I have found using the keyboard for EVAing a bit difficult because it is hard to strafe in a lot of directions. I want to eva strafe like I dogfighting in fighter. With https://www.reddit.com/user/DJChosen help from reddit, I was able to get my pedals to control two eva strafe axis. You can't directly keybind a joystick to EVA movement even using xml files.
How to do this:
You go to http://www.x360ce.com/ and download it for 64-bit games. http://www.x360ce.com/Files/x360ce_x64.zip. Extract the file, It will go through and create a controller for each joystick (windows game controller). New Device Detected should pop up and just hit next. I have mfg crosswinds that come up as Controller 1. I have bound strafe up/down and left/right to the left thumb stick see image.
I have strafe left/right bound to twist on my pedals/ My toe breaks are one axis using MFG's software. My right toe brake strafes up, and my left toe brake strafes down. Next, you go to the 2nd row/ advanced button, device section, and device sub type. Set Device to Gamepad.
Next go to game settings in the 1st row. Make sure you have 64-bit v 9.1 and 64-bit v 1.3 as XInput Files and the details of the image are the same.
Then copy the .dll files to the right game directory.
C:\Program Files\Cloud Imperium Games\StarCitizen\Public\Bin64
You will then need to use an xml keybind. This makes the gamepad left thumb stick the right strafe axis and clears out some of the commands that are normally bound to the left thumb stick.
Image below is most of the xml commands
Put the xml file in this directory
C:\Program Files\Cloud Imperium Games\StarCitizen\Public\USER\Controls\Mappings
In Star Citizen open the console (~) and type pp_rebindkeys eva_pedal_rebind_2.5.xml
In the end, you can't use a gamepad with this setup. I am sure there is a way to do it and be able to use your gamepad probably. I you find out how to do that then put it below.

Anyone use T.A.R.G.E.T. for the Thustmaster HOTAS Warthog? I can't get my throttles to work correctly.By Th3 Warm0ng3r
I just got myself a Warthog and am extremely excited! But it seems I can't get the system to work right. When I run their T.A.R.G.E.T. system with the keybindings that I set up my throttle goes from 0 to 100 and that's it, no backing down to 0 even. I would like to have the set up with at least increments of 5 with full stop at the throttle's idle position. Can anyone help me?
I see that you can bind multiple functions to a single key, but can't figure out how to bind multiple keys to a function. Basically, I'm trying to make "throttle up" to be both the 'W' key and my left mouse button. Is that possible right now? I see I can bind it to other things, like buttons on my joystick, but it looks like I can't do it since keyboard/mouse is on one tab and I don't see any secondary keybind for the menu items.
