My friend uses an X52 pro and a pair of CH product pedals, and in his conf.ini the [rts_joystick] part looks very complicated (see below). I want to know his joystick and pedals response curves, but, looking at his [rts_joystick] settings, I can't tell which line is for pitch, which is for roll, or which line is for rudder. It really gives me a headache. Can anyone point out the useful lines (his pitch, roll, and rudder settings) from the data below? Many thanks!

His pitch and roll are

X=0 1 4 9 16 25 36 49 64 81 100 0
Y=0 1 4 9 16 25 36 49 64 81 100 0

everything else seems to be set to defaults

I'm afraid that may not be correcthttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. I have
X=0 1 4 9 16 25 36 49 64 81 100 0
Y=0 1 4 9 16 25 36 49 64 81 100 0

as the first two lines in my [rts_joystick] too, but these are definitely not my pitch and roll curves, both of which actually start from above 30.

How the [rts_joystick] section works (click here) (http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Knowledge_Base&op=show&kid=261#008)

The X, Y, Z, RZ, U, V lines are not used. They're a hangover from the original IL2 Sturmovik game and have not applied since about v1.03 or v1.04 of that game when the method used by the game to process this section of conf.ini was changed.

The axes for windows ID#1 controller are 1X, 1Y & 1Z. As the X-52 has more axes than this, this will be the CH Pedals. One of these will be rudder axis and the other two are the axes provided for toe brakes in sims that support seperate toe brakes. Given that most flight controllers for PC use either Z or RZ as rudder and that the other two axes have the same profile as each other, I'd suggest that the 1Z axis is yaw.

The axes for windows ID#2 controller are 1X1, 1Y1, 1Z1, 1RX1, 1RY1, 1RZ1, 1U1, 1V1. These will be the X-52. The 1X1 will be roll, the 1Y1 will be pitch (this matches my X-52). The settings he's using are what most X-52 users recommend.

Which windows ID number which is assigned to each joystick is determined by the name as supplied by the HID controller chip in the device through the USB port to Windows. If I understand correctly how it works, Windows then sorts them alphabetically. CH Pro Pedals comes before Saitek X-52.

Download IL2Sticks, fire it up and it'll show you which is which...

(JoyControl does it too, I think...)

I prefer IL2 Joycontrol

I use CH now but when I had an X-52 I had the best results by setting pitch and roll to 100 across the board. And had pedals set to 10,20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90,100 (curved).

S!
