Does this help at all? (Also mentioned in the Known Issues & Workarounds Sticky thread.)

You could try sending Bourrinopathe a PM and ask if they could update their post if you link it. Just a hope at least.

I have a warthog setup with the metal VKB pedals. Took me a bit to figure out how to get the game to recognize the pedals, but eventually I got them to work. X rotation IIRC.

Not sure if the rubber pedals are the same?

Heh, I read rubber as meaning rudder.

What are you doing to recognize it in the game and that everything works?

Ok, I can be a bit literal at times... ;)

The same rules still apply as it seems. If X finds a device that doesn't have any anolgue X and Y axis assigned to it, it won't show up in the game. So the solution for me was to reassign the rotary X and rotary Y to axis X and axis Y in the VKB Device Config tool as shown in the following to screenshots...

1.) This is what is supposed to be the default

2.) This is what X needs it to be

Just switch the axis from rotary to analogue ones, go to Action and then Set your new config. Restart X after that in case it's already running.

I'm seriously not sure why this hasn't been fixed by now because every single sim I'm playing does not suffer from this very issue.

Hope it helps all you VKB T-Rudder users out there while playing X.
