    First of all thank you, thank you, thank you!!! What a treat it is to fly a ship with a joystick! Especially with Auto Break Off!

    Device: Thrustmaster T.16000M and TWCS Throttle

    Reproducibility: Always
    Severity: Trivial

    Type: (not assignable)

    Summary: Look left/right/Up/Down cannot be assigned, however most settings like strafe, roll axis, etc work fine.

    Description: If I click on the --- nothing happens, it does not select and certainly it does not accept the controller's input. I have assigned almost every action in Empyrion to a controller button or axis, the majority works, but I cannot fly i.e. control pitch or roll with it (I still have to use the mouse).

    Steps to Reproduce: Plug it in, go to controller menu and click on the assign --- button for either primary or secondary.

    I agree - having the same issue. I use Pinnacle Game Profiler for my mappings. So I cleared all of the new native mappings in Empyrion's control panel>options, but the game gets confused when I'm dragging and dropping inventory items. Starts scrolling when I try to pick-up/place stacked items, cursor seems to be vibrating between two different positions a couple pixels apart, my back button (B) always seems to register as a "hold" command (which brings up System command overlay). The biggest thing is that we can't assign press & hold commands using Empyrion's mapping interface. If we could do that, I think I could replicate according to my customizations and stop using Pinnacle altogether. I tried playing last night for about 45 minutes, but had to declare the game unplayable until I find a workaround. The real irony is that I once wrote a note to Empyrion devs begging for controller support. Be careful what you wish for I guess! Hope it's short-lived, as I do love this game!!

    Sometimes the assigning process takes a second. I think you tried this already.

    Questions:
    1. You are trying to assing a button OR an axis?
    2. Which tab in the Options do you use? (Keyboard or Mouse?)

    Either, it doesn't even select. All the other functions work well, if I click on them they turn yellow and I hear a sound/click, but when I press the --- on the look left/right, etc nothing happens at all.

    Hope this helped!

    Device: Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick

    Reproducibility: Always
    Severity: Minor

    Type: Not Assignable

    Summary: Cannot assign joystick inputs for "Keyboard" commands.

    Description: Similar issues to Bollen here. Not sure if bug or WAD, but I would like to assign controller axes as the secondary input for rotation commands under the Keyboard tab. Before Alpha 8 this worked just fine, but now when I hold back the stick, even for several seconds (or try any other axis with the joystick) nothing happens. When under the controller tab, I am able to assign joystick axes to commands, but none of the commands seem to correspond to what I want, which is essentially to be able to pilot a ship with a joystick.

    Steps to Reproduce: Attach controller, attempt to assign joystick axis to a rotation command under the Keyboard tab.

    Couldn't find a thread for Controllers/Keyboards for hot fix from today 6/17... so, here it goes. - EDIT: moved from original posted thread to here - (Once I found it, lol)

    I used to be able to map pitch and yaw for piloting. Now I have to rely on auto "O" to balance out my ship. It works ok I guess, but I still cannot perform a Turn Left/Right when I need to squeeze in to a tight spot.

    I only use kb and mouse and cannot assign any key to do just these things.

    I had a lot of controller issues in experimental now i'm down to just the one. I cant seem to arrange my bindings /inversion so that my look up and down when in ship is same as when I get out. Its reversed, so when i get out of my SV i'm looking all over the place like a day1 noob :)

    We will definitely need Deadzone and sensitivity settings for controllers, otherwise it's almost impossible to stay still...

    Mode: (Creative, Survival)
    Location: (Singleplayer, Dedicated Server, Peer2Peer Coop)

    SERVER NAME: n/a
    SEED-ID: unknown

    If applicable:
    MODIFIED PLAYFIELDS: No

    Reproducibility: Always
    Severity: Minor

    Type: Controller Mapping

    Summary: Can't map joystick buttons to direction movement, only axis'

    Description: In the joystick tab, there are no bindable actions for move forward, move backward, strafe left, or strafe right. The only actions available are "walk" and "strafe" and those only work properly with axis inputs. We need the option to do individual keys as well as a single axis, exactly like how the "roll" action has both "roll left" and "roll right" bindable, but also has an action for "roll left/right" for use with an axis. This was all possible in alpha 7.6.

    same as all the above, Black widow XE SL-6640 unable to bind steering control axis to controller mapping.
    Several options unavailbe for click and map.

    Was able to bind roll but not simple turn left and right as done with mouse or arrow keys.

    Thrust lever works but pushing it forward goes backward and backward goes forward XD need an invert for that.

    Glad to see the controller mapping getting on though, was only aware today that I could use my flight stick.

    I've noticed that I can't even set keyboard/mouse keybinds for functions that have had their binding removed. I can only set a bind to a function that already has another key/button bound to it.

    I had this exact problem also, after say removing the left and right arrow bindings for keyboard, I was not allowed to reassign the original keys or any other, I had to click reset to default.

    I had removed them in the hope that it would allow directional control from the stick.

    I was happy to find that setting the controller "Walk" function to a thruster handle fully works as a linear thruster control & cruise control allowing choice of speed.
    This makes my boats sooo much better :D
