Title: Best Keyboard/mouse configuration
Post by: MarekMcCloud on March 04, 2010, 08:49:55 PM
Oh jeez, I misspelled configuration. :blah:

Hey Freespacer's I have a question:
What is your preferred Freespace 2 controller configuration?
Is it best the use the mouse of keypad?

I began playing Freespace 2 and I got most of the commands on the keyboard down and I was just wondering whats the preferred controller configuration. I find using the mouse for flight comfortable, but I can't "barrel roll" like with the numberpad. I currently own a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro (http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/gaming/joysticks/devices/291&cl=us,en) but haven't set it up yet on my pc. Is this a good Joystick? Let me know.

If you have a joystick, use it. You can play the game with keyboard, keys + mouse but you may find you prefer the stick, so try it.

Joystick (+ keyboard, obviously). I tried the mouse, but that's a real PITA when it comes to evasive manoeuvring.

I find aiming really hard with the keyboard. I can't rotate/barrel roll my ship with the mouse though. Yea, evasive maneuvering is tough, I guess I'll get my Joystick! (plus keyboard :p)

Hi Marek. I use the same Joystick and it works excellent! I play it in hard or insane, where I definitely need to evade missiles effectively. I programmed all the buttons on the Joystick so I rarely need to use the Keyboard. And it's a really cool feeling to fly with it.

Well, I don't have that keyboard (and don't plan to get it; $1500 is a bit much) but I'm getting that mouse. :)

With so many buttons, how'd you be able to do anything properly with that mouse? :)

Think this would be a smidge easier to get a hold of than that monster of a keyboard.

Hello. Different people use different devices either keyboard or joystick for the convenience and according to your interest. I have played with keyboard as well as joystick. But I prefer keyboard as I found it more easy than joystick.
