Thrust by joystick not possible in A330

Postby dervau » Mon Apr 08, 2019 1:14 pm

Hi there,

I use the great A330 but thrust by Joystick axis is not working (whereas controlling throttle via keyboard is no problem).
The thrust lever is not moving and also engine power is not changing when I move my joystick's throttle lever.
I tried unassign and re-assign joystick axis and for test/debug I also assigned Throttle to another axis, but that did not work either.
I don't have this joystick thrust problem with another airplane.
I use a Thrustmaster Afterburner joystick.

Thank you for your help!

I have Thrustmaster Hotas and it works flawless. Check again axis vs throttle assign in joystick dialog, or check calibration for throttle axis.

I deleted the joystick config file in AppData\Roaming\\Input\Joysticks and restarted FlightGear. Then I set up again joystick configuration and throttle axis worked then!
Old xml snippet:
Code: Select all
  <axis n="2">
    <desc type="string">Throttle All Engines</desc>
      <command type="string">property-scale</command>
      <property type="string">/controls/engines/throttle-all</property>
      <factor type="double">1</factor>
      <offset type="double">0</offset>

New code:
Code: Select all
  <axis n="2">
    <desc type="string">Throttle (all)</desc>
      <command type="string">nasal</command>
      <script type="string">controls.throttleAxis();</script>

This config seems to work for all aircrafts.

So this issue is solved.
