Right Analog Stick - Razer Onza Controller
Greetings everyone. I stumbled upon this software last night after the rude awakening that Mass Effect 3 only supported keyboard and mouse.
I was extremely impressed at how thorough and "put together" the software is while setting up your controls. And the fact that you can download a game profile already set up for your game, then simply load it into the software....amazing....
However I have come across 1 issue.
When playing, the right analog stick will be centered (Im not moving it myself), yet the camera keeps moving down (as if I were pressing down).
I went in to the calibration settings and chose to automatically calibrate (I forget the correct label as I'm on my cell phone at work right now). I noticed that if I choose the automatic option a second time, it will go to completely different settings, and again each time I click it (each one with the same results-camera goes down).
I tried increasing the dead center point (not the correct term) above the requested settings and the camera doesn't force itself down, but using the analog stick with this setting causes a lag. It takes a moment before the controller registers the command.
Any thoughts as to any other settings I can try?
The in-game controls are set to default.
I can't recall the ME3 profile I downloaded, but I will try another one tonight and see if the same problem arises.
Thanks in advance for any assistance. And my apologies for the long post. I like to be as thorough as I can.
--I do have one additional question. This isn't the correct forum, but the correct forum is flooded with threads that would share the same title as my question. As far as the 30 day trial, is that thirty days from the day installed, or 30 days of actual usage? I ask because I would like to get as much "trial" as I can with multiple games to determine if I would like to purchase the full version.
It sounds like a deadzone problem that shouldn't be happening. If you go to control Panel>Game Controller>Properties>Settings in windows and reset the calibration to default, and also rest calibration in PGP to default then see if the issue still persit's. The Trial works on a basis of 30 days since the sofware is installed.
thanks for the quick reply. unfortunately the problem still persists even after restoring the device back to default.
also after clicking play from the main window, and clicking OK on the mouse smoothing window, the problem happens with my mouse...although at this point I'm able to use the right stick as my mouse, so it could just be the same issue. this happens with all the settings of mouse smoothing.
any thoughts on where to go from here?
thanks again for the help.
OK please have a look at the three pictures posted and see if you have your device setup in PGP the same way.
The first pic is in Preferences the second is from Edit Configurations > Tool Box (Check the red Arrow). The third is for setup joystick default settings (Check the red Arrows).
wow. you guys respond quickly.
unfortunately (for me ), after adjusting settings and uninstalling/reinstalling drivers for a few hours, I discovered the issue is with the controller itself. I decided to reinstall a known working game and had the same issue. Google then confirmed that many others with this controller have the same problem.
so after another hour or so of disassembling and working on the controller, I got it to work properly. the issue came back after an hour of playing (but not as severe), but at least I managed to find the source of the issue and get it working temporarily.
I'll be purchasing a new controller on my way home and I'll make certain to set the controller up with the screenshots you've provided.
I'll report back here with my results.
thanks again to both of you for your time and assistance. it is greatly appreciated.
That makes sense I have had similar isuues in the past, but a faulty Razer Onza, Ouch! For me what has fixed physical issues with controllers for me is doing what you did (taking it apart and putting it back together agian), the best trick is just to make sure everything is securely in place and to apply extra pressure when needed. I would play about with it a bit as the conroller is broken anyway and it's a good and expensive pad (assuming your warrenty is already void).
yeah, I'll definitely fiddle with it and see if I can get it to work. id try and return it, but after my recent move, i dont feel like sifting through all those boxes. plus i love tearing apart hardware to see what makes it tick.
I plan on buying another controller on my way home tonight just to be safe. I know my old (2006-ish) Xbox controllers don't work in my PC.
any recommendations? does one specific controller work better than another?
My recommendation is to go the way of a wired Microsoft X360 Controller.
Reason is all new PC games that are made using controllers are made for the Microsoft X360 Controller.
Oh and the wireless Microsoft X360 tend to be very troublesome at times, but not the wired.
It has built in support for Windows XP, Vista & 7. No problems to get outdated drivers etc. I can just go on but I think this will suffice.
As long as you are looking to purchase a new controller for a PC I'll highly recommend you not to go the way of a PS 3 controller. Its problem after problem you'll encounter.
The PS3 Controller is probably better on PC all round than the 360 Controller or at least in terms of compatibility it just has issues working with PGP, the work around is to use it in 360 Mode on MiJ all the time when needing to use it with PGP. But The PS3 Controller with MiJ can do pretty much everything teh 360 one can and more.
thanks for the feedback, guys.
I ended up going with the 360 controller. i was unaware that you could use a ps3 controller...plus I assumed I'd be better off plugging a Microsoft product in to windows than anything else.
everything seems to be working properly now.
I do notice a little lag when trying to move the camera diagonally though. up and down and left and right are very responsive, but when trying to move the camera diagonally, it moves slowly. is this normal?
