hello, my logitech extreme 3d pro joystick works well except the throttle slider,
the slider input values changes between -1 and +1
when l push the slider half way throttle input is 0 (zero)
what is wrong with my joystick?
thank you.

nothing is wrong with your joystick... that's how the throttle works... i have the same thing on my Thrustmaster T16000M... i forget what i did to get the throttle to be zero when pulled all the way back but i know that i didn't do any editing of any config files... i think i worked it out in my OS's joystick calibration tool...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

Replace logitech extreme pro.xml axis 2 (windows) with this new script? :idea:

Code: Select all
<axis n="2">
 <desc>Throttle</desc>
  <direction>forward</direction>
   <binding>
    <command>nasal</command>
    <script>controls.throttleAxis()</script>
   </binding>
  </axis>

Interesting problem PeterPan, please let us know how you manage to fix it. :?:
