Yeahp. A weird business (pun intended) that was.....

I had a yoke reserved during the pre-order period, and then canceled because it was taking longer than I hoped, and I was getting worried. Then at least most of those first batch got theirs. I ended up getting one used, and did an SW hack, and using joytokey I think I got it all working fine. (I ran out of button assignments, though, and bought an AKI to supplement, eventually to phase out the SW with...just haven't done it. I went the whole way initially, buying the plug that connects to the yoke harness, connecting the female side to the SW, because I didn't want to cut the original plug off.)

Except the judder. Guess what? You have to initially calibrate the yoke. On the link below (I simply googled 'star wars yoke calibration') it says it's auto-calibrating, then goes on to say how you can. I had to. Not perfect, but much better. You might have to do it in every yoke game, for example I use it Spy Hunter and Outrun, and Crossbow.


The Star Wars yoke controller is auto calibrating. If you move the cross hair to all 4 corners of the screen, the game does a pretty good job of determining where the center is. In addition to this auto calibration, Star Wars has a diagnostic screen that shows how the potentiometers are reading the controller's position.
