It may not know what those buttons are. Use your mouse software to bind those buttons to something not used ingame (UIOPS maybe?). Then you can bind those keyboard keys to the action you want.

I don't use a traditional joystick (I use a 3D Mouse), but setting my 3D Mouse as a joystick allows me to bind as I need ingame with no issues. Maybe it's something specific to the joystick you're all using?

Well I am using a Logitech G13(says its a joystick in devices) and G9x mouse. I have never really used the software for the mouse. I cna check to see if I can bind those buttons like you said.

I have a Cyborg X joystick. Hoping it works but cant play til 28th here in UK. Seems like there are three main issues atm....

1- People getting kicked on PB servers
2- Mouse bindings dont seem to work always
3-Joystick support......this should have been perfected for the final release!

I have a Logitech Extreme 3D and had to unbind all joystick settings for "on foot" tab otherwise I would be always zoomed in. I am sure you don't need to unbind everything but since I would never use the joystick for infantry, I just unbound everything for the least amount of headaches. Also throttle caused issues if it was up as it was essentially always on. Of course, turning down the throttle fixed that though.

I have only done single player and coop though so far where the heli coop mission worked fine with the joystick. Have yet to do land vehicles or jets yet so can't say if that is a problem.

I'm using a brand new Thrustmaster 16000m and it works flawlessly in BF3. It recognizes all the buttons so I just bound them appropriately and inverted the controls, it works great.

I could never get my Xbox 360 controller to work for BC2 choppers, so I'm guessing they wont have much support on BF3 for them either.

I don't know, I'll try my best to describe my set-up for using it...

It's plugged in through my G15 if that makes any difference. I don't have any software installed specifically for the joystick, but I have the keyboard software.

Well here is some ss' of my bindings



I also unbound all the joystick settings from the other tabs (on foot, vehicles etc..)

360 controller worked fine for me in the beta, I don't have the full game but it should work. You had to have the controller plugged in before the game was launched though, kind of weird.
