Just a heads up that I am getting similar issues to Mr Focht - my Cyborg 3D Gold joystick will move the torso with free-look disabled but it is jerky and seems to want to jump and stick into certain positions. It feels as though something is fighting it. With free-look engaged it barely moves, you can see some very small movement but not much.
The stick still works fine for other assets.
This only affects the torso movement, the X axis for chassis steering works fine as it always did.
I have tried to adjust the dead bands and sensitivity and had some success with this, getting the free-look disabled mode to work as does. I will mess with the range setting next and see if that does anything.
I have tried disabling the mouse (which I used to do anyway for mechs) and this makes no difference. Swapping the bindings to primary and secondary in various configurations also doesn't help. Setting axes to raw mode also makes no difference.
