Handheld Controller Rudder SimEvents?

I'm trying to mask the SimEvents for the rudder. Works great with hotas/yoke/stick, etc. But with handheld controllers(e.g. Steam/Xbox), I can't find the SimEvents that are triggered.


I've tried:


AXIS_RUDDER_SET
RUDDER_SET
RUDDER_LEFT
RUDDER_CENTER
RUDDER_RIGHT

I've even tried guessing some in case they're not documented.

AXIS_RUDDER_LEFT
AXIS_RUDDER_RIGHT

These two based off of what the controller mappings label them in the settings menu. Which neither work.


Does anyone know the name of these SimEvents? I'm guessing there's two separate ones as there's separate assignments for each controller trigger.

@evanburnsdev,

You should be able to intercept those key events with `RUDDER_AXIS_PLUS` and `RUDDER_AXIS_MINUS`. Let me know if that works for you, else I can go digging further to see if there are any other key events to look for.
