# Configuration for Earth Defense Force 5 with flick stick
# Jibb Smart

# First, reset to defaults so we don't have to set values we don't care about
RESET_MAPPINGS

# Calibrate. Flick stick relies on good calibration; gyro and stick sens make more sens with it, too
REAL_WORLD_CALIBRATION = 832.2
IN_GAME_SENS = 50
# Please set IN_GAME_SENS to your in game mouse speed setting whenever you change it

# Button mappings
# Keyboard & Mouse bindings for this game benefits from Steam's Action Sets, so bind those in Steam

# Give access to Steam overlay, use touchpad to calibrate
HOME = NONE

# Circle button used for getting into vehicles, reuse it for gyro reset

# Get 180 degree flicks working
# This feels pretty sluggish, maybe flick time can be based on angle?

milkycowdan's Notes

This configuration is limited to flick stick and gyro control, no button mappings other than disabling calibration on HOME. I find Steam's action sets helpful for this game, since there are quite a few different vehicle types and control schemes.
Set up bindings in Steam configurator. Configure right stick as directional pad with no bindings (to get a click action). Disable gyro bindings from Steam.

How to Use this Config

Using JoyShockMapper configurations is easy once you know how. If you haven't used it before, check out the guide. For using a community config like this one, you only need to get through the first two sections — Installing JSM and Using an already-made configuration file.

Just copy the above configuration into a text file, change the IN_GAME_SENS to match your in-game settings, and then drag that file into JoyShockMapper and hit Enter to use it right away. Some games have their own limitations with certain controllers or require some extra setup, so make sure to check for any notes near top of the main Earth Defense Force 5 page.
