Summary0002661: Bank axis does not work with Rx, Ry, Rz
DescriptionWhen mapped to the Rx, Ry, or Rz axis, the Bank control does not function (i.e. any position of the joystick will not roll the craft).
Steps To ReproduceNote: You must have a controller that has an Rx, Ry, or Rz axis to begin with, or have controller drivers/software that can reconfigure it's axiis.

1. Configure your controller to have one or all of the R axiis
2. Run FSO
3. Open Options, and map the R axis you just configured your controller to have
4. Close Options, and Open the Tech Room
5. Select a mission from the Mission Simulator and run it (I suggest one of the training missions)
6. Try to bank in mission

Probably a derp:

3.6.14 RC6 has the same issue


iss_mneur (developer)

Based on the code in joy_get_pos (joy.cpp:940) it appears only 4 axis are actually used at any one time by FSO even if 6 are supported.

It also doesn't matter if it's a DirectInput device or not, (joy.cpp::1246).

So, I guess it's safe to say that joy.cpp has potential for updates. :)

I know, it's an old one, but is this still an issue? I tried it with my Joypad and it works perfectly (at least when using the Rx axis).

From emkay's report, this must have been fixed at some point.
