my throttle keeps 'shaking'.. that is, if i set it to 50%, i will always get 48% 49% 51% 52%... around there. It will shake between those numbers..

this problem shuts off the autopilot/hover system for my chopper.. and i don't think there's really a way to fix the throttle itself.. is there a way to fix the game (LB2) to not notice the shaking? Because right now i'm just using the keyboard throttle.. which isn't nearly as fun :P

Hi,

Although it's not the same problem you do have, there is a similarity at this link ( http://www.longbow.co.uk/lb2/faq.html#collective ). Maybe your Throttle is spiking?

My $ 0.02.

Enfo.

Make sure you have "Poll With Interupts" unchecked in:

CONTROL PANEL -> GAME CONTROLLERS

(It's on the advanced TAB)

If the box is clear then it would help to clean your throttle pot. Use some "Contact Cleaner" available from specialist electrical stores (Electrolube EML Contact Cleaner Lubricant is good). Spay into the pot and work it in. That stuff is used to clean volume controls to stop them from crackling (spiking).
