Joystick roll control was created by Herr_Koos
Hi all,

I hope this is the right section for this question; please move it if not.

I'm looking for a way to enable the roll axis on the joystick. I remember that in the older WC games, Left or Right controlled yaw as normal, but Trigger 1 + Left/Right would roll the ship instead of turning. Currently, Roll is tied to 7/9 on the keypad, and this is a bit counter-intuitive. I enjoy using roll manoeuvers as part of my flying style since it comes very naturally. Is there a way to do a joystick button combo assignment in WC Saga, or do you need a unique button per action?

I hope this all makes sense. :-)

Hope this helps?

PITCH = Y Axis. double click on the right config statement and push the stick forward or back.
BANK = X Axis. double click on the right config statement and push the stick to the left or right.
YAW = RY Axis. double click on the right config statement and twist the stick to the left or right.

Config Statement = Ship Controls (Section) 8-)
YAW controls your rudder in a flight sim so moves the FRONT of your craft from left to right as apposed to banking which ROLLS your craft over on its side. :)

Thanks Magnus,

I have tried Y=pitch, X=yaw, and roll = RY (luckily my stick does have a Z axis). It's very difficult to calibrate properly though; the RY axis seems to always be slightly "off-centre", with the result that the ship rolls constanty even when I'm not twisting the stick.

Glad to help mate :)

yes mine does the same, you can re install the software or update it.
you can also open up the joystick and blow out all the dust and food scrapes :lol:
If you have an old stick like mine Extreme 3D Pro then the cleaning it out and checking the connectors
is the best bet... unfortunately its only a temp fix. I over look the problem as I'm CHEAP! :lol:

Happy kitten licking :)

Hey I forgot to mention that if you add too much in the way of throttle and rudder ZONE Assignments it can mess up your other key assignments when trying to change them via the config screen in game.

I had to download the clear profiles program and leave my joystick as default, that and only config the joystick via the in-game config page.

Hope this helps any who read this and are having problems with joysticks :)

I also discovered last night by accident that if I plugged in my USB logitech extreme 3d pro and I had the stick anywhere but center it took that position when I connected it as the center position. I did not realize that I had the stick twisted on the Z axis when I plugged it in before launching the game, but as soon as I went into the first mission all I could do was rotate. Unplugging it and plugging it back in making sure the stick itself was not touched fixed it.
