As I first recognized that there’s no game-controller support in Star Conflict I was pretty mad about it, but yesterday after I’ve found out that xpadder isn’t any kind of a solution, I thought about how game-controller would even look like in this game.
You can move the camera around all axis with your mouse and with that you also controll your crosshair. Think of having a joystick, you start tilting to the right, what should happen now?
The most obvious option would be that the joystick just emulates the mouse. So it controlls both camera and aiming. But now you stop tilting to the right and you release your joystick in the center position. You are now looking to the right and you are even still aiming to the right, wich will cause your ship to turn around instantly. But even if the joystick would controll just one, camera or aiming, it wouldn’t be much fun to use.
I really would like to see game-controller support, but I think the controll system we now have isn’t supporting this.
