OK, the control input problem is solved:
It seems that the rudder pedals were also bound to pitch and roll axes in the WOFF key/controller mapping progamme, which is odd, because I've always had the same kit and setup. Perhaps something changed during the re-install of Win 10 & WOFF UE.
So in essence the game was receiving pitch and roll inputs from both pedals and joystick. Ungood.
Furthermore I've also realised that the 'W' key is bomb or rocket view, not sights view, so this is also no longer an issue.
However, I used to have a sights view bound to a joystick button, but I can't find the command in the WOFF key mapping tool, nor in the default WOFF key guide.
Wasn't there a way to look down the sights before?
And lastly I still can't get the zoom to work. Before it was mapped to a slider on the Saitek
X52 Pro throttle using the programming software, but I can't get even the default buttons on the keyboard (LSquare & RSquare) to zoom for me now.
Is it perhaps something to do with using the TrackIR TrackClip Pro instead of the Track Clip? Nah, surely not?
