Thats ridiculous!! What do you use to play it on the X-BOX? A gamepad. And with the PS2? A gamepad. But you can't use a gamepad on a PC? Why not? Does anyone else find that kinda silly? I think someone at UbiSoft needs to pull their head out and come out with a patch or update that will let gamepads play the game on PC. I have MS Sidewinder here I just bought that is useless when it comes to this game, thanks.

To KDOG30,

GR for PC gamers was ment for keyboard and mouse so game pads weren't supported. And joysticks are out of the question for this game toooooooooo sloooooowwwwwwww/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

To KDOG30,

One other thing it's alot quicker to type a message while your playing on a keyboard than dropping your game pad and then using your keyboard.

By the time you have done that you may have my bullit in your head. The mouse has a better response time to gamepad. But i can see where your coming from and I suppose they should make it so you can.

You wouldn't get me using one/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

If you want to use your gamepad, play a console. This game was meant for the keyboard/mouse combo.


Use it for once, and you'll see just how much inferior your gamepad is.

Remember that for XBox and PS2 GR was ported over from a PC game which it was originally designed for.

Hey I've just picked up a strtgic commander & intialy it was a bit wierd. But as I'm still a newbie of sorts I don't think it'l take to long to adjust & I think once I've set up the profile well & got use to it I think It'l Rock.

Hey I might even be kicking your butt one day.

It's handy as well the way the buttons are grouped as well ie 3 x 3 x 3 cos of the Alpha, beta, charle, suppress advance assault bla bla bla.

as were on the subject does anybody else use one of these thing & is so what profile setup works for you.

ps. I literaly got it last night.(the Stategic commander I mean.)

To Emperor_Ming,

I tried one of them in the store but I just couldn't get the feel. I think you have got the upper hand because your new to the game and you can adapt quicker before the mouse and keyboard sets in..../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

A keyboard and mouse (or trackball) setup is far superior to a gamepad design when playing FPS like GR.

A patch? You don't want a patch. Think about it, dude. Just wheel the white block in front of your soldier and the bullets will bounce right back at the tangos!

If at first you don't suceed...call in an Airstrike!

C/SrA, Stephens Co. Comp. Sqdn, GA Wing Civil Air Patrol, the USAF Auxiliary

"Fighters Vs Bombers"

An F-18 was flying escort with a B-52 and generally making a nuisance of himself by flying rolls around the lumbering old bomber. The message for the B-52 crew was, "Anything you can do, I can do better."
Not to be outdone, the bomber pilot announced that he would rise to the challenge. The B-52 continued its flight, straight and level. Perplexed, the fighter pilot asked, "So? What did you do?"

"We just shut down two engines."

Please Download the Australian Defence Forces Mod v3.1 and its Desert Siege add on, from http://www.ghostrecon.net
so that all you yanks can see just how awesome the Australian SAS is (for your info, they served in Afganistan and are on their way to Iraq).

PS. Aussies dont really carry hand help minguns (they are features in the mod) but they are lost of fun in a firefight.

On the gamepad note, take it from someone who has played PC and PS2 GR, If you have a gamepad, and you are playing versus people with mice, you will assurdely get your rear end handed to you in a short amount of time. There is no periphial device on the market, that once mastered, can move and track a target faster and more accurately than a mouse. I can only dream that my enemies would switch to game pads. And while I agree the keyboard is somewhat clunky, you can always reconfigure it to suit your hand. I use the default GR controls, and i do just fine.
