    Throttle Controls

    Imagine this, you map your throttle controls so your vehicle goes forward when you push forward on the throttle. Now you finish a map, start another, jump into a vehicle and go to rush outa somewhere cause you just pissed off the enemy, so you crank the throttle forward to move, and WHAM!!! your moving backwards. So by the time you figure out what is wrong, you've either crashed into a wall or run into a ditch. Now....you remap the keys, only to find the next level, they are reversed again. And again. And again.
    Is there a reason for this? I used to think it was only certain maps that did this. But it is sporatic and very irritating. It is like the game has a default setting for throttles and keeps returning my stick to it. Is there any other people that have this problem? If so, what is the fix. I have the latest drivers for my stick which is a "Wingman Extreme."

    Re: Throttle Controls

    This happens to me as well on about 50% of the maps. I'm using an MS Precision 2 joystick. It never happened until one or two BF1942 patches ago. Actually. I think it might have just been the latest patch.

    Not only does my throttle reverse, but my left-right steering controls reverse as well.

    Diplomacy is the art of saying "good doggie" while looking for a bigger stick.

    It did it to me when I used that icon shortcut to eliminate the intro movies and server selection screen.

    I load BF the normal way now and it never happens.

    Re: Throttle Controls

    I've never had this happen to me... and I do not use the short-cut to disable the movies.
