Adjusting analog controller movement speed


Recommended Posts

I'm pleased that the latest builds of TDM offer analog controller support but is there anyway to fine tune it and adjust movement speed when pushing the sticks forward/backward/strafe etc?  Right now the slowest movement using the analog stick is too fast.  Can it be made to creep forward or strafe even slower?  I would still want it to be able to run at maximum speed if the stick is pushed forward all the way however.

Is this only for VR?

Thank you advance and Happy New Year.

"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.

No, I find the controller the ideal way to play Thief games regardless of whether it's for VR or not.  I game and compute from my couch with a wireless KB/mouse and a DS4Windows Xbox controller emulator setup.  For Thief games, I use the Xpadder controller scheme someone posted on this forum almost 10 years ago, originally for TDM, but I use it mostly for Thief 1 & 2, and it feels nearly perfect.  The trick is to get what feels ideal for you in the re-mapping.  I saw one poster here implying he spent an entire day getting his controller configured just right for him and TDM (I didn't like his cfg though). 

However, the native TDM controller feature has analog movement at its lowest that's faster than that for the TG/T2 games (adjusting in_padDeadZone mentioned above didn't help).  I like to creep.

See the section "Additional Information" in https://bugs.thedarkmod.com/view.php?id=6402 for a possible workaround where you control the movement type (creep, walk, or run) by the left analogue trigger.

What you are requesting may be something like "control movement type by movement speed" mentioned higher up in the description of that issue.

      Taking a break to alleviate burnout. In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have jumped into a map-making contest so quickly after just finishing another project and especially with my busy schedule, but I do believe I have something that the community will enjoy. No clue if I'll be able to finish it on time for the competition if I factor in a break, but I'd rather take my time and deliver something of quality rather than engage in development crunch or lose part of the map's soul to burnout.

      Working on an update for my mission By The Cookbook. If anyone that played it has any further bugs to report, please let me know.
      I posted more details about the update in the mission thread.

      Happy birthday to me!
      Yes, today's my birthday and as much as I want to play The Dark Mod, I won't until it's late Autumn, where it should be a bit chilly in my place and there's some wind too.
      For now, it's time to enjoy my birthday, if any of you want to play a great fan mission in my honour...Well that's asking too much, just play the mission because it's fun, not because of me, enjoy it yourself! 💪
