BF 2042 ground vehicle controls are goofy

BF 2042 ground vehicle control is weird

Two of the vehicles drive like I want which is
WASD - forward - back - turn left - turn right

Then I get into the other two vehicles and the controls are
A  / D - turn left - turn right - and this is fine
But it's (M1) mouse left and (M2) mouse right to go forward and back

What is going on here?
How can I make the vehicles all move with WASD?

Thanks for any help with XIM settings

I am not even trying to fly, that is also a nightmare

It has nothing with XIM.
In BF vehicles in which the driver doesn't shoot (transport ones) are controlled by L2R2. Like in driving games.
Go and check in-game settings for transport vehicle control.
Maybe in BF2042, you can change it for "normal" steering with the left joystick.

I already tried all the in game alternate drivers settings

I was hoping there was a way to do this with the XIM

I guess the easiest way is to copy your current BF config, make a new one, paste your original one and name it BF vehicles. Bind them under F1, F2, or other keys. In the new config just change L2R2 for WS and that's it. When u jump into a quad or another transport vehicle just press F2, when u jump out just press F1.

Maybe there is another way, faster or better. I'm not playing BF2042 currently 🤷‍♂️

I have already tried setting up custom key binds, but I cannot make anything work.
