Gamepad Support

Hi,

 

i couldn´t find anything for Doom 3 Gamepad Support. But for the Darkmod it would be perfect, for me. In the first two Thief´s (didn´t tried Thief 3 yet) I used the left stick for walking (how much you push is how fast you´re walking) and I LOVE this! It adds a more realistic feeling and more suspense when sneaking up behind a guard and I would be happy to use this in the dark mod!

 

I used this on the game "SiN", which has the quake2-engine and hopefully Doom3 uses the same commands, I have to try...

 

The rest of the commands could be emulated with something like "Joy2Key". I´m always using "Mouselook" with the right Stick, it´s more sensitive.

I would be happy, if the X and Y axis would be supported by the game!:)

Yeah gamepad would be great for this. It might be possible with a special keyboard > gamepad convertor. I did try a trial of a shareware one once but forgot what happened to that. I recall the free version you had to config every session so I didn't get too far.

Actually I´m using "JoyToKey", it´s the best there for free. But I´m not happy with it.

 

As for Doom 3 I found a very good one: "Pinnacle Game Profiler"! But it´s not for free. The very good thing here: it downloads a profile for Doom3: When you push the left stick a little you´re walking and when you reach a specific threshold you´re running!

This is very good but I couldn´t get this function to work in JoyToKey and I wasn´t able to find an alternative program(I´m not interested in shareware)! If someone does know, how to add keys to certain threshold-parameters, please tell me!!!

 

I found another program called "AutoHotkey", but it uses script only and I´m not able to understand how it works for my Gamepad...

 

As for Doom3: I tried everything to add the Joystick-Support, but nothing worked out. It seems it´s really not in the code. Very sad. I really hope you guys are able to make it possible. I heard in Quake3 it was still implemented and I assume this is the most similar engine/code to Doom3, so maybe you can just "copy" something? :rolleyes: I know, I know, it´s not that easy, at least I think so... ;)

I bought Pinnacle Game Profiler a few years back, have loved it ever since and used it for many games, playing Thief, Oblivion, Mass Effect, and other games with an XBox 360 controller.

Hey Rich, glad to see you here! I learned the d3 editor a lot thanks to your tutorials! I don't really have anything to add to the topic, but I've not been around here as much lately so I hadn't seen you posting.

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:

      Beams, beams, beams...
      Support beams, and cross beams, and then beams to fixate the support beams to the cross beams. The more beams you have in a map, the better. There's walls, floors and ceilings, but the rest of the map is pretty much just beams. Beams makes a thief happy.
