Hello All!

I was wondering if you all could help.
In IL2FB's Hardware Setup/Input under JOYSTICK AXES there are 3 options PITCH, ROLL, and YAW. Each has its own Bar or Slider Adjustments, with a Dead Band & Filter Settings!

Now I have always left the settings at there default for my MS-FF2 joystick. I was wondering, has anyone come up with some ideas or enhancments on these setings or should I just leave it be?

Thanks for your time. All the best.

personally i would leave them setup how they are. the settings are really used best for older sticks.

Set all the sliders for all the axis to 100, no dead zone and no filter.

Use Fedit to mod your spring FFB file: Set your offset on the Y axis to -2000. What this does is move the centering forces of the Y axis on the stick a fifth of the way forward.

recalibrate your Microsoft FFB2 Joystick: Set your Y axis to #102 (a fifth of the way down/back)

Now you have a pure stick (no "catching up" as you move furthur from center and no delay as you cross the centerline), and can fly with trim almost all the way back yet level and hands free. Meanwhile most other people have their trim a third of the way forward to fly level, and thus can't turn very hard at high speeds.

Works pretty good unless you fly a plane with no trim.

I personally also like Mudmovers (Hunter82) joystick settings as I like a tighter stick in combat. I think you will also enjoy it friend.
