Mapping keystrokes to joystick buttons

Recommended Posts

Just installed a plain vanilla install of XP11. So far so good but two main issues

1) TrackIR works but it is really flaky

2) Cannot find a way to map a keystroke to a joystick button.

Any hints?

 

Thanx,

Vic

I think any sim function/input can be mapped to a keystroke or to a joystick button indifferently. In any case, if you really need to map a joystick button to a specific keystroke, probably you have to use such programs as joy2key or similar.

I don't use TrackIR, but what do you mean with "flaky"?

Well, in P3D and FSX the motion is relatively smooth whereas in XP11 it is very jerky and the view doesn't always go where I'm looking. I'm wondering if anyone has created a profile for XP - looked a bit but found nothing.

Thanx, I'll look into joy2key.

X-Camera freeware addon is very necessary for TrackIR usage - then you can have multiple views. Some views may have TrackIR tracking, others (like PFD view) not. Very recommended!

Thanx! This looks interesting. I've downloaded it and I'll play around this weekend.

Hi Vic,

I can't help you much right now because I am quite away from my sim PC where XP11 is installed, but I can confirm that I successfully used x-camera with TrackIR5, although I do not like to use TrackIR with X-Plane, just as I didn't with FSX or P3D. I by far prefer to use the default camera keys ( numerical 0 to 9 ) that one can easily assign to up to nine different views, or do it through x-camera.

You can map any controller button to any function in the vast default function list available, or specifically for a given aircraft, and one can also save multiple controller profiles to use with specific aircraft or classes of aircraft ( I have one for helis, other for jet airliners and two other for muliprop reciprocating or turbo.

Welcome to XP 11 :-)

We will surely have a lot to do in it in the upcoming months :-)
