Are there any plans to implement flight stick compatibility? In SWG JTL, I never was fond of using mouse/kb. It would add a whole new feel if I could use my Saitek x-52

I do like what they've done so far. The physics are similar to that of the old SWG JTL. It's nice to have a star wars based space sim again =)

I can't remember exactly where i heard it, probably someone mentioned it at one of the cantinas, but they said that they'll definitely find a way to put it in if enough people want it. And that certainly seems like the case.

And throttle. We have go, we have go faster only when holding w. Boost with spacebar (which I'm fine with)
we have slow down, again only while holding down s. And we have full stop only with x ( which I can deal with). I would like to have a scalable, holdable throttle input. Yes, I am a flight /space sim veteran.

Not as important to me as having configurable joystick, but it is still a tactical consideration. I realize this will never be a sim but since Christmas is coming up I felt I should ask for it.

Yeah joystick is a must for this. I don't even want to get use to a mouse and keyboard so I will probably just wait till it's implemented. TrackIR support would be nice too!!

I was thinking you could map that x52 to any keyboard/mouse control through the software that came with it?

+1

Flightstick support should have been there already. BW's erratic mouse control scheme gives me a headache. I spend more time spinning in circles attempting to find the pointer than I do actually flying; I usually get it straightened out just in time to be picked off. While they're at it, they could add some camera controls, I would prefer to zoom in and have a HUD view instead of 3rd person. I would love to see TIR support, however, I find it doubtful that will happen.

Yes signed.

Controller support along with first person cockpit view needs to be added immediately. As in patch 2.5a, not next summer.

The only time a controller or controller support becomes needed is if we have cockpit view.. Since we have 3rd person like the rest of the game.. We really don't need it and it would be awkward to fly in third person view..

All they have done is take what we had before off the rails.. That is it..

They never said anything like that during the closed beta.. What was said is their typical soft no.. 'We have no plans for it at this point in time, but will look into it for possibly being added in the future..' Something along those lines.. Bioware has yet to say definitely about anything.. So I seriously doubt your claim is accurate..

Most people in the beta didn't think it was needed and it would make the controls awkward.. Your best bet is a 3rd party solution that allows you to assign controls to a controller..

Adding a controller to this would in many ways open a can of worms.. Suddenly people would want to use a controller to play their characters..
Who is the more foolish? The fool or the fool that follows him?

I would love cockpit view and joystick support.
