Jib sheets w/ game controller

Jib sheets w/ game controller

Postby JohnnyJupiter » Tue 30 Nov 2010 - 15:43


I'm using a Logitech rumblepad game controller:

which in general works great. I'm having one issue with the jib sheets that I'm hoping someone can help with: under manual control (no automaton engaged), I can raise and lower the jib by selecting the proper group using buttons and the joystick:

but when I selected either jib trim sheet (port or starboard):

I get no response from the joystick. I might have succeeded once or twice getting the jib sheets to work, but not consistently.

I've confirmed my game controller is configured properly. If I can use the joystick to raise and lower the jib, that tells me the joystick input is being seen by Sail Simulator. Any ideas?

Help much appreciated! Thnx.
