I don't know how many ppl actually own a strategic commander, but i do. I was wondering if ES is testing the strategic commander with AoM currently. It for the most part works great, but sometimes acts goofy with AoK:TC. Thanks in advance.

strategic Commander, care to tell us what the Hell that is? Please.

hmmm, i can see how it would help in FPS, But i have never had much trouble with that sort of thing in RTS.

It's just designed to pick your pocket... most of the pro FPS & RTS gamers use a mouse and keyboard. I went to the WCG event and saw everybody with some kind of regular or optical mouse and a 5 dollar keyboard =).

Well, i am used to playing with my fingers on the keyboard, (not the arrow keys) and the mouse. Long ago i used to turn with the "side" keys, but i decided that strafing is much better, and so i switched. NOT EASY. Took at least 2 weaks to make strafing feel natural. A while longer to get real good at it.

They probably don't want to relearn all of those keys

It does slow you at first, but once you get used to it there's a significant change in speed. Maybe it's all in my head; I dunno, but i like the product.

As the SC got absolutely nothing to do with the program you are using it for code-wise, why would they?

All it does it that when you presses a button, the computer thinks you are pressing a keyboard-combination instead; and thus that action in the program that is bound to that shortcut is executed.
