Settings up Thrustmaster Joystick (Configuration)

  • In the software at the top select NEW CONFIGURATION
  • Input your preferred Name and Location. Choose the ADVANCED type.
  • Select your Thrustmaster joystick to include in the profile.
  • Set the JOYX and JOYY axis to DX_XROT_AXIS and DX_YROT_AXIS respectively.
  • The reason for this is that the hard Deadzones in-game, don’t apply to rotational axis values.

How to Fix POV Hat Switch

  • For some reason, the POV hat switch (usually used for changing power management in-game) doesn’t work by default
  • You will notice this once you make a custom config in the TARGET software.
  • To fix this, just bind the up, down, left, right switch directions manually.
  • Save and run your config, then remap the pitch, yaw, and roll axis in-game
  • Doing these will ensure that there are no Deadzone issues anymore!

      I think some software is interfering with the TARGET UI script. Try to turn off antivirus and try again. Or check their forum for this particular issue. We have not run into this error so far.
