# 1 Logitech Attack 3 Joystick
11-16-2013, 11:37 AM
I'm trying to figure out how to make this work with the game and the default button setup..... makes no sense at all. After tinkering with custom bind commands for a few minutes I managed to bind +1 accelerate to button 5, and accelerate toggle to button 2, but.... How do you get it to work right?

What I want to do is setup:
trigger to be energy weapons fire
button 2 as fire torpedos
button 4 as decelerate
button 5 as accelerate
button 3 as throttle toggle

the other six buttons and the scroll wheel I'm not planning to use.
HAIL HYDRA!

Anyways, after a lot of tinkering.... I've even though managed to get accelerate to work, and throttle toggle to work on button 2, I can't seem to get decelerate to work no matter what I do.... or energy weapons.

I tried using the console command: /bind Joy4 "throttleadjust -.25"

but.... even though it lists it in the joystick commands it doesn't actually work.

so does this mean no one knows how to make a joystick work with this game?

I noticed this in the Xbox controller thread:

Leaving them AS DEFAULT, here's what the button assignments REALLY are, in joystick button numerical order: (( though I'm beginning to think it's like this for almost all sticks ))

Button 01 = Ab
Button 02 = Bb
Button 03 = Xb
Button 04 = Yb
Button 05 = Lb
Button 06 = Rb
Button 07 = Ltrigger
Button 08 = Rtrigger
Button 09 = Select (( in game, it would be the "cancel button" ))
Button 10 = Start (( in game, it would be the "accept button" ))
Button 11 = Lstick
Button 12 = Rstick

For the view switch nob... perfect for routing power to individual shields I think
Dpad up = Joypad_up
Dpad down = Joypad_down
Dpad left = Joypad_left
Dpad right = Joypad_right.

Simple binding command for those who don't quite know what to do... open your chat window to local or zone, then open your options window and go to key binds. Hover your mouse over the function you want, like, Fire All Phasers, you should see a tool tip appear under you cursor, that says "Use manually with /FirePhasers" To bind that to say... button 1... type into the chat window:

/bind Ab FirePhasers

and for forward shields:
/bind Joypad_up +power_exec Reroute_Shields_Forward

No need for the / to go before the name of the function like in the tool tip bubble. Just repeat the process for each desired function until you have the config you want.
Hmm... interesting thoughts. I'll have to tinker with it.

Thx for the share, i have been contemplating getting a joystick to play the game. Is there a thread dealing with keybinds that you know of?

Hmm... I was able to get some of it to work... I'm definitely gonna have to tinker more.

here is further info: http://sto.gamepedia.com/List_of_console_commands
http://sto.gamepedia.com/Key_binds

I'm still working on creating a fully functional setup. I'm really not sure WHY my current attempts aren't working either.

I can get +throttle and throttletoggle to work but FirePhasers doesn't.

I think I may have found part of my problem:
Quote:
LB Button4
RB Button5
LeftTrigger Button6
RightTrigger Button7
Select Button8
Start Button9
LStick Button1
RStick Button11
JoypadUp PovUp0
JoypadDown PovDown0
JoypadLeft PovLeft0
JoypadRight PovRight0
MovementX X
MovementY Y
AB Button0
THAT^ is the configuration that my joystick is using. Apparently several of the buttons that I want to use aren't mapped at all... oy...

YAY! a set of binds that worked:
Quote:
/bind AB "FirePhasers"
/bind XB "throttletoggle"
/bind LB "throttleadjust .25"
/bind YB "throttleadjust -.25"
I had to redo my button layout to make it so that all of my buttons were actually mapped to something first.

I suppose I should explain how this works.

On my joystick, I have a trigger, buttons labeled 2-5 on the stick, buttons labeled 6-11 on the base, and a round thing with a + and -.

Attempting to map "Button3" or "Joy4" to something almost inevitably failed. I was only able to ever get 2 of the buttons to work when trying it that way.

spafmagic's post gave me an idea that I needed to figure out what names the software used internally for the buttons.

trigger = button0
2 = button1
3 = button2
4 = button3
5 = button4
etc....

But as I mentioned we can't reliably use "Button4" for a keybind.

Instead, we need to look to see what it translates to in the joystick setup. For that, I'm gonna take the list I posted earlier9 from my joystick config file) and rearrange it by button #(and leave out the non-button entries).

AB Button0
LStick Button1
XB Button2
YB Button3
LB Button4
RB Button5
LeftTrigger Button6
RightTrigger Button7
Select Button8
Start Button9
RStick Button11

now the label to the left of Button is what you need to map to.

which brings me to the other list I posted above

/bind AB "FirePhasers"
/bind XB "throttletoggle"
/bind YB "throttleadjust -.25"
/bind LB "throttleadjust .25"

I had to put each of these in manually, but you should be able to use /bind_save and /bind_load to copy the setup to another character after you get it to work once.
