Hey, i'm using
MapKey(&Joystick, S4, EXEC("MapAxis(&Throttle, SCX, DX_SLIDER_AXIS, AXIS_NORMAL, MAP_RELATIVE);
SetSCurve(&Throttle, SCX, 0, 10, 0, 4, -10);
SetSCurve(&Throttle, SCY, 0, 10, 0, 4, -10);")
MapKeyR(&Joystick, S4, EXEC("MapAxis(&Throttle, SCX, DX_XROT_AXIS, AXIS_NORMAL, MAP_ABSOLUTE);
SetSCurve(&Throttle, SCX, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0);
SetSCurve(&Throttle, SCY, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0);")
to toggle between ABSOLUTE mapped axis for the cursors, etc. and RELATIVE mapped axis for view control. My problem is this: i am not able to force the RELATIVE mapped axis to center, effectively centering the view.

Does someone know how center an relative mapped axis?

Thanks in advance,

Nevermind, wrote my own centering function, works like a charm:

int CenterAxis(alias o, int x, int index)
if(!GetAxisData(&o, x)) return 0;
DXSetAxis(index, 0);
axdata.relpos = 0;
MapKey(&Throttle, SC, CHAIN(EXEC("CenterAxis(&Throttle, SCX, DX_SLIDER_AXIS);"), EXEC("CenterAxis(&Throttle, SCY, DX_THROTTLE_AXIS);")));
