    Smile Joystick and Controls for PC version

    This is how I managed to make the PC version of this game playable with my Logitech Attack 3 joystick:

    1. Make sure that the game has updated to version 1.02 (I had to run the auto-updater twice).

    2. Reduce the dead zone applied to the x and y axis of the joystick.
    *** This will allow you to precisely control the plane rather than constantly over-steering ***

    To do this you need to edit the "default.db.xml" file located in the "Heroes Over Europe\inputconfig" folder.
    • Search for "joy_y_deadzone" and change the Initializer value to 0.015:
      Code:
      <dbAttribute name="Initialiser" value="0.015" />
      <dbAttribute name="Name" value="joy_y_deadzone" />


    • Search for "joy_x_deadzone" and change the Initializer value to 0.015:
      Code:
      <dbAttribute name="Initialiser" value="0.015" />
      <dbAttribute name="Name" value="joy_x_deadzone" />


    • Search for "left_x_livezone" and change the Initializer value to 0.985:
      Code:
      <dbAttribute name="Initialiser" value="0.985" />
      <dbAttribute name="Name" value="left_x_livezone" />


    • Search for "right_x_livezone" and change the Initializer value to 0.985:
      Code:
      <dbAttribute name="Initialiser" value="0.985" />
      <dbAttribute name="Name" value="right_x_livezone" />


    • Search for "left_y_livezone" and change the Initializer value to 0.985:
      Code:
      <dbAttribute name="Initialiser" value="0.985" />
      <dbAttribute name="Name" value="left_y_livezone" />


    • Search for "right_y_livezone" and change the Initializer value to 0.985:
      Code:
      <dbAttribute name="Initialiser" value="0.985" />
      <dbAttribute name="Name" value="right_y_livezone" />

    Save the file and run the game.
    *Note that I also removed all other xml files from the "inputconfig" folder. That might not be necessary.

    3. Re-Load default controls:
    • Click options then Controls

    • Select "Flight Mode" then press the "End" key. This opens the actual custom controls window.

    • Press the "End" key again to load the dafault controls (which are specified in the default.db.xml file)


    4. Customize the controls for easy and enjoyable flying:
    • Note that the roll and yaw labels on the custom controls window are reversed.

    • I strongly recommend mapping the yaw left/right to "a" and "d" and the throttle up/down to "w" and "s".

    The base on my stick gets hot/warm after play, is this normal for an old stick like this?

    thanx
