Question about Logitech Rumblepad 2 Game Pad

1 Answer

Left Joystick off

For some reason ( didn't drop it, didn't bang it ) all of a sudden the left joystick on my Rumblepad 2 doesn't work properly. When I go into my Control Panel/Game Controllers/Properties to test out my controler, it shows my left joystick as being off center to the left. When I move the controller to the right, it stops about 2/3's of the way. This matches what happens when I play. I can't turn the character to the right. Is this a problem with the game pad it self? Or is there another solution?
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

I need calibration software for the logitec 3d pro joystick. will not maintain level flight in AP (flight sim ).

this was not originaly my post but i saved it.and it worked for me. HOW TO CALIBRATE THE LOGITECH EXTREME 3D PRO JOYSTICK
I just figured out how to calibrate this joystick. I am using Windows XP. I assume it will work with all Windows operarting systems though.

Go to Control Panel, click on "Game Controllers", or however you get to your joystick settings. Hold down the "Ctrl" (control key) and the "Shift" key together - at the same time, THEN click your mouse on the "Properties". This should take you to a different calibration screen that you would get to without holding the two keys together. IMPORTANT - Click on the "Test" tab first. If you go to the settings tab first, it likely will not work. Without doing anything else after clicking on the "Test" tab, next click on the "Settings" tab. Then click on the "Calibrate" button below. Click "next". Click the thumb button on the left side of the joystick which should bring you to another screen. Then follow the prompts......
* On the "axis calibration", move your joystick in full circles, making sure the "+" symbol moves around the far margins of the square. After a few complete circles, click the "next" button with your mouse.
* On the next screen, click the left button on the joystick again, which should bring you to the next screen. Move the throttle lever back and forth a few times. Then click "next" again.
* On the "Z rotation screen", move the joystick to the left and right (rotate it) a few times. Then click "next" and then "finish" then "ok". Thats it. It should be calibrated now. Hope this helps everyone with problems.

You have to start the game through the Logitec Profiler. Then you have to set up the controls. It's a pain in the **** unless you can find a profile on the internet somewhere.

How can I use joy stick as a mouse? I already have the driver for the joystick but can not chose it in the mouse/pointer properties

Yes you can. All you need is a software. There are many available like Xpadder, Joy2key, Pinnacle game profiler (you have to buy it), and for logitech joysticks, theres the logitech game profiler.
I have a Logitech Rumblepad 2 so I am familiar with Logitech game profiler and I help people by making profiles for their games.

To use a joystick as mouse in Windows, I have read that Xpadder and Pinnacle work. Other profilers dont work. Pinnacle costs money so you can try Xpadder. I dont know anything about that but you can read on the net how to set that up.

Logitech zero calibration reset method

Have you tried using the Logitech calibration uninstall tool that erasers all joystick calibration from windows.

Download and run the Logitech Clear calibration (LWS_CLRC.EXE).

The Clear calibration Utility was developed by Logitech to resolve calibration problems with Logitech digital gaming devices.

NOTE: This utility strips all calibration information in the Windows Registry for all gaming devices. This includes any non-Logitech gaming devices that have been installed.

You may also want to uninstall and reinstall the Joystick Software as well. In some cases, if the calibration issue is within a game, you could try uninstalling and reinstall the game.

Please refer to your game manufacturer for instructions on uninstalling or configuring the game.

This calibration tool specifically mentions the Wingman Joystick, However, it works for ALL Logitech and NON logitech Gaming Joysticks and Gamepads.

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!
