Thread: Quick work around for Joystick troubles | Forums

  1. #1
    Not sure if this is just limited to the Saitek Cyborg family or if it extends to other makes/models as well.

    My stick and the force feedback in game were conflicting to the point that I had no trim control at all.

    The Fix\Work Around:
    Disable Force Feedback in the Producer.cfg file.

    Find it here:
    ...\Lock On\Config\producer.cfg

    What to do:
    Change the TRUE flag to FALSE

    This solved my problem, and I have the feeling that any other Saitek users with problems will find that it may work for them also.

    (This could be a useful sticky Moderator Folks..hint, hint)

    Since there seems to be quite a few people who still need this, it really does need to be a sticky!

    is it possible these problems could affect the NON force feedback models of FF joysticks? ie could it affect the control of a top gun afterburner II non FF if its not being detected properly?

    Yes. I have a non-FF stick and I couldn't do a thing with it until I disabled the FF in the producer file. At first I thought that this was only a Saitek problem, but then was reading about Logitech, MS and Thrustmaster. CH seems either to be alright or the owners just don't report any trouble. Anyway, I firmly believe that this is a global issue with the FF coding.

    After the patch 1.02 - i am totally happy how my Saitek Cyborg 3D works with force feedback and trimmers!
    Except for one thing: i found that the planes (especially Su-line) are way too twitchy on the pitch axis. But here's the cure: (i found it on russian lock on forum) - if you have this problem (jerky pitch) - go to Lock On folder - Config folder - file joyrange.cfg, open it with Notepad and change 400 to at least 1000.
    (I tried to set even 2000, but got a real FPS hit). Now the jerkiness decreased dramatically, and i have pleasure flying!
