Jerky Joystick Hat Switches

Recommended Posts

I'm really digging ChasePlane, lots of fun, but I have a question. I've been playing with the settings to get the smoothest transition, either when panning with my joystick hat switch, or assigned buttons, but I always get this sudden jerk in the beginning of each move or switch. I use a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro. I also have a Xbox 360 Controller, and on it I get silky smooth motion when I use the two hat joystick on it. Same with the two front trigger buttons which I use for rolling my camera, very smooth. I guess my question is, does it have to do with my main joystick, calibration, or is there a setting in ChasePlane I can adjust to avoid the jerky move?

You've probably already done this, but make sure that the hat switch isn't also defined in the simulator or FSUIPC4.  

I experienced something similar with my Saitek yoke when I failed to remove it from FSX during my initial usage.

Thanks Ernie, I'll double checked to make sure it's not defined in the simulator. I'm sure it's not in my FSUIPC4. Will come back to confirm later today.

That was the issue with my Logitech hat switch, Ernie. I had disabled it in FSX, but forgot to do the same in P3D. Now that I have, and allowing ChasePlane to control the joystick, the hat works as smooth as silk. Still a little jerky on my number key pad, but it only happens when I switch from my pilot and copilot view, which I'm using the number 7 and number 9 key. It's how I had it in EZdok when use to have EZdok.
