Greetings Jim.

I've made it fairly clear before, but I'll reiterate my opinion: I fully support your decision to focus on a controller that will bring forth your vision of how the game should be played. The keyboard is a fine staple for input, but it is rarely the ideal medium for complex maneuvers in games and other applications. Can you imagine a graphics specialist trying to draw an F18 fighter jet with just the arrow keys? An animation artist trying to draw a moving hand with the keyboard?


I applaud you for not caving in to slave over implementing a sub par input device in your design of Mach 1. I think that product developers have every right to put their foot down, make things as they wish, then see what happens -- more so if the end product is free of charge! Rather than try to please everyone, you should always design it to your vision, make it something you yourself would enjoy playing, not some Joe Shmo who you'll probably never meet. If Joe enjoys your game, then more's the better, but by no means should Joe's satisfaction or lack thereof sway your vision.

Lookin' forward to the new release!
Kai

Hi,

Thank you all for your Mach 1 tts comments and suggestions. I know that the Logitech MOMO Racing controller is not cheap. It costs like $100.00. I'm sure that allot of people are not going to or can not spend that kind of money for a specific game controller. I got half of it as a gift and paid for the other half. Then I learned the VB6 joystick code. So I then wanted to write a game that used the steering wheel and was as close to being like real driving as I could make it. So I am not going to dumb down the game for the keyboard. I am sorry that the game will probably not be as much fun with a non steering wheel controller and even less so with the keyboard, but hey I could have written it and just kept it for myself. <grin>

Thanks again and BFN

    Jim
