To get the second stick to "look" around like when you have the mouse button pressed:

Joystick2_Up "+CamMouseLook"
Joystick2_Right "+CamMouseLook"
Joystick2_Left "+CamMouseLook"
Joystick2_Down "+CamMouseLook"

While I don't use the 360 controller I do use the logitech dual action controller, and have it set up with like this:

First the buttons on the Dual action are a little different from the 360 but it's easy to get used to.

Button 1 = Ab
Button 2 = Bb
Button 3 =Xb
Button 4 =Yb

Other than that all the others are the same as on the 360.

Now onto my mappings, After reading the first part of this thread to learn basic mapping I discovered the following works best for me:

I use the 3 X 10 layout divided into 5 slots each using the X, Y, A and B buttons in their respective slots, and the Right joystick button as a 5th button, that way I can hit any attack or power with my right thumb, I set it up so the Trigger and shoulder buttons work the same way as control and alt do on the keyboard, right ones controlling the 2nd and 3rd lines of slots.

You may wonder, but what about the right side of the first line, which is normally activated by the left trigger. Easy, I remapped the left stick button to activate those. So I have 6 5 button sectors to choose from.

I also set my select button to activate my scanner, the Start button is the interact button. Throttle control is done by the D-pad, forward for faster, back for slower, left for full impulse., right activates fire all for Phasers, Torpedoes, or all weapons depending on if you hit X, Y or B

Now I changed the mappings on the left stick to allow turning, and pitch with that stick. and because of my play style have the cam set to chase cam, and have any option that selects tab target style targeting turned off so my only attacking is done line of sight. It's just me but I can't stand tab targeting or "selected" targeting because it can switch targets on you, or get you attacking an unintentional target, but that's just me.

Here's the mappings:

Joystick2_Left "+left"
Joystick2_Right "+right"
Joypad_Up "throttleadjust .25"
Joypad_Down "throttleadjust -.25"
Joypad_Left "GenSendMessage Throttle_FullImpulse_Button FullThrottle"
Joy1 "Interactwindow"
Joy2 "ScanForClickies"
Joy4 "UseTrayslot0 4"
Joy11 "UseTrayslot0 0"
Joy12 "UseTrayslot0 1"
Bb "UseTrayslot0 2"
Ab "UseTrayslot0 3"
Ltrigger+xb "UseTrayslot1 0"
Ltrigger+yb "UseTrayslot1 1"
Ltrigger+bb "UseTrayslot1 2"
Ltrigger+ab "UseTrayslot1 3"
Ltrigger+rstick "UseTrayslot1 4"

Lb+yb "UseTrayslot2 1"
Lb+bb "UseTrayslot2 2"

# 233 Any Saved Config files?
02-06-2012, 01:47 PM
Has anyone done all this work on their key bindings for the 360 controller, and saved the config files? Would you mind sharing those? Could save us all some time.

# 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 typing...lol.

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

I've been using the following set up for space combat and it's been working fairly well, despite needing a few tweaks. However, I've now hit 25 and have rolled a klingon, and this setup seems to work except for the left and right triggers. They aren't firing my phasers and/or torpedos. I would also like to thank the posters who've shared their configs from which I've borrowed to make this. I would name names, but I honestly don't recall them.

Joy6 "throttleadjust .25"
Joy5 "throttleadjust -.25"
Joy6+joy5 "GenSendMessage Throttle_FullImpulse_Button FullThrottle"
Joy3 "CamReset"

Joypad_down "+Power_Exec Reroute_Shields_Rear"
Joypad_left "+Power_Exec Reroute_Shields_Left"

Joy7+Joy6 "Target_Enemy_Next"
Joy7+Joy5 "Target_Enemy_Prev"
Joy8+Joy6 "Target_Friendly_Next"
Joy8+Joy5 "Target_Friendly_Prev"

I would also like help with why my Target_Friendly bind isn't working, and what's the bind for jumping while on ground missions?

Thanks in advance for reading this and for any helpful advice.

you haven't bound anything to the left or right trigger on its own or for that matter anything that will fire phasers or torps except Joy8+Joy5 "GenSendMessage HUD_Root FireAll", which means you have to press joy5and 8 together to fire all ?

try adding in:

Joy8 "gensendmessage HUD_root firephasers"
Joy8+joy7 "gensendmessage hud_root firetorps"

which will let Phasers fire on the right trigger and torps if you press both left and right together.

your syntax is wrong... for target Friend

which is

"Target_Friend_Near" or "Target_Friend_Next" not Friendly as you have in your bind script.

Thanks much. Wonder why the left and right trigger commands are missing, yet working on my federation ship. I added them in again, thanks for the heads up on that.

Don't suppose you know the bind command to allow jumping when on ground missions? I've tried the obvious, but have failed; probably more bad syntax like above.
