Thanks, I used to play on my 386 with, if my memory serves me right, a Gravis Gamepad hooked up to my good ol' Sound Blaster Pro.  Ah, the good ol' days, I played all the way through SC2 again after I got that card - after having played through it with just the PC speaker the new sound was amazing (especially the sweet MOD tracks).  Later bought a 3DO off eBay plus a brand new copy of SC2, so I ended up getting used to usinga  gamepad with that too.

The original Star Control I think was a keyboard only affair though since I didn't have joystick OR sound card... Sad
That's where I first learned to love melee!

So I CAN play with the keyboard, but if given a choice I prefer the gamepad.

Thanks for your replies.

Anybody had any luck with getting joystick/gamepad support to work?  Am I posting in the wrong section?

TIA for any replies.

I've tried to configure UQM to use my joystick (Sidewinder Gamepad USB) by editing the key file, but I keep running into the same problem.  On the opening screen (or any menu for that matter) when I press the down arrow on the keypad, the selected option (New Game, Melee, Load Game) changes but begins to cycle through all the choices very rapidly, even after I've released the keypad button.  Combat is impossible.  I change the key file back to use the keyboard and everything works fine.  This is probably something simple, but I would appreciate any help.

Thanks!

I can do Druuge and Ilwrath and maybe some more this weekend while my girlfriend is away at work.  I'll have to do it on her computer though... gotta run home and burn UQM 0.12 to CD.  I love listening to the Ilwrath!  Grin

Now didn't you say you need multiple samples for each race to make sure we get the timings right?
9  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Can someone help me with 3DO information pleas on: January 17, 2003, 08:53:48 pm
I went out and bought a 3DO off eBay but I only have one game for it... you guessed it, SC2.

Of course UQM hadn't been announced back then, and there are no really good (or working for that matter) 3DO emulators out there.

I think I paid something like $30 for the 3DO system (before shipping) and $50 for a BRAND NEW copy of Star Control 2 from some guy in Australia.

There are two basic models of the 3DO put out by Panasonic.
The original FZ-1 has the front loading tray.  These are the ones that initially cost something like $600.  The newer ones are the FZ-10 and the disc loads from the top like the Playstation.  I think some other companies such as Goldstar also made 3DO systems or 3DO compatible systems.

As far as I know, the main difference between the two (FZ-1 and FZ-10) is that the newer one has some sort of copy protection built in (won't read burned CDs) whereas you can still play copies on the older model.  The CD images are kind of hard to find, but you can probably get some from irc or newsgroups.
