#evil #evil Ok I've tried everything i know to get my slider to work in the game but it won't work. I tried the tester and it shows it in there but I can't calibrate it to work in the game. I have a Microsoft sidewinder. I tryed changing the Keyboard.inp file but nothing works. Can someone please tell me what needs to be changed in the keyboard file so that it works.

More detail please. "The tester" - do you mean FSSDOEJoystick.exe? What text did you try in the inp file? Do you have x and y axes working? By "slider" you mean for the throttle? What axis does FSSDOEJoystick.exe report when you move the slider?

I decided it was to much of a pain to try and figure out. the joystick control were to sensitve, and I didn't want to spend weeks trying to figure it out. But thanks for your reply!

I also have a Microsoft sidewinder joystick and also had problems with the throttle but after installing Throttle fix .exe have had no more problems.It's only a small exe.306Kb but I cannot remember where I downloaded it from.If you can't find it anywhere I can send it to you.

Frenchy,

It doesn't take weeks. I also have a Sidewinder.

For the slider, make sure you have this line in your keyboard.inp file: inpThrottleAnalog = Joystick JoystickSlider1 : 0 (with no ; in front of it.)

For sensitivity, in your sdemons.ini file, use a negative value for JoySensitivity. Try different ones but I use: JoySensitivity=-4.016000. I don't know where the .16000 came from. Confused
