Just what exactly do these settings do? I have adjusted them from the stock settings and they seem to reduce jerkyness, but I would like to know what the difference between them is and what is a good setup.

Thanks

Deadband adjusts how far you must move your stick from the center before any actual movement is made in the game. This is generally for people whose stick has some "slack" in the middle so when they let go of the stick and it slacks to the side, the game will still think it's centered and fly straight. If you have a good stiff stick http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif then you can leave this set to zero.

Filtering softens out your movements of your joystick and makes it so of your jerk your stick from side to side, the game will move your ailerons slower and softer than if you had zero filtering. If your joystick is malfunctioning (it acts crazy and the input jumps around sometimes, filtering can help smooth those bumps out ). If you have a stick that doesn't jump/shake around a lot then I reccomend setting this to zero as well for fast responsive feedback instead of a slushy feel.

Joystick filtering is for filtering high frequencies (damaged resistors) in joystick response out - this is meant for old game-card sticks and should NOT work on any USB stick http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
