Smile Congratulations + some suggestions

HI Darkwater and Fellow Flyers!

I purchased DogFighter last night and I played it for a good two hours online and I must say it was alot of fun! I'm usually not too good with online games, but I found this one easy to jump into and start blasting away (and even getting kills). I did, however, have trouble finding servers to play on - I searched and only 2 showed up! The graphics are pleasing to the eye and I like the variety of maps.

For those of you wondering about controls, I couldn't use my Logitech Dual Action gamepad, but I found that the mouse and keyboard worked pretty well. In addition to joystick support, could the devs support other gamepads too like my Logitech? It would also be good if I could bind my own keyboard controls - in particular, I found the m,n keys (for rolls) hard to hit when I have my left hand on w,s,a,d keys and my right hand on the mouse.

Also, I tried to chat while in game (t button) and the little text box came up but I couldn't type anything. Anyone else experience this? Also, I kept wanting to hit the TAB button to check the score - rather than waiting to die and then seeing the score - could this be implemented? In addition, I found that in the selection screen to select the map and planes, I found my self wanting to press the left, right keys to scroll through maps and planes, rather than mouse clicking. Minor les, I know.

Anyways, I find DogFighter a fun little game and I am very impressed with the work that has gone into it and the way in which the developers are supporting it thus far in the Steam/Darkwater Forums. The general 'friendly' vibe I was getting from the forums was a major factor in me wanting purchase the game. It's good to see that many still care about what they do, and it renews my faith in the pc gaming community.

Cheers, keep up the good work, and see you in the air!

I agree. With several of the Darkwater staff here on the forums They hear what people are saying and are listening.

How about making it you can press spawn with a xbox controller. Its a small thing but I die a lot so I have to lean forward and press spawn with the mouse. Great fun. Love. Can't wait for some better dtailed maps. Dirtbox is brilliant and as is canyon.

Well, Xbox 360 controller works well, but I personally don't like how sticks behave.

@acarnegi, Andrew, is that you?
