I'd like to point out one thing here.
I appreciate all the work Jim does, but since the game itself will be free, people might be thinking, Why should I pay 20 dollars for a controller for a game that's free? Actually, that's how I see Vip mud. Monkey term does things just as great and I'm not paying a cent to play the muds themselves. This is a bit different though, since you can use the controller/steering wheel for more than just TTS. The thing about the PS3 is the fact that your paying for the system itself as well as games. So essentially you do have an option of playing. With Jims games, though, the games are free. I think there should be keyboard support for at least a few tracks - or how about mouse support? I love rail racer for that.

Greetings List.

I can't afford the cost of the PS3, its peripherals, nor the games themselves, so I'm not playing PS3 games. Same case would apply here, I think. It's not exactly like *everyone* has to play a game. People who can't afford Shades of Doom won't play it. It's effectively the same situation.

Meanwhile, for those who can afford such peripherals for their computers, concentrating on improved support for said peripherals will make the game that much more enjoyable for them.

Hi,

There's one big problem there.
Some people probably can't afford even 20 dollars to get a controller or steering wheel.

Greetings Jim.

I don't think you should even bother with keyboard support. We need to get away from this catering mindset, where things have to be dumbed down just so everyone can use them. If you designed the game with analog joysticks/wheels/etc in mind, and if that's the best way to drive the car, then would it not be much better to focus on that, improving it as best you may, rather than trying to implement a clunky keyboard input mechanism? If people wanted to play a Playstation racing title properly, they'd go and buy a steering wheel. In the old days, you couldn't play duck hunt properly without the extra gun controller.

While I can understand clinging to things we know (I myself am guilty of this, as I'm still using XP and JAWS 7), if the developer takes the bull by the horns, then people will follow if they want to play the game. And, unless you're charging for the game, I'd say they'd have no room for complaint if they couldn't playing it -- what, after all, are they losing by not playing it? They haven't spent their money on it if it's a free download.

I'm sure this course won't please everyone, but when I make something, and it's offered free, I design it the way I'd like to use it. I only consider other users' suggestions if I myself wouldn't mind the changes, and, if I have the time and inclination to add said features.

In conclusion, if you think the controller is the best approach to Mach 1, stick with it. People would probably complain about the keyboard, even if you put it in -- since they won't have the analog sensitivity.

Hi Kevin and all,

Just wondering, do you think that I should just put out the first version of Mach 1 tts without keyboard support and maybe work on that for a second version? The only difference would be a bit of time. You know, I could get version 1 out sooner.

Thanks

BFN
