I have been a subscriber of this site for a long time and was very happy with the "old" format. I am NOT a fan of this new format as it lacks the detail the old format had, especially in seeing pictures of the aircraft selected for downloads, these new pictures lack detail. Search a query also is not satisfactory. I'm not sure I'll continue when my subscription comes up for renewal.
I'm not on my flight sim computer at the moment, but I'm quite sure that under OPTIONS/HOTAS, there is a selection named SENSITIVITY at the top of that left panel. If you haven't already done so, you may want to toy around with the Z Axis settings. May not be your problem but I've improved several issues doing such.
I don't think there's a way to edit my text from the above post, so I'll just put my EDIT here:
I found out how to get into the Thrustmaster calibration menu in my computer, so disregard that part. However, it still didn't fully fix the problem, so achieving that was not so helpful afterall.
I'll start of by saying that this may not be the best location for this topic, but I can't find a forum section for "gaming peripherals", so I'll post here, and the admins can always move it later, if they see fit.
I am having issues with my joystick (brand and model in title), where the z-axis (twist handle) will not turn the rudder smoothly when, slowly twisting the handle. It jitters and stutters as I turn the handle left, and struggles at first to move right-- favoring the left side.
If I make repeated full twists back and forth, it used to negate the instability and fix the problem. However, now that no longer works. I cannot find the program in my computer to re-calibrate the joystick, so I'm not sure how I can fix this problem. Are these joysticks with twist-handles for the z-axis, notorious for calibration and jittering issues?
This was a seemingly more robust joystick than my old Logitech 3D-PRO, which was trouble free for a good 10 years, so I thought it a shoo-in that it would give me less problems. However, so far, I'm a little disappointed after just only a year-and-a-half.
Any suggestions as to how to access the TM calibration menu on my windows 10, or anything else which may fix the problem? Thank you.
