  1. Saw this on Reddit this morning and was absolutely blown away. The possibilities for this joystick to completely replace dual stick/HOTAS setups or to complement them considerably look to be awesome. Sublight Dynamics plans to launch a Kickstarter to fund production of the device late this summer. What does everyone think of this beauty? Here's a video of the device in action in a number of games including SC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNSzqO93FN4 Here is the Reddit thread: https://i.redd.it/ok83fxvynxt21.jpg And here is the companies website whe
  2. Is immersion, and are haptics, still relevant? Sony has recently revealed their new controller... and it looks like they've replaced the usual rumble pad with actual haptics and force feedback. In their blog post, Sony detailed the "variety of powerful sensations" haptic feedback can bring to gameplay, like "the slow grittiness of driving a car through mud." Haptic feedback is the same technology behind the Nintendo Switch's HD rumble and we know the Xbox Series X controller will make use of it as well. Probably the most famous haptic controller in this community will be the Mi
  3. Virpil recently posted their 2 years in review where they also announced they'll be releasing their new WarBRD grip on 23rd January 2019. This is their current lineup of products where you see: WarBRD Base with a Constellation Delta Grip Desk Mount MT-50 Throttle MT-50 base(now discontinued) with a MT-50CM Grip Pictures of the new WarBRD grip: Its specs are: Dual Stage Trigger 1 x 8-way POV Hat (+ Push) 2 x Momentary Push Buttons 4-Way (+ Push) Thumb Hat All Metal Twist Axis with VPC
  4. Hello, I recently purchased new Virpil WarBRD joysticks and was hoping to sell my used Thrustmaster TWCS throttle and T16000M (FCS HOTAS Set), CH Pro Pedals, and my VKB Gladiator Mk. II Joystick. They all worked great, I was just hoping to upgrade / change my setup. They are still like new in the boxes. The T16000M has both left and right grip adapters. CH Pro Pedals - $80 FCS HOTAS - $90 VKB Gladiator Mk. II - $80 SOLD Thank you!
  5. A friend tipped me off to VirPil.com, producer/sellers of some joysticks and throttle accessories -- the sticks are both for left and right handed use catalogue: https://virpil.com/en/shop https://virpil.com/en/blog/106-vpc-mongoost-50-throttle-off-to-production https://virpil.com/en/shop/grips/vpc-constellation-delta-vpc The sticks require a separate base to work, which VirPil also sells. They also have desk mounts, stick extensions, mounting plates and dust cover. Here's the thing - they are NOT cheap
  6. So I've been rocking an okay joystick for a while, a Logitech Extreme 3D. It works well enough in Freespace 2, but in SC it's not precise enough and I can't aim well at all. I've moved to a mouse and keyboard setup since, and have drastically improved my combat aim. My question is if a better joystick might yield better results? I see people mentioning HOTAS controllers and dual stick controllers as options and was looking for feedback from the community.
  7. Hi. I'm not exactly sure where to post this because its about hardware but the problem is more likely with software. If it's wrong, mods feel free to move it;) I just bought a Thrustmaster Warthog Hotas (yeah, I know.. I couldn't resist. so.. shiny..) and I'm having some problems getting it to function the way I want it to. My issue right now is that it doesn't pick up the throttle at all. I can move that thing up and down and nothing happens. The lights are on and all the buttons are functioning but the throttle does nothing. I've tried following several setup guides (like Cl
  8. So, I am looking at a possible job that would have me on the road several days a week on some weeks. As such, I am looking at portable flight solutions. I have 3 or so power gaming laptops I am looking at so that part is handled. But, I need some sort of flight control system that is somewhat portable other than a gamepad. I have never liked gamepads myself and would rather do mouse/keypad. But, my preference is something stick based. Anyone have ideas? The x-56 allows you to detach the stick from it's base. But, overall, the thing is very bulky and I would prefer something more portable. Just
  9. Just won a CH Fighterstick on EBay for £45, where nobody else bid, and bought the T.16000M FCS HOTAS for £83 from CCL Computers. That leaves me £52 to buy pedals from the £180 I sold my warranty replacement X56 for. I've refused to start playing in the PTU until I know and have the controls I want and it looks like they'll be here just in time for 2.6.
  10. What will you use for controlling the game? Keyboard and Mouse or a Joystick? It's been so long since I've used a Joystick for gaming that I'm going to have to order a new one. Any suggestions on a good one? I've seen a lot of cheap ones but nothing great yet unless I want to spend over $500 on these ebay joysticks
  11. I just got myself a Warthog and am extremely excited! But it seems I can't get the system to work right. When I run their T.A.R.G.E.T. system with the keybindings that I set up my throttle goes from 0 to 100 and that's it, no backing down to 0 even. I would like to have the set up with at least increments of 5 with full stop at the throttle's idle position. Can anyone help me?
