    Hi.
    I use simtools 2.1 on Windows 10.
    It works just fine with joystick plugin for some time, then crashes.
    It does not matter if I touch the joysticks (e.g. make movement) or not.

    It seems stable with No limits.

    Any suggestions?

    Just to clearify. Game manager crashes first, then Game engine.
    Restarting both and it works fine again for some time.

    You really need to give more information and post pictures of all of your settings.

    What hardware is being used?

    What game is affected?

    Well I wish that simtools had better exception handling with some usefull error messages.

    As I said it crashes continuously with joystick plugin, so no game running. It's the Game manager that crashes first (the joystick plugin keeps running with no problem).
    Running other games like NoLimts works fine to.

    I have a very dirty solution for now. I made a bat script that keeps restarting game manager and engine every time it crashes. So when I am in (vr) game motion stops for a few seconds and come back without having to do anything. But not optimal ;)
