There are probably hidden scale factors in the cfg file that is being used.
Hover over the 3Dx systray icon when your app is in focus. It will list the cfg file in use. Open that file and you will probably find something like:

Code: Select all

  <Settings>
    <ResponseCurve>1.7</ResponseCurve>
    <ScaleX>4.00</ScaleX>
    <ScaleY>4.00</ScaleY>
    <ScaleZ>4.00</ScaleZ>
    <ScaleRx>4.00</ScaleRx>
    <ScaleRy>4.00</ScaleRy>
    <ScaleRz>4.00</ScaleRz>
  </Settings>
These are used to maintain compatibility with older apps, and still allow the user to have full adjustability in the GUI.
It's completely unreliable to insist on a range of the data. Users always have the ability to mod things behind your back.

You have some control over which default cfg file will be used. Some of the newer ones don't have this 4x scaling. Contact dev support for samples.
