Re: New Gamepad Controller Needed/Wanted ??

Darryl Ellis


Let me expound further on the second joystick issue.

I use it to control my focus controller, or at least I want to.  So far, I am only able to use the second joystick to cycle through the preset speeds with an up and down motion.  I want to be able to control the in and out direction with a left/right motion.  It just would seem more natural.  I have not been able to get the joystick to calibrate in the left/right direction but only up and down.

I have a newer model game controller which is supposed to be directly compatible with Windows 10 PCs via bluetooth.  However, I had this same issue with an older model that required a usb dongle and worked via wifi.  

Otherwise, I believe ASCOMPAD works pretty well.  I do wish it would work continuously and consistently in the background.  Also, if I'm not careful, I can end up opening more than one instance of the program because I don't see it.  Finally, I have to close it using Task Manager because it does not seem to have a closure function, at least not one that I am aware of.

Thanks again for considering doing this.
