VEX, you'll need to combine both sticks into one virtual controller using the X360CE wrapper we recommend (shortcut in your start menu).

One small annoyance is that there is no chat visible while in the score screen, both during and after a match.

Unfortunately there is literally NO way to make this work in UDK (the engine we use). The chat is on the HUD, the scoreboard is OVER the HUD. You can't combine the two.

Sorry. I know it sucks but that's why we want to make a new version of Sol-C down the road...

Thanks for your 'Answer. I tried this tool for several hours, but without any success ;)
This tool shows me both Sticks but in the Game there ist anytime only one. Sometimes I have no axis, other times no buttons. - one time I had Axis on the left stick and Buttons on the right site :lol: - but I cannot reconstruct any state :( :oops:
So i think I'm too silly, too old or both of them ;)
The truth is that my english isn't so good and several things I don't understand, so I hope that there is someone in VEX or Descentforum who can help me.

The game looks so good and I'm so "hungry" to play in the mines. Hope that times come back when we can play 24h like old Descenttimes... :)

VEX-Ben, In the x360ce tool there are tabs to set up multiple virtual gamepads. In order to get my two sticks working I set up one stick in the "Controller 1" tab and the second in the "Controller 2" tab. Then (and this is the important bit) in the Advanced Tab for the controllers I clicked the check box to combine both into one virtual gamepad.

When I get home from work I will see if I can take screenshots of my setup.

So one thing I've noticed so far is that the MAC is kinda odd to use. Not in a "Gee how does this work?" but more of a "How do I know what kind of Charge this thing has?"

A thought I had was a charge bar or charge bips so you could see what level of charge the MAC is at. Otherwise you gotta go by sound.

Morslupus is right, I think. I was thinking "duh, just go by the sound of it. get experience and learn how it works".

But to be honest, not everyone has perfect sound all the time. Because it automatically discharges, it'd be useful to see a charging meter, or something that's more than just an audio clip.

Does anyone have issues with the server browser not always finding all servers? I have to refresh a few times and sometimes it shows only my server and other times I get a single or two USEast servers and not my own. On the next refresh they might all show up.

Good luck! I'll be in and out of the game today. Maybe we'll cross paths :)
