Real DIY cockpit API

#1

Hi there,
I have plans for building home-made cockpit - just like for an aeroplane, but for an old-school futuristic space ship. :slight_smile:

Is there any way of supporting non-standard controllers and displays in Infinity Battlescape? Like:

  • switches and LEDs with defined I/O for controlling main systems
  • joystick & rudder pedals
  • 3 monitors for a nice view
  • tablets with auxiliary systems controls

Thanks in advance, Hanz

there is a keymapping config file which you can use to map your inputs, and if thats not enough you can use third party input mapping programms. There is no way to read cockpit/ship info from the game though and no multi screen support planned afaik.

If you are unable to find a suitable API, then use xpadder to map out your inputs and send them to Battlescape as keyboard input.
