Dual Analogue controls

(but I like lazy recliner)
(but I also hate missing headshots where I shoot across the map for the lulz).


Did you play T3..?
There was a similar thing with T2 a while ago:

Perhaps this would help you, with the mapping of buttons and stuff (cos there are many buttons in this game...)


A while ago, I tried using joy2key with my ds3 on the PC for TDM but gave up because it just wasn't fast enough response for the game, awareness and movement.
Plus I kept missing those damn rope arrows because I suck at aiming with remotes - will give your software a go though:)

Thanks teh_saccade.


It's not really ready to play yet, I'm going to get back to it soon to make it playable and get it working with windows and Xbox controller.


I did play Deadly Shadows on pc with a logitech dual analogue controller many years ago,

I was delighted with the controls but wasn't so happy with the direction the game had taken.


I played The Dark Age with a program called PinnacleGameProfiler which was much better than Xpadder or Joy2key but cost €15 at the time.

I certainly got my money's worth as I managed to play many games adequately with it including STALKER, Morrowind and Doom3.


Anyway, I'd love to play TDM with a controller even though some here might think it sacrilegious.

I'll try to get it to an acceptable state as soon as I have the taffin time.

There's actually nothing wrong with it considering Thief Deadly Shadows went great on the old Xbox.


It's not an FPS after all, precision of a mouse is not a life and death matter as it would be for shooters.

"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

- 2 July 1844 letter to James Russell Lowell from Edgar Allan Poe.

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
