It appears to me that all the input controls are FUBAR, throttle controlling roll, fire controlling elevator trim, etc etc.

 

 

EDIT: same for Falco, I must fix it on my side it looks like

EDIT2: nvm, I am stupid, didn't notice I had mine set to PS3...

Ooops :lol:

When I hit download, it said that "Your requested file was not found."  Any other places I can find joystick control settings for a Microsoft Sidewinder Pro Force Feedback 2?

Not strictly sharing my config but I've been experimenting with various methods of input over the last few weeks and I've grown quite fond of my current, somewhat exotic setup.

Since I didn't really see anything like it before I thought I was gonna tell you about the general idea and layout.

 

It involves using PS3 peripherials (oddly enough given this is a PS4 game); a PS3 Move Navigation Controller to be precise.

It works just fine on Windows if you have compatible bluetooth, a Mini USB cable to pair it and the free MotionInJoy driver.

 

For the uninitiated: the Move Navigation Controller basically is half a PS3 Sixaxis controller (without motion sensors) for use in one hand.

It's cheap (15€?), wireless, you can still interact with other controllers or the keyboard to some extent while holding it and most importantly:

it makes looking around rather comfortable.

 

Obviously you (or rather I) use a Joystick in the other hand to provide a similar level of comfort to a high quality HOTAS system at low cost (15+25€ in this case).

A more sophisticated joystick would certainly improve the benefit even further, but I believe I have all the essentials covered with a minimum of button fumbling.

The left hand also remains somewhat free to expand the amount of available buttons on the controls by pressing keyboard buttons et cetera... to deal with manual engine controls or what have you. :Ps

This is the one I used up until last Saturday, Nervais. Be advised that sensitivity is all the way down, you might not like that. It's not using all buttons - one for example is push-to-talk on TS - because I always had one hand on the keyboard when not throttling for example for dropping bombs/torpedoes and for trim.

The old ones should work fine, you just have to set up a button for the various calibres.

I understand this is FRB joystick configs mostly here but I'm going to ask anyways; does anyone know where to find config files or tutorials on using the xbox 360 controller or the Ace Combat Joystick. I've used both from day 1 and I want to play FRB/Realistic.

 

My main problem right now when playing in FRB w/ the setup I have on my controller is when i pull back on the pitch no matter how gently I do it my plane will just tumble out of control. I have to do a lot to recover and thats really less then 30% of the time i can fully recover.

 

Any advise to help me use (not replace all together) the setup I have is much appreciated, thanks in advance.

In this link You will find a hands on approach.

 

http://jsbs.enjin.com/forum/m/21199976/viewthread/12153958-how-to-edit-joystick-curves-in-war-thunder-handson-approach

 

This describes how to set it manually, all axes - roll, pitch and rudder.

 

Further out in this thread (my last set up values) is working fine for others than me and the stick I'm using. It's kind of responsive, yet stable when aiming, give it a try

Try vXVKotaVXv's XBox Controller setup

He streams a lot on Twitch ( twitch.tv/vxvkotavxv ), you can see there how effective a pilot can be with the XBox controller.

Hey, I'm playing on a Mac with the T.16000m. I have the profile downloaded but I can't find ANYWHERE within the controller setup screen to import it. Thanks for the help!

These joystick conf-file sharings are useless. They might help someone out a bit, but you have set your stick the way it suites YOU. All you need to know is what every setting does and test it out.

Thanks for all the configs here, but unfortunately I have found them all to be completely useless! This is because of a fundamental flaw in the way War Thunder handles joystick inputs.

 

I have an Xbox 360 controller, a Saitek X52 (standard), a Logitech G25 wheel, and a Logitech Driving Force GT wheel plugged in.

 

(For those interested, the wheel part of the G25 broke, and the DFGT does not have pedals, so I am using the G25 pedals with the DFGT wheel, and it is NOT convenient to have to swap a bunch of USB plugs every time I want to switch game!)

 

You would expect that the Axis numbers and button numbers were per device, so it would be "X52 axis 1", "X52 axis 2", etc, and in most games, it is. This is not the case in War Thunder, though, because it just numbers the axes per system, so the first axis it finds, on ANY device, is "axis 1" and the next is "axis 2" etc.

 

When I download a configuration file, usually the joystick or flight stick is the only thing plugged in, so the axes will be 1, 2, 3, etc in the configuration file. When I load this in War Thunder, it maps these to axis 1, 2, 3, etc on my computer, which means sometimes the elevation axis is mapped to the throttle pedal on the pedals!

 

Is there any way to make this behave sensibly? Even now, I can never unplug a device for fear of screwing up my entire control setup (and in full aircraft, there are a LOT of controls)!
