Speed up if joystick held

Post by KmxSoft »

I have my gamepad nicely set up, where the left joystick emulates the mouse up, down, left and right in slow mode. The right joystick does the same but moves the cursor much faster.

What I would like to do is configure a joystick to double its speed if it is held for more than one second, so that it starts nice and slow and then speeds up if the user is trying to move a fair distance. It looks to me that this must be possible with xpadder, but I'm living in the land of confusion right now with respect to things like multi-step hold/release zones.

Advice on what I need to do for configuring a mouse move in any one direction would be very welcome - I'm sure that once I can see how to do it for one direction then copying the technique to other directions will be very simple.

I'm in the same boat, I'm looking to out zoom with my mouse through my Dpad for when looking at the game map, for the life of me I cannot figure it out. What combinations do I need to use? I'm already using combinations so the 'down on the dpad button' sheathes weapons at a tap and at a hold out zoom. what do I do to speed the out zoom up?? sorry for forum piggybacking!

Do you zoom with the mouse wheel of really with the mouse movement?

It's not possible to set up different mouse emulation speeds on the same stick direction depending on how long it was held. It would be a possibility to pulse the mouse movement in the first second using hold zones like that:

But disadvantages are that it is pretty time consuming to setup (even by using notepad) and that not only halves the speed but also the polling rate (or rather it uses only the half of it), so the mouse movement could become jerky (especially at higher speeds). Mouse smoothing in game could solve that issue, but may also screw up the speed difference.
