View Full Version : Stick seems too sensitive

I have a Logitech 3D Pro, I'm sure it's not the stick, there must be some adjustment that I don't understand but it's almost impossible to shoot an enemy plane. The slightest movement on the stick moves the nose dramatically http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

in Hardware Settings, Input, you can set a Dead Zone, which will mean you have to move the stick more before it moves the plane. That might help ya problem.

You can also adjust the input curves for your various axis, to make them less sensitive over smaller motions.

Personally, I use these values for pitch and roll.

Thanx guys, I'll try the dead zone and I'll try these settings for pitch & roll. I suspected I could do it with that but didn't know what settings would be helpful http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Thanx again.

Alky38 - you seem to have the same problem with lining up shots as I do (I've also got Logitech Extreme 3D Pro) - I thought it was worse when I had some trim "wound in" - as if the game automatically added any trimmed control deflection to any subsequent stick deflection. SHRUG - I dunno.

**following updated since 3.02 patch**
Anyway, I have found the following to help me - I set my pitch map to still be fairly linear but dropped down from the default max and up from the default min - here are my current maps (Logitech 3D Pro):
PITCH: Min 25 to Max 88 - linear inbetween
ROLL: Min 20 to Max 100 - linear inbetween
YAW: Min 30 to Max 100 - linear inbetween

That's with deadband and filtering both zero.

I set the pitch maximum to a point that makes stall behaviour comfortable for me - If you feel it's too generous with regard to stalls then lift it a bit then readjust the inbetween values to linear from min to max.

I had preciously made a reference to running at max FOV here but the FM improvement in patch 3.02 plus successful joystick settings has made everyhting aok even in zoomed view - altho I still find lead computing easier in expanded FOV.

Interesting. Getting a yaw on mine, (3D pro/laptop) much like an incipent adverse yaw, or dutch roll, that makes shoot'n a spray and pray. Much less of a problem with the X45 at home.

I think progress is being made on these control issues, a good thing!

Keep in mind that if you don't have the Logitech Profiler operating then for some reason the controller inputs go haywire in the game - ie. off axis spikes etc. - almost like the joystick is buggered - activate the profiler and it's all sweet again.

Note: the profiler is active without you even realising it (the icon in the system tray can be turned off from within profiler) I wasn't even aware the profiler was running until I deliberately turned it off - prior to that it must have been enabled these last 7 months since I installed new processor and mobo and sofware/drivers for all devices but I didn't even know it.
