Combination button/axis inputs in inputmaps?

    Howdy. I'm playing about with some custom inputmaps and lua for a forklift truck, with great success, but I'd like to know if it's possible to use combinations of buttons/axis as inputs.

    For instance, At the moment i have the main fork/mast lif hydros on the forklift mapped to "thumbry" (right thumbstick Y-axis on my xbox controller).

    This overrides the camera controls you'd typically have assigned to that stick, which is a bit annoying.

    Is it possible to have the input only trigger when the clutch button (Left bumper) is held?

    The current binding in xidevice.json:

    "control" : "thumbry" ,
    "action" : "lift" ,
    "deadzone": {
    "begin": -0.25,
    "end": 0.25

    presumably this would include the addtion of "btn_lb" somewhere inline with "thumbry" but i'll be damned if i can get it to work.

    Anyone happen to know the right way?

    Thanks :)

    With json is that not possible, but you could use lua to load the input mapping files (only a guess) or use lua to handle the whole inputs. You may also able to check in you vehicle lua if a particular button is pressed and then you could do magic stuff ;)
