I know there were a lot of keyboard players back in the day, but I couldn’t get into I ’76 without a joystick. I had already broken in my trusty Sidewinder 3D Pro in Mechwarrior 2 and Multiplayer Battletech: Solaris, and Interstate ’76 used a very similar control setup, so it seemed like a perfect match.
For me, it was.
So, I tried to find the closest thing to that Sidewinder that I could – the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro. It’s even close in name. Despite some mixed reviews on Amazon, I have nothing but good things to say about the controller. I didn’t bother installing any of its software, instead just plugging it in and watching it go. Works fine for I ’76. I’ll probably test it out in Mechwarrior 2 soon enough.
But, on to the point, I promised that I’d begin working on the I ’76 TRIP walkthrough as soon as I picked up the joystick. I’m keeping my promise. Along with a slew of random updates on the site, the I ’76 walkthrough is up through Scene 11. I plan to have the rest of it done fairly soon. So y’all come back, ya here?Mechwarrior 2: The Clans Walked Through »
