Sharing my Saitek X52 Pro joystick profile for FS2
Hey all, I've been a longtime lurker of the community with basically nothing to contribute but loving everything that you all put out.  Right now I'm having a blast in Blue Planet WIH, and just recently picked up an X52 Pro for this game and VR Elite Dangerous.  I was surprised however to see that there weren't any Freespace profiles for this joystick floating around, so I figured I'd upload my own after a few days of tweaking.  Someone on /r/Freespace suggested I post here too.  Hopefully I save someone a few hours.  :)

Reticle and advanced targeting, management of shields and power, and FSO additions for reverse and directional thrust are all included. Single mode w/ pinky shift.  I tried to keep everything somewhat logical, and did the hat targeting so that you're less likely to accidentally switch targets in the middle of a knife fight.

Let me know what you think!

I have and X52 but had to abandon using it as the stick-twist suddenly developed a massive right-hand yaw that I couldn't compensate for.  I'm making do with a Cyborg EVO that I picked up for $7.99 at Value Village.

Hi,

I'd have love to see how your settings compared to mine because I'm not totally satisfied with my setup. But attachment

Newer download link

To be fair I have no idea why the first attachment was taken down; never got any PMs or anything.  If I'm doing something wrong please let me know.

Update 2018-11-06
: fixed the download link again.  Please be sure to disable clutch mode by going to Start > Run > Joy.cpl [OK] > Select the X52 > Properties > MFD tab > uncheck "enable clutch mode". This way you have a working button for the afterburner.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

"I am one of the best FREDders on Earth" -General Battuta

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<IronWorks> I am useful for FSO stuff again. This is a red-letter day!

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

Perhaps we should specify this when clicking to attach?
