Changelog

  • [Added] Created a full html user README for running and configuring the game
  • [Added] Controller support & extended HOTAS support with Rewired
  • [Added] Default keyboard and gamepad mappings
  • [Added] Controller remapping scene on Desktop in main menu
  • [Added] Virtual HOTAS in cockpit can now be toggled, grabbed, and rotated with oculus touch controllers (not tested on other systems) control over X-Wing flight with virtual hotas not fully implemented
  • [Added] Ability to hide/show virtual HOTAS in cockpit
  • [Added] Ability to hide/show controllers in hands
  • [Updated] Change WMR controller layout to allow all cockpit actions via directional touch-pad mappings.
  • [Updated] Change Dashboard button colliders to be larger and have no overlap to allow for easier use.
  • [Updated] New textures for player wings and engines, for better fidelity when compressed in release
  • [Updated] Change compression ratios on larger textures to hopefully prevent the start crashes that seem to happen erratically on some systems. Think this may be a texture memory limitation issue, due to the fact that I pre-load the entire player X-Wing model/textures on startup since they require the most memory in a scene.
  • [Updated] Death Star Texture on Stage One & Three
  • [Fixed] Shadow near field plane on Ultra settings causes flickering; removed near field plane.
  • [Fixed] WMR mapping for roll movement is now not inverted in default mapping
  • [Fixed] Set skeleton default mappings for Index finger movements. Not able to test if poses still work while gripping controllers.
  • [Fixed] Valve Index recenter action not mapped on controllers
  • [Fixed] Auto-targeting gets stuck on some Tie Fighters even when switching out of Auto-aim mode
  • [Fixed] Increased timer for allowable "Out of Bounds" travel time.
