      As mentioned in the other thread - keyboard and mouse for me. I don't have a joystick.

      out of interest, do you use a standard or gaming mouse?

      I do most things i can via keyboard, using shortcuts and such

      i've always used the mouse to do the actual flying, especially now i've got my new one :P

      i did get a joystick when X3 first came out, but i never really got to grips with it, admitidly i didn't really give it much of a chance, but i just found it easier with the mouse. I might get it out again and starting using it sometime thou

      A gaming mouse now, a normal one earlier. Though I have yet to play X3 with the gaming mouse.

      I use a joystick... I learned to fly when I was a kid, so it seems the natural thing... when Elite first came out on the PC I bought a primitive joystick, and have been using and upgrading them ever since...

      I do have a gaming mouse, but I really hated having to use the mouse on Freelancer...

      Give me a keyboard, it works for me and theres no messing around with a mouse, though I might try it if they have freelancer style mouse control

      well actually Im flying X with mouse cause the behaviour of the ship is more like in an egoshooter and not like its one in a flight sim .. you nor turn mouse right and the ship turns right ... so its OK with mouse ....
      In flight sims youll fly completley different ...

      Otherwise I dont know what options are in XTC so Ill wait and decide then ^^

      Mouse and KB for me. I'm too much of a FPS and Oblivion freak to get used to a joystick now. I have one, but with about an inch of dust on it. lol
