Hello,

I'm making a custom input map for a Logitech Attack 3 (flight stick kind of controller) using the RoR Input Mapping Tool.

I used the "AIRPLANE_THROTTLE_AXIS" input event and chose "JoystickAxis" input type, for the physical slider on the controller. Works fine in the test screen of the tool, but does nothing when in game.

I don't think I can use "JoystickSlider" input type, because in RoR.log where it detects the controller, it says there are 0 sliders and 3 axes meaning my "slider" is not actually a slider.

Any help would be appreciated, it's already a lot of fun to fly with a stick and having a working throttle would complete the experience.

Thank you.

I did some testing, and..

I can use the controller's physical throttle slider if I assign it to anything else (e.g. AIRPLANE_STEER_LEFT) as a JoystickAxis and it works fine even in game.
I tried using another axis from the controller as the throttle axis. That doesn't work either, at all.

I also tried all the planes and "AIRPLANE_THROTTLE_AXIS" doesn't work with any of them, leading me to believe that either
a) none of the planes I've tried support this form of throttle control
b) AIRPLANE_THROTTLE_AXIS despite its name only works with JoystickSlider input type, of which RoR says I have none (my physical throttle slider is detected as an axis)
c) it's a bug

Any input on this would be appreciated, as I'm not sure how to proceed. Thank you
