I'm having a similar problem frown.gif
Helicopter controls, with X-Box controller!
I want to use "left stick" for throttle! I can set throttle up, but not throttle down confused.gif

Whata joke, and who knows when they will get it "working" mad.gif

Anyway, with some input from others online and in game, I decided to test the following method and I can confirm
IT DOES FIX joystick issues, at least on the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro. Here's what to do:


1. Load CAMPAIGN mode and then OPTIONS / Key Bindings to adjust your controls. Do this so your not sitting around like a retard, taking up server space and getting booted in multiplayer, its being polite!



2. Go through Infantry/Vehicle controls and clear out ALL JOYSTICK settings/buttons/axis. This will take some time, but its the only way to assure it will work properly. SET MOUSE/KEYBOARD settings as you see fit

3. Go through Jets/Helicopters and clear out EVERY SINGLE BUTTON/AXIS for Mouse, Keyboard. Again, this is very tedious but its necessary for this to work.

4. Once you have cleared out the settings as indicated above, exit game, install your joystick and calibrate with Windows or whatever software is necessary for your joystick

5. Reload game, Go back to CAMPAIGN then OPTIONS / Key Bindings and set your axis/buttons for your jet and helicopter as you see fit. GO THROUGH EACH JOYSTICK BUTTON/AXIS and RE BIND or Clear it out as every joystick button layout is different. With my Logitech extreme 3D, every single button needed to be remapped for it to work, but YMMV! Be sure to save often in case you screw up!!


That should take care of it. Load up multiplayer and you should now have control in the skies! Happy flying!!

I tried this and it didnt work. What I did was unbind all the joystick controls and used my joystick software to map to the keyboard, this is the only way it worked for me.

I am using a Logitech Attack 3

I got my Extreme 3D working pretty well, but my thrust button opens commo-rose, and my chase camera button opens the main menu. I don't understand what's up. The thruster WORKS, but if I hold it, the commo-rose stays open, and if I tap my camera button it opens the Esc menu.

Anyone know where the config file is located for BF-3?
Because, I want Throttle up and down on the same axis!
And to me, that isn't much to expect biggrin.gif

I'm thinking, as I have throttle up already on the axis I want to use. I'd be able to edit the config for throttle down smile.gif

Yes mine does the same, it will throttle up, but it stays at max throttle after that.

Yeah, I'm trying to set mine up the same as RC Aircraft transmitters cool.gif

This is me playing with the controls I'm wanting to use smile.gif
And as I have them sorted. I'd like not to have to use different controls ninja.gif

Just watch the first minute, it gets boring biggrin.gif
