Will Strike Suit Zero support other joysticks? or joysticks with throttle control? I'd love to use the Ace Edge (from ace combat 6) to control the thrust, slam the throttle down to turn into the mech and slam it up to speed away.
I guess "Belguim" is "Belgium"...
I just updated my pledge from wing commander to omega pilot because I just couldn't resist the itch of getting my hands on this joystick
I was just pondering if I still get my beta access even if I changed my pledge?
@HarryLuong -- we've put a lot of time and effort into all compatible control schemes, but for old-school space combat fans, there's something special about a joystick -- you really get that sense of immersion.
@light487 @roman @stephan -- delivery isn't handled by us, and - for now at least - we can only deliver to US, Canada and the EU countries stated. Apologies for this - the logistics aren't under our control with this one.
@Tom Jefferson -- it's not just US :) Canada and most of the EU are covered, too.
Pity its only for the US.
@Leigh - Yup.. I'll most likely play the game with keyboard mouse anyway.. I just dislike companies that leave Australia out of the equation. Have you heard of OzGameShop? They ship from UK, with free shipping, at half the retail cost within Australia. I just find it hard to swallow when I see other companies charging bucket loads for shipping or saying it's too difficult or expensive.
I also dislike the shipping model on KS where all the shipping is done from US even when the company is in Australia or NZ, as I have seen in other projects.
It's the principle of the thing.
@ light487, it's not licensing as you can buy that joystick here so it's probably about delivery costs (which would be higher to here, granted). You'd probably be better off buying it locally, it's a $35 joystick anyhow and if it costs more than the omega tier you may as well just buy it now yourself, you'd only be saving $5 with the omega tier and that's if it were available to us.
Well, I think this is the first time I see an EU exclusive tier, and shipping costs are included ?!
You got me, thanks !
This is great news! I will be sure to let my friend know, he was sad to miss out on the first batch.
I already have a HOTAS setup, luckily ;)
can we get a tier where i can get a joystick delivered to little old New Zealand? :(
"Can't" deliver to Australia? What is the reason behind that lack of ability?
I find this very odd.. is it s licensing issue on the joysticks themselves?
Do you guys (Born Ready) recommend playing the game with a joystick? I've played previous space sims with keyboard & mouse, joysticks, and gamepads. The input that I use is kind of determined by how the controls are designed.
So if I am from Slovakia (country between Poland and Hungary) I cannot go for the OMEGA tier? The list of "supported" countries is kind of strange.
Unfortunately, we can't deliver to Asia or Australia at this stage. Apologies! We'll look into this for the future, however...
@BRG Sorry to bring up a previous point, but what about those of us situated in East? (: (Asia, Australia etc.)
Should we pledge at the US level and add shipping costs maybe?
Ah thanks BRG. Deals upon deals o:
@Cerxi -- if you're from Canada, go Alpha.
Which tier does? The Alpha or the Omega?
Ah, thanks for clearing that up!
Thanks for the fast answer! I can't wait for the game.
@Alex Abbott -- yes, the tier includes delivery to Canada! :)
@r0estir0bbe unfortunately the joysticks are exclusive to the ALPHA, OMEGA and ACE PILOT reward tiers at this stage.
Yeah like alex I'm wondering about those of us living in canada, what tier should we grab to get it? I mean I'm pretty sure it's cheaper to ship to canada than to ship to europe, but it's still not the same as US.
Oh well, not like I needed those 80 bucks, anyway. Once, way back when I discovered this, I only wanted to be a Cadet. Honestly. Gosh-darn you all to heck. :)
So, I cant get a joystick if I live in Canada? Shame.
Dear devs, could you update your nice reward picture from update #5? Especially if every reward tier above $80 get's the joystick too - I guess probably not, right? ;)
I'm part of the Fleet Conductor, if I select Alpha Pilot while still giving 250, do I get all of Fleet conductor while getting the Logitech Extreme?
No Joystick for Asian?
No Asia :sad-bear-guy:
Thanks guys! Now to get the DLC extras!
It seems like the delivery fee is not included at the 80$ pledge...
Hi Josh -- yes, you'll still be on the beta! :)
I was already one of the first 1000 to get the Wing Commander level pledge. Do I still get the Beta access?
What about non US/EU backers at the original ACE level? Can we back at Alpha and add costs for shipping?
:-( only US, how about Australia.
doh. disregard my earlier comment. I only looked at the 70$ option, didn't realise there was one lower down for EU backers
US only I see :(
