I'd like to operate my joystick as a zero-order pointer. I have a CH fighterstick and have done som mms scripting in CH Manager so have some familiarity.

I've seen some scripts for Thrustmaster T.A.R.G.E.T. that allow zero order joystick control. That is, deflections from the centered joystick position corresponding to an absolute coordinate location, rather than a velocity for cursor movement. This is useful in "tank" games like Mechwarrior but not so much in flight games.

I can't see so far a means to achieve this in CH Control Manager.

Anybody know if this is possible, or even better, know how to do it?

As in using the controller as a mouse? Can do easy in CM. The Mouse is in the dropdown as a DX Device.

Yes, unfortunately, that option uses the joystick as a velocity controller for the mouse. Deflect the joystick a little, and the mouse moves slowly and constantly across the screen. Deflect it more and the mouse moves slower. I want to use the joystick as a coordinate controller, so deflect the joystick a little and the mouse points at a specific spot. Deflect it more, and the mouse points at a specific (farther from centre) spot.
