No where in my post am I "DEMANDING" anything. I was simply enquiring if anyone had the knowledge to fix it. I would read peoples posts carefully before replying next time. :P
I'm actually capable of not just reading but also interpreting posts of other users and wouldn't complain about someone exaggerating a little bit. :P
The problem is, however, that you claim that the original game used to behave differently and that it's particularly the GOG release that's broken (at least that's what you wrote in another thread) while this certainly isn't the case. I started playing the retail version on Windows 98 and back then the controls were already exactly the same as in the GOG release (that's also what my buddy says). Your mind must be playing tricks on you. Maybe you just mastered the dumb controls back then and didn't perceive them as laggy. Or, somehow, you actually had a version with some rare inofficial fix although I highly doubt that.
Of course there still is a slight chance that on your system the game behaves even weirder than it should but in that case it's also not the GOG version but your system that's broken.
Btw: I also don't own a single console (except for an Atari 2600) but that doesn't keep me from using gamepads occasionally - especially oldschool gamers who like playing such classics as Incoming or Wing Commander should definitely have one at home.
No mate, the controls back in 98 were not like the GOG release. I do remember what they were like, my mind isn't playing tricks on me and I'm sure plenty of others on here would agree that the mouse controls don't work right.
I can remember moving the turrets around fine back then without any lag. So what you're saying is that when you played it back in 98 when you moved the mouse to control the turrets etc it either took ages to move, looked straight up at the sky or didn't move at all? I find that highly unlikely. I don't think the game would have been well received back then had Rage released it like that.
I have also had people who played the game back then and remember how it was also tell me the controls in the GOG release are not right.
I don't think it's my system either as I've tried the game on several systems and it behaves the same way.
On the gamepad issue I guess it's just what you're used to at the end of the day.
