Just because you have a third device for certain situations doesn't mean you stop using the other two. I could easily map in a Pedal and bind it to "Redistribute Shield & Fire All Weapons" if I was bothered enough...)
LOL!!!!

But wouldn't it be better to bind it to the throttle and use the brake pedal for stop and reverse.....

Please don't stop there... pick up a force feedback steering wheel and go all out!
I used to have f/x, till my video card took a S9 to the knee...
....but I'm all better now....
Thanks CrypticFrost, CrypticCliff & everyone else involved!

Does a USB-enabled stuffed animal count as an input device? It'd be handy to be able to punch something and have it make an audible squeak whenever you're on one of those STFs. Maybe I could bind it to '/team "YEEEAHH Skittleboat party - set those Phasers to Phunkey!! :-D"'

I currently use a Logitech dual action with a program called xpadder. The controller has 16 buttons. If you assign 1 Button to CTRL and 1 button to ALT (bringing your "action buttons" to 14) this gives you 42 options to assign as each button can perform 3 different commands.
Xpadder also allows me to make macros VERY easily
This works great for me and I rarely ever have to use mouse or keyboard (in combat anyway).

I try doing the same when I downloaded the xpadder, but still couldn't figure out how to do it,I just wasted $9.99 for nothing, what I need is a tech junkie to set it up for me.

Hey Evil,

I downloaded your program and the controller is working now, only thing I'm having a problem with now is none of the trigger or buttons fire weapons when it space, didn't load the ground yet only like playing the space part of it for now. if you have a quick fix for the weapons fire please let me know.

Awesome

Been using these since release, off an on, mostly on. Just takes a bit of setting up and tweaking to be more-or-less uniform across all characters.

Downside; my neighbors probably think I am either crazy or an extreme trekkie. Or both.

I tried getting the keybinds to work on my controller but I never could get it to work quite right.

Now I just point and click while moving with the WASD keys and forget about trying to play in first person mode on the ground.
This thread needs more dancing girls.

Master using it and you can have this!

I use my PS3 controller setup to be recognized as xbox 360 controller in windows 7 using a program called motioninjoy.

The only time I need to use the mouse is to move the cursor to interact with inventory items, I can use all of my skills, my boff skills, and weapons both in space and on ground.

I was an avid keyboard mouse person since 1996 for multiplayer games, but since owning both an xbox 360 and PS3, and because I'm getting older and with an injury that nearly severed my right thumb, it is harder to use the mouse for prolonged periods.

I find it more comfortable and easier on my right hand to use the PS3 controller for periods longer than an hour.

So there are completely valid reasons for using a controller beyond simply preferring them to keyboard and mouse.

# 20 S7 Controller update

For those wanting to try an Xbox 360 controller setup, I put a new forum post up detailing the system I've been working on for a couple of years. It includes links to the keybind files as well as PDF guides for the controllers and tray setup.

The new thread is at Xbox 360 Controller Keybinds: Updated for S7
