~S~ All,

I have a Microsoft Sidewinder Precision 2 (Non Force Feedback) and for the longest time I had the Pitch, Roll & Yaw settings done at increments of 10:

10 / 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 / 100
Deadband set all the way to the left
Filtering set all the way to the left

A friend of mine recommended that I try his settings (which I did) but wasn't sure if I noticed much of a difference?

Are settings done based on the joystick one may use or based on other factors, and how can I determine what is best for me to use?

I apologize if this is somewhat of a vague or naive question, but I am looking for some advice on what my options might be.

Thank you for your responses. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Joystick settings will depend on what stick(s) you use, what plane(s) you fly and your personal preference. Stick settings can make a big difference in combat.
I use a Microsoft Forcefeedback Pro 2 (USB) with forceedback set to maximum. Apart from putting in the missing 0 in the conf.ini file after applying the 4.02m patch I've had to apply a bit of filtering, but still no deadband.
There is only one way of finding out what works for you: make profiles and test them.
If you want to test different stick setups the easiest way is to make profiles with IL-2 Sensitivity Tool which you can download here:

i've got the same stick and i use it in conjunction with my saitek x52. the settings i use are:

pitch: 80 85 87 90 93 95 100 100 100
roll: same as above
yaw: all 100's

i used to fly with all 100's but like this setting better. give it a try, bet you'll like the feel...http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
