FAQ

Q: The app says “Searching for server”, but never finds it.

A: Touch Pilot Server must be running (open) on your PC whenever you use the tablet app. Open Touch Pilot Server from your Start Menu, then open the app on your tablet. If it’s still not connecting, see the troubleshooting guide.

Q: The brake buttons don’t work in FSX

A: For the brakes, set the repeat slider to max for left, right, and both. Leave the repeat slider on minimum for parking brakes. See the FSX setup instructions.

Q: Can I use Touch Pilot One on my phone?

A: While it is theoretically possible, it would be rather impractical. The buttons would be too small to accurately press on a phone’s small screen.

Q: Can I edit the control labels in Touch Pilot One?

A: Not at this time.

Q: Do you plan to make a version of Touch Pilot One that is fully customizable?

A: A lot of people are asking for this. We can’t promise anything right now, but it is definitely on our minds.

Q: Do you plan to make versions of Touch Pilot One that have different looks, like WWI and WWII?

A: Again, we would like to. Maybe.

Q: I get unexpected joystick input in other games, like Battlefield 3

A: You can disable the Touch Pilot Virtual Joystick if this happens. Open your device manager, expand Human Interface Devices, right-click on Touch Pilot Virtual Joystick, and select disable. To enable it, do the same except select enable. No reboot is required for the change to take effect. Future versions of Touch Pilot Server will automatically disable the driver when it’s not in use.
