I will join when updated though do not think my joystick is configurable though, and would H8 to fly with keyboard. Anticipate getting a USB game controller for Christmas. Would be fun to multicrew in any case.

Since you mentioned TIR, a question that I know I can look up but will likely find old and so contradictory information.

What controllers and joysticks are compatible now? I remember there being many issues with configuration, and only one supported JS...

Bandy i'm always using my Logitech G940 and it is supported. I don't know if there are any issues with other sticks. But i think all kinds of controllers should work! I read about people using saitek, thrustmasters, logitech, VKB, etc.

OK thanks. If other JS now supported great, but not so long ago there was only one JS that was supported and I think it was your G940 if memory serves. I researched and all others had to go through a (to me at least) painful configuration process editing XML.

Nobody seemed to be sharing their files either, but then again, JS config can be rather personal... :oops:

EDIT: a few (N=9 none for controllers I have...) config files shared here, but if you browse the topic you'll see what I mean about a painful process... https://forums.robertsspaceindustries.com/discussion/110454/actionmap-and-controller-mapping/p1

...When I use a joystick and other peripherals it takes a couple hours to get the configuration settings dialed in. Kind of like fine tuning an F1 car. lol At least I will have a little bit of time to think about how I want to set the mappings.

Bandy that thread is from 2014!!

You have a ingame advanced customize menue where you can bind all functions to keys or controllers. In the beginning there where only a few preset configs for some joysticks or controllers (like the G940).

When did you try it for yourself the last time?
