Joystick Issues Since latest Update

Hi folks,

Has anyone had joystick issues since the latest firmware update. I am using an old XBox 360 controller that was working well until the update. Now it is completely unresponsive. I tried fiddling with the options and changing controllers but it still wont jog the machine anymore. I may have to go buy a new controller its just a shame since it was working well and still works when I use it on the X-Box. Any ideas?

this is on 1.1.1?
Is this an official XBOX 360 controller?

I am having a similar issue with 1.1.1. The X box clone controller that I’m currently using was working fine before I upgraded to the latest revision. the unit i have is made by Voyee. I’m guessing I may have to used a different controller such as the Logitech unit in the pulldown menu.

This is on 1.1.1 and an official Xbox controller. I will keep experimenting.

Ok so no joysticks are currently working. I tried factory refresh and reupdate no luck. Any ideas?

I’m having the same issue.

Same issue. I went back to the previous working rev (1.0.9).

Mine has stopped working too since updating to 1.1.1. Using an official Xbox 360 wired joystick controller. Was working just fine prior to 1.1.1.

There’s currently an issue with Xbox 360 controllers that has been fixed internally and we will release a beta soon for everyone to test. Beta should be in the “beta firmware” in the next few days.
The Xbox 360 controller had an unexpected @ character that made the python code freak out.


Thanks for the quick work! Excited to test it out.

Once again my respect for onefinity customer service is confirmed. So much love for this company.


I had this issue yesterday, it had a random lag and sometimes wouldn’t stop moving. my controller came with my onefinity and was working great until yesterday. I use 1.1.1 firmware.

Has anyone here tried the 1.1.2 alpha we posted in the beta firmware thread?

No, I will download immediately, thanks for the headsup.

Apologies in advance for the rant. The Mechanics of this machine are second to none but sadly the whole connectivity issues Wifi range, Joystick … is really spoiling what is an amazing experience, I really hope these are being looked into seriously.

Rant over.

So just installed 1.1.2 Alpha and in a quick check the following can be reported:
Initially it homed to Y= middle of the machine X=0 and called it home
The joystick moved freely then the machine got stuck and would not move to the left (standing in front of the machine)
I have changed the batteries and removed the USB dongle and swapped the USB port

It will not move to the left farther than where it homed in place because it thinks that is where the end of the rail on the left is. It’s not a joystick issues or 1.1.1 firmware issue, it’s simply an adjust stall homing issue (that has been something that will need to be done since the inception of the machine) corrected by this video here; Adjusting Stall Homing On The Onefinity CNC - YouTube

Thank you, I adjusted the stall homing when I first received the machine and it been working great ever since, until this update.
The 1.1.1 suddenly kept homing without any input, it did this about 4 times over possibly 20mins or so! it could have been a significant lag but I cant tell for sure. The “home” it did on its own actually did home properly!

I have now gone to 1.0.9 and I am glad it didn’t revert the screen back to before the flip.
-Home works perfect now
-Joystick issues gone

  • File gets uploaded easily
  • Laptop connects easy over wifi

either I am very lucky or the updates need a bit of attention, who knows…

Video and repeatability is how we’d identify bugs and fix them…so any time you find a bug, video it, try to be able to repeat it, and post it here so the developers can see it and replicate it themselves. Without any users doing this, they won’t be able to fix anything.


Will do, hopefully not many more of these😂
