    Exactly, and I think the different places I do them are just when I instinctively need them, so I don't even realise. Maybe I just need to think about it a bit more and then I can actually use them more effectively.

    side shifting is one of the coolest game mechanics, i don't know how i ever managed to play the older W"O games without it now. But let me get this confirmed - setting airbrake sensitivity to 100 will give me a shorter SS, whereas setting airbrakes to 10 will give me longer SS ? or am I totally wrong?

    It's not about absolutes, it's about relative level of control, or precision in control. I think that the 100% setting should give more control over airbrake shenanigans in general. You could have it set to one or the other and actually find no difference if, for example, you just mash that button as hard as you can in exactly the same way no matter what your settings are. I think only some experimentation will really confirm the effect for the individual.

    Depends how hard you push the buttons I think: Maximum lateral travel due to sideshifting is the same regardless of your airbrake sensitivity, it's just your input can be slightly different depending on the % sensitivity.

    Having said that, I'm not sure if sideshift distances varies according to how hard you push the button or how 'long' you push the buttons for during the sideshift (or a combination of the two). I'll check it out later.
    For the time being: Assuming it is the former, if you have your airbrakes set to 10% you will only be able to do a sideshift that will move you the maximum amount, whereas with 100% you would be able to control this distance.
    If instead it is to do with duration of button pressing antics (like I said at the top of this post) then you will be able to control your sideshift distance to the same degree regardless of your airbrake sensitivity.

    Something along those lines I reckon....maybe Ask an expert, I'm just guessing

    @yeldar
    funky setup It is difficult for me to use default setup.I am confused.
    The role of the left hand is only handling. and right hand is another.
    This is best setup for me

    @haydn
    Wow! great setup! same nearly

    If you hold the sideshift button in on the second press for a longer time you will sideshift further across the track. Two the same will result in a smaller sideshift. What happens when you change the sensitivity I don't really know, probably just affects how much pressure needed.

    Using the Sideshift at phantom doesn't always work for me, it just results in turning the ship twice, I read on here that there was a glitch in the sideshifts but don't remember where.

    To be honest I never really understood why you could change the sensitivity, just make them work every time and everyone would be happy.

    I'm using 10% for acceleration and 30% for airbreaks, what should it be so they work without fail at Phantom?

    It happens to me sometimes too !
    Sensitivity 10% thrust - 50% airbrakes

    Default

    thrust sens: 10%
    airbrakes sens: 80%
    pitch: off
    view: far

    L1R1 airbrakes

    triangle = speed
    O = absorb

    L2 = rear view
    R2 = shot

    i use the d pad and sometimes the analog stick - i like the feel of the analog stick better but for BR-s is the d pad better. is there any real good player that uses analog or the all pros use d-pad!? to ask is not a sin...

    One question:

    Why is everyone using X as speed and not the triangle? IT`s easier to absorb a pickup when u hould the triangle and then you just push O - you can do it with just one finger.
    and side shifting.. im learning it but I just dont like side shifting, I like the flow of the game without it... but its important to learn it to. Since I am a newbie, which ship dou you prefer?

    I used the standard but now I switched to Goteki45 and I love it. Which ships are similar? Or offer more control?

    @saturnreturn

    I watched all of your videos and got inspiration for that goteki45 , which settings do you use now? airbrake 80% still?

    Aw shucks, I feel like a celebrity. Welcome to the forum. You're my favourite already.

    I switched back to Goteki recently as I started playing the game online a bit more. With the Goteki I'm using 70%. I'm definitely preferring the level of control with it set a bit higher, and I'm loving this ship again right now. Fits like a glove.
