Joystick problem Logitech freedom [RESOLVED]

Postby tiberian_rebel » Wed Apr 19, 2006 6:06 pm

I recently installed a Logitech Freedom 2.4 cordless joystick. I binded the controls for helicopters and planes. It works regularly when in a helicopter, but when I try to fly a jet, the conrols become inverted and it's damn near impossible to even get off the ground. I've tried re-binding the keys, but it hasn't changed anything. Can someone help?

Yeah there's an option where it's marked inversed control or something like that... Take a look at that.

No, I did notice that and it is not checked.

try checking it and see what happens? Maybe there's a conflicting inversion somewhere else that's causing the problem?

One quirk I did notice with BF2 and setting my joystick bindings was that I only needed to set the bindings for one range and the opposite action was autmatically filled in. This lead to some reversed bindings while setting up my joystick. You may think you are setting the + x axis but in reality BF2 is assigning it the - x axis. This forced me to do some trial and error.

I know this is obvious but when I went to bind my Logitech joystick, I had to be very careful when doing the binding and TEST it while doing it. One of the cool things is that you can easily test and change the bindings while in game so it can go very quickly.

My suggestion is to get in game, check the bindings, go fly. If wrong the hit ESC and tinker with the bindings, hit apply and ESC and do it again till you find out.

I messed around with the controls and fixed the problem. Thanks
