Alright, yesterday i´ve had a brave moment and plugged up my wheel+pedals together with my xbox pad, normally i only have one plugged in at a time for no real reason other than me being ... weird. The thing is that i ran into problems immediatly and almost managed to post a cry for help about it here, if the forums didn´t crap out just when i finished writing it up. *fast forward*
Today i had a bright moment and thought it might be a controller setting, e.g. "combined pedals" - and i was right with it. As soon as combined pedals are deactivated TKOH_CP will hate you. Now this might not be a problem for most users, as combined pedals is activated by standard (i think) and most wheel users being aware of this setting and that it can cause troubles if used wrong.
But i think it should work with both ways to keep user frustration low, and spare racing gamers the hassle of switching it around everytime they want to play a racing sim.
For reference, here´s the vague description of what was going wrong from yesterdays not posted posting: Spoiler:
#1 pushing the left pedal down arma recognizes the signal, puts a "logitech bla z+ axis" in the control scheme - but as soon as i lift my foot off the pedal it adds another "logitech bla z- axis" entry which i find most confusing
#2 doing the same for the right pedal adds to the confusion, because whenever one of the pedals is already assigned, it´ll put the same (wrong) axis entry into the other one aswell - resulting in a big red "double define" which of course doesn´t work too well
#3 the ingame name for my left pedal (z axis) is always "right pedal" oO
Tried bypassing these by having only one + or - way defined per pedal, or deleting the doubled entrys by hand, but they would just come back, and nothing really worked at all.
The funny observation i made was that flying with the doubled entrys had the helo perfectly stablized in a hover (flying start), my first thought was that auto trim must be on but it wasn´t.
To make a long story short: If you are having ploblems setting up your wheel pedals, make sure to have the "Combined Pedals" setting ticked, otherwise you´ll run into a wall.
And if you don´t want to amend your controller settings each time before you´re going to play TKOH or a serious racing game, speak now, as i think there´s still room for this getting fixed before release!
