Here are the patchnotes: Patch and Updates Notes
Feedback thread for Patch 0.5.3.0.
First off a few things I immediately noticed:
This patch introduced an annoying bug for me. Joystick0axis2 and Joystick0axis5 are only registered by the game in the positive direction. The negative direction is not recognised! Neither in the keybindings menu nor in the game. If I try to bind them, they bind fine if I push them in the positive range. If I push them in the negative range nothing happens. Same with ingame controls. I have those bound to ShipY and Roll and now I can only Roll in one direction and can only strafe down.
Options menu looks great and seems to work. Thanks so much for keeping the custom keyboard profiles.
The thing I missed most was the ability to switch axis direction.
I also missed a way to unbind. I learned that starting the binding of a keybinding and letting it timeout clears it though.
The different tabs in the options are so convenient. Ordering seems to make sense.
Balance changes … need to look at that in detail later, not after a night of punkrock and pogo.
The decreased turn speed cap on the interceptor is very noticeable. It seems the difference betweend direct and target mode in FA on/off have exagerated, just a feeling though. I don’t know the state of that particular bug, if it was confirmed and/or fixed.
