I use the joy button 4 for drone selection, rotate Joystick
I use the joy button 3 for interaction menu ... I can then depending on circumstances use rotation of joystick to access .. Autopilot, info, dock, remove from squad, hail, attack and board as far as I can remember.
This does free up a few keys....
problem, all my saves are now sticking at 75%, not sure if it is my x52 related or something else, i have posted my saves in tech issues to find out.

latest patch cured my problems with saves.

I have now figured out how to use the pinkie as shift in the software, and i have some great macro's now. like a button press to launch drones, and same button + pinkie to return them.
And a macro to visit crew at the back, i included escape key in the macro, works great, one button and a micro second to go to crew and back, no cut scenes now.

Glad your saves are valid again ... Your work on macro's could be put to great use in the Rebirth Wiki ...plenty of people with x52's would be glad of the info / advice........ maybe if Sparky spots this he could give opinion regarding the usefulness..... :) ,, that is if your willing to put the time in....

Yes please, this would be very much appreciated.

I love my x52, but it is a PITA to properly set up if you want to play with its advanced features.

Ok here is what i am using just now.
The x rebirth file is the saitek software profile. (not too much in that, just mainly the macros.
And the other 2 files are the x rebirth "input" profile saves from within the game. Just make sure as i do to remove all other xbox or joystick binds, but leave all the keyboard binds. Hope it works for you.
I will try do a control sheet with all my controls to see a little later.

Edit, so here is the picture of all my controls up to now.

EDIT: I just realised those binds would not work for others, as i had the edtracker in the mix, which makes my x52 a second device, so prefixes "2" on all the binds.
I have now removed this and re copied the binds, so should be ok now.

Hi Miniding,Nosscar,birdtable,

I posted (this below) in the "X Rebirth - Technical Support Forum and was directed to this forum.

Questions
1. Could someone please tell me how to >Import Profile ((( I have x rebirth.pr0 from Nosscar for my
Saitek x52 ))). Sorry, I am 80 years old and need a step by step please if anybody has the time.

birdtable, I tried what you said;

"Save joystick as profile 1 in game menu and you will find it as inputmap_1" - I did as you said and got:
....Documents/Egosoft/ XRebirth Demo/12345678 > inputmap_1.XML
So now just where do I put xrebirth.pr0 so it will load in game?
===============================================================

Home of Light Demo 4.0 & Joystick Key Binding

Hi,
I would like to use my Joystick but cannot Bind any buttons & Save.

I do this: Start Menu>Settings>Controls>Contoller/Joysticks>
T.Flight HOTAS X>Empty Slot> - I select with LMouse - then I press
a Key - say Button 1 (Fire) or whatever and I get this to show:

Controller/Joystick
TFlight HOTAS X
Clear

I now press ESC and all the slots show "Empty slot"
I thought that maybe the "Demo" does not support Key Bindings
or I am not pressing a "Save Button"; or something else.

Help
1. Could the Members solve this problem for me please.
2. Give me a TFlight HOTAS X or a Saitek X52 Profile that
I could "> Import Profile" - direct into XRebirth
3. If by chance the Demo does not support Key Bindings
I still need "How to do it" for the Full Version as I
think that is the way for me to go.

Hi johnthel ....
Not sure if demo allows key bindings or not... never tried demo.
If possible then I will put a step by step process up later, around 6.00 am here, so will have to wait for the morning functions to be completed.... :)

If the demo accepts key bindings then place the inputmap_1.XML in the folder as you have done.
Go to

Start menu/Settings/Controls/Controller joysticks then scroll down to Load Profile then scroll to Custom 1 click and get yes/no pick yes.
Esc and start game ... you should have joystick control to Nosscars selection.

Make sure that gamepad mode in setting is set to controller/joystick.... If joy works ok..ish you can later adjust keybindings to suit you but save as profile 2 so you always have profile 1 to start from again.
Entering key bindings can be a bit hit and miss until you get use to the method of entry ... practise... :) and patience .. :(

yes it should show as saitek x52 profile in the load profile list, i would recommend clearing all profiles first, then just load the x52 profile, as the xbox and other profiles can interfere with it., you just want to see the default keyboard commands at first, then load the profile

Thanks for your help Guys,
Nosscar & birdtable, I did this:
Copied & Pasted Nosscars (inputmap.XML 31.1KB Dated modified 25/02/2016 3.14PM) and his
inputmap_1 into my Folder
....Documents/Egosoft/ XRebirth Demo/12345678 >
then in game Selected >Load Profile> Saitek X52 - Select and "Yes"

Start Game, got no joystick. Exit Game & did it again, still no joystick.
Do think this means the Demo will not accept any Profiles?

Guys, lastly, when you are doing a Keybinding in the Full Version just what comes up on your screen?
I need to know this as it seems I may have to just buy the Full Version.

Nosscar; 10 out of 10 for your really excellent Layout & Presentation of the Saitek X52.

With out knowing if the demo accepts key bindings/joystick or not then we are in limbo, You either have to take the plunge and buy ( GOG lowest price, at that price it is worth it just to travel the galaxy) or wait for some passing wise moderator to provide the info.
