Temporarily relocated to Brita...
So far no bugs of any real note. I have an old Logitech Extreme 3D Pro that I've managed to map pretty much how I wanted it, but damn it didn't make it easy (lots of trial and error). It does appear that it should support a multi-joystick setup (differentiates between left and right stick), but it needs some clarification to figure it all out.

Not too far into it, but video= okay. Need to play around with settings still (actual game video is pretty good, but scripted videos look several years old, and when characters talk they look like the old Godzilla films with their mouths moving utterly independently of their words).

I can also attest to the fact that the sound is, at best, sub-par, but that can be worked on.

Performance wise though: no crashes or issues so far. Definitely nothing that would make me say the developer screwed us over, just that it still needs to be touched up a bit.

Fantastic so far for me, looks and plays great. Only complaint is the controls, I can't use my Warthog but things are mapped to it and I cannot undo it! Guns firing on their own and I'm drifting off to the side. May have to disconnect it.

I played with a 360 controller and tried setting up my THOTAS X too. It's one or the other for each function in the menu, but seems like it might be set up for some things built into the game. Or it could be reading that stick as a PS3 controller. Throttle worked, but I couldn't map the trigger for weapons. I bet you could do it somehow, or surely with a stick with its own config software (this one doesn't have that).
I intend to play 360 controller only, I was just curious. The tutorial mission is doing a good job explaining things.
I like the highway/superhighway system. You can hop out anywhere, it isn't just a glorified loading screen. I'm playing with the auto leveling on, so you have a plane of reference, but you can turn that off. It does have rotating as well as yaw, but not sure how you'd do that on the 360 controller without giving up at least your lateral thrusters.
I swapped the ship control sticks, which feels better for the piloting part.
So far so good and no issues. Runs well.

I have always had issues with "real" joy sticks and the X universe. My logi 940 I can only pick one device to be the stick in X3's stuff. If I knew where the heck my old x52 was that worked. But it seems they are pushing control pads now and not sticks. =( Me wants game. Me has no control device that will work right. Unless I find where my stinking old x52 went.


OOOOHGHHH just thought of something.. franken control scheme! Throttle in left hand mouse in right. LOL I wonder if that would work. I MIGHT try that in x3 prelude and see.

I played the old games like that. The games seemed to NEED a mouse for targeting, but the throttle was a lot more fun than kb. My stick has a rudder on the throttle that made it work well.

I was looking at the controls and thinking of just giving up "swap to previous" on both weapons and missiles and putting next weapon/missle on dpad left/right then moving 2 (the menus) of the face buttons to up/down so I can put roll on the bumpers.

Is that able to be done?

I wish I was alone on my ship. Or at least that purple Lisa would put some proper clothes on. I think she has some kind of skin condition ... jpegitis. I wasn't expecting skyrim or mass effect but the characters in this one are just not good enough to add much to the game. I'm staying in my pilots chair and the lady is getting off at the next stop.

...and I had to disconnect my G940. If I have to spend a week configuring every darn aircraft in DCS when I connect it again, I'm billing Egosoft. The good thing is that I can finally play Dead space and Dead space 2 which I never played because of my fear of disconnecting my HOTAS.

Performance wise I'm running everything at max @ 3600x1920 and it's running smooth enough. I get some slowdowns or actually second long pauses once i a while but I think that's a sound issue. No crashes either so far.

Been watching that streaming thing....I do not know why... LOL But probably pick this up next month. Its the rainy season in Washington. Nothing to really do but play games and make stuff in the spare time. LOL. Looks like this winter will be a cold one. I guess stock up on games and books lol.

But I never got that into prelude. Probably finish that 1st.

The easiest thing to do would be to just give up the left/right strafe on the stick and put roll there.

You have 4 axes how the game sees it, 2 on each stick. The game considers the triggers to be analog buttons, not axes, kind of a 3rd type of control, along side axes and regular buttons. But you have need of 5 axes. Pitch, yaw, roll, strafe up/down and strafe left/right all have to be on axes. No idea why strafe would have to be, on my flight stick I think that was my HAT button. You'd think you could put that on the d-pad at least.

Certain controls have to be on an axis, others have to be on buttons. So, you can fire with the trigger (mapped under Weapons) OR you can map firing to a button (mapped under Weapons II).


*The game got patched from 1.11 to 1.12 just now. No clue what that did.

Hmmm.... not too bothered about the keyboard bit. I have a full flight sim setup and thought I could use that with XTC but I never really fly the ship unless I am fighting some bad guys. For trade runs and just going from point A to B, I just use the mouse + keyboard + autopilot/SETA.

I'm glad I didn't buy this game. I'll wait for reviews and maybe a sale later on if I can hold out that long.

I'd like to hear how you do trading in this game though. Or how you earn credits in a non-combat/non-bounty hunter way.

Maybe there's a way to do it, but I'm not that experienced with TIR. It's not on the game list after I updated and didn't do anything when I tried anyway.
Briefly looked at the egosoft forum about it, but just saw a bunch of rude jerks...as usual. Even a site admin.
Checked steam and found a straight answer: "we haven't done anything with TrackIR for Rebirth yet, and will not really have the time to do so until the game is released, but this is one of the things we totally want to patch in afterwards."

I hate going to Egosoft, they're all rude, every last one of them. frown That's a real shame on Track IR support. You'd think they get it by now.
