I've finally downloaded it. I think I'm just going to set up the joystick controls today. It usually takes me an hour or two to get space sim controls just to my liking. Any tips are appreciated.

I tried it out last weekend and had some issues with my joystick (Thrustmaster Hotas X). For starters, I had to use one of my rear USB ports (I was lazy and used a front port to start with). It would recognize the joystick in the front, but would not register when binding controls for some reason. Another thing I had to do was open the launcher app within the GOG install directory to make sure my joystick was selected. Once I finally got the game to recognize it, I configured the controls like this: https://www.gog.com/forum/freespace_series/joystick_control_scheme

It worked pretty well after that, but as I mentioned in the other thread, I'm awful at these kind of games. It seems fun though

Haha I'm not that good at these kinds of games, but I really like them. I'm only a few missions in and I've already had to lower the difficulty to medium. I ended up having to use the Freespace open engine to get it to recognize my joystick. I didn't install the upgraded graphics stuff though. That guide was helpful even though I still made some changes. I have a Logitech 3d joystick. I think this game is going to be all it's cracked up to be. Thanks for getting me to play this game Moho
