Looks like someone (Oleg_BS) somewhere got inspired by my IL2-Sticks utility, and took it a step further. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

I want offer to you my utility - IL2-JoyControl for joysticks tuning.

This utility is similar IL-2 Stick, but have any interesting and useful differencies:
1) You can set curves values above 100.
2) Red and green "square" (similar IL2 joy settings) for all axes in HOTAS partition. You can see deviation joystics axe (red square) and rudder in game (green square) with calculation sensivities curves.
3) Curves graf current selected axe have too.
4) You can set curves from presets, by running IL2-JoyControl from command string with parameter (preset filename) without GUI.
....and more...


The big plus to IL2-Sticks is that it shows direct response results from the controllers in the interface, http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif and it shows the resulting forces as the in game interface does!

(Something I knew was possible and doable, but I never wanted to put up the effort to build it into IL2-Sticks... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif Now I can finally put all thoughts on further development on IL2-Sticks aside http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sleepzzz.gif )

I've downloaded it, and looked at it, haven't tested it yet, but it looks like it can do what IL2-Sticks can do, and some more! (Small downside: there's no Help nor documentation)

For existing IL2-Sticks users: You can copy the IL2-Sticks\Profiles right into the Profiles folder of IL2 JoyControl, and use 'm. (You will loose any 'Remarks' you put in with IL2-Sticks though!)

Have Fun!

I used IL2-Sticks so far, but in an early beta. Looking forward to test this tool.

I grabbed this a couple of weeks ago but haven't set it up yet. Knowing I can keep my profiles will make the transition easy. Thanks for the tip. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Great tools. Is so easy to make new profiles and test them. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif
Now I have a dumb question. Can I switch between different profiles on the fly? And how?

Thx.

Nope.

Well, you can switch profiles in the tools, but as far as I know, it won't influence the in game settings... you can allways try though: Alt-tab out of game, change profile, Alt-tab back into game.... It probably won't work mid-mission, it might work in between missions.... though I doubt it...
(BTW, the sim does not support Alt-tab-bing out of it, and back into it... anyweirdthing can happen if you do http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif)

Definitely not. The utility writes the settings to conf.ini and the game only reads conf.ini on initial startup. You have to exit the game and restart to load the new settings.

Nope. The game wont recognise more than 100% control input anyway. As currently set up with 100% on all sliders the game gives up to 10% control deflection for each 10% of joystick deflection but in the original IL2 Sturmovik for versions earlier than 1.04 you could get 100% control deflection for the whole range of joystick deflection if you set 100% on all sliders. Being able to set more than 100% simply allows you to set the response curve above flat like you could in the original Sturmovik release, it doesn't allow you to deflect the in game aircraft beyond their control limits (at least I'd hope not http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif)