  12. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826280021 Currently on sale for USD $299.99.
  13. So what's coming? A replacement for the Warthog? A 6DoF controller with quality built in? Only a month to find out if I have a gently used Warthog HOTAS to sell.
  14. Hey Hoping someone could advise me on some joystick mounts This is my current setup (running dual T16000m joysticks) and I feel like I can't be precise enough, the only place for my right joystick is on my large mousepad and I constantly move it depending what game I'm playing. I was thinking of getting some kind of table mount so I could lover the joysticks and rest my arms on the armchair, that way I would only be moving my hand on the joystick but not the whole arm like i'm doing now. That itself doesn't have to be difficult, just take some
  15. Ok, I am desperate for some technical help. I cannot get a joystick to work in Star Citizen. I have Saitek x52 Hotas but due to windows 10 driver issues I splurged and bought myself a Thrustmaster Warthog joystick on Amazon. I cannot get Star Citizen to recognize it. My setup: Windows 10 64bit, 16gb memory, Asus X99 Deluxe with I-5820, Dual Asus GTX 980 in SLI, BenQ 4K monitor, Thrustmaster Warthog joystick (only). I have followed driver installation instructions. After installing, Star Citizen just does not see the joystick. I had the same issue with the Saitek x52. When I go
  16. I noticed a couple posts that mentioned Aimpad on these forums and thought I would reach out for some feedback. For a quick recap, Aimpad is a company that is developing an analog keyboard. In other words, sensors are mounted under the key switch to sense how far down the key is being pressed and then translate that into an analog joystick axis. I have made a series of YouTube videos that focuses on how a keyboard like this can benefit you in different games. For my next one, I would like to focus on Star Citizen. However, I don't have a lot of experience in the game. I am looking for ad
  17. So I was flying around in AC and I noticed, it would be great to just have all the flight buttons/macros on a controller. Chris Roberts uses a controller to fly, so there may be quite a bit of support for it. I've been following the Xbox Elite Controller and they have four extra "paddle like" buttons, essentially making the controller easier to use in flight and driving sims. Also the D-Pad has now turned into a flat joystick like button. The flight mechanics, in the past, have been too complicated for anything but a HOTAS or keybooard+Joystick control. However the Xbox Elite controller closes
  18. Looks like we're going to get a Saitek-made controller. Wonder if it'll be worth it? http://globenewswire.com/news-release/2015/08/04/757593/10144478/en/Mad-Catz-R-Teams-Up-With-Cloud-Imperium-R-Games-to-Create-Dedicated-Saitek-R-Branded-Star-Citizen-R-Hardware.html
  19. found this tidbit in this article --> http://www.killerguides.net/blog/mmorpg/summary-of-major-mmorpgs-and-rpgs-in-gamescom-2015-a-progressive-report Unveiled were new SC peripherals made by Saitek, that will come in different colors and designs to fit the different ship brands. To allow people to aim more easily, joysticks and throttles will have trackballs on them. Beginner joystick and throttle will cost $149. Players will be able to design a station with your keyboard and one peripheral on each side, as the stick and throttle are detachable from each other. Based off of the Saitek X-65,
  20. I purchased a new joystick a couple weeks back so my old one is just sitting. It's a good stick, but I wanted one with more buttons. It's a Logitech Attack 3. I think I paid $60 for it, it's in perfect like new condition. $20 $10 + Shipping takes it. Let me know your zip and I can calculate the shipping.
  21. Has anyone got a profile for the x52 pro for Freespace 2? I tried to find one in this big black hole called internet, but most links seem to be dead.
  22. I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion for a joystick or good gaming setup to effectively fly in Star Citizen. Also, Does anyone think that a joystick setup is needed or is a mouse and keyboard sufficient? I feel that a joystick would be the best set up but am unsure and need some advice. Any suggestions? Thanks.

  24. Hi guys, Like many here I was a huge fan of Wing commander, X-wing and Tie-Fighter. I played WC right up until Prophecy. Does anyone think that Wing Commander 3 was one of the greatest PC games ever regardless of genre?! The space fights were great, the character development was absorbing and upgrading/changing your ship weapons pre-flight was so much fun. But what happened to the genre? Like many, I tried Free Lancer and its like. However you could use a mouse? and you could play 3rd person? WTF? If I wanted to play an arcade game I would play Xenon II right? Surely a space flight
