    Joystick support in release version?

    I did a search on the forums, but I have not seen an official post addressing the joystick support issue. The demo version did not have this, so I would like to know if the initial release will.

    Since the game has gone gold, I hope we can get an official response.

      Just a question: Why would you want to use a totally inferior input device?


      BTW: Have you actually tried binding the joystick axes and buttons in UTInput.ini?

          Out of curiosity, what is the superior input device? I've always played UT (and other FPSs) using Joystick+Mouse. Some of the better players I know use Joystick+Trackball. What do the "professional gamers" use?

          No. I've looked around and haven't found any instructions that work. Trying to use older UT2004 did work for me, but I didn't spend too long fiddling with it.

            KBM > *... most precision plus you can bind a lot more stuff to a keyboard than you can to any joystick.

              the one you judge to be so - there is no real "superior" input device. if it works for you and you do well then that is the "superior" one.

              to answer your other question - i don't have real numbers, but it stands to reason that the vast majority of all PC players use mouse/KB.

                notice he said he uses joystick and mouse.

                as for being able to bind a lot more stuff...i've got a joystick with 24 individual buttons (this not including the total if the mode switch is used). it's not ye olde atari joystick with the stick and a button.

                  I am real curious as to what the numbers are. I think a lot of people *do* use KB+Mouse. Not because it is optimal, but simply because they do not know any better, or don't have the option.

                  My experience has been that Joystick/Mouse (or Trackball) players do much better. I'm a keyboard junky. I know more shortcuts than most people I know (I never use the mouse for pull-down menus, etc). I can type fast and move stuff around in a way that amazes the novice. And yet, I find Joystick+Mouse to be much better for FPSs.

                  I will admit that this may be true for intermediate levels, but false for the high end gamers. I really don't know ,which is why I was asking what the elite players use.

                  But the bottom line is that lots of players use the good old joystick so I hope it will be fully support in UT3. And unlike the old Atari 2600 square joysticks that gave you hand cramps after 4-6 hours, the modern ones are quite nice.
