Used your profile, still nothing...



EDIT: Just noticed that it does recognize it and it shows movement when I move the phone on the Windows USB Game controllers, but not in game.

EDIT 2: How dumb of me, I forgot about the game controls, it works now, I'm gonna test it in action

lol. Make sure to play with the deadzones/sensitivty. its important to make sure you can achieve 100% X and 100% Y simultaneously and having low sensitivity on the center. The preset values worked for me but i didn't spend much time on them.

lol it's pretty fun, except that the controls are inverted, I guess clicking on Inverse should set them right. Would take some time to get used to lol. That + freetracknoir = new PR experience.

Pretty sure that on BF2 it binds the + and - according to how you moved it. But inverse will work too.

That is some awesome. I guess even a cheap joystick would be easier to use but you never know, somone might get better results with this thing.

my idea:
1 cheap camera monopod stick and base: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sO3FSYL_hgU



1 cheap cellphone tripod mount case with the mount point at a neutral location : find on Ebay or similar:
Apple iPhone 5S 5c 5 4 Video Camera Recording Tripod Adapter w 1 4 20 Connection | eBay

IS this two or three axis?
X and Y obviously, but does it do any rotation?

Trying to dig out my old monopod, about to buy a fluid ball bearing monopod base and cell phone tripod mount on Ebay to test this. Can and will reuse those for photography anyway.

I've never used a joystick in BF2, I got this far using exact same settings as Patrick:



I guess next step is sorting out the keybinds in PR?

EDIT: Doesn't fix the problem between joystick and seat. I still can't pilot worth a darn.
