    Setting up controls

    Hi all,

    I got an problem, I have an thrustmaster warthog and rudder pedals. Now I am trying to setup my controls only problem is that it seems to detect movement in my throttle which means it decided to add my throttle to whatever I want to bind.

    Anyway to fix this?

    Your "thrustmaster" is FCS HOTAS pack (T.16000M joystick + TWCS throttle + TFRP pedals)?

    An hypothesis: unless in joystick X,Y axis (Hall sensor) this combo use potentiometer in axes, that are subject to send spurious electric signals, AKA "spikes", due dirt or wear out in pot' resistive trail, or maybe a pinch wire causing an intermittent electric signal.

    For check this, test your controllers with VKB JoyTester, without touch the grips axis should present a straight, solid line in the test.

    http://ftp.vkb-sim.pro/Programms/VKB_JoyTester.zip

    CloD axis assignments GUI is high sensible, so an smaller unwanted signal from throttle axis is always detected, prevent you assign the axis of other devices.

    As workaround try: unplug throttle from USB, open the game and assign joystick e pedal axis, save (APPLY), close the game, connect throttle and now assign their axis.

    BTW - If you controller is under warranty contact Thrustmaster about the issue.

    No it is an thrusmaster warthog with TFRP pedals. But I will try that, thank you.

    Warthog throttle have only one axis with potentiometer, is the "friction" lever.


    EDIT - Other way to deal with an spiking axis is made a temporary calibration, using joystick software or the "universal" DVIEW, an set a big deadzone (20/30%) in the affected axis.

    After assign all axes remove this deadzone.

    Re: Setting up controls

    Hello, rowns

    I have a Thrustmaster Warthog and noticed similar problems but it was due to my not plugging a powered usb hub (which I use to connect all my controllers to the pc) to the power supply - easily done with the plethora of equipment, the tangled spaghetti mess of wires, and all the plugging and unplugging which goes with flight simulation.

    This was causing some of the Warthog axes to automatically assign themselves to the axis binding.
