Greetings Charles et al.

OK. I did re-read the read me file, and I guess some of the earlier observations were due to my ignorance. I do, however, hope there will be a joystick configuration tool in the file release, as I'm not altogether sure I like some of these key assignments, and I really don't like that I have to use the enter key on the keyboard to open doors and get items (unless there are joysticks out there with an entery button?).

Just thinking out loud, have you checked the "read me" documentation? It gives a list of all the button functions. There is a combination for running listed. HTH

Greetings Thomas.

I recently purchased a Logitech Rumblepad II to replace my old gamepad which was suffering from a short in the wire.
I decided to test MOTA's abilities with it, and here are my conclusions:

1. The menus (Both main menu and inventory menus) do not properly support gamepad input. When I pres button 1 (the action button), it moves up in the menu, and pressing button 4 moves down the menu. No other gamepad buttons are recognized, and there is no way to select an item.

2. When playing the game, the program does not recognize commands via the POV (hat) directional buttons (the four arrow buttons on most gamepads). Instead, it relies solely on the analog stick for movement. While this is understandable, it would be nice to be able to also move with the POV buttons.

3. There is no way to run when using the gamepad, so you're effectively stuck walking. Seeing as it uses analog input, would it be possible to make the character run when the stick is fully to the left/right/etc? Otherwise, perhaps another modifier key?

4. You cannot switch between weapons on the fly with the gamepad, but I assume this could be addressed if the gamepad/menu issue were resolved.

5. Related to both keyboard and gamepad input: When holding down the crouch combinations, the program seems to be playing the crouch sound over and over, at an extremely high rate, so that what you effectively hear is a kind of buzz. Perhaps this is only on my system, though.
