EASY: the X-axis of the left analog stick (navigation) will turn the plane in the desired direction instead of turning it on its own axis.
NORMAL: the X-axis will only turn the plane on its own axis.
Comment: Easy is the preferred method of play for newcomers and Namco staffers. It is set to Normal by default.
RESPONSENORMAL: the default option. Controlling the plane feels much looser compared to previous games.
QUICK: the plane's reaction to control input is slightly quicker, as a result the overall feeling is of a tighter and more responsive airplane.
SLOW: the opposite of Quick, the plane feels even looser. Not recommended.
Comment: users that dislike the "loose" feeling of AC3 can try the Quick setting.
NEUTRAL ZONEMEDIUM: this is the default option.
NARROW: little to no dead zone. The analog sticks are almost completely utilized, allowing for more precise steering and viewing.
WIDE: the opposite of Narrow. Little to no precision during flight or viewing. Not reccommended.
Comment: I prefer using Narrow.
Note: the Key Config display varies according to the controller that is plugged in (Digital, DualShock and Flight Stick.
VIBRATIONWEAK: the controller vibrates only when touching the ground and crashing.
STRONG: the controller vibrates when going very fast, touching the ground, crashing, shooting with guns, firing missiles, when stalling, and during take-off and landing.
OFF: no vibration.
Comment: vibration works with ePSXe and Mednafen. Tested using a PS3 controller via X input.
