joystick +hi object: unexplained data

    Jan 17 2006 | 11:07 pm
    I'm using a Gameware 'flightwinder' joystick, and using the hi object (which I downloaded for use with Max MSP 4.3) which provides satisfactory data output (x / y: 0 - 255 and buttons on / off). However when using just data from x axis, movement along the y axis, eg when x is at maximum(255), should provide no change in value but it outputs a strange jump from 255 to 3. Anyone any ideas why, and how to get around this serious annoyance?

      Sounds like a weird quirk in your joystick. I recommend building a small network of objects to filter out the extraneous values.
