Lets suppose you are me and you have three alternative control types at your disposal to play the game with.
-Saitek X52 Pro HOTAS joystick
-A PlayStation type controller
-A 10 euro Logitech keyboard
Which one would you find it most pleasant to play
If you have answered that X52 would be the best you'd be wrong. If you have gone with the analog gamepad you'd be also wrong. Yes, the solar panel is the one!
Trust me i have tried various combinations of deadzone and sensitivity, but the controls are over responsive, and feel very slippery. I try to lead on a target, i overshoot and my weapons are all over the place. I even struggle to land a shot on a target that flies straight(not to mention those are the hardest to hit lol). Every type of analog control is a chore to use. The keyboard has unintentionally become the best way to play the game with(correct me if im wrong but a joystick is supposed to have that role). Don't get me wrong, the keyboard has its annoyances also(you see i only got 10 short fingers that are best utilized on a joystick).
I thought "what tha hell? I will get used to this", but i didn't and i have spend a fair amount of money on my Joystick to smash it against a wall. At one point i thought to myself that this maybe is the intended controls and if i can't get used to make accurate micrometer moves to play i should quit playing, besides this is a hardcore space combat simulator.
So any suggestions?
