I've been playing with xml file configuration for joystick control in the 0.1.4.0 version. I have a logitech joystick with a handle twist axis along with the usual x and y joystick axes.
I'd like to bind the x and y to pitch and roll, and the handle twist with yaw, but this doesn't give me as much control as I'd like, since all it does is move the ship's nose and targeting reticle around, without affecting the ship's trajectory much. I have to manually fire thrusters in conjuction with joystick movement a lot to get coherent movement.
I'd like to have the joystick pitch and yaw axes simultaneously firing the appropriate up, down, left or right thrusters, to help keep the nose and the the ship's trajectory a little more in natural sync with each other, I think it would improve the sense of control overall.
It would be useful to have an override toggle button also to sever this link when desired, so you could move the nose around independently of trajectory when you wanted to
anyway, I haven't been able to think of a way to do this just with the xml files so far, so I thought I'd post it here as a suggestion, if it seems like something that would be useful
