Question about Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick

1 Answer

Not really a problem rather a question.

I was trying to discover whether I can move a command from the keyboard on to the joystick. For example reverse thrust on the jets is on my keyboard /slash and F2 which is a bit inconvenient I find and would be great on one of the base buttons on the joystick. Is this possible please?

Re: Not really a problem rather a question.

You can a program called autohotkey to program macros to any mouse,keyboard, or joystick button. The program itself can support a joystick with up to 32 buttons you can set macros to. Here is the link to the program. Good luck, Peter

My computer is unresponsive to the joystick; I plugged it into the usb port a message confirmed it was installed and ready for use but nothing happens when I move the joystick in a flight simulator or...

Hello, Here's the solution to your problem, you have to configure the games you're playing for the joystick to work, I believe all games have this option, ussualy in the "configure keyboard and mouse" options menu, click on any funcion you want your joystick to use for each button, and then press the button you want for that function, do that with all buttons of the joystick you want to use, some games need the joystick axis to be configured, just click on left/right and move your joystick in the desired direction, same procedure to up/down, if your joystick has a throttle wheel, do the same for it (if needed).
Procedure is simple and most games has small variants of this procedures I gave you, but they are simple to figure out.
Hope my solution helps, have a nice day :)

You need to edit your system's REGISTRY FILE...UNDER SOFTWARE... DELETE it (of coarse you'll have to use a different keyboard...) Then reboot & then reinstall... :-)

There is a conflict within the settings for your 52. Make sure that you change the "look down" key setting in FSX as think the command your stick is sending is conflicting.

Left joystick sticks

Sounds like the joystick is sticking, the only thing you can do would be to take apart the joystick and with a slightly damp washcloth, and clean off the joystick. Then after you clean all the stickiness off, put the joystick back together and the screws back on and it should react like normal.

Courtesy of Ehow here is the link that gives instructions on how to take apart the controller:

I recently purchased logitec extreme 3d pro joystick and a user manual did not come with it. How do I get one?

Did you purchase it open-box or second-hand? If so, you shouldn't be surprised at the lack of a manual. If you bought it new, it may not have come with one.

I personally have one of these joysticks, but I bought it so long ago that I can't remember if it came with a manual or not.

Either way, there really isn't much need for a manual for this joystick. It doesn't have any very advanced features that would require a manual. It's very simple to use:

  1. Plug it in to an open USB port on your computer.
  2. It should be automatically detected by your operating system. If not, you may have a defective joystick or a defective USB port. Try the joystick in another USB port. If the problem persists, check Logitech's website.
  3. In Windows, click Start->Control Panel->Game Controllers. You should see the joystick listed. Select it and click Properties.
  4. It should open a new window to the "Test" tab, where you can make sure all the buttons work. I suggest you click on the "Settings" tab at the top left.
  5. Click "Calibrate..." and follow the prompts. It'll ask you to keep the joystick centered and press a button on the joystick (use one of the side buttons such as 11 or 12 so that you don't inadvertently move the joystick from center).
  6. Then it'll ask you to move the joystick in complete circles. Do this several times and advance to the next step.
  7. It'll ask you to move the throttle slider up and down. Do this several times and advance to the next step.
  8. It'll ask you to set the "Z-rotation," which is the left/right twist of the handle. Do this several times.
  9. It'll ask you to center it and press a button. See step 5 above.
Now the joystick should be calibrated and ready for use. If you have multiple game controllers, you may want to click the "Advanced" tab back in the Game Controllers window and make sure the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro is selected as the preferred device.

Now start whatever game you want to use it with. You'll probably have to configure what you want the buttons on your joystick to do within the game; follow the instructions that came with the game.

Pretty simple, and like I said, there are no advanced macro functions or anything like that for this joystick.

Game will not recognize the joystick.

If it doesnt work, then try the controller. If the controller works, then just use that. Sometimes the system does not recognize the joystick.

Some joysticks are not compatible with certan games for expmple when i am using flight simulator and change to my combat flight simulator i have to change joysticks

Gears of War for Vista and Logitech Rumblepad 2 directional issues (fwd/rev)....

There is a way to fix it: go into your control panel under Game controllers, select your logitech cordless rumblepad 2 and hit

properties -> settings -> Enable Swap Mode -> close -> ok

Now start Gears of War and go into the options menu under controls for the controller.

Invert Axis = yes
Joystick Mode = Left-handed

This fixes the problem with the joysticks, but there is still a button fix that needs to happen. operations for buttons 2&3 are swapped, same thing with buttons 1&4, 5&7 and 6&8. I don't how to fix this problem yet.

Right Joystick. . .

I had this same problem with my 360 controller (after modding it, but the solution should be the same..) If you pull up on any 360 joystick it will stick the same way.

The quickest fix would be to take some sandpaper on the inside of where the joystick touches the controller shell, sand it down just enough so the joystick is moving smoothly.

More professional ways would be to cut the little piece of metal that sticks out and goes into the joystick. Just a very small amount, too much will make it hard to press the right thumbstick button.
You could also try some old fashioned grease, just a little bit on the inside, nothing noticeable from the outside.

Also make sure the controller is put back together right, I've taken apart many 360 controllers and sometimes joysticks stick when there's a wire in the wrong place and the shell won't close all the way. (The rumble motors particularly).
Hope this helped!
