Another setup. JoyPadSetup.exe. Usually it is on desktop. There you can chose from different gamepads or manually assign different functions for each button or combinations. Check the JoyPad user manual pdf for more information.

127 is the correct position. Should work fine.

You said that the incremental jogging is working... The only difference between incremental and continuous is the use of the 5, 6, 7 and 8 buttons. 5 and/or 6 for continuous and 7 and/or 8 for incremental. Check in the plugin setup page is everything is set correctly. Usually there is a desktop shortcut for the plugin settings page.

I can switch between Step and Continuous and in step it does what it should, and directions are correct, as configured in Plugin Config. But for the other mode, it is like the moving knob for X Y Z motion is not working.
Is there something you think i could be doing wrong?
Hi! Try to deactivate the "single axis movement" in the JoyPad config in Mach3 (Config Menu > Config Plugins > JoyPad > CONFIG). If this way will work, then your controller knobs are not resting in the exact center all the time.

Also, I was wondering if there are flyout tool tips for the buttons?  I understand I will have to learn them, but it is kinda slow having to resort to the manual for each button until I learn them.

Sadly the Mach3 software does not support description boxes at all. I think it is a programming issue.

I arranged the buttons descriptions and probing to fit on two A4 pages. I have it printed and laying around to be at hand when needed. I attach it here, maybe you and/or other users will find it useful.

Thank you for your fast reply.

As I'm not into gaming, the first and only game played with a gamepad being Mach3, I didn't knew such terms as 'deadzone'.

Now I have already tried a bunch of software/tweaks with no success. The deadzone setting works perfect inside the respective software but not in windows gamepad test or Mach3.

Has anyone managed to setup the deadzone in winXP?

I see that many games have deadzone setting... how hard it is to implement a deadzone setting in the plugin? Or is it impossible?



Hello, I am using this wonderful plugin for some time and never had any issue with it. But as my gamepads worn out there is one annoying thing. In single axis jogging, if one joystick is not perfectly centered, the movement of the other axis is restricted. Is there any workaround for this situation? Something like setting up a percentage of the movement from center to be regarded as 'zero'.

My apologises if this situation has been discussed before in this thread but I couldn't find it in my quick search.

I think it's time to try a fresh install.

I changed the Y motor velocity to 1/3 and the soft limits start working. But no I found that the manual g-code input behaves very strange. Entering G0 and G1 commands in both directions, the axis is moving 'mostly' in the + direction by an irregular amount. But the jogging and g-code files are running perfect. This is too much for me ... I will try with a fresh install.

I'm not sure when this started but recently I also had problems with homing. Sometimes when homing I got the "Limit Switch Triggered" and the Reset with active limit switch (automatic override) would not work every time. But this issues have gone by changing the Debounce Interval to 500.

Hello Gerry. Now I was thinking to change back to only the default macros. Is this worth trying?

Unfortunately I was never able to correct this (using Windows XP and Mach3 2010 Screenset) so I switched them off.

This is interesting as I also have the Mach3 2010 Screenset.

Now I switched to the default screenset but the strange behaviour is still there.
