willing to give Logitech the benefit of the doubt here, despite the fact that common sense dictates that if it works with the older version, it should work with the newer one.
Someone help me out, set me straight, tell me what I need to know.
Did I just buy yet another current Logitech Product that is NOT supported by the latest version of their integrated software?
