Cant get on with this Joystick
4 years agoHelp...
I have always played JG with a mouse but wanted to see if a JS would help PvP using the joystick which would make rolling the ship a lot easier by twisting the stick.
However, this is not the case....i cant hit [censored] !
I bought a Thrustmaster hotas which seems a good stick. Plenty of buttons and a separate throttle.
I have the deadzone set to 0 and 100% sensetivity (any less and the throttle dosent reach max thrust ?)
But i really have trouble aiming. Maybe i have used the mouse too long to change?
But what about a playstation style controller ? Do you know if anyone uses these for this style of game and could they be set up ?
Im sure on one of the progress videos for elite i saw people using this style of controller ?
Any help or advice appreciated and if you are using a game pad style controller, what config and what sort are you using

4 years agoNo idea about the PS-controller, but to train targeting, i would get me a laser-nix and start hunting small flux. you should get into it within some time.
4 years agoThe Elite devguys mostly use the Xbox controller as it takes up almost no space on the desk and has a bunch of axes. My brother got an A10 Warthog and I may get one too. Very nice looking stick.
3 years agoI am beginning to like the controller / Pad, I bought a Logitech F710, a bit of a revelation when you get the set up right. Using it successfully with ED apart form the times when the binds do not work, but I have a feeling that happens when the PC hasn't seen the pad until I press a pad key or move one of the sticks. Not great when it happens when you launch from station pad
