The Red Joystick

There are two types of joystick available for our social sciences researchers:

  • TSG Red Joystick, a custom built, unimaginatively named, single-axis joystick with a bright red base.
  • Logitech Attack 3, a commercial multi-axis joystick controller.


Red Joystick

Installation

The Red Joystick is a plug and play USB device.

Configuration

When connected to a PC via USB, the Red Joystick will emulate a serial port. The following COM port settings should be used:

Baudrate 115200
Parity None
Data bits 8
Stop bits 1
Flow control None
CTS Control Off
DSR Out Control Off
DSR In Control Off
RTS Control Off
Set FIFO Interrupt Off

Presentation

Example PCL code you can program a handle to send a marker:

active_buttons = 0;
begin;
picture { 
  text { caption = " "; font_size = 16; } t_Text1; x = 0; y = 0;
} P_Text;
begin_pcl;
joystick stick = response_manager.get_joystick( 1 ); 
loop int i = 1
until false
begin	
	stick.poll( );
	t_Text1.set_caption("coordinates: " + string(stick.x()) + ":" + string(stick.y()), true);
	P_Text.present();
end;

Logitech Attack 3

Logitech Attack 3 Joystick

Installation

The Logitech Attack 3 joystick requires a DirectX 7 DLL file to be installed on your computer. If it hasn't been installed yet, please follow the instructions below.

Windows 7 32bit

  1. Download dx7vb.dll.
  2. Extract the zip and copy the .dll file into the following folder: C:\Windows\System32
  3. Open the Windows Command Prompt with Administrator rights.
  4. Register the DLL file by executing the following command:
    C:\Windows\System32\regsvr32 dx7vb.dll
  5. When done correctly, you should see the following message:

Windows 7 64bit and Windows 10 64bit

  1. Download dx7vb.dll.
  2. Extract the zip and copy the .dll file into the following folder: C:\Windows\SysWow64
  3. Open the Windows Command Prompt with Administrator rights.
  4. Register the DLL file by executing the following command:
    C:\Windows\SysWow64\regsvr32 dx7vb.dll
  5. When done correctly, you should see the following message:
