I'd rather use an xbox controller if an interface is made.

pillview could be the fourth button on the right.... my only concern is the gunsight... perhaps that could be changed to be the buttons on the left and they could be moved elsewhere... i dunno....

The gunsight should be fine where it is. Why do you object to having it on the L1 and L2 buttons?

I don't know if those psx-to-pc controller adapters work for the analog sticks on a dual shock controller, but if they do:

This layout would be quite usable imho, maybe not as good for competitive play as a kb/mouse, but fun for pubbing nonetheless.
How about having the keys so you can set them however u want. Maybe the D-pad for steering, select for toggling pillview, start for tankview, and since the analog sticks can be pushed down as an additional button (R3/L3) u could have even more settings. And Nova, you can buy a gamepad that is an almost exact replica of the PlayStation controller, USB compatable, analog sticks work, everything is the same, except the buttons are numbered instead of labeled with shapes. Some of the brains already developed are awesome. the radar overview thing is handy, and this would be pretty cool to try out.

actually a reverse would be nice, along with a turbo button so you could move 3 squares every frame. That and a mortar, paratroopers, and fighter-jets. hrmmm, supercharged boats, helicopters, anything else? We could assign keys to every one. just a little off topic, but hey, it's just keys

If you can convince Elvis to add those in, good for you. He doesn't seem to do much on the side of expanding on winbolo in that direction. I'd get rid of all those features and just have a reverse button. That would rock.

i got a new controller, it works with winbolo, because with a program that came with it, you can assign letters/keys to the buttons on it. I used the left analog stick for turning, X for gas, [] for brake, L1 for mines, R1 for bullets, right analog for the mouse, push it down, it clicks...

I've tried it a few times, it's easier to line up pilltakes for some reason...

If your shit is too hard, it's probably because you suck too much monkey dick. That is why most doctors recommend newbershittisum tablets. The once a day caplet that guarantees in no way, shape or form that you will become a normal human being. Too bad.

Leave it to Q to turn this into a flame match... Wink

Um, a little off topic from the PS2 controller idea, but I have this, and it works quite nicely for winbolo if you program the buttons correctly. Just a suggestion.
