No Joystick-Support for Planes on Early Access

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Unfortunately, Joysticks on PC are still not supported an we are ony a week away from official release.

 

Its not possible to map any button or axis of a Joystick (in my case Logitech Extreme 3D PRO) for the game, when stick controls and button mapping is set to custom.

 

This is a complete deal breaker for people that like to fly. Flying a plane with Keyboard and Mouse is nonsense, way to clunky. Using a Gamepad makes it not better ether, because the movement-area of the thumbsticks is way to small.

 

Why is this for each new Battlefield the same problem? Its known that PC players want to have support for other devices besides Mouse, Keyboard and the Gamepad, coming from the Console-Versions of the game.

 

The support in BF4 was sub-optimal, since HOTAS Systems with more then two devices (Stick and Throttle separate USB-Devices) never really worked, so I brought the Logitech Extreme 3D PRO for it, but absolutely no support in BF1 is just sad.

 

This issue was known since the Beta version and nothing have been done, very disappointing.

 

So official question to DICE: Will BF1 support Joysticks (not Gamepad) on PC when it launches next week, and if not, when will we get support for it?

This has been reported several times online now. It sucks. I have not pre-ordered because of this and now will not be buying the game at all - and I'm a Battlefield enthusiast with mouse mats and posters and all that jazz.

 

My clan/platoon will not be moving forward and buying Battlefield 1 without me nagging them to or getting it for them all as birthday presents - and that's quite a few day one sales of the game and premium that'll now not happen at all.

 

We won't believe any * like "Oh, we'll do it later, no really" because the same was said for Battlefront and that never had decent joystick support provided either.

 

Our only options are third party tools that inject DLLs to convert joystick input to controller input but come on, that kinda stuff can lead to getting false-flagged and banned. Frown

 

Fortunately, it's not like there aren't other games to play. Lots of great ones on sale, with free maps and all too.

 

It's a shame though. We were looking forward to this game and to have features starved out like this... just, no.

Same problem here. Saitek x52

This question has been asked since the beta.

It is time it gets answered.

Will there be a solution in the future or is this what we get.

If they say they will, don't buy it based on a promise of a future change because that's no guarantee at all. Wait til the change comes out before buying it.

Tried manually mapping axises on my warthog to keyboard keys but really feels clunky. Why is there no joystick support ? It looks to me like the game is a port from either xbox or ps4. If the game is for PC then it should have PC options like using joysticks. Not everybody likes console controllers and a definite turn off here as I too like to fly but unfortunately not in this game.

Fix the joystick support. A lot of people wants to enjoy planes in BF1.
