Yes i did try that, tried with my joystick, tried with no joystick, still nothing. Tried unplugging and removing the joystick from my computer completely and even that changed nothing, still same error message. Here is a picture of that message, and at the time my joystick wasnt even plugged in and i had "no joystick" chosen as the option. And i did save the options before launching. Same thing happens if its plugged in and chosen as the option.
