Foot switches / Foot pedals

Recommended Posts

Does anybody here use any foot switches? This game needs so many fingers to control your ship, so I thought of using my feet.
If you have any experience of using foot switches in Star Conflict, please, recommend something not too expensive.

I used to have one of this for clinical dictation, but have not tried it for game purposes.

I always thought one of these would be amazing for Star Citizen because it would make it feel like actual rudder pedals, but in Star Conflict it seems rather pointless. I frequently play it with just my mouse. (Then again I do have a 26 button mouse...)

I wonder if any ot these foot switches can be used in Star Conflict. Has anybody tried? I mean, I would use this device to fly up/down or use hull/shield modules, but it would also be great to use such to control my video/audio player/text editing software, Photoshop and any other software. I would assign its buttons for other purposes and not only in Star Conflict.

I did it just a couple of time. I had a weird control configuration for the space sim X where I was using 2 joystik+pedals and the keyb for all the macros.

It's not that functional in Sc, If you use normal controls in game options keyb+mouse gives you all that you need. Things improve when you switch to advanced controls where you need a slight more responsive control feeling in order to do stuffs that normal controls do in a sort of "auto mode". But advanced controls need a real good ping, so no. Foot switches+keyb+mouse wuold be kinda pointless. Also, you need to consider that if the foot switch are just switch and not "analog buttons/lever" where you can dose the strenght needed to send inputs, your feet after a while will start to suffer.

On top of that, afaik, SC don't supports force-feedback input.

Guys, has anybody actually made foot switches work with Star Conflict? Does SC support foot switches?

I think it has joystick control, not sure about foot switches though.

Key to understand it is:

Software would bind switches of usb-devices to certain keyboard keys (e.g. in SC number keys 5,6,7,8, are not mapped).

The place you would operate a second mouse or input device - be it on top of a table or on the ground for your feet - is not important.

In deed my mouse 16 key mouse is administered in my Linux desctop as 2 seperate usb-input devices. This means, that yes, Star Conflict will accept input from more than 1 mouse   :)

I had foot pedals assigned to rotation. But since removal of rotation keys - no more.

Aha! Have you tried assigning other functions to the foot switches? Say, using modules or other controls?

I dont use any since, i somehow, lost mine. Nor did i ever used one for SC. But it was a Fragpedal Quad. I liked the level of pression adjustement on it. Good proportion between the 5 levels. Infinity pedal seems fine. I guess google already told you that but infinity and Stinky foot pedal are the competitors. They are the top 3 i guess.

My finger would hit at least 3 button at every smash. And that other guy with 26 buttons... where the hell do you put your hand on that. Or is it like hold a button and press another does X. Making it 10 buttons but combinations ups it to 26.(ctrl alt delete) kinda way.

I simply moved the buttons away from the keyboard to my mouse, i have balanced it quite nicely so each hand has the same amount of controls. It's a lot easier to fly like this plus i got sooo many options it would downright unfair to use them, but i dont wanna get a bot ban xD

I use this (was a used bargain) keypad device, the Belkin n52te SpeedPad

with Ubuntu GNU/Linux. I posted some tips in the Linux section a while ago.

Nahh you wont get banned. Has they said when removed turn keys and comparing to joystick user. Those joystick users have a different game experience, should justify anything about controls advantages.

Also i just meant that by looking at the picture, there is no way i dont hit at least 3 buttons with the size of my finger xD.
