I watched Herr Oberst Nu fly with his controller during our wowp group trip to the USAF museum in Dayton years ago


I've never seen anything like it, before or since.       


it was like watching two squirrels fighting over a giant black nut, in fast-forward mode

So, did anyone try to play with a gamepad?

I need details.

How does it feel compared to mouse and joystick? Is it better?

How the sticks are mapped?

Can you control the plane with left stick and view with other?

Can the D-pad be used for something?

Can all the buttons be mapped?

I like it better, mainly because i play from my couch in the living room.

Weird thing is v1.9 had a flawless gamepad support. All buttons were mapped correctly, viewing stick (left stick) and d-pad(consumables and team orders) were both functional.
Ever since 2.0 was introduced the viewing stick doesn't work, not even assigning a rearview button will work (i used a workaround, with selecting nearest target and follow nearest target cam, but it's not ideal since you lose two programmable buttons, while you only want to check your six).
D-pad is also not programmable. i can assign functions to it, but whenever i go ingame they don't work.

I can program the axis of the left stick as throttle, but whenever i want to assign it as viewing axis, it accepts, but ingame it always refuses to work.
Whenever you go to sniper mode, you lose control over your aircraft so it has become pointless.

my current setup:

left stick axis: directional controls (with inverted y-axis)
left stick button: select closest enemy

 

right stick axis: unassigned

right stick button: lock nearest target camera

 

select: switch gui-mode

start: show team panel

 

a-button: fire (combined guns and cannons)

y-button: rockets

b-button: bombs

x-button: flaps

 

left button: 0% speed

right button: boost

 

left trigger: roll left

right trigger: roll right

 



current setup: sensibility to 100 and deadzone to 0%
