Controller!

Postby justinkeuben » Tue Nov 28, 2017 12:22 pm

Hello folks.

I always played sim on my mac, what not was a problem but with the new update sim doesn't work on my mac anymore.. (whatever)
Now i am playing it again on my PC but the steering goes slithly left or right. so i bought a new controller but its the same problem.

On my mac i had a button that the middle point of the steering could adjust. is there something i can use on windows??

Thanks for your help!!

You can edit your dead zones manually by editing your config file (in your personal folder) with a text editor like Notepad++.

Search for lines like these:

left_key=(-0.100000,-0.900000)Controller(XBOX360ForWindows) axis 0
right_key=(-0.100000,0.900000)Controller(XBOX360ForWindows) axis 0

You can then change the first values in parentheses to tighten or loosen your dead zones. Values closer to zero will create a tighter dead zone. You can also change the second value to adjust the point at which the control is fully engaged. Values further from zero will create a broader range, but you may run the risk of not reaching full lock.

You might want to make small adjustments and test it out until you're happy, but I have all of mine set from 0.1 to 0.9.

What values did you choose? It sounds like you have done something wrong if your steering is noticeably slower.

I never even knew you could do this. I've been using the same controller for years because others don't have the same sensitivity of steering. I tried using the values from my old xbox360 controller that I've been using and putting those values on the controller I have now. The sensitivity is better but now the steering veers off to the right. I've tried playing around with the numbers but the steering still veers off to the right.

I'm pretty sure that the problem is that you need to choose values between 0 and 1, but I don't know what controller you are using or how it works.

OK! You will want to have values similar to mine in that case. You can bring the first values closer to zero to tighten the dead zones and further from zero to loosen them. The axes move from -1 to 1, so you will have to stay between those two. Also keep in mind that when editing numbers like this for MXS files, you always go to 6 decimal places.

left_key=(-0.100000,-0.900000)Controller(XBOX360ForWindows) axis 0
right_key=(0.100000,0.900000)Controller(XBOX360ForWindows) axis 0
