Hey! I would like to say the tank game is fun, but the amateur bot level could be a bit too good for some people (like my gf). Also, will there be support for other gamepads than xbox controllers? And will co-op mode be playable via lan/internet connection as well?
Just some questions and remarks.
Hi there thanks for the feedback! Yes unfortunately all the play testing that went into the tank game was just among a small group of friends. Since we have been playing the game for over a year now we don't really have an idea of how difficult the game is for a new player any more (as you and others have stated the game is probably far too difficult starting out) . I will try to pm you a link to a build where I have lowered the difficulty in a minute if you want to try that out.
About using non Xbox controllers the game is made using XNA which doesn't include support for them natively but there is still definitely a possibility of having them supported. What non xbox controller did you want to try and use? Also yes I definitely want to make co-op playable via lan/online in a future update.
I tried using a thrustmaster dual trigger 3-in-1, wich is suited for both PC and Playstation, it has a different cable-output for each. I am comfortable with the difficulty as-is to start out, but for people with less..skill to begin with, it is in fact quite hard. I don't think she needs the link though. I tried using the controller because co-op on lan was not supported. I'm glad to hear lan co-op might be supported in a future update :-).
Ah okay, I don't want the game to be far to easy I would rather it be challenging than boring, but there is quite a bit to figure out stating. I don't have much time to work on the game during the week but I will try and get co-op over network. You should be able host a lan game and play on the same team vs some bots as a cheap co-op substitute.
