4.11.0 XY-pad via joystick changes coarse and fine to same value

Post by Freasy » Sat Sep 30, 2017 1:03 pm

Hello,
I'm trying to control a moving head with a joystick. So I created an XY-pad and set my joystick axes to pan and tilt, also mode to relative. So far so good, but when I use the joystick, both coarse and fine values are the same. This makes the movement of the fixture even with lowest sensitivity nearly unusable since it's not really possible to get a slow controlled movement. When using the mouse, the correct values are used.
I have this issue with Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.04, both QLC+ 4.11.0, setting input to absolute or relative doesn't make a change.

<tldr>
- create XY-Pad
- set joystick as input for pan and tilt
- coarse and fine are always set to the same value
</tldr>

I hope I could make clear what my issue is.

Am I swimming alone here or isn't this even an issue?

Try following ...
select a fixture with only 8bit tilt & pan properties and check if it's still the case ...
I guess the error will be somewhere in the code where the A/D isn't converting propperly
All electric machines work on smoke... when the smoke escape from machines... they don't work anymore

It's also the case when using 8bit (at least the values shown are the same).
