Could they fix it so we could fly with a joystick rather then mouse and keyboard only. my son saw me using the joystick in Star Wars Galaxy's and bought me a new one thinking i could use it in the game, but its not allowed. id like to play the galactic star fights, but my hand eye coronation is bad and i am just a easy target for other pilots. so i thaught id post a request asking if they could update the game and allow us to use joysticks.

Yea no, this a rough topic. Like hitting your head against a wall but without the upsides.

Maybe it means more people are trying out GSF?

Question: When you say you want to play with a joystick does that mean you want to have an advantage over keyboard & mouse players?

Lendul, if you have a Saitek X52pro profile that is somewhere between marginally effective and not completely teh suxxorz I'd love to see it. I tried for a long time during GSF beta and could never make it work. Mostly mapping the throttle to the W/S/X keys. The reticle control I knew would always be an issue, for all the reasons that have been discussed at length ad nauseum in the threads everyone has linked.

You can make GSF work with an Xbox controller (my friend Chenoah did) but you don't get aim assist and there's a number of other issues like with the control scheme not being gimballed that will keep keyboard/mouse players superior over you.
