After a longer pause I’m comming back to Oolite and its interesting community OPZ/OPX packs and so I’ve downloaded the latest version (I believe this one, I don’t know though).
I have big problems with my joystick Logitech WingMan 3D: immediately when I touch the stick the ship starts to move and spin around (yaw). I then set all Deadzone values for roll/pitch/yaw higher to 0.0850 but still the problem remains. What can I do in the settings? I really want to play with a joystick because keyboard / mouse will utterly give the AI any advantage in combat 🙂
About OPZ/OPX packs:
Is it enough to simply place them in the Addons folder to activate the packs?
I have checked that my joystick is recognized in my Windows 7, it is, and I re-calibrated it.
Yes, I’m using the Oolite’s settings, I go in the Joystick Configuration and set the buttons/axes as I wish. I’ve already done as you suggest with the Spline making a smooth non-linear increasing curve, trying more or less severe Deadzone adjustments, but all this shows no changes to my problem: a little touch of the joystick and the ships starts spinning. If I make the stick vibrate a little bit with 2 fingers then the spin will eventually stop. But: using the joystick is currently impossible. The 2 Roll/Pitch bars in the HUD are correctly centered and don’t move during the un-volunteer spin.
I will try to use another joystick, will have to grab in my numerous boxes…But my current joystick does well in other games that I’m currently in, like GP4 Formula One, or other flight sims.
Ok, it’s my joystick or the Yaw setting. I’ve just plugged a Wingmen Attack 2 with no 4th axis and no yaw (a predecessor of the WingMan 3D). Here no glitch whatsoever, all works fine. I now will re-plug the other one and disable yaw to see, but I doubt that’s it:
The joystick is rather old and it didn’t get a gentle touch all over the time, if you see what I mean :mole:
