# 236 Logitech Attack 3
02-10-2012, 09:06 PM
Heya peoples... I figured this may help out a little. I have an 11 button joystick, a Logitech Attack 3. I took some time after noticing a discrepancy with the game's designations of my buttons when I tried binding them. I created a "translation" matrix in text format after finding out that for some physical buttons, the game shows a different number for them.

I also will include some instructions for those who are new to the thread, how to bind the keys, using my configuration as an example.

BTW... make sure you have the region drop menu on Space, or simply be IN space while binding.

Joy Button - Xbox - (Game Designation)

1 - Ab
2 - Bb
3 - Xb (11)
4 - yb (12)
5 - Lb
6 - Rb
7 - Ltrigger
8 - Rtrigger
9 - Rstick (4) - I did reassign Right Stick using the controller options in the game menu to button 9
10- Lstick (3) - I did reassign Left Stick using the controller options in the game menu to button 10

(Xb reads as Joy11 but is physically button 3)
(Yb reads as Joy12 but is physically button 4)

(Lstick reads as Joy3 but initially assigned to button 11)
(Rstick reads as Joy4 but initially has no assigned key)

To bind the buttons, go to the chat menu and type in the key bind commands... I will type out the commands as I did in game to configure my stick. You can try it with my config, or sub for your own.

The Formula: /bind (command) Ab (example button) GenSendMessage HUD_Root FirePhasers (game code)

Can also just copy and paste instead of

Fire All Phasers, type:
/bind Ab GenSendMessage HUD_Root FirePhasers

Fire All Torpedoes, type:
/bind Xb GenSendMessage HUD_Root FireTorps

Fire All Weapons, type:
/bind GenSendMessage HUD_Root FireAll

Throttle Forward, type:
/bind Rb throttleadjust .25

Throttle Back, type:
/bind Ltrigger throttleadjust -.25

Throttle Toggle, type:
/bind Rtrigger throttletoggle

And for Space skill tray row 2, I assigned these buttons and placed my most used skills into the slots reassigned to the joystick's buttons 4, 5 and 10. (the actual buttons mind you.)

Skill Tray Second Row #1, type:
/bind Yb UseTraySlot1 0

Skill Tray Second Row #2, type:
/bind Lb UseTraySlot1 1

Skill Tray Second Row #3, type:
/bind Lstick UseTraySlot1 2
