    I’m working on the new joystick input system, and I need people who have joysticks with issues to try out a quick test for me before I integrate it completely. Here’s a download of the core game, with only the main menu working, and some debug spew:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/lx7fpnyd6ii10rn/OverloadJoystickTest.zip?dl=0

    All you need to do is move your joystick axes and push the buttons. Everything should have reasonable values between -1 and 1, and be able to rest at 0 (or close to it).

    That’s it. Load it up and move your joystick and see if everything works. Please let me know what you see (here, or by email to luke@radiangames.com). I’m not really worried about stuff that worked before, but the stuff that didn’t like SW3D Pro and HOTAS, or something with a hat that didn’t respond. Every button/axis should output something.

    It seems to working great here, and this afternoon I’ll switch all the code over to use the values/axes.

    PS. If you had to run the DirectX 9 bat file before, make sure to run with -force-d3d9.

    I can only test it in a couple of hours when I get home. About 4pm EST.

    If it fixes the 3D Pro issue, I will kiss the floor. Hopefully it fixes both my stick issues.

    I’m getting values for all axis/buttons on my Sidewinder FFB2!

    The conversion is done. Our next build (today?) will include a new joystick system. That means you’ll have to remap everything, but a lot more stuff should work, including multiple joysticks.

    Seems to work it my MS Prec 2. Tried my 3D Pro and it also seems fine but I did notice the numbers were higher in some areas. If you want screenshots of the values, let me know. I won’t be home for part of the night as I’m volunteering but if I get a chance after I can send it to you.

    Thanks again for all the work.

    Here’s the new build 4 (still-in-testing) with the all-new joystick/gamepad input system. If you use a gamepad that’s not a 360 controller, you may have to remap the controls.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/ubqm4he7ydazum6/OverloadPlayableTeaserBuild4.zip?dl=0

    There aren’t a lot of major changes, though Challenge mode has been tweaked a bit (debris doesn’t last forever, and you can get up to 7 bots after 100 kills).

    Please only download if you have joystick issues. We’ll make this publicly available later after more testing.

    The program from your first link worked correctly. My joystick is a SW 3D Pro on Grendel’s Gameport -> USB adapter.

    I will test this out when I get home tonight with my 3d pro

    First time testing the joystick but everything working with logitech extreme 3d pro, including mini thumb stick (hat stick i think you called it)

    I will also test it on a thrustmaster joystick..

    Both have been lent to me by a friend so I am not an expert on how it should work re: sensitivity etc as I usually use mouse.

    (using build 4)

    Thrustmaster (not sure of model, T.16000M perhaps) also works, thumb stick (hat?) working, twist control working and all assignable.

    Only one thing that seemed odd, I mapped JO Button 7 to “move back” and when pressed, the menu appears.

    Not sure if any of that helps, as I say, not a joystick guy normally.

    Doh, button 7 is mapped to pause by default (and can’t change it). Will make that remappable eventually. Sorry!

    Not a problem! I also plugged both joysticks in and they register as J0 and J1
    The joystick people will be very pleased, I’m going to have to try it and hopefully see why people like to play with joysticks 🙂
