configure joytokey
with a specific Joytokey profile ( download joytokey v5.9) :

first of all :

- set in joytokey option for analogic axes : Theresold for input set to 60% ( it gives a large neutral deadzone )

then :

for throttle :
defaut keys are z ans s
so map the z key to "up joystick axe action" and set a repeat fonction ( repeat after 2000ms one time every 2s )
do the same for the s key to "down joystick axe action "
do the same for Shift up and down ( a and q key )


( c , d and e keys )
*****UPDATED FOR BRAKE ******
now,your joystick throotle axe will have release / Lap / Apply on the same axe :
to do so use "keyboard2" settings and set the option press = key C and release is key d (LAP)
do the same thing for press = Key E on opposite side of axe and release is key d (LAP )

in that way axes full left = C middle = D(LAP) full Right = E




done !
and a real pleasure to throttle down and gear up/down ... in a very natural way.


PM those tutorial can be used also for other railsims.

Do you have an experience with the default steam client controller setup? I'd like to have repeating commands like you did here but I'm having trouble getting it to work.

Hi, I would like to use your suggestions for Train Sim World but do not know what the keyboard commands are in Diesel Railcar. Throttle & Brake are A & D. Indirect brake is ' for increase and ; for decrease. I'm using a Saitek X52 pro joystick

Great guide implicit A. This works really well with an Xbox360 wired controller, I have full control of the throttle, gear and brake on the two thumbsticks...works like a charm!
