Gamepad - cursor speed?

Post by Domarius » 04 May 2019, 13:44

Thanks to OpenMW I can play the game exclusively with the gamepad! I'm finding it helps with my insomnia, helps me relax.

Only thing is, when you get to a menu and your thumbstick controls the mouse pointer, I find it flies around the screen way to fast for me, it requires very tedious gentle presses to get the cursor onto the button I want. It's kinda frustrating... not conducive to relaxing... :)

I couldn't find a setting for it, is there a way to slow it down?

Unfortunately I don't think many of us use gamepads. :(

A quick look through here makes it look like we don't support that right now: https://openmw.readthedocs.io/en/latest ... index.html

Opening a feature request for this might be a way to go? https://gitlab.com/OpenMW/openmw/issues

However I know "sometime down the road" we are probably going to implement a gamepad UI, so your issue may be pushed off until then, and there's no telling when that will happen. :( Sorry for not being very helpful, I hope someone comes along and corrects me.

Thanks! I logged an issue there

Actually I'm surprised there isn't even a setting in the ini file for this!

This is the only (not terribly severe) issue in an otherwise perfect gamepad support!
