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.
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.
I painstakingly went through all the key bindings for the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro, and came up with a "translation" for the controller binds. They are not in order of the list at the beginning of page 1 of this thread or in my quote of it in my prior post.
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.
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).
