It's not just a matter of don't wat to ay. Some of us really can't afford to fork over thee dough, espcially not if we're talking about a controller that'll last a reasonable amount of time. I myself actually wouldn't mind ownin a few gamepads for different tyes of games, but finding ones that won't brak the ank for someone who doesn't currently have a job is where I'm running into problems. Granted I'll probaby buy, say, the wheel for the racig games one month and the joystick later. Anybody know of some good models? That may be a good place to start.

Why pay for the wheel? Because it will work for Mach 1, it does work for Top
Speed, and it's supposed to work for Raceway. Sorry Che but I've been a
mouse user for Rail Racer, so I'm not sure if it works for that, too.

If they don't want to pay 20 dollars for a controller for a free game, then
they don't have to play the free game. I might possibly understand them
getting mad if the game cost 50 dollars and they still had to buy that
controller, but come on. The game is free.

Besides which, we need to get with the times.

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
