Okay so I tried to do some research on this before posting and all I can really find is threads of people 'talking' about how it doesn't work well or how they don't like it but I can't find any direct information to exactly 'what it is."
Can anyone explain to me what analogue controls are? From my experiences can I benefit from this? My current controllers I use are:
Head Tracking: TrackIR 5 for head-tracking.
Controller for Driving: Razer Onza Tournament Edition Xbox 360 controller for driving vehicles, it feels a bit better than the mouse and keyboard and offers force feedback.
Thrust-master T-Flight Hotas X flight simulator joystick for helicopters and jets. (Still trying to setup perfectly.)
Keyboard + mouse for on foot infantry operations ect.
So currently from my experiences, I set the 360 controller to a default customization layout they had in the game. It allows all the buttons to be setup without me having to adjust them, but also locks them down so I cannot change them. Honestly this is okay with me as I can drive fine with TrackIr 5 to look around.
The flight simulator stick I use comes with a side thrust hand thing. So I guess you can decrease thrust and increase thrust. I currently just used the increase and decrease thrust and not the analogue controls section as I don't know what they are for.
When I am in a helicopter for example, and my thrust pad is centered, it in fact keeps the heli centered. When I press the thrust up a bit, about 1/4 I begin to climb in altitude very slowly and can center out moving my hand pad back to center. Also if I force the thrust pad all the way forward (4/4) I climb in altitude very quickly and mimicks the Q key.
What is the point of analogue controls and why do I need them?
