Hi, I just bought this excellent game after playing the demo, I must say this game is on par to Star Control 2 (in my opinion)

Just one little thing that really anoyes me. I would like to use the dpap on my joystick rather then the analog joystick. As far as I can tell my Analog Joystick is on axis 0 (which works) but my dpad is on another axis.

I cannot seem to get another axis configured.

Is there a small direct input or sdl input ap I could run to report to confirm this?

The gamepad runs fine in other sdl based games as well as directx based games. Os is windows 2000, latest patches.

Thanks

Sorry about that, what make of joystick is it? You might need to include a model number. There is a chance we've got one and have tested it as we keep a lot of PC equipment for testing. There are a million and one different joysticks in the world though so it might be a new one.

ok, both direct x and sdl report the dpad on my xobx controler (I use a xbox usb to pc usb converter) as hat

Thus

hat left
hat right
hat up
hat down

is what I would like to use for direction.


I fear this would require code change.

There's probably a third-party joystick-split program that would allow you to use the controller as multiple sticks and/or remap the axis assignments. They've got joystick interpreters that do almost everything else. Smile

An xbox controller, that's a new one, sorry Smile I'd try following the above advice and see if you can get some kind of re-mapping software for it. When we do the next Starscape update I'll try and get a converter and look into it, presumably it is doing something non-standard.

It's not that it's non-standard, it's that it's a joystick with 16 buttons and four axes. The D-pad counts as a quartet of buttons, not as a stick.
