Saitek X52 not supported?
This Auto setup for controllers and joysticks is really harsh. While my xbox 360 controller works alright I would much rather use my X52 because I feel it has more control in most flight games than the xbox 360 controller. Has anyone got there X52 to work? Will Ego fix this so people can enjoy there controllers? I refuse to play Rebirth intill this is fixed otherwise I want my money back.

I have an X-52 and will try to make it work, but currently, my *mouse* doesn't work in this game ... gotta track down a fix for that first. :(

You can make it work but it sucks terribly

I'm using X52Pro to fly in space and keyboard+mouse to move on platforms.

The game assumes that rotaries are left gamepad stick, so either you have to unassign them or keep them in "middle" position (there is a bump there).
Other than that, I wanted to assign Throttle hat to strafing, but the game doesn't see it, so it's only possible in SST.
I also assigned black pov hat to switch weapons/missiles.

Actions (like "Dock") I activate using mouse, I don't think it's possible to use joystick for that right now (we'll have to wait for a patch)

They must have known that people where going to want to use their x52's to play this game, what made them think that every one would use a gamepad?

Better question: What made them think that anyone would use a gamepad? :)

Hahah right!

If I don't physically unplug the X-52, my mouse doesn't work. But if I do, it does. I'm willing to just let this get patched, but, man ... pushing that throttle forward really contributes to immersion, so I hope this gets sorted out sooner rather than later.

I agree dan, I bought my x52 just for this game and War Thunder.

The mouse bug will undoubtedly get patched, and it's not just the Saitek, it's any controller, afaik (including joysticks).

here's a semi fix in this thread that allows the x52 to do most all of what the mouse does

@SilentDan - you have to put your throttle into "stop" position (25 on throttle) and both rotaries into 50%, mouse will work fine then

Oh no! I have this joystick, an av8r and (for my sins!) a ps2 gamepad I use to play space games, but tend to switch between stick/mouse in-game depending on what else I'm doing.

When the game is working correctly, does it prevent mouse and joystick being used interchangeably in the same session?

I'm playing with joystick and mouse at the same time, it works fine. You just have to do the things I said in previous post.

Sorry, in uncharacteristic panic I didn't read properly. Thank you. :)

I play with X52 and got no probs. The standard configuration is crappy from hell. After reconfiguration of all buttons and axis everything works fine for me. Only issue i got is the fact that there is no option to configure the deadzones. Here i would like to adjust a bit. Please EGO bring som option for it. Lastly i´m happy with my X52.
