I get exact the same result as reported by HoralkaEU with my MS SideWinder joystick. No possibility to bind individual POV directions.

The solution for me was xpadder:

I assign the movements to keys in OT, and then use xpadder to assign those keys to the MS Sidewinder.

(Indeed xpadder is a savior for using joystick in many games, like Battlefield 3 & 4).

Thank you, I did exactly the same with my old but good MS Sidewinder FF2 joystick.
For the moment, only "glance view", while for pan view I am using the mouse pad (my PC is a notebook) but I will try if it's possible to assign pan to the hat switch ;)

Hi!

Xpadder is not working for me in OT anymore; is like the keystrokes generated by XP are not detected by OT. Any idea? (it works perfect with other games).

This should be resolved. Can someone set enable_hid_logging=true in eng.cfg and get us the eng.log from a short session where just the pov buttons on MS Sidewinder joysticks are pressed, in some predefined sequence? Like clockwise from up.

I'll do it tonight, when I get home (is 7:39 a.m. here, right now). Thanks a lot!

Hi again!

Here are two eng_log:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/f1zb7i6be6he7q3/eng_log.zip?dl=0

In the first one I used just  the pov, in the second one, the  eight buttons.

If I can do something else, please let me know.

Thanks!

Thanks. Something's wrong there with the logging, button and axis events are there but no pots. But I have no pot messages even with Saitek joysticks here, even though the pot works (in default settings it turns the view). I'll have to check why it's not being logged.

I'm trying to bind the hat switches of my Thrustmaster T.16000M to the look_vert and look_horz actions so I can pan around smoothly using the up/down/left/right hat buttons.

However, there are 2 issues:
  • The "HAT UP" position cannot be mapped (nothing happens when "Press key / Move joystick axis" appears in the Keybindings editor and I hit the "UP" position on my hat
  • The names of the other button events seem to be off: "HAT LEFT" is recognized as "2:POT0_DOWN", "HAT RIGHT" as "2:POT0_UP", "HAT DOWN" as "2:POT0_LEFT"

This is with the latest beta (0.8.4.6018).

I know I could use the Thrustmaster configuration tool (T.A.R.G.E.T) to simulate keyboard commands for my hat switch  in order to work around the problem, but I would like to avoid that if possible.

Any ideas?

EDIT:

I just saw that the look commands aren't currently working so therefore my idea wouldn't work anyway:

Look commands haven't been yet ported to the new key mapping system, it will be possible to map them to the hat once that's done.
