Hi,

 

From time to time flying a curve, not too steep, the plane starts to roll. Let's say I am flying a curve to the left and all of a sudden the plane starts to roll to the left. Trying to push the stick to the right doesn't help. To regain control I have to push the stick to the left in the direction of the roll, wait until I am in a horizontal position and keep flying for short time strait. After that everything seems okay. But flying the next curve the same problem occurs.

Imagine that this is deadly being involved in a dogfight or ends in a crash when happening at low altitude.

 

Does this come with packets loss or wrong joystick settings ?

Sounds like you are using a mouse. A mouse player doing a slight turn will auto level if the settings are not correct.

While the game mechanic is designed for exaggerated movement in standard configuration. It is also the same in joystick with auto level and flaps on. In my mouse settings if I do not continue to move my mouse left or right in order to continue a turn the program auto levels and correct the flight path. Much like you are describing.

Basically the mouse auto centers. I compensate by lifting the mouse up or using the roll and flap keys for shorter mouse movement on a limited surface.

Been a while since I reset my joystick for in game but with my joystick I never had to compensate for turning. If my joystick was far left I kept going far left ( actually roll left then pull back )

If your joystick is acting like a mouse then check your settings " advanced joystick " then perhaps contact support or the joystick manufacturers.

When I saw package loss I immediately thought of my x wife.

The joystick is set to 'Custom'. I play with a Microsoft Side Winder Force Feedback 2 Joystick. That joystick is not on the list. Underneath is a slider sort of automatic rudder compensation. I moved this slider to full, applied and saved the settings. Maybe that was my problem. Have to test it for some games.

I'm getting multiple instances where my joystick wont fire or quits firing. Its random and frequent. I have no lag issues - it simply quits firing or wont fire guns at all.

@EnlightenU

I can confirm that, thought the button got jammed. Interesting.

I shut that right off and experiment with dead zones in all your settings,

I'm having the same problem with intermittent firing. But only when pointed at a target... It only affects firing, dropping bombs, and launching rockets. Just started today.

Found the problem, it isn't the joystick. I fly a lot in FSX and do have rudder pedals (Saitek). When I accidently activate one of the toe brakes the jostick input gets overwritten. One toe brake is for roll and the other toe brake for pitch. I couldn't find any settings to disengage toe brakes in WOW.
