GameGlass, a new way of interacting with SC

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Due to it's relative infancy, I don't believe many people were aware of SCPADD.  If not, they have now rebranded as GameGlass and offer what I think will be an awesome addition to anyones setup for playing SC, among other games.  It allows you to use a tablet as an input device, similar to how ROCCAT Power Grid worked, but better.

Here is a link to their IndieGoGo page which has their promo video, although I believe that there will be a free version of this product with an option to pay a subscription for additional services.

I backed them through Patreon and should have access to a beta version next month hopefully so can provide some sort of feedback to this product.

Have a look and let me know what you think.  They have a discord channel also where you can make suggestions/recommendations.

If this is not in the right place, please move accordingly.  Hopefully this sort of post is allowed.

Thanks,

MM

Looks like a probable hit for a lot of things.

Myself, I have already set a gamepad, and also a HOTAS setup, for many of these things, but only use them occasionally (almost never – sigh), and rely on one screen and keyboard. This may change as more complex activity is released.

Even in the current state, each new ship you bring out to fly is almost a meta-game in itself. The differences are real with many of them.

Once game mechanics are involved with say, an Orion or a Starfarer, or any of the others with multiple work stations, then an additional screen may be on my desk unless I can get the gamepad up to speed for the various work screens needed to operate complex ships like these.

Even so, curious how it does work for this and other games. For instance, would it assist in switching from flight, to foot, to vehicle? (This is one of the reasons my joystick is sitting in the corner collecting dust).

Keep us informed. - DRUM out

      found this on reddit, looks pretty good, better than Roccat power grids in some respects. The creator says it can support three devices at once so far.

      I currently own a MacBook Air but for the last couple of months I've debated on getting a tablet to compliment all my technology. But I'm still on the fence about whether I need or would use the tablet over my Mac. Anybody who has both a tablet and laptop tell me how much they use both on a regular basis and / or it's worth having both?

      I happened across this video:

      And immediately downloaded Roccat Powergrid to try it out for myself.
       
      Download it here for your PC
       
      Download the app for your IOS or Android Devices here
       
      I'm thinking that with my Current Phone, my old Phone, and my tablet, I could have a pretty sweet setup showing the various controls I might need while flying in Star Citizen.
       
      One problem...I'm not really sure how to set up the macro functions.  O.o
       
      I figured out how to setup the macros and it is awesome!
