|Summary||0001498: When no joystick attached mouse control is not enabled by default|
|Description||Logic dictates that if game supports both mouse & joystick control then if the other is not available the other is used by default.|
Not really relevant but I still Do have a joystick however these new computers don't come with other than USB ports so attaching it is hard and since I just played Tie Fighter through with a mouse with ease this control method should be better tested and supported by default since there's a lot of people like me. It's only a hardcore minority who still has a joystick.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
To be honest I don't think this is a bug. A lot of people like to play using the keyboard only.
If no one has any further comment I'll close it in a bit.
True, but is it necessarily disadvantageous to have the mouse enabled, even if you don't primarily play with it?
I play with the joystick, but sometimes I use the mouse for fine-tuned aiming.
Honestly, I wouldn't mind if mouse control was simply enabled by default, regardless of the the presence of a joystick. I don't see it being a problem these days, and it would be easy enough for people to disable if they needed to.
Such a change would only apply to new pilots, since current/old pilot files would already have the setting saved. But that is enough, as most (new) people seem to use mouse/keyboard over a joystick these days anyway.

I'd be willing to make the change myself, it's simple enough, and no one's objected to it.
EDIT: Change made.
