Subterra hints that we can use a joystick to play the game. But I don't know how to activate it! How do I do it?

Frankly I don't know. I put rudimentary joystick controls in the code, but since I don't have a joystick myself I never had a chance to test it.

Well, did you code in anything to activate joystick control?

You know, it might be nice to use a joystick instead of the keyboard. For one thing, it would save wear & tear on my poor, overabused arrow keys.

Quite true. If you could please send me a joystick over snail mail, so that I can test said code? :)

I'd love for SubTerra to support gamepads. And run on a Mac, and a Wii, and a PSP. But I'm afraid I can't test any of that with my current setup.

I just bought a USB gamepad, very cheap, seems to work well.

I'd be glad to send you one by snail mail if you want to use it for developing the game (PM me your address).
