chained vehicle(tank),boats are can't be steered by car left,right (analog)
New, WishlistPublic


I use xbox pad for steering vehicles.
Car left,right are strange for pad,so I'm mapping analog stick for car left,right(analog),but some of vehicles(tank,boat) are can't be steered,but they are working well on car left,right.

This is an important issue, because when you map both controls (standard left+right AND analog left+right) to the gamepad, it will make the steering of cars really clunky, since the inputs interfere with each other.

So at the moment, you can either:
-use your gamepad for cars only (which would be a shame, because the gamepad was made for controlling vehicles in ArmA)
-or don't use analog steering at all (but it works so much better!)
-or change your configuration every time you use another vehicle (nope!)

helio//but not using analog steering is strange at high speed,really hard to steer.BI should fix it

I know, I share your opinion.
I really prefer the analog steering, too! So I hope they can fix it soon.

This is a bit pants tbh. I thought I was going mad and not mapping things correctly for a while.

Edit: The Marshal works fine where as the Slammer does not. It must be just specific vehicles that don't work rather than cars v. armor.

It's wheels vs chains / naval. :)

Oh right that makes sense. Thanks. Look on the bright side stuff like this is making me squeeze even more value from arma2.

By chains you mean tracks Helio? :-)

joostSidy//yeah,kind of that

Yes, please fix this. I am using HOTAS controls for flying and driving whenever possible. All wheeled vehicles steer fine with analog controllers using car left/right analog. Arma 2 worked fine for wheels or tracks, but Arma 3 treats them differently. Apparently boats, too, though I hadn't tried them yet. Arma 3 doesn't allow analog steering of tracked vehicles with car left/right analog. Presently I have to use mouse and keyboard - car left/right with keyboard and care more left/right with mouse.
