MP4 Inverting Throttle Axis?

Post by McSlash » 10 May 2017, 05:30

Some of you might remember me from the old TMUF Forums, been lurking here awhile, now I have an issue.
Just did the MP4 Update (the game was running fine before), and my throttle axis have flipped. I use the Saitek X52 Pro, and now what was Stop is Go Very Fast, and what was Go Very Fast is Stop.
Seems to me there used to be a box you could check for inverting Joystick axis, but I can not find it anywhere.
Anybody got anything?
Also, with Maniaplanet and Windows 10, I had to open configure\advanced\compatibility and checkbox emulate then save and open emulate in the splash screen to have a working cursor in the game. Now that works some times and not others, that is, I have a cursor one time then next time I open the game I don't.
Any suggestions or advice appreciated.

Okay, I'm sure you are all overloaded at the moment, but for me, the MP4 update has made the game not worth playing. I would like to, there seem to be a number of nice additions to the game.
As it is, each time I open the game, I must open configure from the splash screen, open advanced, and open compatibility. Then I must check the emulation box, and then UNCHECK IT, save, save the advance window, save the configure window and then choose emulation from the splash screen to have a working cursor in the game.
That is not a typo, I must uncheck emulation in the compatibility window, then choose emulation in the splash screen to have a cursor. If that isn't the sign of a bug, I guess I don't understand bugs.
And can you imagine the amount of trial and error guessing that work around took?
Of course, all that is to NO AVAIL, because now my SAITEK X52PRO, which has worked fine in TMN, TMUF, & VSK4 as well as IL2 Sturmovik and War Thunder, and STILL DOES, and did in Maniaplanet until this update, has now reversed the throttle axis, making the game unplayable.
Please do not suggest I just learn to use the reversed axis, contrary to how I would use the tool in every other game (most of which have a "invert axis" option), and please don't tell me to use the keyboard keys. I play games that are COMPATIBLE with this stick.
As an 11 year player I would appreciate at least an acknowledgement that these issues are being looked into.
Thank You.

Another Download, now can't get a cursor to function at all, throttle axis still reversed. Do devs even look at this forum?
What a Drag, another game wrecked by upgrades.
