Love the game, but hate one thing

Postby Jimmpi » Tue Nov 07, 2006 6:54 pm

I really love the game.except one thing. How you aim in the game.
I haved tryed everything I can come up whit but still have one problem. I cant rotetd the aim right..Only left. This sucks. I sometimes haved to rotate a whole "lap" just to get the aim where i want..But I'm usally dead by that time.

I hope you understand what i mean. How have you set up the controlls????

Hmm, I cannot remember how the contols are set since Im not with my own computer, but have you tried to reset the controls to default or something? This really sounds strange. Im sure the frozenbyte will help, they are quite active here (wich is nice).

Are you playing with keyboard + mouse? Or with a gamepad? If it's keyboard + mouse then I'm sure we can figure out what's wrong. With gamepad it's a bit harder but who knows, maybe we can figure out that too. Let me know.

Hmm, checked my controll-setting under option in the game.
Under "joystick Axis" I have
Axis-X: Axis Throttle
Axis-Y: Axis Rudder

what do you people have?

Rumblepad 2? Ok I think we can solve this. We have those in the office and they're excellent, so I'll reply back in a few hours once I've had a chance to test it a bit.

Can you move with the left thumbstick normally? So it's only the right thumbstick that's causing problems...

Axis Throttle and Axis Rudder are the correct axises for Rumblepad 2, just tested myself.

Can you check that everything is ok in Windows's Control Panel - Game Controllers? See that you can move all the axises etc... perhaps even try calibrating the whole thing (in the Settings tab). Let me know what happens.

Also make sure that no other controls are mapped to the rudder axis (they could interfere somehow). Check that your Options menu looks similar to this:
