Are most people flying with a mouse or joystick? I have not tried the game with a mouse, and there might be issues with the jump simulation etc.

What is the hardest part of the game to handle with a mouse in your opinion? Rotation? Laterals? Aiming? Menus? Throttle? (something else?)

I think the hardest part about mouse flight in TS is that there's no way to disable flight control in the menus or star map, when we have to use the mouse to interact.

Mouse flight in the caspule jumps is doable, except for the hyper-sensitivity in the tunnel.

I use a dual-axis analog joypad (very similar to a PS1/2 controller) so it's joystick all da way, bay-bee! ^^,

Ah, I understand. I don't have a way to turn off the mouse to flight controls in POG either. With wingmen trying to rotate behind you, I expect you get some collisions as you try to navigate the menus.

So you find that the mouse is very sensitive inside the jump tunnels? Might be we need to lower some rotation rates or something. I will need to experiment.

I am using a dual-axis joypad, like bozobub. My wireless version finally passed on, so I will be moving to a Saitek joystick soon.

I've got the Saitek x52 flight control system with the incredible joystick and seperate thrust controller, and it was made for this game!
You have not enjoyed this game until you try it with these!:D
