While replacing my useless mouse today, I bought an XBox controller. I might have to see how hard adding joystick support to Drox is.

If you got this working right and feeling good, I think it would be awesome.

I'm tempted to blog something, but I'll just say I'm embarrassed that Texas is being led by a bunch of bratty, manipulative children.

Looks like there will be some joystick support in the next build of Drox Operative (Windows only for now).

Does that mean the game could be played only with a joystick or -pad of one's choice, or is the keyboard still needed (apart from entering names for new ships, of course) ?

Other than typing in text, I believe you can play everything with a joystick if it has 2 sticks and a reasonable number of buttons. A one stick joystick can also, but it's not quite as nice.

I am really excited to try this! Will it be in the next beta patch?

Assuming I don't find something I horribly broke, yes it should be in the next beta patch.

We're pretty close to starting the Invasion of the Ancients beta/pre-order. There seems to be some kind of holiday this week though.
