Ok, if anyone is having the trouble I had with the throttle on the joystick, I know a way around it.

While I do not know how to remedy the problem itself, the throttle in the state that it is in, is simply unplayable. Therefor, the way around this, is to still use the same joystick config I had (Or whatever suits your joystick) but simply install Privateer with support for just JOYSTICK, not Joystick with throttle. This removes the use of throttle, and removes the errors which come with it.

Hope it helps some people out there. And Thomas, thanks so much for this gift! :)

Thanks a lot Oigres, after a bit of tenacity I finally achieved my joystick central calibration with:

JoyOn 0
ThrottleOn 0
Joy 1
Joy Dead 0.100000
Joy cx 120
Joy cy 120
Joy lx 0
Joy ly 0
Joy rx 240
Joy ry 240

However, now I have a new problem. For some reason, if I boost the throttle, it doesn't stop. It keeps going and going, achieving speeds far greater than 6000+

Any ideas?

hi Tempest, actually is very easy choose a value to the cx and cy lets say u try something like what i have posted, now when u test it if the joy goes the the left side u are over the desired value so try a lower number, if it goes to the right then u are under the value and need to try a higher number, i would say u start with high numbers like 5000 to both values, see to were the joystick is moving, and try higer or lower numbers, each time u get closer to the "center" the spining gets slower and slower untill it stops. the rx and ry values u get by multiplying the cx and cy values by 2 (cx*2=rx)for the cy values do the same, it takes some time becouse u have to close and stat priv2 each time but it works :)

and one i tell ya, my joystick doesnt moves a mm to any side :D

Hey Oigres. I'm curious to know how you discovered those values. Were they random fiddlings which you eventually came across?

I tried it with my joystick, but it didn't seem to help. unfortunately, I still am unable to find the correct manual values :(

Hello, Oigres!

Try this:

1.) Start => Run => "dxdiag" (without the quotes)

2.) Click on the "Sound" tab

3.) Disable Hardware Acceleration (or try another setting than the current...)

Hope this helps.

Hi there!

i've a Saitek Cyborg 3D joystick and get the same problem by pressing [alt]+[o] (memory could not be read bla bla).

I'm running Windows 2000.

When i configure the joystick manually within the dark.cfg it doesn't crash and i could flight if the joystick would be calibrated. (flying circles and circles and circles and...)

Can someone help, or tell me wich values to set in the dark.cfg?

I've got no idea...

greetings from germany!
