I have a 3DConnexion Enterprise Space Mouse and CAD Mouse from the same company on my system for doing Architectural Design Work.
After installing the DEMO I chose the SETTINGS Under JOYSTICK | DEVICE I have the following to choose.
The Default is the CADMOUSE, the next is the SPACEMOUSE ENTERPRISE and the last is VID:0xbeefPID:0x046d. The latter I have no idea what this is.
The SPACEMOUSE ENTERPRISE has what is essentially a 6 axis joystick. I selected it and setup the the movement as follows:
1 AXIS 0 YAW (Rudder) when I turn or twist the Joystick is responds correctly
2 AXIS 1 ROLL (Aileron) when I move it left or right it responds correctly
3 AXIS 2 PITCH (Elevator) when I move it fore and aft it responds correctly
All other I have NONE selected at this time.I created a Default Configuration File for the SPACEMOUSE ENTERPRISE
I then chose DONE and selected NEW FLIGHT. When Select START FLIGHT I receive a DBX that says UNCONFIGURED JOYSTICK or YOKE FOUND referring to my CADMOUSE. I only want to use this a pointing device so I select IGNORE. THe sim Loads and the C172 Cockpit displays on the MAIN Monitor in 3D. BTW I have 4 monitors hooked up with the MAIN one the flight screen in 3D and one of the others as the Instructors Panel. The CAD Mouse works just fine as a mouse so I released the brake and added a bit of power to start moving. When I attempt to rotate the ENTERPRISE Joystick nothing happens. The only thing that response is when I move the joystick forward (Which I set for Pitch forward) the view zooms in. I pull it back as if the climb and the Screen zooms out.
So, Somehow X-plane allowed me to setup the Enterprise to as a joy stick but in the sim it does not function. What can I send you to assess the situation so I can use the awesome tool to fly with.
P.S. Below is a link to the 3D Connexion Enterprise and CAD Mouse I have referred to in the above.
P.S.S. How do I return the settings to simply use the up/down/left/right arrow keys to fly with? Not my preferred choice but better than what I am experiencing so far.
