Why? It's not like you play games anymore..


I don't know why I'm even giving you an answer to that sorry statement. Anyway I play a lot of games (BF2, BF2142, Need for Speed Shift, Flight Simulator X and I have played CoD MW2 and a few more.) and not many we play are supported with that setup such as BF series. But is one hell of a FSX setup and most racing games about the only FPS that is worth a crap that works too is ARMA2 http://www.matrox.com/graphics/surround ... ubechannel for the full list. The main reason I want it is for FSX and yes I know you think its a gay game but if your not into aviation like I am then the game is not for you. I can promise you this there is not a plane in the real world I can not fly and land safely. so Image LMAO!
But you don't hang out when you play :)

I am a Joystick kind of guy. If the game supports gamepad/joysticks, I bind all the buttons and use it for movement, shooting, prone, etc. Every game I play (TF2, RO, Crysis) all allow Joystick support!

Joystick goes in my lap and my left hand controls it and my right hand the mouse.

Woah wait - you play TF2 with a joystick?!?!

Indeed. Any FPS game that supports a Joystick, I use it.

My usual config:

X-axis: Move forward/backward
Y-axis: Disabled
RZ-axis: Strafe
POV Hat Down: Zoom
POV Hat Up: Sprint/take cover
POV Hat Left & Right: Switch weapons
Trigger Button: Reload

Mouse
Look/Aim
  • Left button: Primary attack
  • Middle button: Jump
  • Right button: Crouch
  • Finger (fourth) button: Push-to-talk.

TrackIR arrived today. Purchased ARMA2 locally.

Both installed and working! Still have a lot of tweaking to do in both TrackIR and ARMA2 though, and it feels like it's going to take a while to get used to.

Will plan to post up new pictures soon.
