This problem is normally caused by certain joysticks and other input devices that have buttons (or more commonly switches) which send a continuous signal to the game. This effect causes some problems with the way DirectX handles joystick/joypad input, and leads to the keyboard repeat problem. The most common devices to cause this are Saitek X45 and X52 joysticks, but these are not the only ones to do it.

The fix for this is to ignore one or all of the buttons that is generated by the switch, and X3 includes a means to do this. To ignore a button, follow these steps:
  • Locate the shortcut to X3 that you use to play the game (Start Menu, Desktop, Quick launch, etc.).

  • Right click on the shortcut and select Properties.

  • In the Target box, add the following to the end of the command listed in the box:
    -ignorejoy 1
    Replace 1 with the number of the button to ignore - may take some trial and error to find.

  • Add another -ignorejoy N entry for each additional button to ignore

  • Click OK

  • Repeat for any other shortcuts you use to launch the game


Hopefully that will take care of it although it is possible that this won't be a complete workaround for some hardware.
